Landmar Costa Los Gigantes
If what you’re looking for is an easy, fun and relaxed family holiday then Landmar Costa Los Gigantes is no exception. Matilda and I spent 4 nights here with a friend and her 4 year old back in May (2023) and had such a lovely break. It’s an easy place to take the family as there is so much to do with young children and it’s only 4 hours from the UK. Pack a few travel toys for the flight and they will have the time of their lives. The children will love the entertainment programme, and the two huge pools, splash parks and high rope, honestly we didn’t want to leave!
Holidays with Kids – What’s Important in a Family Resort?
We all look forward to a family holiday, a bit of escapism, creating lifelong memories, a break from the norm, sunshine, trying new activities and delicious food. It is definitely good for the soul. One thing we are always first to seek out when booking a holiday with kids is a family-friendly resort. These are so important as they often have play areas, facilities especially for kids including kids clubs and those all important bigger rooms – and yes the Lamdmar Costa Los Gigantes has just this!

We stayed at Landmar Costa Los Gigantes.

We loved our room for 5, if felt like such a treat that a hotel could actually cater for us. We over looked the pool and sea which was perfect for early mornings and late evenings. The room even had a blackboard and a fun pop-up tent as I’m sure you can imagine were a huge hit with the children, and a massive help whilst we were all trying to get ready to go out!
