Holiday with grandkids!! Where to stay ?

Thinking of going next year with hubbie and grandkids aged 4 &2. Would prefer self catering, 1 or 2 bedrooms, something onsite for kids or really near the beach. Not on a hill, has to be on the flat.

Not fussed about resort, Torremolinos, Fuengerola. Would consider A/I.

Would like a really nice place to stay, no dumps lol.

Thanks in advance all you experts out there.

Torremolinos Beach Club is great for families. Right across from beach, about 20mins walk along prom to centre of resort but bus stops right outside hotel and train station is about 5 mins walk behind hotel. Can get good flights from prestwick/edin/glasgow and hotel can be booked direct. Heading there in few weeks from prestwick with 13 & 9 year old and will be 2nd visit. Hotel has great pools and is A/I so great for kids eating & drinking (even had pizza & pasta bar in restaurant)

There are lots and lots of hotels and resorts all along the coast. The beach club is just one and not even one of the best, though it is certainly popular because it is AI and good value. Many are aimed squarely at families and as I don't travel with children I can't really make recommendations about one over another but as a starting point browse the lists here...

The Riu Nautilus gets good reviews as do any of the Don hotels. Hotel Isabel is nice.

Have a look in brochures or on-line packages and see which takes your fancy. Then look at the reviews here to see if the resort gets good reviews. If you've got specific questions about a resort or hotel then come back and ask them.

Hi - we've been with grandkids a lot to that area - and have preferred to get flight and have a "home from home" flat. Found it more relaxing. Drawback is that there is no on-site club though - but it does work out a lot cheaper than a package. A nice area to stay is La Cariheula and towards the Marina - there are a few good aparthotels along that way - and the kids love feeding the fish etc in the marina. As you can see from name = am from Dundee also
