12 exquisite family-friendly luxury hotels in Spain

When making our bucket list of Mediterranean family luxury resorts, I was spoilt with choice. So much so, that I decided to feature all these other hotels that I held onto as well. First up is the country of tapas and paella. Here’s my selection of family-friendly luxury hotels in Spain. Hope you haven’t made all your summer vacation plans yet? 🙂

Prices in July and August are not that easy on the wallet but, even in high season, Spain still offers a lot of value for money. That being said, many luxury family hotels in Spain have heated pools and offer plenty of other activities so you could possibly score a better deal during an extended weekend in May or the last week of June without compromising on amenities.
