10 exquisite family-friendly luxury hotels in Spain

When making our bucket list of 10 gorgeous Mediterranean resorts, I was spoilt with choice. So much so, that I decided to feature all these other hotels that I held onto, anyway. To keep things organized, I’ll be sharing these gems by country. Hope you haven’t made all your summer vacation plans yet? 🙂 First up is the country of tapas and paella. Here’s my selection of family-friendly luxury hotels in Spain.

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 of these hotels 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.
