It’s no coincidence that this one’s first on this list. What a gem! It’s also located in our favorite Spanish region: Andalusia. Cities such as Sevilla, Granada and Cordoba are all within easy reach. So is the beach. And yes, I usually prefer beachfront properties but for exceptional hotels such as this one, I gladly bend the rules. The generous pool and amazing garden would make me forget all about the beach. La Bobadilla counts as one of the best quiet family resorts in Spain.
You have 5 star hotels and then you have the Puente Romano Beach Resort, which is a class of its own. This hotel offers authenticity allover but it’s also well equipped to offer every traveling family a carefree vacation. Kids are spoiled with choice when it comes to activities. Although I might just take the girls for a spa treatment too. It’s no surprise that this resort earned the Condé Nast Traveler Award for best resort in Spain so it definitely deserves its spot in this list of family-friendly luxury hotels in Spain.
Located only 40 minutes driving from Barcelona, this hotel offers a stunning beachfront experience. Le Méridien hotels are known to be very child-friendly and this one is no exception. It is also equipped with a large spa to keep parents just as busy as their kids.
Located only 10 minutes driving from Marbella, this golf hotel is a true family haven.

Family-friendly doesn’t even cover the facilities on offer in this resort and it’s just a short stroll from the nearest beach. It’s the kind of place where you’ll feel right at home.
Another one of our family-friendly luxury hotels in the Spain is this stylish hotel, located just north of Barcelona and near Girona, at the site of the renowned PGA Catalunya Golf Resort. What a great home base for visits in the area. The domain looks so meticulously manicured with plenty of space for the girls to run around. The hotel prides itself on the family-friendliness and this is reflected in the many activities on offer.
Located on the north side of the island, far away from the glitzy nightlife, you find this oasis of tranquility. Amidst the natural park of Els Amunts, perched on a cliff, this gem offers the most spectacular coastal views. If you’re looking for the pure and sophisticated Ibiza, then this is where you’ll find it.

This stunning beachfront hotel is our favorite in the city of Valencia. And we’re speaking from personal experience because, even though this list of family-friendly luxury hotels in Spain is in our ‘bucketlist’ category, we’ve tried and tested this specific hotel.

Yet another hotel that oozes family-friendliness.
