In this article, I have highlighted the best family-friendly hotels and apartments in Tenerife to save you some time. But I’ve also divided them between different areas where to stay in Tenerife with your family.
Whether you’re lusting after a five star resort by the beach or a budget friendly, self catered villa, I’ve chosen properties which will appeal to parents with young children.
Be it a fantastic location, spacious bedrooms or the best kids club in town, you’re sure to find your perfect accommodation here. So are you ready to explore the most beautiful beaches on the island and have guaranteed sunshine all year around?
However, you need to know a few things before booking your family friendly hotel or apartment.
Tenerife is one of the Canary Islands that benefits a great sunny weather all year round due to the proximity of West Africa. The volcanic island has been among the favourite family friendly destinations for holidays in October or February for those of you who don’t go skiing. Equally, Spring and Summer are great seasons to go and visit Tenerife with guaranteed sunshine and temperature reaching up over 30°C.

With a little less than 1 million inhabitants, Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary Islands with the busy capital of Santa Cruz of Tenerife. Moreover, the island welcomes over 5 million tourists every year. So expect some busy areas during school holidays even though the island is big enough to enjoy peaceful walks or trails with the kids.
We would recommend 3 areas where to stay in Tenerife with your family:
1. Costa Adeje
If you come for the first time in Tenerife, this is probably the best area to stay with your little tribe. Costa Adeje is located in the Southern coast of Tenerife. There are amazing hotels with family rooms such as Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife or Baobab Suites. And you can enjoy the proximity of fabulous parks such Siam Park or Aqualand.
2. Guía de Isora
Located on the West coast of Tenerife, Guía de Isora is quieter than the South part of the island and benefits from the protection of the mountains. You will have to pay a visit to the small fishing village of Playa San Juan. Hotels within this region we can recommend below are Allegro Isora as well as Gran Melia Palacio de Isora.
3. Playa de Las Américas
Situated on the South of Costa Adeja, Playa de Las Américas is a purpose built resort for holidaymakers. It is not too far from the fishing village Los Christianos. Playa de Las Américas is the nightlife hub of the South of the island. However, some great kids friendly hotels are to be considering such as Coral Compostela Beach or Green Garden Resort.
When is the best time to visit and stay in Tenerife with the Family?
As you can see below, Tenerife enjoys a very nice weather all year round with little rain in Winter. With temperature above 20ºC in October, it makes a great half term holiday destination. But Easter holidays and summer are also very busy with families.
