With less than 100 days to go until the big day (we can’t believe it either) and the number of people choosing to enjoy their mince pies with blue skies on the rise, we’ve chosen some of our top hotels that are perfect for family holidays at Christmas. We know yule just love them…
Sol Lanzarote, Lanzarote
The 4* Sol Lanzarote is the ideal place to enjoy a sun-kissed Christmas with the family. Overlooking the beach, the hotel offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean offering a Christmas view that you won’t forget in a hurry. The hotel is also newly refurbished and boasts a handful of irregular shaped pools, making this the perfect place to relax over the festive period.
For those who fancy exploring their new surroundings, Matagorda shopping centre is just 200m away and has a wide range of shops to suit all, whether you’re looking to treat yourself, or treat someone back home. A full entertainment programme is offered while you’ll also be able to take part in a wide range of sports including ping-pong, darts and volleyball.
Moon Palace, Mexico
For a Christmas a little further afield, we recommend setting your sights on the 5* Moon Palace in Mexico. The hotel is surrounded by 123 acres of exotic gardens that lead to the white sands of the Mayan Riviera (talk about a white Christmas)…
There are SEVEN swimming pools at the hotel, two of which are the largest in Cancun, as well as Jacuzzis, a spa and two fitness centres. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also 15 (yes, 15) restaurants serving a range of cuisines from Mexican, Italian, Caribbean and more while you can enjoy a drink in one of the 12 bars.
Iberostar Las Dalias, Tenerife
With an average December temperature of 17°C, Tenerife is a popular choice with families wanting to escape the cold weather over the Christmas period. The 4* Iberostar Las Dalias in Costa Adeje is centrally located and just a short stroll from San Eugenio shopping centre and the beach.
There are also two freshwater pools for adults and a separate pool for kids while sports facilities include billiards and a squash court. During the day, the talented team run a kids club while evening entertainment includes karaoke, themed shows and magicians.
