Holidays for Teenagers

Holidays for teenagers

Let's be honest, there are only so many replays of Danza Kuduro that the teens can take. Although, we can't relate. We still think it's a banger. But chances are, kids' clubs and playgrounds just aren't going to cut it anymore for the big kids. It's all about the games rooms, the drinks on tap, the watersports (the plunge-you-into-the-sea kind, not the quiet-pedalo-ride-with-Dad kind). Oh, and the Wi-Fi, obvs, because heaven forbid they go more than a week without keeping their pals back home updated on what they're doing. Trust us - we've got some of the best hotels for teenagers that are guaranteed to score you some serious parent points. They're proper sick. Yeah, we're down with the kids.

Tenerife holidays with teenagers

Tenerife holidays get a big fat 10 from us, and we’re pretty sure they’ll get the same from your teens. Hard Rock Tenerife is one for the cool kids, with tons of sports and activities on site - including guitar lessons. Let’s just leave that there. If you’ve got a pool fanatic on your hands though, then Paradise Park Fun Lifestyle Hotel has several to dunk into, and GF Victoria has a waterpark AND a surf pool, so you don’t even need to hit the beach to catch a wave.

Best hotels for teenagers in Turkey

When it comes to entertainment, Turkey doesn't mess about. Boredom? We don't know her. So, yeah - we're recommending these hotels for teenagers, but they're also a little bit for you. Okay, a lot for you, depending how you feel about wave pools, waterslides and family rooms with oodles of space. We feel pretty good about it. (That's Orka Sunlife Resort & Aquapark, if you're wondering.) We'll cut to the chase - all of these hotels have whopping waterparks, but even if that's not enough to win 'em over, Delphin BE GRAND Resort's literally got a cinema AND a bowling alley on site, and IC Hotels Santai Family Resort has more sports than your teen'll know what to do with.

Spain holidays with teenagers

A trip to Beni isn’t just for you and the guys from work - it can also make for a great family holiday with the teens! We’ve handpicked two absolute Benidorm staples - the action-packed Magic Robin Hood with its Robin Hood theme and bungalow cabins that’ll give your kids all the space they need, and Magic Natura Animal Waterpark, which has spacious lodges for the whole fam, entry to the wildlife park and waterpark, and FREE pizza delivery service on the all-inclusive package. And if your teens fancy building their own burgers, hitting some pretty huge waterslides and having a theme park on their doorstep, then Sol Katmandu Park & Resort is where it’s at. You can always count on Spain to come through with the goods.

Long-haul holidays with teenagers

Now that the kids are a bit older, it might be time to finally book in that long-haul holiday you’ve been dreaming of. Scratch that, it is time. We’re telling you. Thankfully, these guys have got you and your teens covered. Atlantis The Palm is gonna have the teens (and you) mindblown, with over 150(!!!) waterslides, a bowling alley and an underwater cinema. We know. Told you it'd blow your mind. There's loads going on at Centara Mirage Beach in Dubai, too - from beach sports to fire-breathing shows at night. (We know. So much cooler than the kids’ disco.) And if your kids aren’t a fan of sharing a room because you’re ‘cramping their style’, then Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya’s Duplex Suites will sort you right out. Bags of space, and there’s a waterpark and an adventure park (with aerial courses) right on your doorstep. If they try telling you they’re too cool for a zipline, they’re lying.

Best hotels for teenagers in Cyprus

If your teens are all about that beach (we can relate), then a holiday to Cyprus needs to be on your radar. It’s hot and it’s full of beaches to sprawl out on, parachute over, take photos of…whatever you want to, really. St. Raphael Resort is right along the coast and it’s packed with all-inclusive food and drink options - including one of the only vegan restaurants in the area, and - in fact - ALL the restaurant menus at this place have a heavy focus on vegan food, if that’s something you’re looking for. Or, if it’s just good ol’ watersports and activities, then Sunrise Pearl Hotel & Spa and Anastasia Beach Hotel both get a big thumbs up from us. And maybe a cheeky ✌️ from the kids.

Portugal holidays with teenagers

If the classic beach spots are a bit too ‘basic’ for your kids’ liking, then Portugal might just be your happy medium for a holiday with teenagers. Introducing…Jupiter Albufeira Hotel - Family & Fun. Ignore any fake gag noises or eye rolls you get in response to the name - it’s not as cringey as it sounds. It’s actually just a pretty great place to zip down a waterslide, have a go at archery and kick back at the teen club. And if you’ve got a gamer on your hands, then the games room at Aquashow Park Hotel will go down an absolute treat - not to mention the waterpark, whilst Grande Real Santa Eulalia Resort & Hotel Spa has free Wi-Fi and a beachfront location, which - sometimes - is all they need!

Hotels with the best rooms for families with teenagers

If interconnecting rooms were a bowl of porridge in The Three Little Bears story, they'd be just right. But they're not porridge. They're rooms where your teens can have their own space - including their own bathroom (which, if you're tired of knocking over bottles of face wash and picking up wet towels, this might be the answer to your prayers). Only they'll be connected to your room with an internal door, so you've got just enough space, but can still keep an eye on them. Paradisus Gran Canaria and Estival El Dorado both offer these, but why stop there? The Land of Legends in Turkey - overachiever that it is, has rooms kitted out with PlayStations, projector screens and 3D glasses. If that's not cool enough for the kids, we don't know what is.

Best destinations for holidays with teenagers

Teens - too cool to tag along with Mum and Dad on holiday, but not too cool for you to do all their washing. Gotta love 'em. If that sounds familiar, then it's why choosing the right destination for your family holiday is MEGA important. It can be the difference between being the best parents ever, or having a bored, hangry grump on your hands. And we don't mean Dad. Not this time, anyway. These destinations all have a bit of something going on, so whether you've got a sporty daredevil or just someone who wants to connect to the Wi-Fi and chill by the pool all day, these guys won't disappoint.

We've got plenty more family holidays to choose from
