Went to Sharm el Sheikh (egypt) with a DD in a wheelchair it had loads of stuff for kids and was very flat, But you must must must explain that you need a ground floor or else they will not give you one. Egypt was good value for money to.

I strongly recommend Tenerife.
Between las Americas and los cristianos, the beaches have wheelchair access. (there is a rehab center there, so they are extremely well organised for disabled). Most restaurants and hotels have slides, lifts, and you can even rent the wheelchair there. Normal or electric.
Nightlife in las Americas is everywhere and kids have a great time. There is even a surfing school for kids if your heart is strong enough!!

I have found this wbsite. The are ATOL bonded, so provide FInancial Protection when you book a package holiday.


I would not suggest the Caribbean, most of the aiports do not supply 'jetways' and your mum would have to walk up to baord the plane and go up steps to the aircraft. But you would need to check that out and it depends on her requirements really.
