Decent family resort for cheap package

(10 Posts)

We've got an unexpected sum of money & want to take our first family holiday abroad grin . Ideally all inclusive so we know the cost upfront, not bothered where we go & we're not expecting super fancy accommodation but likewise want to avoid a massive party destination. definitely want good pool(s) near a beach & some sort of kids activities/sports for at least some of the day for our 5&8 yr old. We'll need to go out of school holidays to get something for our budget (£1,500) so probably looking June/early July.

Any recommendations either of specific resorts or canny ways to find a good package as I've tried some of the big websites & get thousands of holidays that all look the same!

Just to give you an idea...

Found Ryan Air flights East Mids to Mallorca on 14/6 for £355 (but no hold luggage)

And AI 7 nights at a 4* Iberostar (v child friendly) for £1015

So balance for transfers or car hire or hold luggage?|utmccn=(not%20set)|utmcmd=(not%20set)|utmctr=iberostar%20pinos%20park&__utmv=1.|5=Visitantes=1396189146955=1&__utmk=202751889

Sorry Phoebe - have a look at the Iberostar site I was looking at Club Cala Barca but discounts too at Alucida. You need to play around with the currency and board basis.

(NB. have had consistently lovely holidays in these hotels - good for both adullts and kids).

I've been to iberostar Cala Barca and enjoyed it. The accommodation is good for families as you get two separate rooms with one entrance.

what airports can you fly from?

On the Thomson website, flying from Birmingham you can go to Tenerife and stay here This has a free child place and is within budget.

It will come in £27 over budget but again going from Birmingham you can go to turkey

If you look on the first choice/Thomson websites you can always pick up free child places for 1 child, just add it to your search.

The holiday villages on first choice are good for kids, the one in kos in Greece is nice and has a beach opposite, it's all inclusive, very safe and the kids will never be bored grin

Sorry to be a miseryguts, but you may be fined for taking your children out of school for a holiday during termtime.
For destinations, how about Majorca, especially Sol Alcudia Centre? We had a great holiday with dd, 4.
