I'd just look on the net for deals and see where you'd like to go. Some of the packages aren't too bad, although not sure if it's too late for free child places.
We're going to Majorca but when I looked it wasn't that cheap in August (although we booked all the bits separately so a package may be cheaper).

I live in Turkey (but not in a touristy bit!)
Try around Antalya and Side.
Touristy but less Brita here (the south) than to the west (Bodrum,Marmaris) unless that is what you want.
There are scores of resorts.
I suggest borrowing a guide book form the library and trawling through it.
Bit bloody hot now though.
I was in Side in November and still swimming in the sea.
