Where will have pools warm enough or a 3 year old to swim in during the last week of May/first week June?

^ looking to rebook with TUI for these 2 weeks all inclusive, family and good with allergies. I’m struggling to work out if Cyprus or The Canaries will be warm enough. If not there then where?

Canaries will be warm, approaching 30º by June. Beach or resort pools? Depending on the island and specific area the sea might not be super warm yet, so if warm sea water is a requirement I’d select the island and side of it very carefully.

Canaries but check if pool is heated. Some heat year round and some are only winter months.

We went to Sardinia in early June and it was glorious. The beaches tend to be gently shelving so the sea was fine for toddlers.

Mostly swimming in the pool. Will an unheated pool be too cold at this time of year?

We went to Crete that week and the unheated pool was a bit on the cold side. My teens managed ok with it, but a 3yr old maybe not.

I'm a bit of a softy and find unheated pools too cold even if it's in the height of summer. Toddlers and DCs could wear all in one swimsuits to make it a bit less chilly and as they're splashing around so much they don't seem to notice the lack of heat so much, but of course if you need an adult to accompany them then you need to be comfortable as well

Lanzarote. It will be lovely that time of year. We adore playa Blanca. Great for families.

Thanks guys. From what I can see so far most pools are only heated until the end of April.

Canaries will be warm. When you choose your hotel put heated pool or cold pool in the search box on Trip Advisor to see what other travellers have said. You can even narrow it down to the month they travelled in too.

I don't leave anything to chance and a heated pool is a must for me.

We went to Cyprus in April and the weather was lively. Low 20s at least. The pool was unheated and still rather cold for me. But the sea was not too bad in comparison!
