Mallorca is incredibly popular as a destination for family vacations. What goes in favor for Mallorca are short flights, clean beaches and pleasant climate almost all year round. As are the splendid accommodations. Mallorca and its people are generally very child-friendly. There is hardly an area where children are not welcome.
Nevertheless, some lodgings have adapted better to families with children than others. It is those especially child-friendly hotels that we want to talk about here. We have tried to make the selection as small as possible and as diverse as necessary. There are family hotels in Majorca with comprehensive entertainment programs and animation. But equally, we have included small family-run hotels for kids that are further away from the tourist hustle and bustle. I am sure that there is something for everyone!
You don’t really like hotels and prefer individual stays at a farmhouse or villa? Then get inspired here.
