Sandy Beach Hotel:  How to enjoy a family holiday in Gran Canaria

It’s time to spend quality time with the family and take a break from the hectic routine.  And what better way to have fun with the children than a trip to paradise? The island of Gran Canaria and our Seaside Sandy Beach Hotel is all you need to make lasting family memories.

Why travel to Gran Canaria with children?

One of the biggest challenges when travelling with children, especially toddlers, is the journey. Long tiring journeys with stopovers can be a stressful experience and may not be the ideal choice, especially after spending a few days relaxing. That’s why Gran Canaria is the perfect destination: it only takes 3 hours by plane from the mainland to arrive on this wonderful island.

In addition, Gran Canaria offers a great number of activities to enjoy a family trip. You can slide down water slides at Aqualand Maspalomas and enjoy the rides and entertainment at Holiday World Maspalomas, where there is bowling, karaoke and escape rooms.

Apart from all these activities, if you love nature, in Gran Canaria you will find unique landscapes worthy of admiration and if you want to learn more about the fauna and flora of the island, we recommend visiting Palmitos Park, a botanical garden, aviary, aquarium and a zoo where you can see flamingos, dolphins, Komodo dragons and giant cactus.

Activities for children at the hotel

Sandy Beach is the perfect hotel to discover the island of Gran Canaria with the best amenities for a luxury stay both in terms of facilities and the services we offer.

Our hotel has 14 family rooms, a swimming pool for children and another one for babies and toddlers, a children’s playground and a mini-club and mini disco where the little ones will be able enjoy different activities which have been designed especially for them.

Children can enjoy the island in a unique way thanks to our recreational areas with plenty of games to play such as pool, table tennis, boccia, darts, table football or even tennis. We also offer bicycles for rent so that you can take a pleasant ride with your family while contemplating the island’s breathtaking views.

And to top it all off we also have a fun and varied children’s entertainment programme which includes activities in the Mini Club such as games, competitions and crafts so that the little ones can enjoy their stay while the grown-ups relax in our spa and swimming pools.
