Spanish hotels off the mainland
The Spanish islands are hugely popular, and you’ll find yourself with plenty of choice when you travel to Spain this year with lastminute.com. The famous Spanish Canary Islands have a family-friendly atmosphere that’s perfect for a relaxing holiday. The islands themselves are slightly further around the corner of Africa, and further from the Spanish mainland, so they enjoy an even hotter temperature. If you choose to stay here you’ll be greeted by blue sky and sea, not to mention the typical palm tree beach settings you see on post cards.
Majorca offers a great getaway spot just off of Spain’s coast. Once you fly into Palma, you’ll be faced with a choice of destination depending how you feel like spending your trip. Travel out to the quieter northern parts of the island like Alcudia or Port de Pollence, or else stay in Palma for a livelier holiday.
Of course if a lively holiday is what you’re looking for then there’s nowhere better than Ibiza. The famous party island has hotels that are rivalled almost nowhere else in the world. Save up and stay in the ultra-high end Grand Palladium or Hard Rock Ibiza for a once in a lifetime trip.
On the mainland
If you’re more interested in mainland Spain, then you’ll have a similar amount of choice when it comes to popular tourist destinations. Malaga plays host to vibrant complexes such as Tryp Guadalmar. These types of all-inclusive resorts are extremely popular and can supply you with plenty to fill your time with.
No matter which Spanish city or village you choose, you’ll see plenty of tours, whether they be on foot or by bike. The Malaga bike tours with Kay Farrell are particularly popular, taking you through the pretty streets and pointing out major landmarks. Of course Tapas tours are not uncommon either, showing you the local food and giving you chance to walk off a couple of calories at the same time.
For something a little quieter, you might like to see Seville. This classical Spanish town is home to the Plaza de Espana, a huge open square, full of busy cafes and restaurants for you to try. Not too far from there you can also visit the medieval Islamic palace of Alcazar. Here you can view the large gardens and ornate buildings that make for great photo opportunities. Seville is home to a multitude of quieter, more typically Spanish hotels, so take your pick and prepare for a relaxing trip away.
