4- Hotel Global Playa Estepona****

This is one of those hotels that you will never want to leave: not only because it is an all-inclusive hotel on the beachfront, but also because it is the largest hotel with a water park on the Costa del Sol. Its rooms were renovated in 2016 and some of them are adapted for people with reduced mobility. It is a hotel that is specially designed for families, therefore, they have everything you may need during your stay. Among the services that stand out for children are the two children’s pools, the gardens, a mini-club, a games room and the best entertainment for all ages.

The best is undoubtedly the Splash Word, the water park where you will discover all kinds of attractions. Its Kamikaze, with 12 meters high, whirlpools, blackholes and free fall for thrill seekers, but if you are more relaxed, you can enjoy the wave pool and the three adult pools.

Also worth mentioning is its restaurant, prepared to serve half a thousand diners, where you can freely access an exquisite buffet of Mediterranean food.

5- Hotel Selwo Lodge

And if you do not decide on any of the above, surely this last one will not leave you indifferent since it is one of the best options for children to enjoy in a big way.

Who hasn’t dreamed of going on a safari in Africa? Maybe a real one is a little out of our budget, but if we want to live a similar experience, we can go beyond the simple visit to Selwo Aventura and book a night to stay in one of the African huts of the Masai village, the Watu Village or the Zulu apartments.

The difference between the three is the capacity of each: the Masai huts can accommodate up to three people and are equipped with a bathroom with shower, while those in the Watu village, each hut can accommodate up to four people and have a private bathroom with hydro-massage bathtub.

Finally, the Zulu apartments have a capacity for six people, living room with sofa bed, TV, mini-fridge, kitchen, bathroom with shower and a large private terrace with jacuzzi.

All African cabins have hot/cold air conditioning, television and mini-fridge. In addition, both villages have a shared hut with a microwave in which you can heat your own food.

As if all this were not enough, here you have more services included when you book your accommodation:

  • Serengeti Safari gift for guests.
  • Gift of an adventure activity for each guest over 3 years old.
  • Access to the shared pool for Hotel Selwo Lodge guests.
