Barcelo Hydra Beach Resort - Greece
The Barcelo Hydra Beach Resort isn't close to anything -- other than the ocean, that is. And that's the true charm of this resort. Add all inclusive rates that cover meals and alcohol, plus water excursions, swimming pools, a fitness center and spa, and you've got the makings for a simple, relaxing getaway with kids.
Bahia Principe Costa Adeje - Spain
Situated atop a cliff in Spain, Bahia Principe Costa Adeje promises breathtaking views from any angle -- and that's just one of the reasons we adore this resort. We also love how much it caters to families, with kids' options at the onsite restaurants; a lagoon-style pool that wraps around the property; mini-golf; and even a kids' club called Bahia Scouts. Junior Suites for four guests are available for families. The hotel is next to a rocky beach, but there's a sandy beach just 10 minutes away. Offsite excursions can be arranged.

It also has six restaurants, including one that has a children's buffet!

Families aren't forgotten in the accommodations, either, which include Family Rooms for four guests and larger Family Suites for six.
