The best plan for this summer in Costa Adeje

When it comes holiday with children in Tenerife, there is a destination where comfort, service and quality accommodation converge in order to offer the best summer plans: it is Costa Adeje, in the most southern part of the island, where we find some of  the most amazing beaches as well as the most visited tourist attractions, such as Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Américas.

Family hotels in Costa Adeje stand out for their versatility and their growing specialization. The most established hotel companies and, specially, those that have just begun in this area, have started an interesting process of renovation of their holiday offer, giving a fresh impetus to this beach and sun destination in Tenerife.

Personalized holidays in which the hotel plays a decisive role in the plan, but as an additional attraction of the destination.  This concept have been applied by the new Olé hotel chain, which has opted for taking care of details of its spaces, facilities, services and staff in order to make of the hotel one of the trip motivations of its guests.

The investment  goes beyond building spaces and has focused on reconsidering the hotel’s concept, turning it into a family accommodation in Tenerife where everyone wants to go.  Prices are very affordable and this allows to quickly book, this is why it is more recommended to take advantage of the early booking in winter months to end the year holidays.

The programme of activities specialized in children, the gastronomic offer (beyond the classic buffet restaurant) and the new cocktail bars ideal for relaxing among adults while kids enjoy playing are some of the services more appreciated by its guests in the different reviews we find on websites like Tripadvisor.

Another of the main attractions of these new hotels in Costa Adeje are their package offers for family holidays, representing a considerable saving in relation to other type of accommodations: All inclusive, Free Kids,  Best Online Price Guaranteed… And the complete rooms standing out for its modern design, in contrast with many hotels belonging to an older generation.

This new type of rooms and suites in Costa Adeje are very bright spaces, with a lot of versatility, designed to accommodate parents and children in a comfortable way without giving up the privacy. Services are another point in favour: modern, well equipped and conceived of to ensure comfort and entertaining.

The charm of Playa del Matorral

Playa del Matorral is one of the most famous beaches in Fuerteventura.  Situated in the most southern part of the island, which was before a land separated from the rest of the island by a small sand strip, it offers a long area with fine sand and a semi-wild environment that gives it the appearance of an almost pristine beach in Fuerteventura.

In the last years, Playa del Matorral has been recovering its real natural charm, it has started the process of ecological restoration of the entire area that goes from the hotels in Jandia Beach to the lighthouse, almost to Morro Jable, which is the most southern town bordering on the sandy area.

After walking its 4 km of length, you arrive to the swimming area known as Playa Gaviotas, less wild and more ideal for families. There you can find all type of services and first-class hotels such as Iberostar Fuerteventura Palace, a perfect  accommodation for travelling with children, where adults have their own space and thousand of possibilities for enjoying their time even in a trip with family.

Very close to these hotels in Playa Gaviotas, we find El Saladar de Jandía, a place that represents one the main reasons by which El Matorral is considered an ecological reserve.  It is a very comfortable fine sand beach for walking next to the sea and, even though it is very visited in summer, its spaciousness allows to placidly do a long walk by the seashore.

Playa del Matorral preserves an area where nudism can be practised.  Now we see few nudists and the family sector has gained ground, but anyone can enjoy one of the few nudist beaches that remain in the south of Fuerteventura.  The family area is separated from the nudist area by the Jandia lighthouse.

Playa del Matorral offers all types of services, from car park to hammocks and sunshades, without losing, of course, the charm of natural beach that makes it, among other beaches in the island, one of must visits, at least once in your lifetime.
