Tenerife: hotels with menu for children

Hotels for children in Tenerife are one of the best choices that you can do for enjoying a real holiday if you travel with family.  The hotel offer  of this emblematic Canary Island is one of the most complete ones and the offer of accommodations specialized in children is really varied: from the classic All Inclusive hotels in Costa Adeje to the exclusive Flintstones Hotels belonging to the Sol Hotels company.

Most of those who look for a hotel for children, think of playful activities offered by the accommodation and their compatibility with a space designed for adults to relax and rest: spa hotels, beauty centre or wellness area, hotels with Jacuzzi in Tenerife, hotels with miniclub, babysitting service and chill out area  for 16 years old and over…. However, one of the most important details that, really often, are ignored when deciding the accommodation to stay is the restaurant service offered by the hotel or the apartment.

Does it offer children’s menu? Children eating table? Healthy snacks? All those who travel with children have probably had the problem of eating in a restaurant in an All inclusive hotel without the possibility of giving to the children a meal that they find funny , allowing to have a pleasant time instead of a torture.

The healthy and funny food is one of the most interesting options offered by some hotels for children as an element for attracting new clients.  And the demand is growing: there are more and more travellers choosing their hotel for family holidays in Tenerife in accordance with the good offer of children’s menu.

Although most of the family hotels in Tenerife offering a children’s menu include it in their All inclusive offer, some accommodations offer it as something special for an additional charge.  In these cases, the buffet or menu is usually more complete, varied and with a best quality, since they are usually accompanied by a specialized instructor which are responsible for children to eat and to learn to see the food as something good and funny.

For getting the choice right, the most recommended is checking the hotel’s official website, since there is where we find details about the gastronomic offer of the accommodation. Occasionally, we find in some websites the menus and philosophy of the service.  It is also important to look into the possibility of finding dishes for coeliacs and for children with food intolerances, as well as a guarantee of nutritional  quality.

Directly consulting with the hotel is an alternative, you can also play safe and select a hotel belonging to a big chain or a 3 star or above hotel, since they all are usually  careful in this sense: NH, Barceló, Melià, Iberostar…  In general, in all the accommodations of these companies which consider themselves as family hotels, we can find services with appropriate children’s menu.

The hotels in Tenerife offering best service of children’s menu are Sol Parque San Antonio and Princesa Dácil, the Olé resorts and the Iberostar Anthelia spa hotel in Tenerife, a 5 star hotel with 4 bars with snack and 4 top level restaurants with delicious specialities.
