Fab hotels for families in Santa Eularia
1. Invisa Hotel Cala Blanca & Cala Verde
This three-star complex in Platja Es Figueral is around 10km from Santa Eulalia. The hotels sit on a sprawling site along the coast, giving magnificent sea views and easy access to the beach, with ramps installed for buggies. Probably best-suited to a family wanting an allinclusive holiday, the hotels offer poolside entertainment for children, as well as tennis courts, football and hockey grounds. The piece de resistance has to be Pirate Island, complete with slides and a huge bucket that every so often dramatically dumps water into the pool. Three kids’ clubs cater separately for age groups between three and 17. Suites can sleep up to six people, with the toppriced ones offering a private balcony.
How much? A premium superior room for two adults and two children on a B&B basis costs from E162 (around £140) per night. Visit invisahoteles.com/en
2. ME Ibiza
Past ravers now settled into parental life are likely to enjoy this funky, modern hotel. The pink-lit reception, artistic wall installation and afternoon DJ by the pool give ME Ibiza a fun but chilled vibe. An open-plan lobby allows guests a view of the pool area from the moment they arrive. Rooms vary in size, but all are ultra- cool. White, synonymous with Ibiza, is a common colour - from staff clothing to room features. While children can enjoy the kids’ club and a child-friendly pool, adults can lounge on the Bali beds by the main pool. Breakfast features everything from cereals and breads to doughnuts and champagne.

This exclusive Balineseinspired spa hotel, surrounded by orange trees, is the epitome of utter relaxation. Out in the peaceful calm of the countryside, guests can switch off as they sprawl on four-poster daybeds by a long, narrow pool under a clear blue sky. Past guests include Hips Don’t Lie singer Shakira, although staff, presumably wanting to maintain privacy, remain tight-lipped on other celebrity clientele. Remarkably, the hotel does welcome children. The spa is adults-only but a separate family-friendly pool ensures parents and children can relax together. A nanny service also allows for some grown-up-only downtime.
