    Advice needed to find a holiday please !! 6th Feb 18 at 9:07 PM
    Hi all you lovely people in MSE land !!
    I'm basically quite new to all this abroad malarky, so i'm struggling a bit!
    Could anyone please recommend a family friendly holiday for 2 adults & 2 children ( 9 & 11 )

    I've been looking for:
    Short(ish) haul
    All Inclusive -( quite important)
    Decent pools ( a must as both boys are complete waterbabies !)
    This is for April 2019 10-12 nights

    Last year we did Club Mac - Alcudia &
    Holiday Palace - Benalmadena
    While we enjoyed both of these, OH wants to try somewhere new
    ( as we've only ever been abroad twice )
    I thought we'd found the perfect place in Turkey ( Eftalia Aqua resort ) but then i read the reviews & have been scared off' so now i'm a bit stuck !!
    Sorry for the ramble & thank you all in advance !!

    It would be helpful if you could possibly tell me where you have moved it to.

    Tenerife might be too far for you ?

    We have stayed in the Cleopatra Palace (best for couples) which is one of the 3 hotels within the Mare Nostrum complex.

    The Mediterranean Palace looked really good for kids and teens - tried to book it last summer to take grandkids, very popular and fully booked well in advance - that speaks for itself.

    I will agree with Tenerife, just over 4 hours flight, some nice all inclusive hotels that are not too dear and the boys would love Siam Park. Los Cristianos , Playa De Las Americas or Adeje would be my choice.
    4371/3 =1457.. some people won't accept that though.
    Corduroy pillows are making headlines!
