    A hotel boasting a great pool area has to be a priority with kids. Any one of the pools would keep the kids happy for hours whilst we just relax on a sun lounger.

  2. Lorraine Berry says:

    Let’s pray that by early summer enough people have been vaccinated for our children to be able to enjoy the fun of holidays. Too many kids have lost too much of their childhood.

    This is a great list of hotels on the Canary Islands. It is one of my best winter destinations. Perfect for the October half-term school holidays.
