Holidays with Teenagers

Choosing a holiday or hotel that gets teen approval can be tricky - that's why we've highlighted a selection of hotels that really hit the mark when it comes to catering for them. Lots of our family-friendly hotels offer kids' clubs, but to make it into our teen-friendly selection, we're looking for things like separate lounges, games rooms and top-notch sports facilities.

The adult-free zones at these hotels might offer bars where teens can socialise over a few drinks (non-alcoholic, of course), flatscreens hooked up to the latest games consoles, or after-dark activities like bonfires and barbecues on the beach. Sports-wise, there's usually plenty to pick from. At Martinhal Sagres in Portugal, for example, teens can learn to surf or take mountain bikes up into the hills. Heritage Le Telfair in Mauritius lines up golf lessons, and at Sardinia's Hotel Bouganville teens can sign up for the Chelsea Football Academy.

Below you'll find the full list of our hotels that are perfect for holidays with teenagers.

  • Handpicked hotels feature teen hangouts, activities and sports clubs
  • Your Trusted Adviser can let you know which hotels and rooms will suit your family
  • Ask us about arranging family trips or days out in the local area

Teen travel tips

Family-sized rooms

Having enough space for everyone is key when you’re holidaying with teens. Interconnecting rooms offer that extra bit of privacy, plus the bonus of having two bathrooms (ideal for avoiding shower queues in the morning or when you get back from the beach).

We can also recommend family suites, most of which have separate bedrooms and living areas, plus hotel villas where you could have a private pool, spacious lounge area and a kitchen facilities. Your Trusted Adviser will be able to talk you through all the options and help you find the right accommodation for your family. 

Things to do on holidays with teens

Our teen-friendly holidays cater for the whole family. Your Trusted Adviser can recommend day trips and activities that you can enjoy together, from boat trips and movie nights, to private yoga sessions, golf lessons and spa treatments.

Depending on the destination you choose, they can help you plan things to do in your resort, too, whether that’s a visit to Mexico’s eco-parks, a Game of Thrones locations tour of Dubrovnik or a trip to a theme park in Dubai.
