Family Friendly Resort: Abama Golf and Spa Resort
Tenerife, Canary Islands
The family friendly Abama Resort is on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The Canary Islands are part of Spain, located approximately two hundred miles off the coast of Morocco, in the Atlantic Ocean. They have almost ideal weather year round here with the temperatures varying only six-to-ten degrees.
Over half of Abama Golf and Spa Resort guests are families with kids. Because of this, they have a very active kids club. In their busy seasons, (Easter, Christmas, and August) the club can have 50 to 60 kids doing activities each day. Some of the more popular kids activities include: cooking workshops, face-painting, pirate treasure hunt, clay sculpture, movie nights, and beach outings.
This is a very large and luxurious resort, with 476 suites and private casitas. Kids will love the sprawling courtyards housing large tropical ponds complete with rainbow colored koi.
The spa has all of the normal spa treatments, but it has a unique hydro-center that plunges you into a sea of water sensations.
Abama Resort, which sits on a bluff above the Atlantic Ocean, has multiple restaurants and seven swimming pools, some with zero-depth entry. There is a funicular (cable car or tram) that takes you down to the resort’s beach where there are several “ocean pools” built into the seaside. The waves naturally bring fresh water into these pools nestled among the rocks.
Their daily breakfast is like the most opulent Sunday brunch you have ever seen…. Enough said!!! However, save your appetite for one of the gourmet eateries such as El Mirador where you can marvel at the technique of salt-fish cookery.
