Kids facilities and kids clubs:

Our hotel has a mini club (4-7 years) and maxi club (8-12 years), as well as a teenage club (13-17 years). The mini club has its own room with lots of games and toys and a small soft play centre whilst the maxi and teenage clubs meet at the pool or beach to enjoy table tennis, archery, darts, beach volleyball, air rifle shooting, water sports and more. The hotel also has a play area next to the kids pools and pool bar. The older kids can enjoy table tennis outside and a large indoor games room with a bowling alley, air hockey, table football and pool tables and plenty of sofas to hang out.

The beach and water sports:

There are water sports schools close to the hotel, directly on Jandía beach where you can try windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, paddle surfing and more. If you want to try out diving, all you need to do is head to the Iberostar Fuerteventura Palace hotel next door and book yourself or the kids some diving classes. Swimming lessons can be booked at the Iberostar Gaviotas Park right behind your hotel.


Even though holidays to Jandía in Fuerteventura are mainly focused on beach activities and water sports, there is still a lot to keep you entertained. Jandía offers an array of tax-free shops and the town centre has quite a few lively bars to keep you busy when the sun goes down. And for daytime excursions, you could visit the Jandía National Park or one of the many Aloe Vera Farms. We also recommend a trip on a pirate ship, catamaran or speed boat to see dolphins and sea turtles, a jeep tour on the sandy dunes of Jandía or a quad bike (only with driving licence) or Segway tour of the surrounding area.

This holiday is offered on an all-inclusive basis with breakfast, lunch and dinner served at the hotel’s buffet restaurant. The hotel also has a tapas bar which is open for dinner on most evenings as well as a pool bar which serves snacks and drinks throughout the day, as well as lunch. After dinner,  our single parents can chill out at the cocktail bar overlooking the sea or enjoy the evening entertainment programme including shows, live music and a kiddie disco in the theatre.

The island – Fuerteventura

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands, which are part of Spain, and is only 60 miles from the coast of Morocco. It is a volcanic island and famous for its enormous sand dunes, endless sandy beaches and perfect conditions for a wide variety of water sports, such as surfing, wind surfing and catamaran sailing. Apart from some of the most impressive beaches in Europe, Fuerteventura enjoys a sunny dry climate all year round. The weather in April is mild and sunny, perfect for sightseeing and relaxing on the beach.

The resort – Jandía

Jandía is the name given to a resort at the southern tip of Fuerteventura, near the small picturesque fishing village of Morro Jable, which features the best beach on Fuerteventura. At one time the peninsula was an island off Fuerteventura but huge sand deposits eventually linked the two landmasses resulting in one of the longest, and some would say the best beaches in the world. The fine sandy beach and turquoise waters stretch for 20 miles in both directions against a stunning backdrop of vast mountains and blue skies. With crystal clear seas and benefiting from refreshing Atlantic breezes, this is a splendid place for sun-seekers and water sports enthusiasts and known as the Canaries’ beach and water sports paradise. The centre of Jandía with its bars and shops is just up the road and great for an evening stroll.

- Sarah & Hari (9) - Fuerteventura April 2022
"We had s great time in Fuerteventura! The group was lovely; relaxed and fun. The hotel staff were very friendly and engaged very well with the adults and children. There was lots on offer and we loved the beach and pool. It was also a real treat to be all inclusive! "
- Rebecca and son - Fuerteventura, April 2022
"This was my first trip with SPOH and I wasn't sure what to expect. It was a great opportunity to meet some lovely parents and their fantastic kids. The hotel was in a good location and I managed to have the relaxing break I needed. I will go on a SPOH again."
- Suzette, Maya (15) and Lillian (14) - Fuerteventura, April 2022
"Our first holiday with the SPOH group - just brilliant - the friendliness, support and togetherness and general banter and fun was priceless. "
- Taoheed & Safiya (10) - Fuerteventura in May 2017
"Thank you for such an enjoyable holiday. We felt the whole experience was a positive one. The holiday would not have been as pleasant and relaxing without your input."
- Patricia, Jordan (18) & Reuben (11) (Fuerteventura, August 2014)
"This was my first time on a single parent holiday, so it was with some trepidation that I approached the holiday. I needn’t have worried. Within 2 hours of arriving my daughter had bonded with the other children. She had a wonderful time, which meant I could then relax and enjoy myself. It was a great group of people and we all got on well. Sometimes we would do things together, at other times people would do their own thing. The rep was superb and did a great job ensuring everyone was having a good time. We also hired bicycles and had a parents v kids football match (a very diplomatic draw ). I would definitely recommend the holiday."
- Phil & Celine (12) (Fuerteventura, August 2013)
"Our holiday on Fuerteventura was really great because of how un commercialised it is as an island and because of the fabulous beaches. It was a little hideaway that we came to love. The group was such fun and our guide became a part of our fun."
- Laura & Daniel (10) (Fuerteventura, August 2013)
"The hotel was in an excellent location, and provided consistently good food and quality facilities. The range of inclusive snacks and drinks was excellent; and Sandra’s organisation and attentiveness was, as always, first rate."
- Paul, Alice (13) & Daisy (11) (Fuerteventura, August 2012)
"Once again we have all enjoyed a superb holiday with SPOH (our 4th) – Sandra is the perfect host and makes everyone feel welcome and included – takes the strain (organisation wise) off the single parents and is great company. Fantastic hotel and location with a range of activities to suit all – highly recommended."
- Jenny, Adam (16) & Sam (14) (Fuerteventura, August 2012)
"Brilliantly organised holiday – great hotel, lovely location and great people. All inclusive was an added bonus. Was lovely to be able to enjoy adult company whenever you wanted especially evenings and the kids all enjoyed having the built in friends to play with. All in all a really relaxing holiday. Would definitely recommend."
- Catherine, Joe (15), Harry (12) & Tilly (6) (Fuerteventura, August 2012)
