So you’re looking to go on a decently priced holiday with the kids. You need an apartment or hotel with 2 bedrooms, and you want to go all inclusive. Sounds easy, right? Well, actually – no. It turns out this is one of the trickier holiday types to book, leading you down a fair few blind alleys and dead ends.
Sure, it’s easy to find family apartments, and searching for all inclusive holidays is simple, but a 2 bedroom apartment holiday that’s also all inclusive? That’s a bit more difficult.
But worry not! We’ve come up with a list of holidays that fit the bill in the Balearic islands, Greece and the Canaries. Budget-friendly, with 2 separate bedrooms, swimming pools, and by the beach, our list below has you covered for all inclusive apartment holidays – just don’t let anyone know!
