Boutique Cyprus

Our verdict:

Cyprus is the perfect Mediterranean island for families who love a combination of history, chilling poolside and getting active on the beach or in the mountainous interior. Spend a week here and you can visit ancient temples and castles, learn to windsurf in one of the resorts or just take a relaxing break from family life back at home.

i-escape says

Cyprus, the third biggest island in the Med, boasts almost year-round sunshine and crystal-clear waters. Family-friendly activities from water parks to camel riding sit aside stunning natural wonders and sleepy stone villages.

We’ve hand-picked and honestly reviewed the best hotels and rentals on the island to suit every family. Plus, we guarantee you will pay the same as if you book the hotel directly or through any other publicly available rate.

For an easy, one-stop family holiday, this superb all-suite beach resort on the shores of Pissouri Bay is hard to beat – think huge pools, watersports, a stellar spa and a free kids club.

This unpretentious seaside design hotel also ticks all the boxes, with family-focused staff on hand to give parents a well-earned break.

If you’re looking for more of an off-the-beaten-track escape, take a look at our favourite budget option on the island. Rustic self-catering suites surround a gorgeous pool terrace, set in the sleepy hamlet of Psematismenos, and are perfect for adventurous families.

Or swap the coast for the mountains: this boutique guesthouse in the Troodos foothills has a pool and plenty of activities nearby. Higher in the hills you’ll find a boutique spa hotel that’s a slice of authentic Cyprus – perfect for families with older children.
