Tenerife is one of those lovely destinations that has weather that outshines the UK all year round, yet still has relatively short flight times, making it a fab place to get away with kids of any age. The beautiful sandy beaches and lush warm sea is enough to win over even the most stubborn teenagers, and with water sports, aqua parks and other fun activities you’ll never hear the dreaded “I’m bored” complaint. For this holiday we’re heading to a lovely hotel with pools and a water slide (always popular with the kids), but right next to a sandy beach and close to Playa L’Arena.
Puerto de Santiago is on the sunny west coast of Tenerife but well away from the ‘Brit pack’ resorts. Formerly a fishing village, it boasts sandy beaches, activities and cuisine but with true Canarian style.
The area is an uncrowded, low key jewel in Tenerife’s crown and yet close to some of the islands’ best sights and coastline and a great selection of bars and restaurants. The blue flag beach is sandy , and if you fancy a wander, the promenade is lined with palm trees and a choice of restaurants. A fabulous 4 star all inclusive hotel will be our home for the week, where you can indulge in some guilt free relaxation time with the kids while both of you have fun making new friends around the pool on this group holiday for single parents.
Our holiday is 7 nights, commencing on Sun 5th April until Sun 12th April 2020
Should you wish to extend this break at all, please do email us at email@example.com for us to check the availability 🙂

The Tenerife Beach Holiday is perfect for single parent families with any age children, Tenerife is a wonderfully sunny island, yet because we are visiting in the Easter hols, the heat won’t be unbearable, making it a great climate for little ones and still perfect for you to relax and sunbathe.

Our hotel is situated in Puerto de Santiago, a short walk from Playa La Arena and a great location for a half term holiday. Uncrowded and away from the bustle of Tenerife’s Brit Pack resorts; well placed for some of the island’s prettiest sights; sunny, sandy and with a good selection of restaurants. You’re close to the dramatic cliffs of Los Gigantes, as well as the stunning volcanic scenery of the Teide National Park.
The climate is family friendly too – warm enough to bask and play in the sun, but less searing than the usual Mediterranean summer sun.
This lovely hotel is rated 4 star+ and has a host of features to make your holiday a relaxing one. With its classic styling, our sea side hotel makes a good impression as soon as you arrive, the high ceiling lobby with a huge sweeping staircase set the scene. Of course the kids are more interested in the two pools and water slide, always a popular feature. The hotel is just a path down to the lovely blue flag beach, and 100m from the main resort area.
The facilities of the hotel are as follows:
– 3 Outdoor pools including children’s pool
– Water Slide
– Playground with adventure play area
– A wide variety of international and local dishes
– Snack bar and pool side restaurant
– Gym, aerobics studio, tennis, mini golf, aqua aerobics

This is an all inclusive holiday – your flights, transfers to resort and all meals and drinks are included in the cost. The all-inclusive package includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks as well as local drinks. Snacks are available from 10am to 6pm, with soft and alcoholic drinks and cocktails served from 10am to midnight.
The holiday will be accompanied by a Single With Kids coordinator who will arrange group events and excursions (please note, all events are totally optional and those with admission fees are not included in the price.)
We’re in an ideal location to visit Tenerife’s volcanic National Park with a cable car ride to the top of the (inactive!) volcano. Loro Park zoo with its animal shows is a fabulous day out, for those wanting water fun, Siam Park is also a good day out. Take a 4×4 camel safari through Tenerife’s back and beyond, protected under national park status, where you will end your trip with a ride on a camel!
As always the holiday will be accompanied by a Single With Kids’ coordinator who will arrange fun itinerary with something for all (do feel free to dip in and out of this as you see fit).

We're very excited about this fantastic new destination, we're sure you'll love it. If you haven't been on a Single With Kids' holiday before, do check out what other single parents think about our holidays both below and on our Reviews page:
" Our first SWK holiday was fab – thank you Kate for all your efforts. "
" We had a brilliant time. So much fun that we smiled all week long. "
" Our first SWK holiday and thoroughly enjoyed. My son (4) was the youngest of the group but all parents and children were especially kind and welcoming. Thanks to Kate and Laina for the warm, friendly welcome. Thank you. "
" Our first SWK holiday and thoroughly glad we took the plunge. Fab group of people and huge thanks to Kate for all her efforts. "
" Me and my daughter have really enjoyed our second SWK holiday in Tenerife. We have met some great people and it is so much better than just the two of us as the adults get to have chats with other adults and the children enjoy playing with other children rather than sitting bored and just on their phones and tablets all day. The hotel is fabulous and Kate the coordinator is lovely, friendly and engages with everyone. I can completely recommend SWK holidays and will be looking to book my next holiday when I am back home. "
" My first SWK holiday and I’m glad I decided to do it. It has been a great experience for my son (who is an only child) to have other people his own age to interact with rather than his ageing mother. It has also been good for me to have other adults to chat to especially in the evenings and to enjoy excursions with. Everyone in the group has been friendly and supportive and I would certainly recommend a SWK holiday to other single parents "
" I like going in the pool and the arcade but my favourite part was Siam Park. "
" Absolutely fantastic, enjoyed every minute. Well organised. Organiser at UK brilliant. Resort/holiday, coordinator Claire and the one and only Zac were fantastic. Beautiful hotel. Well chosen excursions. Will definitely do it again. Third holiday. "
" Lovely holiday. Great group, especially Claire and Zak. Don’t really want to go home. Thanks to all. "
" Thank you so much for a well organised, stress free and amazingly enjoyable holiday. It was a joy to meet such nice people and to make some new friends. Most importantly all the children bonded so well. A brilliant holiday. "
" This is my first trip with SWK. I’m glad I took the plunge. All the stressy stuff is dealt with (transfers and tickets to events) leaving us to relax, make new friends and enjoy the holiday with great company. "
" Had a wonderful holiday. Claire our coordinator was fantastic. She made sure everyone was happy and it ran smoothly. Claire’s son Zac was amazing with my one year old. I will definitely book again with SWK. "
" Great holiday and group worked well because of all Claire’s efforts so much so that I booked a second holiday while on this one. "
" Such a great relaxing break. Claire took all the stress out of everything, letting everybody else enjoy the fun and company. Sure we will be back again soon. Thank you. "
" Better than our expectations. Great fun, company, food, views, accommodation and day trips. Need more than a week. Best feeling when your child tells you what a fun holiday they are having. "
" We loved our holiday. The hotel was really fancy and had great pool side entertainment. It was so great to be with other families. We will definitely come back. "

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, looking forward to our next SWK trip
" We’ve had a Fabulous holiday and made “Friends for Life” "
" Thank you for a lovely week, with a great group. "
" The place was very impressive. Animation staff were fantastic with the kids which gave me time to relax in the sun with new friends and a good book!
Elaine was lovely, as were the rest of the group. The kids all got on so well with one another. The transfers were smooth and not too long. So nice to see the sun again. This is my 4th trip with SWK and they have all been excellent. I love the fact that everyone just clicks with one another, its like being away with family, if not better!! Just got to decide where to go next. Thank you xx "
" We've had a great time on our 1st SWK holiday, made great friends and will be booking again in the future. "
" It's been great, first timer and would def do it again. Thanks Elaine & the crew. "
" We had a great holiday with lots of fun and sun. Thank you very much for your help and the brilliant coordination. "
" Thank you Elaine for all your hard work. We've had a great time her in Tenerife. Dolphins, black sand and the mini-disco were the little ones favourites. "
" Brilliant holiday - we've had a fabulous time. Elaine, you've been great. We'll definitely be booking another sunny holiday with SWK. "
" What i wanted was a holiday that met the needs of both my 8 year old, 12 year old (nearly thirteen), and my own!!! This is exactly what the holiday gave; friends for us all. We loved it. Great hotel, something for everyone, lots of activities on site. It was also a quiet and peaceful place. "
" Loved the snow. The people were friendly and helpful. It was our first time skiing and we both really enjoyed it. The scenery was fantastic. I found that the holiday was organised well by SWK. Chrissie kept us all informed. Thanks for a great holiday. "
" It was a lovely holiday and great that all the parents and children got on so well. My daughter was sad that we only stayed 7 days! The highlight? The lovely people that we shared the holiday with and the fun we all had together. "
" We really enjoyed being with a big group of people and always having someone around to talk to and for Max to play with. Elaine was amazing and went above and beyond to help and keep everyone informed -Max was ill and we nearly missed water park but she encouraged us to go knowing Max would regret it if he didn't go and she was right! ! I was also ill one night and she picked Max up for dinner and he arrived home happy and worn out 3 hours later -I dont think Elaine could have been any better plus she was a lovely interesting person with a big heart!! The people the hotel and feeling part of a big happy family safe and secure! ! Much too lonely when just the 2 of us! "
" It was great to have people in the same 'boat' who understands your life. The children get to relax and have fun with other single parent children. Also I was very relaxed in leaving my child with one of the other parents while I went for a 'grown up coffee' with one of the other parents. "
" My son could not wished for more from this holiday - he loved it and didn't want to leave. This holiday was fantastic - a great child friendly hotel with so much to do. The food was good quality and varied and all the families were lovely. Our coordinator pulled out all the stops and made a great holiday even more special. I'd highly recommend it and would definitely go back. It had so much for the children to do and there was always someone for my son to play with (usually in the pool!). it never seemed to get too crowded. It was so great for the parents too to have some adult company. "
" 3rd SWK trip abroad, best yet! A lovely bunch of parents and great kids. Met some wonderful people and already future holidays and meet-ups are planned. All the kids got on so well together and friendships have been made for the long term. Snorkelling was superb and amazing, whilst the boat trip was the best day. And finally, Chrissie was right - Elaine is a brilliant coordinator (you can give me the £10 later!) "
" This was our first family holiday since my husband died six months ago, so I wasn't expecting it to be easy or amazing purely due to our personal circumstances. But it was absolutely the right sort of holiday to do at this stage and was as good as it could possibly be. It's great to meet other parents in a similar situation - there were four other widows on the trip and that was so helpful for me. "
" Wow! First time with SWK and the holiday exceeded expectations. Elaine got the perfect balance, I always knew where the group was and was always free to choose. I surprised myself how much I joined the group and enjoyed the range of company. Thank you SWK – great organisation and a great time. Thank you Elaine – you make good things happen! "
" Best holiday ever been on!. "
