The spectacular ocean views, spa area and luxury restaurants are supplemented by dedicated children's areas making it an ideal family choice.
In Cardona in Catalonia, a 9th century fortress overlooking a headland has been converted into a magnificent luxury hotel. While kids will marvel at the edifice and the views over the sea, parents will appreciate a stylish restaurant serving up innovative Catalan cuisine.
