I quite fancy the Costa del sol at the moment, I've been a few times pre H and kids and had a great time. I always think the belearics are better for families? What are your thoughts ladies?

I've not been to the Costa Del Sol, but to other parts of mainland Spain, and before child. But I reckon that either will work equally well, provided you choose the right area/resort.
That's not much help is it?
Depends what time of year you plan to go too. As I think the islands benefit from the cooler breezes in the height of summer (still hot though) than the mainland.

Depends where abouts your going. We holiday near Torrejievca, so what's that Costa Blanca / Brava?

We went to Mijas with M and it was fabulous. Very family friendly. It's up the mountains from Fuengirola.
That's costa blank belle I think, we been there when my nan lived there. This one is benalmadena, not far from Marbella.
I didn't think about the heat difference thou cedar, that's a good point. Littlest boy will only be just 12 months

Isn't Benelmadena on that Costa Crime programme?
11/01/2013 at 13:32
Yes probably belle it's a bit gangster type I think? *ok a bit worrying* I've not seen the programme but I have heard some stories of puerto banus of recent years..

But Benelmadena is SOOOO lovely.

Hmm, to be fair even Majorca has parts that are like the costa del sol too..

I've been to mainland spain and i've been to the islands, depending on the resort you pick you'll be fine. We're going to Salou in May, so mainland spain. The Costa Dorada i think? Hoping it'll be nice and warm, but not too hot with the babies being in tow.
