Our Summer Holiday Trip to Spain

The school holidays are a brilliant time to get the family together however sometimes those 6 weeks feel like a life sentence as it’s so hard to stop the kids from getting bored. It’s especially tough for Logan as he thrives better on routine and not having anything set out from day to day can be difficult for him to process. To break up the 6 weeks a little bit for us I booked up a summer holiday to Benalmadena in Spain. It was a short flight from Edinburgh airport (2.5hrs, 3hrs at most) and a short bus ride to our accommodation. I played it safe and went for a week as after a little while Logan starts to miss home. And lets be honest a holiday with kids is never really a holiday as everyone’s running around so by the end you’re knackered and need a holiday from the holiday!

Edinburgh Airport’s additional needs team were amazing as always. I think that’s about the 5th time we’ve used their services and they honestly can’t be any more accommodating so if you’re travelling from Edinburgh Airport with anyone who has Autism (or any other needs) please do get in touch with them as it’ll make your airport experience a hell of a lot less stressful.

Anyway I booked us up to stay at the Los Patos Park hotel which is brilliant for kids with lots of water slides, a water play area, play park, kids club and plenty of entertainment on every night to keep the family happy. I normally book a villa as it’s like a home from home for Logan but thought I’d try something different this time. It was good, just so so busy and we all sort of got fed up on the same food after a week in the hotel so I definitely think our next holiday will be back to a villa for us. At least we tired it though and Benalmadena has a lot to offer families with young kids from the Bioparc Zoo, Sea Life Centre, Dolphin Park, Crocodile Park, Butterfly Farm, Cable Cars up the mountain and the Tivoli World theme park. We tried a good few of these parks and all were fab although Tivoli World doesn’t offer any service to people with disabilities so just be aware of this in case it applies to your family. Luckily for us when we went it wasn’t really busy and Logan got on most rides first time with no issues, thank goodness for that I tell you!

All in all we had a lovely week away, there were a few stress filled moments but that’s to be expected with going to a new place for Logan. I’ve got more trips planned for the rest of the year which we’re all looking forward to but here’s some photos of our time in Benalmadena for you to look at.
