This all-inclusive family hotel on the beachfront in the Halkidiki region is a hugely popular option for a luxury family holiday in Greece, not least for its summer football academy catering to soccer-mad kids from as young as 18 months. There's also diving (including free introductory pool dives), mountain-biking, tennis and even Greek dance lessons, plus a crèche, kids' clubs and three children's pools. If all that sounds too much like hard work, relax on the loungers by the pools (some heated, and one a lagoon pool with a swim-up bar) or on the beach, both with waiter service.

The sleek accommodation includes bungalows with two bedrooms sleeping up to six, making this a good option for large families or for holidays with grandparents. Interiors are chic and the restaurants and bars top class (with most menus devised by Michelin-starred chefs), but the Dine Out experience also means you can try out local restaurants as part of your all-inclusive holiday package.

2019 price guide:
