Families are the centre of attention at Majorca’s newest all inclusive resort

Last updated 31st July 2023

Iberostar Selection Albufera Resort is an inspired new concept in all inclusive resorts that’s a top choice for families because it has been carefully curated with them in mind. Plus kids stay free* at Iberostar Selection Albufera Playa on holidays from now, right up until 31 October 2023. Take a look.


Newly renovated children’s pool with Aquafun slides and activities

Just opened for summer 2023, the resort features two recently renovated Iberostar hotels: Iberostar Selection Albufera Park and Iberostar Selection Albufera Playa. Each exceptional in its own right, with their own individual character, and both surrounded by the tranquil loveliness of Albufera Natural Park.

However, families staying at either Iberostar Selection Albufera Park or Iberostar Selection Albufera Playa have full access to the facilities of both hotels, including all restaurants and pools.

Then, as well as a midst of nature setting, a few steps from either hotel also brings you to stunning Playa de Muro.  Not only is this easily the most beautiful beach in Majorca – an island where the competition for that title is stiff – in 2022, TripAdvisor users voted it Best Beach in Spain and third Best Beach in Europe.

However, Iberostar aren’t known for allowing the carefully chosen beachfront locations of their all inclusive resorts to do all the work. So you can also look forward to the resort itself more than matching its extraordinary surroundings.

To begin with, between Iberostar Selection Albufera Park and Iberostar Selection Albufera Playa, families have the choice of no fewer than 10 restaurants. Across both hotels, there are also seven swimming pools, including a brand new rooftop pool, a heated indoor pool and a newly renovated and enlarged children’s pool with Aquafun games and activities.

Although, real water babies – and their parents – might be especially interested in the new range of swim-up rooms with direct pool access.

Beautifully renovated and deeply committed to sustainability

Iberostar put responsible travel at the heart of everything they do, so it probably won’t come as too much of a surprise to learn that all newly renovated rooms at Iberostar Selection Albufera Resort focus on sustainability.

Interiors are clearly inspired by the natural beauty all around the resort, and the results are soothing, harmonious designs which reflect the sea, sky and remarkable Balearic landscape. Of course, all materials from wood to wallpaper come from sustainable sources, but they’re also sustainably produced. And it’s that kind of attention to detail which really sets Iberostar’s responsible approach apart.

Swim, splash around or float lazily in the wonderfully restored pools and enjoy your extra-clean conscience. Both the swim up pool and children’s splash pool were renovated using recycled materials, and the waste from all renovations was repurposed. And, as part of Iberostar’s ongoing focus on sustainability, both Iberostar Selection Albufera Park and Iberostar Selection Albufera Playa have also adopted a range of responsible, day-to-day practices.

Solar panels on roofs now mean the hotels are producing renewable energy to power their electricity and heat water. Plus, their commitment to using 100% responsibly sourced seafood by 2025 is already on track to achieving its goal. And the implementation of Winnow – an AI food-monitoring system aimed at reducing waste – as well as the eradication of single use plastics across all resorts, are also part of Iberostar’s drive towards a circular economy.

Food shouldn’t be this good at all inclusive resorts!

The Iberostar Honest Food concept is a philosophy based on fresh, homemade products. It’s about taking responsibility for health, what we eat, and for the environment. But it’s also about expanding our horizons and discovering new tastes, plus it’s delicious too.

Iberostar Selection Albufera Resort features a total of eight different eating experiences. So you can kick back at a beach grill, make any day of the week Taco Tuesday, snack healthily 24/7 or indulge in the authentic tastes of some of Europe’s culinary greats. As we said, food shouldn’t be this good at all inclusive resorts!

A lot of all inclusive resorts offer kids clubs, only Iberostar has Star Camp. An entirely revolutionary new way of entertaining and educating, Star Camp features over 140 different activities for kids aged from 4 to 17.
