  1. Spain and Portugal with Kids

    Hi Dave,

    You gave us great advice to visit Naxos a few years ago which we LOVED. Now we’ve booked a trip in and out of Lisbon for 11 days in late June/early but want to incorporate Madrid. Good or bad idea? We have a 7 and 4 year old. Any other spots in the region that are a must? We were also thinking on trying to go south and stay at a beach resort for a few days. Don’t want to overdo it, though!

    Thanks so much!

      Honestly, there is so much to see in Portugal and it’s such a charming country I would stick to it for your 11 days. Do Spain on its own trip.

  2. Hotel for A Family in Madrid Neighborhood

    We are in Madrid for the tennis ATPs in May. The tennis is on in the Caja Magica and I am looking for somewhere for a family to stay not too far from there. This is our first visit so I’m not familiar with the neighbourhoods.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      There are not many hotels or rentals in that area of Madrid. Try Artrip Hotel in central Madrid. It has large family rooms with bunk beds and is close to Lavapies subway station with direct trains to San Fermín station – a short walk from the stadium.

  3. Is One Week in Madrid Too Long with Kids?

    I really enjoy your blog! How many days did you stay in Madrid? Did you visit any other cities either before or after your stay there? I’m questioning whether 7 days is too long for the kids.

    1. Santorini Dave The Hotel Expert

      Unless you’re really interested in Spanish culture, art, and history then yes, with one week, I would try to get to at least one other city (Seville or Barcelona).
