Fun in a lovely setting

Good times for the whole family, great times for each individual member! Make sure your preferred destination offers a rich entertainment program, as does the family-friendly Hotel Pinija.

Still, the hotel has additional amenities you can all enjoy together all year round. Have a family tournament in mini golf under the fragrant pine trees. With older children, you can also enjoy a fun game of beach volleyball. How about renting a bike and planning a cycling trip of discovery? After all, bikes are available for rental at the hotel, in case you leave yours behind at home.
