Grand Hotel Opduin review
This family hotel on Texel is rated 8.2 overall from over 1,100 guest reviews. Families with kids rate the hotel a lot higher still. They give a 9.4 as an overall score to the hotel. More than 480 families who rated the hotel also left a review and we have read them all and based on these reviews, we have listed some of the positive and negative points of the hotel.
However, with this hotel it is difficult because there are so many accommodations, so there may be different positives and negatives for each one. Still, we tried to pick out the general points of this family hotel on Texel.
Positives Grand Hotel Opduin: many families like the hotel’s location. Close to the village and close to the beach and yet wonderfully quiet in the dunes. The friendliness of the staff and the extensive breakfast are also cited as positives. The hotel pool is also frequently mentioned by families with kids.
Negative points Grand Hotel Opduin: some families with kids indicated that the pool was very cold. Now kids are usually not that bothered by this, but it is good to keep in mind that it is not a heated pool.
2. Hotel Brasserie Den Burg
The second hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels on Texel is located in the island’s largest town: Den Burg. You can park for free at the hotel if you are by car and also at this family hotel on Texel they have several family rooms for families of three to four people.
The family rooms are between 35m2 and 40m2 in size and vary in terms of the composition of beds. Also, with the family rooms, you can choose whether or not you want a terrace with the family room. Especially for families with younger children, it can be nice to have a drink outside after the kids are asleep.
The hotel has a restaurant where you can have a snack and a drink three times a day, and it is also possible to have a drink in front of the hotel on the terrace.
Hotel Brasserie Den Burg review

Positives Hotel Brasserie Den Burg: there are three things at this family hotel on Texel that are always mentioned by families and that is that they see as positives the spacious and clean family room, the extensive breakfast and the location. The friendly staff is also frequently mentioned as a positive point of this family-friendly hotel on Texel.
Negative points Hotel Brasserie Den Burg: there are few negative points often mentioned by different families with kids. It does indicate that the hotel bar is not always open and that they regretted this. A few families found that the room was warm in the hot summer months, despite our experience usually on the Wadden Islands that it generally does not get super hot because of the wind, but of course that is also everyone’s own interpretation.
3. Hotel Boschrand
The third hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels on Texel is also located in the town of De Koog a few minutes’ walk from the center of this town. Because the island is obviously not super big, you can also walk from the hotel to the beach within 15 minutes. As a result, you can already do a lot on foot during your vacation. You can park your car for free at the hotel.
The family room offered by this hotel is a 28m2 double room, where two beds can be added in the room for the kids. Of course, the hotel has an in-room bathroom and the room also has a balcony, where parents can have a drink at the end of the day when the kids are asleep.
In addition, this family hotel on Texel has a restaurant where you can have a breakfast buffet in the morning and dine with the family in the evening. The hotel also has a terrace, where you can enjoy a drink on the terrace in the sun during the summer months. The hotel also has a number of wellness facilities such as several saunas and a steam room.

Positives Hotel Boschrand: the rooms have good beds and a nice shower, and the hotel is in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village. This is appreciated by most families with kids. The staff and breakfast are also often mentioned, and some families also indicate that the hotel is very suitable for bringing pets such as a dog.
Negative points Hotel Boschrand: Not many negative points are mentioned about the hotel. Some families did miss coffee maker and kettle in the room.
4. Stayokay Hostel Texel
The fourth hotel in this list of family-friendly hotels on Texel is the Stayokay Hostel Texel. So not a hotel, but a hostel. We always find the atmosphere of a hostel very relaxing and have slept in hostels in many different cities. Of course, a big advantage is always the price of the rooms as well. If you are looking for a cheap accommodation on Texel then this is the best choice.
What we do find a very big disadvantage of this hostel is that the family rooms are some made up of bunk beds. So you cannot lie side by side as parents. If you don’t have a problem with this then this can definitely be a nice option for a vacation on Texel. They also have family rooms for families of six (three bunk beds).
Around the hostel sits an excellent playground for the kids, and parents can have a drink outside on the hostel’s terrace. Located in seaside resort Den Burg, the hostel serves breakfast to guests in the morning.
Stayokay Hostel Texel review
The hostel receives a 7.8 overall rating from more than 1,350 reviews. Families with kids rate the hostel even higher at 8.5. More than 650 families with kids have rated this hotel, which does indicate that almost half of this hostel’s guests are families. So from this you can see that it is a very family-friendly hostel.
Positive points Stayokay Hostel Texel: most families with kids indicate that the area around the hostel is a wonderful place for kids to play. The atmosphere of the hostel is praised by many families. You can play games with the kids inside the hostel and outside there are plenty of play equipment, where the kids can expend their energy. Because the price is relatively low, most families with kids also find the value for money very good.
Negative points Stayokay Hostel Texel: a number of families report that the beds in the family rooms are not super. As one parent describes it, the beds are rather Spartan.
5. Fletcher Hotel – Restaurant de Cooghen
We did hesitate for a while whether to add this latest hotel from Fletcher to our list of most family-friendly hotels on Texel, and that’s mainly because of the rating the hotel gets from its guests. The hotel receives a 6.4 overall rating from its guests out of more than 2,000 reviews. Nevertheless, we have included the hotel in this list, as the families with kids who have slept at the hotel do give an 8 as an overall score and thus are satisfied with this hotel.
This three-star hotel is located in seaside resort De Koog, and you can walk from the hotel to the beach in a few minutes. The hotel has family rooms as large as 50m2, with both parents and kids sleeping in double beds. You can use doors to ensure that each has their own sleeping area, which ensures that you as parents also have privacy. This family room on Texel also includes a bathroom with a bathtub, which we also always like.
In addition, the hotel has a restaurant where you can go three times a day for a snack and a drink and there is also a paid wellness area at the hotel that includes a sauna.
Fletcher Hotel – Restaurant de Cooghen review
As we mentioned above, the hotel receives a 6.4 as an overall score from all guests and an 8 as an overall score from families with kids.
Positives Fletcher Hotel-Restaurant De Cooghen: The location of this family hotel on Texel is mentioned by almost all families with kids. The hotel is close to the beach. In addition, the spacious rooms and breakfast appeal to most families with kids.
Negative points Fletcher Hotel-Restaurant De Cooghen: The biggest negative point of this hotel is the noise that can be there at night. The hotel is near the nightlife, which can cause you to hear it at night. The hotel already provides earplugs for guests, but with kids this can be inconvenient. By the way, our daughter sleeps through everything once she sleeps at night, but of course that depends on your kid.
Hotel Texel with swimming pool
If you are looking for a hotel in Texel with a swimming pool, you have a number of options. We have already discussed above the Grand Hotel Opduin as a hotel that offers a family room in Texel and where you can also swim with the kids. For more information about this family hotel in Texel, take a look here. We describe the other three hotels in Texel with swimming pools below.
Roompot Kustpark Texel: located near the seaside resort of De Koog, this vacation park has several cottages for families with kids where you can stay. So you can book chalets here for families of four, as well as a villa for a family of eight. At the park there are several playgrounds, a kids club and so is an indoor pool (Pool Calluna).
This is a very large pool with a big slide, a wave pool, a paddling pool, a wild water creek and also two whirlpools. Especially if you go during a time when the weather is not super warm, this can obviously be a very nice option. For more information on the accommodations of Roompot Kustpark Texel, take a look here.
Roompot Bosch and Zee: This is another vacation park from Roompot that is suitable for families with kids and where you have a swimming pool. This is a somewhat smaller park and they have different types of apartments here for families of four. This vacation park is also located near the seaside resort of De Koog.
Again, guests can use pool Calluna, which we just described above. In fact, the two vacation parks are practically next to each other. For more information about Roompot Bosch and Zee, take a look here.
Landal Sluftervallei: this vacation park is located at the very north of the island on the edge of nature reserve the Slufter. Again, they have a spacious indoor pool with children’s slide, where the kids can play nicely. The resort also has a playground, a water playground, a bowling alley and a year-round entertainment program.
Children’s Hotel Texel
In this blog we have listed all the children’s hotels in Texel. Because it’s not a big island, you also don’t have super many options to choose from. There are a number of other hotels on Texel, but they do not offer a family room, so then you have to book two separate rooms for a family of four. Especially with smaller kids, this is obviously not ideal. If you still want to see the entire list of accommodations available in Texel, because there is no suitable hotel listed above, check here.
