Flyer talkers' favourite family summer beach hotels on BA routes

Am I allowed to ask in this forum for people's favourite beachy high quality family hotels they might find on a typical BA route/destination? Proper sandy beaches, quality furnishings, good food. Budget circa £10k (incl flights - doesn't have to be premium cabins) for 2 weeks August family of 5...

Esp interested with thoughts on:
Corsica
Sardinia
Curaçao
Aruba
Bonaire
Elba
Malta
Gozo
Madeira

Mods please move/delete if inappropriate to ask but all you lovely flyer talkers are always such a great source of info and having spent most summers in our own apartment in spain, I've not much experience on the hotel front. Trip advisor always seems such a minefield. Thanks for any suggestions.

Two ideas for Sardinia. I've never been, but I know of people that have been and they seem to be solid properties:

- Forte Village Resort - Bouganville
- Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna

I would certainly avoid the Caribbean in summer months - hot, sticky, and in some places hurricane season (although Aruba is not in the hurricane belt). Having once been stuck at 9 in a single hotel room because of a hurricane, I can confirm that it is not a great choice for a family holiday!!

The Esplendido in Peurto Soller, Mallorca. Lovely hotel, works for couples and families.
Quite a small town, but has a beach and a harbour so has the oppurtunity to explore.

Tenerife?

Some nice end hotels in the Costa Adeje part (well away from Playa de las Americas!) and I used to holiday there when Jnr P was younger.

There is

Loro Parque
Mt Teide (4 x 4 all day trip with some wonderful stopping places/views)
Waterpark

Re hotels, H10, Iberostars and the Costa Adeje Gran Hotel are very good indeed

Just another option to consider perhaps.

We do the Côte d'Azur in August; short flight times from the UK, luxury hotels, great food and weather. It's not cheap but is really great - I recommend either Chateau St Martin in Vence or FS Grand Hotel in St Jean Cap-Ferrat.
