flying to bilbao where 2 stay with 2 children for 4 nights?

We can get reasonable flights to Bilbao but don't know were to stay with 2 of our children aged 11 and 8. Don't want to spend the 4 days wandering around Bilbao as that wouldn't be their idea of fun. We need a hotel or apartment that is suitable in a resort/town that is geared towards families on holidays? Is there anywhere within suitable distance from Bilbao airport or should we fly somewhere else instead? Thanks

Try Plentzia or Gorliz, about 20 kms from Bilbao, beautiful fishing town, three beaches, full of kids, good places to eat, good communication with Bilbao on the metro system (30´ride), clean, nice, absolutely safe.

Getxo would be another good alternative, a bit closer to Bilbao, three beaches, bigger town, metro takes 20´ to Bilbao

We just returned from Bilbao. This city was our absolute favorite. We travelled with our 16 year old daughter and stayed right across the street from the Guggenheim at Gran Hotel Domaine Bilbao. The service we had at this hotel was THE BEST we have ever had at any hotel in the world. Most of the staff speak English and can help you with suggestions of things to do. The museum was superb and transportation is affordable, clean, and reliable. Bilbao was very family-oriented and kid-friendly. My only regret is not having more time in this city.

If you want to visit Bilbao with your family, you can stay at Bilbaoflat's. It's an apartment ideal for groups and families situated in the historic and commercial centre of Bilbao.
