Tots Exclusive Experience awarded Mumsnet Rated

Here at Tots to Travel we are thrilled to announce that our Tots Exclusive Experience resorts are now Mumsnet Rated!
This prestigious trust-mark is awarded to companies that provide an outstanding service to parents, as tested and awarded by real parents – who know what Mums and Dads with young children really need to enjoy a family holiday.


For the testing process, Mumsnet sent 10 real Mumsnet panel families with children under five to stay at our seven Tots Exclusive Experience destinations. They then asked the testers to review their stay based on key family friendly criteria such as quality of play facilities, provision of our Baby & Toddler Essential Kit and the suitability of the accommodation and overall holiday experience for families with young children.

We were really happy to learn that of the 10 tester families who went to try out our Tots Exclusive Experience resorts, a whopping 100% would recommend us and 90% were satisfied by their experience – a great result that the whole Tots team are really proud of!

Thoughts from Wendy Shand, Founder Tots to Travel:

‘We’re thrilled to know that our Tots Exclusive Experience resorts have been given a big ‘thumbs-up’ by Mumsnetters for providing parents with everything they need to holiday abroad with confidence. And by understanding the things that matter to them, we’ll continue to make sure every family can really relax and enjoy their holiday time together.’


‘We had everything we could possibly need already in the house. The accommodation more than suited the needs of a family with kids under five and the safety equipment made life so relaxed. Having tried it I cannot now imagine having a different kind of holiday while my children are small. We left recharged and reconnected as a family. I really couldn’t recommend Lemon (Berry Farm) more highly. We are going to book again.’
‘The Tots Play Zone aspect really made the holiday. Must highlight the friendly staff. They were so welcoming and kind to all the children and did everything they could to help. Genuinely cared we were all happy and enjoying the resort. Not having to bring any of the Essential Kit provided made packing and travelling much simpler. Would highly recommend a Tots to Travel holiday with under 5s as it does make it simpler and more relaxing.’
‘They really thought of everything! I cannot say thank you enough. We have had a difficult time and are fairly broke at the moment, so this opportunity meant we could carve out time together as a family and all of us feel so much better for it. It was also our first holiday as just the three of us (without friends or grandparents) and I will look back on our week as some of the happiest times we have had together so far. Thank you!’
The children’s bedroom was fantastic! It was clear that a lot of thought and effort had gone into making it feel special. The children noticed the toys immediately and they were a huge hit! We even managed to have two lie ins during the week as they played with them instead of coming to find us! The fact that the entire resort has been designed with little ones in mind meant that we could totally relax knowing that they were safe and entertained. We have all returned home with fabulous memories and are seriously considering booking another Tots Exclusive Experience resort for next year!’
‘The place was perfect for under 5s – or in our case under 3s. This is the first time we’ve been on holiday with kids and actually felt able to relax. I spoke to another mum at the pool who was in a non-Tots villa and she was worried about the stairs, which lead straight down from the living room. It would have been stressful with our fearless 11 month-old if the Tots installed gates weren’t there. All in all, we had a fantastic family holiday and none of us wanted to come home! We will always remember it and have already started browsing Tots to Travel for next year…’
‘The accommodation was perfect for us and we had everything that we needed. The villa was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. It was a real home away from home. Although we were initially planning to do some trips out, we ended up just spending the whole week in the villa, as it was so relaxing and we were all enjoying ourselves so much. It was the first holiday we’ve been on since having children where we both managed to read a couple of books! My 4 year old has talked about it non stop since we got back!’
‘Tots to Travel themselves were great in terms of communication. I’ve come across them in the past and would definitely use them now. We had friends travelling with us to Villacana (not with Tots to Travel) and the difference in terms of comfort with everything laid on by Tots to Travel was huge.’
