The ultimate Tots holiday designed by us
Costa Blanca, Spain
Price from £1,185 - £2,375 per week
Sleeps up to 6 in total plus 3 infants in cots in 3 bedrooms
Knowing that it’s the small details that count, Tots To Travel put together an exacting brief to create the ultimate haven for families and their tots...which hosts Nikki and Andy have delivered to perfection.
Here you’ll find armfuls of toys, shaded play, tot-sized loos in places that you’ll need them most, carefully designed toddler pools and ice pops a-plenty.
This is the very definition of blissful family holidays. Included in your stay:
The star of the show is the gigantic heated pool with separate toddler section, closely followed by the equally large playground, both safely gated. Prepare for hours of fun as your kids find new friends and relax into the swing of life here. The facilities are shared with the two other villas at Almond Grove.
Against a stunning backdrop of endless fields of almond groves and rolling hills, here the peace and tranquillity is only broken by the sound of little ones laughing, barbecues sizzling and your small person jumping in the pool, again!
Pop open a cool drink from the poolside bar while your tots get busy in the indoor play room which is bursting with toys then reconvene for a snack on the shaded terrace to debate who can bounce highest on the huge trampoline.
And for a gentle change of scenery, consider long, lazy days on the sandy beaches of Costa Blanca, colourful markets and picturesque villages or take a trip to the nearby chocolate factory. Or perhaps just stay put? There’s no need to go anywhere!

Hopcroft Family, October 2019
Wow wow wow! Almond Grove delivered everything we had hoped and more, from the spacious villas with the lovely welcome pack. To the fabulous pool areas loved by my 10 year old and 4 year old, the onsite games room and bar where enjoyed by all the family. The extras just kept on coming delivered by the hosts amazing bbq, Monday brekkie and massage was my favourite part as well as the movie night loved by all 6 children in our group. I would highly recommend Almond Grove to friends and family it’s the perfect mix of villa life with all the added extras of a luxury hotel.
Winterbone Family, October 2019
The hosts were so welcoming and the property exceeded our expectations. Our boys loved waking up every morning and running to the playground or finding Mia and George (the family dogs) for a cuddle. We can't wait to return!
Ransome Family, September 2019
Our second visit to Almond Grove. Just as good, if not better than the first.
Tweed Family, August 2019
We had an absolutely fantastic stay at The Almond Grove this summer. The owners and their two lovely children were perfect hosts. The play area was everything you could ask and the villa immaculate. The hosts put on a number of wonderful nights of entertainment- the welcome bbq, Mummy Monday and cinema night are so much fun. Just make sure you ask to sample the snails and homemade Bailey’s. We will definitely look to return with more friends and family. Thank you.
Pippard Family, April 2019
We came back with friends and it's got even better!! Soft play, activities, away day kit room, new tiles - just fantastic. The hosts are a lovely family who have made this happen through years of hard work, and are so friendly and welcoming. Day trips to the beach, Alicante, local market are all straightforward if you want to explore and then the casas are just a perfect haven to relax in. Love the welcome bbq, movie night for the kids, sangria night and all the little touches that take the stresses away. The kids keep talking about it and when we're going to move to Spain... It's brilliant here, you must go.
Guppy Family, May 2019
We had a wonderful week at Almond Grove. Facilities were incredible and our children had the time of their lives!
Pepperell Family, October 2018
Just returned from a two week stay with 3 under 3. It was the best holiday I’ve had. The gated areas allowed me to relax and let them wander off to play safely. The pool really is that fabulous! Toddler shallow area a brilliant idea for them to play. The playground really is that big and for sole use of the three villas. I wondered if it might have been a local park but nope it’s there! The kids adored it and again safely. The house is tastefully decorated and gorgeous fluffy white towels! Stairgates, kitchen cupboard locks, cots, bed guards, night light, high chairs and sippy cups all greatly appreciated. Although the hosts were there we didn’t know and no one intruded on our quiet family time which was nice. But at the same time we knew if we needed anything we could ask. Activities for the kids was a lovely idea and the complimentary meal and drinks for adults a nice touch. Honesty bar was fab, supplying milk helped as local supermarkets not that into the fresh stuff. Welcome food was awesome. Very accommodating to our 2am arrival and so lovely to have a cup of tea, toast and sandwich for lunch before worrying about venturing out. You’ve got an amazing place and I will be sure to recommend it.
Tait Family, September 2018
Another wonderful family holiday at Almond Grove. Second year in a row and we’ll be back next year, especially since there are enhancements and new services each year. We are welcomed like part of the family. The facilities are perfect for families - the children can play safely and you can keep an eye on them while you relax. Beautifully peaceful, sharing with just a couple of likeminded families but we often had the place to ourselves. Bliss.
Armes Family, September 2018
We have just returned from Almond Grove and have nothing but positive praise not only for the location, accommodation, and the facilities but also for the hosts, their children and of course Max and Mia the dogs. We have 16 month old twins and a 3 year old toddler so finding a suitable holiday destination not to far from the UK which is 'toddler friendly' is quite a tall order. I spent many a night looking until I stumbled upon this which seemed to tick all my boxes and I assure you there were many! Sometimes places don't live up to your expectation but actually Almond Grove exceeded ours and we have already booked to go again next year! The accommodation is beautiful, home from home! Lovely decor, a welcome pack with essentials, Sky TV, better internet than at home and the best bit for us it had all the baby paraphernalia included which means we didn't need to worry about how we would cope with 3 children living abroad for a week. Highchairs, monitors, cots, toys, changing mats, bath toys, potties, bath seats - the list is endless! The facilities are superb too - an adult pool, toddler pool all gated, endless kids bikes/scooters, a pirate ship sand pit, climbing frame, trampoline with soft flooring and shade, a pool table, a bar, darts board, separate play area inside for the kids, changing facilities, free lollies - what more could you ask for!! The hosts really make this place too. So passionate about what they have created and also they go out of there way to ensure you have a super holiday, always wanting feedback to help make the holiday even better (if its even possible)! They arranged a birthday cake for my husband and organised a meal out and even drove us so we could have a drink! Now where do you get this level of hospitality?! What isn't obvious from looking at the photos is all the extras they arrange for your stay. Welcome BBQ, cinema night with Sangria and popcorn, Mummy Monday, homecooked dinner and facial with a glass of prosecco, craft mornings for the kids, free lollies, free bar for 2019. These added extras are just the icing on the cake! Fab, Fab, Fab!! no criticism here only deserved praise for an amazing family with fantastic vision of what families want/need on holiday. Honestly faultless, please book you will have the most stress free holiday you'll ever have creating lasting memories for you and your family.
Pain Family, May 2018
We spent an amazing week here with our two-year-old daughter and four-month-old baby boy in May. The property is immaculately clean, safe and has everything you could ask for. Our villa had great size rooms, was comfortable and everything was spotless, including the excellent selection of toys, some of which were brand new. The pool area is an incredible size - bigger than you would find at some hotels. The brand new playground was a huge hit with our daughter who would’ve spent all day, every day on the swings if she could. The location is ideal - beautifully situated in rural Spain surrounded by mountains and incredible views yet not too far from Alicante airport and with plenty of things to do within a reasonable driving distance. The villa had a great guide book put together by our hosts with loads of handy tips on things to do and places to eat nearby. Finally, a word for the brilliant hosts and go out of their way to make you feel settled and make sure you have everything you need. The welcome BBQ was ideal after a day travelling and my wife loved ‘Mummy Monday’. The biggest hit was probably George the dog who would come and say hello to our daughter every morning! She’s already asking when she can go back to Spainish house...
Ransome Family, August 2018
We decided to rebook within ten minutes of arriving. Property was excellent and the hosts brilliant.
Edwards Family, July 2018
Everything about the place was perfect! We were very well looked after during our stay. The pool and park are amazing and the whole place is secure and safe.
Hobbs Family, June 2018
Wonderful holiday at The Almond Grove. Nikki and Andy were wonderful hosts and provided just enough care and attention without being intrusive. The villa was perfect - just as we had hoped and the toddler pool and playground were excellent so lots of fun was had by our 3 year old daughter. We hope to visit again one day.

Atkin Family, September 2017
We stayed at Almond Grove in September. We were worried about a week away with our very active 2 year old son, but everything about the place was perfect! Tots to Travel were brilliant when planning our holiday & the host Nikki was so helpful before we arrived with her emails. During our stay nothing was too much trouble, our whole villa was full of everything we needed for our son. The location & views were stunning, all 3 of us loved relaxing around the pool! We’ve since had our second little one & are already talking about going back to visit! Thanks so much
The Boswell Family, September 2017
What a fantastic place to stay! Set up in the Spanish hills with lovely views. Plenty of toys for children to play with and the pool and playground is lovely! Our hosts were fantastic and could not have done more for us. Their children were so lovely to our children and made them feel very safe and happy. The complimentary BBQ was delicious and gave us time to relax after our travels. The villa itself was great too. Milk, bread and nibbles on arrival with wine too. ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING was thought of, from sterilisers to swim nappies. A great holiday if you want to relax and just watch your children play and enjoy themselves without the worries of this world. Very informative about the local area for where is good to eat and the beach is about 40 mins drive. We went twice. An absolute gem discovery and we will definitely be back soon! Thanks again! We've only been home an hour and already feeling holiday blues. Till next time!
The Wall Family, August 2017
The most peaceful retreat with incredible hosts. Laying next to the crystal clear pool, hot sun beating down, is absolute bliss. 5* accommodation facilities and furnishings, great authentic food and perfect surroundings. Will stay time and time again. Thank you Andy & Nikki for always making our stay so inimitable!
The Matthews family, July 2017

This beautiful Spanish Casa has been fully renovated, incorporating luxury modern-rustic interiors with practicality for families. Little ones will be in their element with a fun kids' bedroom design and their own designated play area stacked with toys and books. A floorplan is available to view in the image gallery above.
The private courtyard and enclosed garden of this villa are great for tucking into fabulous family barbecues, enjoying outdoor breakfasts, or simply for sipping on a drink as the sun goes down.
As one of only three villas at this tranquil and rural destination, expect peace and quiet but also a great place for little tots to make friends. For larger parties, all three villas can be rented out together.
Tots to Travel have worked with the owners here to help build a child friendly haven. This means fun and games in spades but with safety and parent peace of mind as the priority. The huge heated pool and toddler pool are safely enclosed with buggy-friendly access, as is the enormous playground. All a stone’s throw from the poolside bar where parents can relax while the little holiday VIPs play.
For refreshments, head to the shaded poolside terrace which has facilities for communal dining and a bar offering snacks and drinks. You’ll also find a freezer of homecooked meals in here, which you can purchase from your hosts, and there is a small onsite shop, shopping service and babysitting service available.
The friendly British hosts live onsite with their two young children and lovable family dog, so they’ll be on hand to help you with whatever you need during your stay.
The traditional Spanish town of La Romana is around ten minutes’ drive. With a charming old-timey feel, you’ll discover plenty of wine, olives, almonds, shoe making and marble, which are still the main means of income for the town. Most importantly it has three fun play parks for little ones to explore.
You’ll also find three supermarkets, two pharmacies and a good selection of bars and restaurants ranging from traditional tapas bars to an American diner. The local markets held every Wednesday and Saturday are also worth a visit and are the perfect place to pick up some deliciously fresh ingredients.
If you fancy a trip to the beach, it’s around a 45-50 minute drive to reach some stunning golden sands. Particularly recommended is Playa Lisa at Santa Pola, which has lovely calm water and soft sand, plus a castle and an aquarium to visit in the town.
