McGregor Family, October 2019
We had a fantastic first holiday for our son (2 year old) the apartment and surrounding grounds were immaculate. Staff at the resort are extremely professional and friendly especially to the little ones. The Tots play activities are a great idea to break the week, we personally only attended one and the Playmaker was very friendly with our little one. One thing that could have been an improvement would have been fresh towels as showers / baths and swims were a daily occurrence. But overall we were pleased extremely satisfied with our stay and a Tots to Travel holiday would be very likely in the future. Excellent work and support from all the Tots to Travel team!
Kelly Family, October 2019
We found the booking process excellent, the staff we spoke to very helpful. We travelled with our daughter and family in separate apartments and they found it perfect for their two year old. Our only complaints are, we asked to be located close to our daughter and we couldn't have been further away, in an apartment which meant a great deal of walking for us. Although everything was provided for the tots, a few comforts for the parents would have been nice. A welcome pack to make a nice cup of tea on arrival, much needed after a long trip. I have never arrived abroad without some form of basic pack. Also some family games, even a pack of cards for entertainment during the evening. I felt the tots were well catered for, but the parents needs ignored. Also there was no toddler pool on the site which was a big disappointment. The breakfasts were very basic. We had a lovely holiday however and would consider using you again. The pre-holiday service was excellent.
Stewart Family, October 2019
The holiday was everything we hoped for and more. We had everything we could have possibly needed and the toys in the apartment were perfect for our little girl. The grounds, playgrounds and pools were great, the staff were all fantastic and the Tots playmaker) was amazing!!!! Our daughter loved her and the effort she puts in is just brilliant. I'd recommend these apartments to any parent just based on her alone! The fantastic free breakfast surpassed all expectations and the beach although yes it is a bit pebbly, is still lovely with some sandy patches, and its amazing it being so close. Overall very clean, friendly resort which makes toddler entertainment a breeze!
Diamond Family, October 2019
If you want a place to go with a young family without the stress of what taking young babies and children can bring then Tots to Travel is the company to use. We have just returned home after a week in Estepona at the Villacana Resort. It was absolutely perfect for us and our 5 month old daughter. From the indoor and outdoor heated pools to the short stroll the beach - we cannot recommend highly enough (perhaps maybe just the encouragement of booking a longer stay ????) The Essential Baby kit left for us in the room was absolutely perfect for what we needed. We used the steriliser and camera baby monitor every day and the play area in the room was perfect for story time. Since we have come home we have actually purchased the small world jungle toys as our baby loved them that much! We have already recommended Tots to Travel numerous times via social media and to our family and friends. I would not hesitate to use them again. Thanks so much to the Tots Customer Service team who helped us multiple times before and during our holiday.
Knox Family, October 2019
Our stay at the Villacana one bedroom apartment was fantastic. The property is beautifully kept, clean, quiet and feels quite safe. The apartment itself was bigger than we had expected, very clean and the Tots to Travel additions of toys and kids accessories were incredibly useful. The pool areas were quiet and clean. Breakfast was well catered with a good selection of cooked and fresh foods. The on site restaurant, Baobab Beach was good value and had a good menu with plenty of choice. The staff were all friendly and helpful, my kids are still talking about our lovely waitress. We’d go back again in the morning.
Ratcliffe Family, September 2019
The essentials pack and all the toys were perfect for our 3 year old. She loved the activities in the morning and afternoon with Tots to Travel rep. We will definitely use Tots to Travel again.
Lavender Family, September 2019
The Tots Playmaker is amazing and totally makes this holiday. Our second time at this property and it didn’t fail.
Williams Family, September 2019
Great family friendly facilities and perfect location on the beach with numerous swimming pool options as well! We would definitely recommend to friends and family!
Austin Family, September 2019
Everything was taken exceptional care of for our arrival, the receptionists were fab at sorting any queries and gave us a lovely welcome and send off! The restaurant staff all very patient and kind with delicious food. The cleaning staff all very good! Would highly recommend for anyone travelling with Tots! Thank you Tots to Travel
Menezes Family, August 2019
We had a great time. The service was excellent and as described!
Family stayed August 2019
Overall we had a lovely holiday. The value for money of the resort is fantastic and the staff and service were superb. The Tots essential kit we received was excellent (could maybe do with a bath mat adding) with good quality toys and books which our little one really enjoyed playing with. The apartment was nice and most importantly felt safe and secure. The only drawback on the apartment we found was that the noise from other apartments carries through quite badly. We were in a one bedroom- ground floor apartment and were sometimes disturbed by the noise from the apartment above, often during the night when they were returning from the onsite entertainment. The swimming pool was really good and quite quiet in the morning and there were usually plenty of sunbeds. The play areas were really useful as well and the Tots Playmaker, Kay was fantastic in providing activities for the kids to keep them entertained. We ended up eating at the onsite restaurant on a number of evenings as the food was good quality and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We would definitely use Tots to Travel again in the future and would be happy to return to the Villacana resort.
Sharples Family, August 2019
It was fantastic.
Smith Family, August 2019
The staff are super friendly and helpful, pool and play area were perfect for us, nice entertainment during the evening and we felt safe, secure and happy.
Brown Family, August 2019
We had a fantastic first family holiday with our 7 month old baby at Villacana. The Tots kit far exceeded our expectations and made our holiday so much easier. The apartment was great and the pool area perfect for little ones. Will definitely be booking again.
Rees-Griffiths Family, July 2019
First time away with our 6 month old, I was blown away with the apartment and its surroundings. The essential kit was such a god send and our daughter loved the toys, books and play mat in the apartment. It was fantastic having a terrace so that we could relax while she was sleeping. Would highly recommend.
Moger Family, July 2019
We had a wonderful stay at Villacana. The play area was fantastic for our 1 & 3 year old boys, particularly the 1 year old. Kay the Tots Playmaker was amazing, so friendly and very natural with the children. The pool was good, the beach not so good, but we drove to nearby beaches. We often used the takeaway service at the club’s restaurant in the evenings while the boys slept.
Loveday Family, June 2019
Lovely resort and apartment with a decent pool with lots of shade. Breakfast and restaurant good quality and value.
Peskett Family, June 2019
This was our first overseas holiday with our son (18 months old) and it was perfect. He absolutely loved all the toys in the room and the lovely play area at the resort. The space felt safe and the staff were lovely. I would highly recommend.
Lewis Family, June 2019
Absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly receptionists who made a huge fuss of our son and told him how he was going to have so much fun on his holiday, they weren't wrong! When we arrived at our apartment the living room and bathroom were kitted out with beautiful toys, there was even a little bike which my little boy (who is 3) loved and insisted on scooting around the complex every day on it. We felt at home right away. The entertainment was great for both the children and the adults.The grounds of the complex were beautiful, filled with gorgeous flowers and very well kept.Needless to say we'll be booking to go back next year!
Finegan Family, May 2019
Myself, hubsband and 23 month old stayed in the 1 bed Villacana apartment and we had such a fantastic holiday..stress free and so enjoyable. I would def use again and recommend Tots to Travel to friends and family (I've already got onto my sister for next summer). The resort was fab, we weren't really expecting it to be as nice. Pool was lovely and warm for little one and the weekly activities were a nice distraction for her. The apartment was kitted out with everything we needed including monitor,cot, books and toys. The blackout blinds ensured our little one got all the sleep she needed. Definitely recommend for an enjoyable toddler friendly holiday..Thanks Tots to Travel or a fab holiday, such great memories made!!
Foley Family, May 2019
Our Tots to Travel experience was fantastic, I would highly recommend. It was our first holiday with our 1 year old and the facilities and equipment provided were ideal for her and made a stress free holiday.
Lavender Family, May 2019
This is a lovely property that is very well suited for young children. The property is lacking a small splash pool which is a shame as the large pools are very deep and quite cold. Kay on the entertainment team is amazing but the play area could do with some shade. Overall an amazing trip and we’re planning on returning in a few months.
Ellison Family, May 2019
We have a three year old and one year old twins and so they thought of travelling with three children and only two adults was a little daunting! However we honestly had a great relaxing holiday - activities were great, Kay the Tots Playmaker was great and we even made Happy hour each day! Would definitely recommend to anyone travelling with young children.
Skuse Family, May 2019
We have just returned from a lovely 10 day holiday at Villacana resort and I would highly recommend it. The staff are fantastic, the resort is about an hour from Malaga and the property is beautiful with stunning gardens and amazing pools. Our apartment was clean, well equipped and had a lovely enclosed courtyard with sun loungers, chairs and a table. There were toys and books in the apartment to keep our almost 4 year old busy and we had excellent WiFi throughout our stay. It’s close to some great restaurants - the Baobab is part of the resort and it was great for lunch and supper if you didn’t feel like cooking, 90 Miles, El Carnicero and Casa Miguel were also fantastic. We hired a car and found it invaluable as we enjoyed exploring the areas up and down the coast from the resort. I imagine that in school holidays it’s a lot busier and perhaps not as peaceful but would still be worth a visit.
O'Riordan Family, May 2019
We enjoyed a fantastic week away with our 1-year-old in this lovely family - friendly hotel. The highlight was the walled garden leading from each apartment. The toy selection also exceeded expectations.
McInnes Family, May 2019
Tots to Travel have made holidaying with a toddler that bit easier. Lots of lovely, clean toys. Shaded play areas with lots of activities for tots. Most other family holidays cater to 4 years and over so this was a lovely change. Definitely be booking via Tots to Travel again. Lovely service to pre and post booking without being too pushy to sell other services.
Moore Family, May 2019
Fantastic. This was our first family holiday, our 21 month old son loved every second at Villacana and Kay the Tots Playmaker was brilliant. Lisa was brilliant too, made a huge fuss to celebrate my wife's birthday. The accommodation was perfect. The indoor toys were perfect and our son loved the tractor the best. In the play area he loved the sandpit. Staff were great very friendly and helpful. A beautiful setting in a lovely part of Spain. We can't wait to book our next holiday and one day will return to Villacana. Thank you Tots to Travel and the Villacana staff.
Croft Family, April 2019
Absolutely delighted with the service Tots to Travel provided. Far exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to book with you again.
Oakley Family, April 2019
We are just home after a wonderful holiday in the Villacana resort. My 19 month old literally played with every toy, read every book and had a lovely time on this family friendly holiday. The food was gorgeous, the resort is stunning. And the extras provided by Tots to Travel were invaluable. I cannot recommend enough and my husband agrees so it must have made an impression! We will definitely be booking with Tots next year. Thank you so much.
Jarman Family, September 2018
We had a really lovely stay here, the complex has a good choice of pools and restaurants and a small playground - we came in September and it was very quiet though apparently much busier in summer.
Walton Family, July 2018
Just to say a massive thank you all at Tots to Travel! We’ve had an amazing time! Villacana was clean, well equipped and perfect for our toddler. We thought the older boys would be happy just with the pool but Villacana have thought of everything. The older 2 were always busy with Andy at the free kids club, so much attention to detail and effort with little prizes and super activities. PlayStation Club, football club, swimming games - pool volleyball was a big hit! The beach was great too and nice and near, however we did find and extra nice beach 10 minutes walk up the beach. Plus thoroughly recommend Villacana Pony Club - our ride on the beach was beautiful! All the staff were friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble and the Cuban Night was a real unexpected treat. All the above makes the resort sound really busy but it’s quiet and small and you can do nothing and chill too. Also happy hour 241 on drinks 4-6 kept hubby very happy! Thanks so much, we will totally be re booking! Memories to treasure!
Family Stayed October 2017
This is a great beach resort with some nice restaurants all within walking distance and a great location for exploring by car or bus. Estapona port and San Pedro beach are worth a visit! It was a really really nice resort and easy travelling with our little girl.
