From the minute we made an enquiry, to the minute we left the resort, we were really impressed by the levels of customer service received. It was so easy to travel with a tot, and every detail had been thought about. From a call the day prior to check whether had any last minute queries (which we did, and were instantly resolved) to the staff at the resort, who were all absolutely fantastic. We will definitely be booking again with Tots to Travel, and I can't wait to make more lovely memories. Thank you everyone!
Dowling Family, July 2019
This was such a lovely place for our family to holiday at. The Tots to Travel play area by the pool was fantastic, the kids played while we sat on our sun loungers! It was all very safe and toddler friendly, so we really felt able to relax. The Tots Playmaker was fantastic, she organised fantastic activities for the kids and made my children feel really welcome and special. The quality of toys in the apartment were excellent, my kids enjoyed going back to the apartment to play with them! Footsteps, stair gates, bed guards and bath toys were all provided and of an excellent standard, so I didn’t need to take anything with me as they had everything they could possibly want. Highly recommend Tots To Travel and would definitely book again.
Gould Family, July 2019
Such a great holiday at Villacana! Spotless place. Helpful staff. A lovely size and not too many properties and therefore people. Great facilities for children’s entertainment. And a wonderful kit for my son to play with when he got there.
Woodward Family, June 2019
We enjoyed a wonderful 8 day stay at Villacana with Tots to Travel. Perfect for young children and excellent quality restaurants nearby
Lewis Family, June 2019
I would highly recommend Tots to Travel for anyone with young children. The apartment was great for everyone, with loads of great things for the kids to play with, perfect for both my 1 and 4 year old. The toddler play area was also brilliant and the Tots Playmaker that came everyday and did activities with the little ones was just great. Big relaxing comfy seats for parents to relax in while the kids were kept busy, brilliant.
Stuart Family, May 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Everything was so easy and Kay, the Tots playmaker was truly excellent.
Clarke Family, May 2019
We had an amazing holiday. From the accommodation, to the entertainment and staff. Everything was more than we could of asked for.
Jones Family, May 2019
We had a fantastic holiday! The apartment exceeded our expectations and the variety and quality of books and toys was brilliant! The play areas were perfect for our children. The hotel felt safe and was very family friendly and the the Tots playmaker was fantastic!! Will definitely book through Tots to Travel again and would happily go back to Villacana again!
Craig Family, May 2019
We had a fantastic time at Villacana. The property, grounds, pools and toilets were all extremely clean and well kept. It felt very safe there and I was happy for my 5 year old to go off and play in the pools with friends herself while I relaxed on a lounger. The essential kit and toys were good and clean. The kids club was a good addition. We look forward to our next stay at Villicana or another Tots to Travel location
Dawes Family, May 2019
We had an absolutely wonderful time at with Tots to Travel at Villacana. The apartment was perfectly set up for our 2.5 year old, with age appropriate toys arranged in a cute play area, a private and enclosed garden, an adorable children’s room, and helpful things like a stool, a potty, bath toys, etc. They also left us a huge fruit basket and bottle of wine which was very welcome on arrival! The only negative thing I found is that the bed and pillows were quite uncomfortable, both were too firm for my liking and caused my bad back to flare up a bit. The resort was beautiful with three pools, a decent bar and restaurant, and good shaded and sunny areas to lounge in. The staff were all so welcoming and helpful, and they all remembered our son’s name which I thought was sweet. Kay, who delivered the Tots playmaker sessions (free and they ran 10-12 and 4-6 every weekday), was amazing with the kids and did so many fun activities with them. My son fell in love with her I think! It wasn’t too busy, and we met lots of families with similarly aged kids so our son had lots of kids to play with. We hired a car and I would say I was essential for getting around the area. This could be a negative if you don’t like to drive on holiday, but it worked for us. The only slight negative I would say was the breakfast. It was okay but there was a paucity if healthy options I felt. I would have enjoyed the addition of more fresh fruit (they often just had watermelon or oranges), some better whole wheat bread, maybe some porridge, hard boiled eggs, nuts or seeds, etc. Usually on offer were sausages or bacon, fried or scrambled eggs, tomatoes or beans or mushrooms, pancakes, pastries, white bread, granola, honeys and syrups, some sort of cake, plain yogurt, some sort of soft cheese, and juice. The free coffee was not very good though the coffee they made at the bar was good. Their lunch menu was good and the food was decent, prices reasonable, and cheap alcohol. The wine on offer was not amazing but was passable, especially considering how cheap a very generous glass was. Had a tiny bit of the “Brits abroad” feel at times, probably because of its location, but honestly not too much and certainly not enough to stop us from returning! Overall, a wonderful experience with warm and friendly staff in a beautiful location. Will return!
Richmond Family, May 2019
We had a fantastic time at Villacana. Kay (the Tots Playmaker) was great and the kids loved her. The facilities were just right for a family with young children... I've already recommended it to all my friends with kids under 3 years.
Van den Berg Family, May 2019
We had a great time. Such a lovely space for our 2 and 4 year old. The toys were beautiful and engaging.
Sealy Family, April 2019
Lovely relaxing holiday! The Villacana Resort is a great place, really pretty and well kept with lovely staff. It's nice that it has large grassy areas and plenty of loungers. We loved the play areas and Kay's Playmaker sessions and the toy area in the apartment were lovely. The pool is deep for little ones but ours were very happy playing on the steps. Not the best beach but some pretty ones a short drive away. Good breakfast offer and food and drinks all really good throughout. Fab holiday and would definitely recommend.
Farrance Family, April 2019
The Villacana resort is immaculately kept with three great swimming pools, restaurant with super food and a great poolside bar. All of the staff were super, so very kind and accommodating and doted on our 9 month old. We flew into Gibraltar which was only a 35-40 minute drive away and being a small bit pretty much brand new airport is a much better experience with small children than Malaga. Overall, I’d highly recommend Villacana resort and Tots to Travel.
Russell Family, April 2019
A fabulous first holiday - the tots team have got it so right! Lots of toys and facilities for little people, making it a relaxing break for the adults!
Lamble Family, April 2019
Pretty resort with a choice of pools and within walking distance of the beach. The kids loved the Tots play area and toys supplied in the villa!
Luff Family, April 2019
We loved every minute of our holiday. The apartment was spotless and the toy selection was great. The Tots play area and Playmaker sessions were fab.
Mason Family, April 2019
Our first trip with Tots to Travel was great, the toy corner in the apartment was a big hit with our 10 month old! Having the essential kit was really useful. The Tots play zones were great as well, we had an amazing time and have already booked our next trip!
Lavin Family, April 2019
My family and I had our first holiday abroad, and thanks to tots it was a wonderful experience. The girls loved it and I think they will remember it always.
Family stayed April 2019
Was such a wonderful holiday, thank you so much. We had a bit of trouble at beginning with an unsuitable room allocation but it was dealt with efficiently and we were given a perfect room. The toys and books were brand new and the Playmaker sessions were excellent.
Rich Family, April 2019
We couldn’t have wished for more from our holiday with Tots to Travel, they really had thought of everything to make the stay stress free. We have a 6 year old and 18 month old and the play areas in apartment and in resort were great for both! Everything had really special touches from the equipment to the Nutella teddy bread at breakfast! Thank you for a stress free break!
Family stayed September 2018
Just got back from a lovely family holiday with our two children who are 3 years and 8 months old. We were really impressed by how family friendly the resort was. The apartments were great and we had our own private garden which the children loved. The pool was fab, so much space between the loungers and lots of grass which meant it felt very safe for our youngest rolling around. There was a good choice of restaurants on site and a nice beach. We did walk out to Cancelada however the walk isn’t great (over the A7) and wasn’t ideal with little ones. However with nice restaurants on site and a little shop there wasn’t really any need to leave. We would definitely return.
