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.
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.
Cooper Family, May 2019
Had a brilliant holiday. Everything was set up so well for the kids who had a ball. I couldn't recommend enough
Young Family, May 2019
Villacana Resort was perfect for a young family. The toys, play stations outside and the atmosphere of the whole resort was ideal for us. A short distance from the beach which was great too. There isn't much to do in the surrounding area but there is more than enough on site to keep young children entertained. We took a taxi down to Estepona which was lovely. The restaurant on site doesn't open until 7pm in the evening so this wasn't suitable for us as a family as we like to eat supper around 5.45-6pm. Gregorio restaurant opposite was open from 4pm so we ate there 2 evenings. The shop isn't open all day so check at reception for their opening hours. All in all this was a perfect holiday for a young family venturing abroad for the first time with two young children.
Harley Family, April 2019
Everything was perfect, have never used Tots to Travel before but cannot rate them highly enough and will definitely be back. Have already told all of my friends with young children about it. Special mention to Kay, the Tots Playmaker who was absolutely phenomenal, she knew exactly how to treat each individual child, they had an absolute blast with her and she saved my sanity and allowed me to actually chill!
Family Stayed April 2019
The Tots play zone and activity sessions definitely exceeded my expectations - it kept my children entertained for hours, and being able to relax with a drink on the daybeds or on the sun loungers just next to them whilst they safely played was lovely. Kay the Playmaker was superb from the onset - my daughter who can be clingy around strangers took to her straight away. She was excellent at engaging the children and encouraging parents to get involved too. I also enjoyed the chance to chat with and get to know other Tots families which I hadn't really considered before we went. We loved the beautiful gardens, design of the apartment buildings and how peaceful and tranquil it was.
