  • Reich Family, October 2019

    A lovely, relaxing time. Immaculate resort with perfect activities for the little one.

  • Ray Family, October 2019

    Fantastic holiday at Villicana, apartments are spacious and have everything you need for a self-catering holiday, even a barbecue. The kids club is great and the staff go out of their way to make you and your children feel very welcome.

  • Hughes Family, October 2019

    Tots to Travel took all of the stress out of travelling away with a young family and provided everything that we needed. The travel kit reduced our packing which was great. The staff at the accommodation could not have been more friendly or helpful. All of the above allowed us to focus on quality family time together and have a fabulous holiday. We will certainly be booking through Tots to Travel again.

  • Hoy Family, October 2019

    Very happy with every step of booking with Tots to Travel. Villacana is in a good location for the beach and restaurants/bars. Definitely tot-friendly.

  • Sayani Family, October 2019

    This holiday was very stress free which allowed us to enjoy our holiday together as a family properly. The apartments and surrounding areas were beautiful and most importantly our little 2 year old had the best time!

  • Stevens Family, October 2019

    Brilliant holiday at Villacana. My son loved the play corner in the apartment and everything was as we wanted and more! His face lit up when we first entered the apartment and continued from there. The staff in the poolside bar were great with him and provided a good, friendly service for us throughout our stay. We would recommend the resort and would return.

  • Wallace Family, October 2019

    Kay, our Tots Playmaker, was the absolute best bit about the holiday! She had such a way with the kids and it was fantastic to have activities on site to interest our 3 year old in particular. It meant we were actually able to relax!

  • Dudley Family, October 2019

    Great little resort. All the equipment and toys we needed. Our boys loved the play sessions and play maker! The beach was 5 mins walk and there were 2 great pools.The apartment was great and breakfasts were popular with our sons!

  • Shah Family, October 2019

    Absolutely amazing.

  • Dannenberg Family, September 2019

    We had a wonderful family holiday with our 2 year old at Villacana. The complex is beautiful, particularly the gardens which are very well maintained. Kay, the Tots Playmaker, was lovely and really made an effort to create fun, toddler-friendly activities. The play dates on the beach and in the toddler area helped to keep our daughter entertained and was a lovely way for her (and us!) to socialise. The heated pool, sand pit and beach-front restaurant were also real plus points. Our only criticism is that we would have hoped for a shallow toddler pool. Also, our apartment was close to the pool bar which played extremely loud live music from 9pm a couple of nights a week. Thankfully it ended by 10:30, but it’s not what I would consider family friendly. All in all, a lovely, relaxed family holiday!

  • Higgins Family, September 2019

    We had a great holiday. Great to have the play sessions morning and afternoon, which was a great time for our two year old to make new friends. Kay, the Tots Playmaker, was fantastic and really engaged with all the wee ones, and parents too! Tots to Travel definitely took the stress out of holidaying with a toddler. Next time I won’t take as much stuff as will trust it’s all there.

  • Foster Family, September 2019

    The apartment was amazing, our 2 1/2 year old loved the toys, decoration and the space. The essential kit also allowed us to pack more helpful things like arm bands and floats for the pool. All in all we had a fabulous time.

  • Dundas Family, September 2019

    Lovely clean, big apartment with everything you could need. Toddler bundle of toys, cot etc. were fantastic and our wee one loved them. Pool and gardens were good and well maintained and the activities in the play parks were also fun and not overcrowded. Only issues we found were being on the 1st floor was not that handy with a buggy, could maybe try to accommodate tots to travel residents on the ground floor, and the food had no healthy options and a limited selection for children, e.g. chicken nuggets and chips, burger and chips etc. Breakfast was good though and would definitely recommend for a good holiday base with a toddler.

  • Board Family, September 2019

    The customer service from Tots to Travel and the resort staff was excellent. The essentials kit and play corner in the room were brilliant and really saved us packing loads of stuff from home. The daily sessions with the Playmaker were also really fun and engaging. I'd recommend Tots to Travel to anyone with a little one.

  • Barnes Family, September 2019

    Great playroom and toy selection, both children loved them especially the trike! The Tots play sessions were great and the play areas were fantastic.

  • Jones Family, September 2019

    Everything was very convenient - both inside the apartment and outside in the resort - but we weren’t as keen on the location. Being right next to the A7 meant you couldn’t really get anywhere without driving on it and we had a few scary moments with roundabouts and slip roads. You need to be a really confident driver to stay here I’d say. But didn’t detract from our holiday, we had a lovely time and would definitely use Tots to Travel again.

  • Curran Family, August 2019

    Villacana is a gorgeous place and we had an amazing 2 weeks there. The apartment was clean and well equipped, the gardens and pool area very well maintained. The breakfast was very good and the food in the Baobab beach bar excellent, with a fab menu and very friendly staff. The Tots Playmaker kept the children entertained (13,8,5 & 3) and were always happy to help with anything. The local town Cancelada is a beautiful traditional Spanish town with lovely restaurants although the walk to it (over a main road) is a shame but not the end of the world. I would highly recommend going to Estepona in the evening. There is a night market and a few kids rides. Only negatives are that a ground floor apartment would have been better for a family. Suggestions for improvement would be the addition of children's clothes hangers in the pack and beach towels to be different colours as it got very confusing with a family of 6! Also the hairdryer being fixed in the bathroom wasn't ideal. However overall as really amazing holiday!!!

  • Moore Family, August 2019

    We had an absolutely wonderful time and want to book to return next year. All the staff were so helpful and the hotel was sparklingly clean. In addition, the Tots playmakers were lovely

  • Mills Family, August 2019

    Fabulous child friendly resort. Spacious apartment with beautiful private courtyard and great pool facilities. Our 8 year old and 2 year old twins loved it!

  • Vasiliu Family, August 2019

    Fantastic holiday.

  • Shaw Family, August 2019

    We had an amazing holiday at Villacana. The pool and play area was perfect for our nearly 3 year old and the extras in the apartment really made life easier! I will definitely be booking again through Tots to Travel.

  • Young Family, August 2019

    Amazing resort with really helpful and friendly staff. The choice of pools was great and definitely enough to keep the little one entertained. Would highly recommend to anyone with young children.

  • Thomas Family, August 2019

    Fantastic week at the Villicana resort. Our 2 year old had a fantastic time and loved the pirate ship in the play area! The apartment was great and the play corner was a real hit. Everything we needed was in walking distance. The pool did get very busy, with lots of inflatables but this didn't detract from a really lovely week. The Tots to Travel play area was great, with some good things for our 2 year old to play with. Could do with a bit of a refurb but on the whole really good.

  • Emms Family, August 2019

    We have just returned from a fantastic 10 day stay in Villacana with our 4 year old and 2 year old. The resort is absolutely beautiful and matches, if not exceeds the expectations from the photos. The breakfast included was fantastic with lots of choice every day and is replenished continuously so choice remains good even towards the end of the time slot. The restaurant on site was beautiful with lots of choice, excellent quality food and outstanding staff. There was lots of entertainment options on site for both children and adults. Kay, the Tots Playmaker, was fantastic. Our children took to her immediately and thoroughly enjoyed all the activities she put on, especially the water fights! Lisa, the resort entertainment rep was also brilliant and we were able to access all the activities put on through her aswell. Nothing was too much trouble and their knowledge of the area was great. We hired a car which I would recommend as there was so much to do and see in the area. Estepona and Marbella Old Town are both worth a visit and very nearby. We also went to Bahia Park waterpark in Algeciras (about 45 min drive) which has a great area for younger children and you get discount entry after 3pm. We enjoyed ourselves so much we are already planning a return trip next year. Thank you for helping us have a fantastic holiday.

  • Nicholson Family, July 2019

    This was our first time using Tots to Travel and we had a wonderful holiday. The property exceeded our expectations and everything you could think of for the children was catered for and more! The resort was beautiful, very child friendly and the Tots to Travel play areas and activities were great. The staff on site were very welcoming and cheerful. I’d definitely recommend this resort for families and I’ll definitely be using Tots to Travel again.

  • McGuinness Family, July 2019

    I would definitely use Tots to Travel again, all the toys in the room and English TV made it easy to relax in the room while it was hot outside. We had the best family holiday! Thank you

  • Baker Family, July 2019

    The resort was lovely, just as we had hoped. Very beautiful and clean. Good food at the on-site restaurant and some lovely restaurants nearby. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The kids club was great and the Tots Playmaker was fantastic. One thing to note is that parents are supposed to stay with the children in kids club. Would definitely return in the future. Thanks!

  • Carroll Family, July 2019

    We travelled to Villacana with our two children age 2 and 4 in July 2019. The directions to the property included in the information pack were unclear and we had to use our phones to find the property. These should be improved. Upon arrival the receptionist was very friendly. Our room (2 bed apartment) was very spacious and very clean. Our children loved the toys provided. Our 2 year old is potty training so the potty and toilet seat provided were very useful. Our children also loved the tots play area and They loved Kay, the playmaker, who had lots of activities for them. They met other children here and made lots of friends. It’s useful to know there is no playmaker at the weekend.The swimming pool doesn’t have a shallow children’s pool but it was fine for our 4 year old who can swim. There are a few restaurants nearby but we liked having a car to get to Estepona and Puerto Banus, both close by.The beach isn’t the nicest as there are lots of stones but we enjoyed a few mornings there to build sandcastles.It would be good to maybe have a mini disco in the evenings.Overall it was a great holiday and we would return.

  • Whiffin Family, July 2019

    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.

  • 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.

  • Mallon Family, October 2019

    Super holiday for all the family yet again . Even my parents loved it. Quiet and off the beaten track but, only a 5-10 minute taxi ride into the lovely El duque .

  • Family stayed August 2019

    We had a lovely week at Villacana. Spent much of our time around the resort- the pool and kids activities were great. Kay who runs many of the Tots activities was great with the kids. They did clay modelling, face paints, slime making, etc. We ate in the on-site restaurant several times and the food was pretty good. A very easy walk to the beach which the kids loved. We didn’t hire a car but with hindsight that might have been a good idea as there isn’t much around other than the beach - though the resort does run some trips to nearby attractions (eg the water park). It would benefit from some early evening entertainment for kids eg mini disco, magic show, or similar. There is nightly entertainment in the restaurant but it tended to start quite late. The kids (3 and 5 yrs) also enjoyed the Tots play area which has a sand pit and lots of toys, and some shaded sun loungers for the grownups. All in all a nice relaxing week away, which is no mean feat with two kids in tow!

  • Mcgrath Family, August 2019

    Had a wonderful time on holiday with Tots to Travel. The essentials kit in the room provided everything we needed and was so helpful! Would highly recommend Tots to Travel and will definitely be using again.

  • O'Sullivan Family, July 2019

    Loved our holiday, having all the extras looked after meant it was so easy and stress free for us. We were delighted with all the toys, games and books to help keep them entertained, free WiFi and English kids TV meant even on tired afternoons we could keep them entertain while we got food ready.

  • Reid Family, July 2019

    We had a fantastic stay at Villacana. The accommodation was exactly as describe and much better than we imagined. The essentials kit was brilliant and included everything we needed and more for our stay. The Tots playzone next to the pool was a huge hit with our 19 month old. He especially loved the pirate ship.

  • Scott Family, June 2019

    The resort was perfect for our group. It was small and personal. All of the resort team were friendly and added a quality to our holiday. The only area of the experience that could have been better was the ability to have more scenic walks and a few more dining alternatives.

  • 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.
