If your toddler is anything like two of mine, he or she won’t be interested in heading to the kids’ club. My daughter and youngest son would never leave my side on holidays but my other two loved the clubs. So if you’re looking for a little rest and relaxation for your next holiday here are 5 holidays that will look after your little ones while you have a little lie by the pool, book a spa treatment or even head out for a spot of shopping, golf or maybe something a little more active like hiking, cycling or even a spot of diving…
Here we have a small selection of really different toddler-friendly holiday ideas all offering kids clubs (for more ideas head over to our kids club collection on our website). Remember that all Holidays on Holiday Tots are booked directly with the resort/ owner offering you peace of mind and price guarantee. Some even offer a little extra for Holiday Tots families, like the family friendly hotels in Wiltshire where you will get a complimentary afternoon tea for a family of 4.
