Calling all Tiny Tots: pre-school escapes to the Marbella Club

Spring is soon to be sprung, and it’s getting everyone in the mood for a getaway. Worn out parents in need of some TLC? Want to miss the madness of the Easter holidays and benefit from shoulder season prices? Andalucía’s timeless beachfront resort, the Marbella Club, has the perfect remedy for the mid-season blues. Launching this month, the all-new ‘Tiny Tots Programme’ is designed specifically for families with children below the age of five, not yet limited to the restrictions of school holidays.

No need to pay extra baggage for baby essentials (EasyJet and Ryanair we’re looking at you!) because the Marbella Club is including a rather snazzy ‘Travelling with Tots’ arrival kit (hello Moses baskets, cots, playpens, black-out blinds and even baby bath mats!) Fussy baby? No problem – specific nappies and baby milk can also be pre-ordered. Win!

Once there, children will feel pampered with heaps of welcome goodies (including a personalized hooded bath towel amongst other things) – we won’t spoil the surprise! Tech wizzes can make use of the complimentary Tick Tock Turtle Clocks which help kids wake up in the best part of their sleep cycle. Little ones can fill their days with visits to the 5,000sqm Kids Club (yup, it’s big!), discover exotic flowers and wildlife in the resort’s gardens or feel extra sensual in the Ultimate Marbella Club Tots Sensory Trail. Each child will also be treated to a complimentary Hartbeeps or Babybeeps sensory-based activity and delicious healthy lunches suggested by the Marbella Club’s resident nutritionist. Yum!

Whilst children are preoccupied at the Kids Club, parents can saunter down to the sea-facing Thalassotherapy spa, where they have free access to enjoy its facilities with no crying babies or toddlers in sight. With two hours of inclusive babysitting and night nannies, parents can also take advantage of some of the undeniable benefits of adults-only holidays. Go out and explore the cultural offerings of Anadalucía or kick back with a cocktail and fly and flop (we know which option we’d choose, margarita please!)

With the children finally worn out from a day of activities, families can return to their private villa or as we like to call it, our dream home-from-home. The 2-bedroom Andalucían-style properties have all the essentials and more, containing fully-equipped modern kitchens and ultra-luxurious bedrooms. When can we move in?  Shall we cancel the flight home?
