Toddler-friendly Holidays

Whether it's paddling in the pool, playing in the sand or maybe even trying their first ice-cream, holidays with toddlers are filled with memorable moments, and not being tied to school holidays means you can be much more flexible in terms of when and where you go.

Although things might not be plain sailing the whole way through (a tantrum or two is usually inevitable), our toddler-friendly holidays feature hotels specially picked for their family-focused attitudes, brilliant kids’ clubs and handy extras.

Then there are the usual Sovereign touches to make sure your toddler-in-tow holiday is as hassle free as possible, like airport lounge access (say goodbye to long waits in noisy, busy terminals) and private transfers to whisk you straight to your hotel when you arrive.

  • Our toddler-friendly hotels are handpicked and personally visited by parents in the team
  • Your Trusted Adviser can help you with room and flight options to suit your family
  • Ask us about kids' club bookings, dining options, and extras like crayons and potties

Sovereign's Family Recommendation

Princesa Yaiza Suite Hotel Resort

A pioneer in family hotels, this hotel has been well designed to cater for families of all ages. Children will love the exciting kids' club while adults can relax in the spa.

We can advise you on flying with toddlers - for example, some airlines will allow you to take up to two things free of charge, so your pushchair, car or booster seat don't need to be included in your allowance.

Some of the hotels will offer equipment for your toddler such as a step for the bathroom - the Royal Kiko Suites at the Princesa Yaiza are perfect for this - I particularly like that the mini bar has yoghurts and children's drinks.

Expert advice

There’s plenty to think about when you’re planning a trip with a toddler, and that’s why we have a dedicated team of Family Trusted Advisers on hand to find you the perfect holiday for your family. Not only do they know our hotels and destinations inside out, but most of them are parents who’ve travelled with toddlers themselves – so you’ll be getting honest and helpful advice from someone who really knows what they’re talking about.

Your Trusted Adviser will be available for you from the moment you first get in touch until after you’ve returned home from your holiday. They can completely personalise your holiday for you, from arranging a particular room type at your hotel and booking babysitting or kids’ club sessions, to making restaurant reservations and recommending family-friendly activities in your destination.
