Childcare Facilities

One of the reasons that Mark Warner are so popular with families is the level of child care offered at their resorts. There is always a high ratio of nannies to children (baby club 4 months to 11 months ratio is one nanny for two babies). English speaking nannies organise many activities to keep children happy — songs, stories, games on the beach and face painting for the younger children, while older children can learn to windsurf, snorkel or play volleyball.

It is advisable to pre-book your child care at the time of making your holiday booking to make sure that your children don't miss out. Mark Warner do operate a strict nanny to child ratio and child care/children's clubs are very popular.

Apart from the baby and toddler 1 clubs (where there is a higher ratio of nannies to children) all child care clubs are free. The cost for baby and toddler 1 clubs is £180.00 per child for 6 half days and £360 per child for full day care. Toddler 2 and Mini Club are included free for 6 half days (mornings or afternoons) however full day care is available at an additional cost of £180.00 per child per week.

Clubs operating times and number of days offered may vary depending on your transfer day and choice of resort.
