Let's talk family friendly holidays. We know how precious family time is, which is why we take care of everything and everyone. Our summer resorts are hand-picked not only for their stunning beach locations around Europe, but also the superb family facilities they offer; family rooms, parent kitchens, bright airy crèches with a multitude of activities to get stuck into and fully qualified, British nannies on hand to ensure everyone gets the holiday they want.
Providing an unforgettable holiday experience for parents and children with FREE childcare for those 2 to 17 years. For little ones from 4 months to 23 months there's a modest charge as our staff/baby ratio is high.
Free evening childcare from 7.30pm to 10.30pm ensures the fun continues well into the night.
Baby Club (4-11 months)
The Baby Club is a key element of our baby friendly holidays and provides a calm and comforting environment, just like home and operates on a ratio of one nanny to two babies. We have a "keyworker" system in place, ensuring where possible your child has the same nanny throughout the week.
Your child's dedicated keyworker will take over your baby’s routine throughout their stay in the crèche and provide you a full update at the end of each morning or afternoon session together with a completed keyworker sheet. All our Baby Clubs have a quiet sleeping area furnished with travel cots and clean linen. In addition, there is a kitchen facility equipped with microwave, sterilisers, kettle and fridge for parents use.

Toddler Club (1-2 years)
The Toddler Club is perfect for holidays with toddlers. Predominantly, this club is divided into two groups - Toddler 1’s for the 1 year olds where we strive to maintain a ratio of one nanny to every three children while Toddler 2's for the 2 year olds has a ratio of one nanny to every four children.
Each morning and afternoon session is tailored to include a good balance of outdoor and indoor play, ever mindful of the heat of the sun and energy levels of a toddler. Our Toddler Club is very well stocked with a superb range of toys to keep the most active of toddler occupied and stimulated and a morning or afternoon session usually consists of 2 outdoor and 2 indoor activities.

Kidz Club (10-13 years)
The Kidz Club is a slightly more independent club giving children of this age range the chance to pick and choose which supervised activities they wish to join.

Indy Club (14-17 years)
With a Mark Warner holiday, children and adults of all ages have plenty to keep them entertained - even teenagers, thanks to our specially devised Indy Club, dedicated to 14 to 17 year olds.
It's not always easy to convince teenagers to join a family getaway, but with the Mark Warner Indy Club, they can be surrounded by a mixed group of youngsters their own age, taking part in fun activities, socialising and keeping active.
Up to 20 youngsters will be supervised by one of our enthusiastic activity leaders, who will help to create a range of fun activities and games. With entertainment from fancy dress parties to waterpolo, your teen will be sure to enjoy getting involved, or they are free to put forward their own activity suggestions - this is, after all, their club!
“The leaders are chilled and cool but still put on fun activities which meant that the days weren’t boring.” Chloe, 16
Teens also have the freedom to come and go as they please, so if an activity isn't up their street, they can enjoy a rest by the poolside or beach, or spend the day with their family. We like to help them feel like the young adults they are by giving them the freedom to make their own choices throughout their holiday.
“The people are so nice, the instructors and staff are really friendly, the activities are really fun and you can do whatever you feel like.” Sophie, 15
A typical day will start after breakfast, around 9 – 9.30am, with activities through until lunch, which they can choose to take with their new friends or with their family. Then more activities will take place all afternoon with a break before dinner. After the evening meal, fun activities continue through until 10.30pm, meaning your teen can stay active with their new friends all day if they choose.
“It was just a great experience and somewhere I was able to make memories for life.” Ellie, 16
Far from feeling like a ‘forced’ family holiday, many of the young adults that take part in our Indy Club leave our resorts with a new range of fun skills, a wonderful set of new friends and an enthusiastic, positive view of their holiday.
Out of those surveyed, 100% of teens found it easy to make friends at our resorts, with 88% still in touch with their friends after the holiday.
“At the beginning of each holiday I was a bit nervous about having to meet new people, and wondered if I would find it easy to talk to them and make new friends. But the Indy Club leaders helped to break the ice and from then on I had a wonderful time, every time.” Patrick, 16
Indy activities for all
Whatever your teen’s favourite hobbies or interests, there's likely to be an activity for them on a Mark Warner holiday.
Fitness fans - We specialise in activity holidays, so there's a wealth of options to suit an active teen. From mountain biking to windsurfing and sailing, there will be plenty to keep them entertained and happy at any of our resorts.
Wildlife lovers - Does your teenager love animals and nature? Our scuba diving courses are the perfect way to get them fully trained for exploring the seas around them, so that they can start searching for wild and wonderful creatures of the deep themselves.
Sports enthusiasts - With our specially designed timetable of activities, there's plenty to keep competitive sports fans moving too. The Indy Club will organise a range of sports activities each week, such as volleyball, pool or football matches, and we also pride ourselves on our fantastic tennis facilities, with all skill levels catered for.
Sun worshippers - All of our resorts are situated next to beaches and offer at least one pool, so there are plenty of areas for soaking up the sun. If your teen loves to lounge and top up their tan while on holiday, there are plenty of great spots at any one of our resorts.
Night owls - The Indy Club runs from dinner right through until 10.30pm, with plenty of specially tailored evening entertainment, such as quizzes or evening sporting activities, so youngsters will be kept happy and entertained all evening long.
“Great leaders, great activities.” Cianan, 17
