Have a browse through our top picks of some of the best baby and toddler friendly hotels in Majorca – let me know if you know of any gems that I’ve not included!
1. Holiday Village ( Cala Millor) – 2 Toddler Splash Pools and a Balanceability course for learner cyclists!
The Holiday Village in Majorca in Majorca on the east side of Majorca was totally refurbished in 2013, and has loads of fantastic facilities for babies and toddlers.

Ice cream fans will love the self-service Mr Whippy machines and fridges packed with Cornettos and Mini Milks around the pool area!
There are larger Family Apartments which have space for a cot, and duplex rooms and swim up rooms with direct access to a shared pool. If your baby is small and has an early bedtime, it might be worth asking for a room in a quieter part of the hotel so you don’t get disturbed by the evening entertainment.
The beach at Cala Millor is made for sandcastle building and playing in the sea. It extends more than 2km and has a promenade ideal for walks with the buggy. The beach is a short (free) shuttle bus ride away from the hotel so you can spend lots of time there too.

There are Family Suites with a separate adult’s bedroom with sliding doors and a ‘Kids Den’ with 2 single beds.
