Review: Hotel Victoria Playa, Menorca (2018)

Three years ago my husband, and our twin girls went on holiday with my step son and mother in law to Santo Tomas, Menorca. We booked an all inclusive holiday with Thomson, and stayed in the Victoria Playa Hotel. You can read my review from 2015 here. This year we decided to return as a family of four as we had fond memories of our last trip. Our flight was early which was great as it meant we arrived at our hotel around 11am and checked into our room straight away. Our room had two double beds in. We moved… [Read More]

Your Holiday Checklist

Going on holiday is an exciting time. It’s a time to relax, explore new places and make lasting memories. However, the run up to going on holiday can be stressful. The research and planning, making sure you’ve packed everything, booked everything and haven’t forgotten to do anything can all take its toll. As I’ve just returned from a weeks holiday in Menorca, I thought I’d put together a check list of holiday essentials. Luggage allowance – This is always a big thing for me. Before going anywhere I always check to see how much luggage allowance is each passenger is… [Read More]

Travelling Abroad with Twins

We’ve recently returned from a holiday abroad with our four year old twin girls. This was the third time that they’d been on an aeroplane, so they’re pretty used to flying now. The first time my husband and I took our girls abroad was in 2013 when they were just 18 months old. We went to Menorca and then returned again in 2015. This year we decided to go to Majorca for a change, although I have to say overall I think I prefer Menorca as the weather was definitely warmer! Travelling abroad with twins can be hard work, and… [Read More]

Family Friendly Package Holidays

Holidays pre-kids are great. You can go last minute. You don’t have to worry about packing as you can throw some dresses, shorts and sandals into a backpack and be on your way. Holidays post-kids however is a different story all together! Gone are the days of travelling light with just a backpack in tow. It was brilliant being able to hop off the plane and head straight out of the doors. There was no need to wait for suitcases to come off of the conveyor belt or last minute pit stops for the loo! We’d find the nearest bus… [Read More]

Hotel Victoria Playa, Menorca: Review

We’ve recently returned from a weeks all inclusive holiday in Menorca. When I say ‘we’ I mean my myself, husband, our three year old twin girls, my step-son and my mother-in-law. We went to Menorca two years ago with Thomson and although the hotel was lovely, there was no kids pool or parks for them and the beach was too far away.  When looking for a hotel this time around I wanted something that adhered to the following points: 1. Not hilly as my mother-in-law is 87 so hills are a no-no!  2. A beach within walking distance so that… [Read More]

Our Twins First Holiday

Family

Outside Cardiff Airport We have not long returned from our twins first holiday. We went to Menorca. Well, eight of us went! There was Twin Daddy and his three children (my step children), my mother-in-law, the twins and of course myself!  We were up at 6am and after we all had some breakfast, we did some last minute packing and decided to give the girls their lunch an hour early so they could have a decent nap before we left at 12.30pm.  The journey to the airport went well and we were there within half an hour of leaving.  I was really surprised… [Read More]
