Villa La Estancia & Villa De Palmar Flamingo

Sorry, 1 more question, please ... just how far are the 2 resorts from each other? And, is it safe? We're bringing a nanny with us (who's only 20) and want to make sure that it would be safe for her to walk from VLE to VDP & back with our son.

Also, can anyone comment on what both resorts have to offer for preschoolers? Meaning, are there beach toys? Kid-friendly meals? A kid club of sorts? Games? Family-friendly DVD's?

The pkg we purchased includes dolphin swim. Does anyone know what are the age limitations for this, if any?

Thanks,

Annabel

I don't know about the toddler questions - but the resorts are right next door to each other, very close. Very easy walking on the beach or good sidewalks between the two lobbies. Enjoy! It is a beautiful resort!

We went to VLE with 2 18 year old girls and they spent every day next door and I felt it was very safe. You can access it by the beach but it is easier to take the pathway which drops you right into the pool area. Enjoy!

VDPF has a shallow entry pool, and activity desk with things to paint. Sometimes they have organized crafts (like making a frame from cardboard etc or making cookies). Be at the pool around 1pm on Tuesday as they bring the sea lion out for a show and kids of all ages stand in line for a kiss and a photo. really cute. My kids are 8 and 10 and we went to VDPF in April and they had a great time!
