Best value

Ja Jebel Ali Resort, Dubai.  Guaranteed sun and an excellent kids club run by Worldwide Kids Company, who are at the cutting edge of providing kids clubs and creches. They offer great value simple beach breaks with plenty of lovely shopping malls to stroll around while your little one naps.

Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel, Tenerife. Popular with young families because of its free kids club which takes babies from 10 months, leaving you free to soak up some rays and admire the ocean views.

Mid end

Almyra Hotel, Cyprus  This is the perfect hotel for those wishing to travel light (well as light as you can). They supply everything babies may need and send a list prior to travel so you can place your order for everything from nappies to prams. The concept is called Baby Go Lightly and it is exceptional.  (Babylists is mentally packing extra pairs of shoes).

Domes of Elounda, Spinalonga, Crete.  Domes of Elounda is a lovely property and often exceptional value. They work with Worldwide Kids Company for their Creche too so you are guaranteed a great service level.

Top end
