Activities for kids
The kids club is open on weekends and during school holidays (mid June - end of August). It focuses on eco-friendly, fun activities for kids, and is included in the cost of your stay for children over 4 years old. You can book the kids club in advance or inquire at reception when you arrive.
The resort has its own vegetable garden that provides much of the fresh, organic food served at the hotel’s three restaurants. Children can accompany the chef to the garden to discover more where our food comes from and help pick the day’s vegetables, then move into the kitchen and learn the joys of preparing a meal with an experienced, friendly guide.
Children can visit the resort’s garden and see the goats and chickens that are raised there. They’ll learn about how food is grown, where eggs come from, and more.
The resort has bikes available, including bicycles with a baby seat. The forest around the eco resort is perfect to explore on two wheels, and the coast is only around 45 minutes away.
Beach day in El Masnou
El Masnou is a popular beachside town, and is only a short 25 minute drive away from the resort. There are plenty of small seaside restaurants, and the beach has fewer tourists than the crowded beaches in Barcelona city.

El Cau is a new play centre in Barcelona’s L’Eixample district. Designed exclusively for children, it’s a play paradise, created for enjoyment, fun and creativity. It’s an ideal place to go on a rainy day, or when the kids need to burn off some excess energy. Whether you live in Barcelona or are just visiting, El Cau is somewhere where the children are guaranteed to have fun and make friends, while parents can enjoy snacks, chats and spot of relaxation.The concept is similar to that of a gym, but instead of going there for exercise, kids go there to play. One part of the interior space is filled with toys, games, arts and crafts, whilst the other part has an innovative maze-like design with steps, ramps, toboggans and huts where children can run, climb, jump and hide. www.el-cau.cat
