Kids' Center*

Palmaia's Waldorf-style kids' center is open every day from 9am-6pm for kids starting at 3 years old to participate in a device-free, children’s activities program, with natural stimuli that allows them to connect with their true nature.

All childcare professionals are qualified personnel who seek to create an environment that draws avant-garde thinking, giving children opportunities to explore and nurture their senses creatively and naturally, with activities such as bread making, sculpture, treasure hunts, and more. We are committed to the development of self-knowledge, working through their will, and always focusing on their well-being.

Any child who is not potty trained must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Sandos Playacar also has a kids center available at no extra charge.

*Included in your stay

Babysitting Services

Private babysitting services are offered from 9am-6pm every day for $25/child/hour. Childcare required after 6pm is available based on availability; we highly encourage you to arrange any after-hours babysitting with the resort ahead of time to have a higher chance of securing care.
