Surely someone has been?? Mousses are offering a really great deal for kids. I know they're new but there had to be a MNetter out there who knows?? Watching with interest!

Ah Beety, fancy going in early July? We've got one on hold for two weeks from the 4th! (Although I'll have to buy a better bikini or face your scorn!). Anyway, if you book via babygoes2 you get an even better deal - kids go for £99 and free kids club place for each week up to week beginning July 4. Ended up speaking to someone from babygoes2 who had just been. She said it is lovely - the owners couldn't be sweeter and keep giving kids free ice creams and parents free wine; they do a fabulous barbecue once a week but might be doing it more often; the pool bar is open in the evenings so you can put the kids to bed and then sit out with your baby alarm and a glass of something cold; the mini market is just a few minutes walk away; villas are good; beach is ten minutes away and has the clearest blue sea she has seen in Europe (although fine shingle and a bit windy at times); rep is great too as he has a two and a half year old so is very aware of parents' needs (that'll be a large bottle of blue label then) and they even have english kids' tv on the satellite channel for when it all gets too much... Only downside is that villas open on to the pool, so might be a bit stressful for parents with young toddlers or crawlers. - although there are plans to fence the pool in. Babygoes2 offer might be being extended, so am holding out to see what happens.

Just realised that a friend is at Kamarina - will be back next week, so will report back on that too!

I really should be on commission for simply travel - i think I am going to have to apply for a job at this rate

Willow2 I see the £99 deal on SimplyTravel too though without childcare. What price is it for adults through Bgoes2?

you don't even have to go through babygoes2 - you just call simply and quote the babygoes 2 offer

Just booked a week at Mousses from 6 June so I will let you know what its like when we get back. Willow2 thanks for the hint about the Babygoes2 offer - we saved the cost of childcare for a week, which makes it a really great deal.

have a brilliant time - imagine we will have booked before then, so fingers crossed that you like it enough to recommend it!

we were hoping to go the week after, but now looks like it will be July - shame we weren't more co-ordinated; we could have had a Lefkas meetup! (Not sure what dh would think about that - thinks I spend enough time on Mumsnet as it is)

Thanks all. Promise I will report back. SereneQueen - the added attraction of a creche place that we haven't paid for was just too much. I know full well she may refuse to even set foot in the door, but if I haven't paid for it I don't care!

Forgot to add, go to babygoes2 and register that you've booked a holiday quoting their offer and you will get some freebies.

janinlondon - hope you have a nice time this week as have just booked for July 4.

Karmarina update - friend has just come back, said resort was good but childcare for young ones was awful.
