Club MAC Holiday Tips

We’re all about the family at Club MAC, whether that’s toddlers, teenagers or tiny babies. To make it easy for parents, we’ve got lots of help on hand for people travelling with babies. We know it can make travel stressful, but rest assured that when you reach Club MAC Alcudia, everything you need is easily available.

We want everyone in the family to have a relaxing break when they come on holiday to Club MAC. To make grabbing baby supplies super simple, we have a shop on site. It’s stocked to the brim with nappies, formula milk, baby bottles, nappy cream, talcum powder, baby oil, baby soap and shampoo, dummies, baby wipes, sponges, juices, non-spill cups and swimming nappies. If you want fresh milk we can do that too – we have Cravendale imported from the UK also in the shop.

Hiring pushchairs

We work with a local company so that you can hire baby equipment ranging from pushchairs to steam sterilisers. Club MAC really is a home from home, with everything you need to have a comfortable stay with your baby. Prices can be found online, and you just need to pop along to reception and tell us what you need. We’ll organise for it to be brought to the hotel within three hours during the day only.

Baby food facilities

Each restaurant has a microwave, and you can request UHT milk as well. There are also microwaves in the hallway at the Marte and Jupiter buildings. Our Premium rooms and family suites have a fridge and kettle as part of their facilities, but Standard rooms don’t so that’s worth taking into account when you’re booking. Similarly, it’s worth knowing that Premium rooms only have showers, not baths.

For 2017, we’ll be serving baby purees in some of our restaurants. We’ll have all sorts of flavours on offer, from lamb and vegetables to turkey with carrot and rice. Ask our restaurant staff for a rota of dishes available.

Spanish names for baby products

It’s easy to get hold of the same brands in Spain that you buy in the UK but they do have different names. Aptamil baby formula is known in Spain as Milupa Aptamil, for example.

Cow&Gate is known as Almiron and is available in Spanish chemists. Please note that you can’t buy Heinz or SMA baby formula in Majorca, but you can buy Baby Bio, Hero, Nestle Nidina or Puleva. Brands of baby food commonly found in Spain include Nestle, Nutriben, Hero and Hipp. The purees generally come in four main flavours: tenera (beef), pollo (chicken), jamon (ham) and pescado (fish).

Nappies are called panales and Huggies remains the same as a brand name. Pampers, however, are called Dodots. As well as those available in our onsite shop, you can find everything in any Spanish supermarket. We have a few supermarkets in walking distance from Club MAC, including Eroski, Lidl, Spar and a local chemist. They’re all open on Sundays too, so you’ll never have to worry about not having everything you need for you and your baby to have the perfect holiday.
