"This was our 2nd (1st Skiing) with SPOH and it was as good as our first. The ski school was excellent my teenage boys went from non skier/snowboarder to doing red runs by day 3. Sandra and Daniela were brilliant, organising everything, looking after everybody and dealing with any little crisis. Great evenings spent eating, drinking and chatting with the other single parents made a huge contribution to my enjoyment of this holiday. Special thanks to Jacob for taking Jack (and other teenagers) out for a night out in Schladming. I wish I had found SPOH years ago so am making up for lost time and doing a 3rd holiday to Fuerteventura in August 2012!"− Teresa, Jack (16) & William (13) (Schladming winter sports holiday, April 2012)
"Had a fabulous time in Morocco, the hotel was very comfortable, food excellent, staff were very friendly and helpful. We did a mixture of pool and sea and beach. Plenty of activities for the teenagers including table tennis, water and beach volley ball and my son used the football pitch. We did 3 trips on offer, the camel ride, Agadir and the boat trip, all were good fun. I met the other parents at the airport and dined with them every night, 9 adults and 10 kids and we all got on really well together. Esther and Abdelaziz were wonderful hosts. Abdelaziz was available every day and accompanied us on all the trips, he also took us on a walk along the promenade one evening. Thanks SPOH, another fabulous experience."− Jane, Ryan (15) & Ceri (13) (Agadir holiday, July/August 2012)
"Great fun for the children and, by extension, the parents. Trustworthy, supportive and knowledgeable staff. Good value."− Ray & Tuilelaith (9) (Schladming winter sports holiday, April 2012)
"I read a review of this holiday company in The Times and risked my two week holiday budget on one week with SPOH. I certainly don’t regret it. With three children (11,9,6) to satisfy it was a tall order but you pulled it off! The activities were many and varied but there was no pressure to join in… something for everybody. Above all I feel like I had a break because the children were having such a fabulous time. Keep up the good work!"− Donna, Archie (11), Felix (9) & Nell (6) (Magredi holiday, July 2012)
"I booked the SPOH with some trepidation having never tried a group holiday before. I need not have worried as it turned out to be the best holiday I have ever been on as a single parent with my boys. All three of us had a superb time and we made new friends, which I hope we will keep for life. I am already looking at the SPOH website for next year."− Jane, Luke (15) Joe (13) (Kos, August 2013)
"Just to say a big thank you to Sandra, Daniela and Jacob. We had the most amazing week holiday. Skiing was great. Hotel was spot on and the other families were really great company. Also a really big thanks to Sandra for the couple of times when Neve was really struggling with her skiing!! Hope to see you again soon."− Kowkchee & Neve (13) (Schladming winter sports holiday, April 2012)
"I cannot recommend SPOH high enough!− Jane & Will (9) (Kos, August 2013)
The booking process is very smooth and after going on 3 SPOH holidays I know the hotel and support when there will be fantastic! My son and I have made great friends on each trip and Will has had a super time with children his age. Cannot wait to book for 2014!"
"My children have declared it the best ski holiday ever, despite have been on 9 previous ski trips! They are literally counting the days until next year."− Mindy, Anthony (10) & Bethany (9) (Schladming winter sports holiday, April 2012)
"We couldn’t have felt any more ‘looked after’. Sandra and Tennessee were efficient, thorough, discreet and fun to be with. Nothing was too much trouble and we really did have an absolutely fantastic holiday!"− Annelies, Alexandra (7) & Lucas (5) (Schladming winter sports holiday, April 2014)
"This was the best family holiday we've ever had. We've done regular package holidays in the past and while we've enjoyed them, I've found it lonely at times without adult company and the kids, particularly, have always been glad to get home. This time it was a huge wrench to leave for all of us. Our host, Thomas, and the hotel staff, Gelindo, Donatello and their team, could not do enough for us to make sure we had a really great time, both parents and children alike. I can't fault the service, the food, the activities or the warmth of the welcome in any way. There were so many special events put on just for our group, I can honestly say this week was the first time when being a single parent has felt a privilege. Our week was made extra special by the lovely group of like-minded people we were lucky to share our holiday with. If I had one concern before arriving, it was that I wouldn't get on with the other parents and would feel forced to have group fun! In fact the other holiday makers were fantastic company, the activities were relaxed with no obligation to join in and plenty of flexibility when we did. We also had time to relax by the pool and just enjoy our surroundings on the farm. − Claire, Joseph (14) & Harry (8) (Magredi holiday, July 2016)
The hotel setting, both locally and regionally was fabulous, with a trip to magical Venice a must. I would heartily recommend this holiday and wouldn't hesitate to book with SPOH again.
