Antonia looked after our daughter (age 4) and son (age five months) during our recent trip Tenerife and was fantastic with them both. She kept them both entertained and happy and gave us complete peace of mind and a break! We would thoroughly recommend Antonia and Mini Amigos.

I found mini amigos online by searching for childcare in Tenerife. Leaving our daughter with a stranger was obviously a bit daunting but I felt comfortable having read other parents comments. I didn’t need to worry, Jill was brilliant at communicating and following our daughters routine, our daughter was clearly very comfortable and happy in Jill’s care. If you are not sure, go for it, it was our best time as a family since our daughter was born, we felt like we actually had time to relax and enjoy ourselves but also enjoy real quality time together as a family. Thank you Jill, we will be back ?

Thank you so much for making our sons holiday enjoyable! Antonia was fabulous with our 10 month old son from day one. She took him out, played with him, fed him well and tired him out so he slept through the night and looked forward to seeing her every day. I wish we we could take Antonia home with us! We will definitely use again when we're back!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Jill and her team. From first point of contact, we were struck by how organised Jill was she shared her local knowledge with us details and information on the surrounding areas. In addition she also clearly laid out her availability and prior commitments and on the morning she was not able to join us another member of her team Madeline came an entertained out children Madeline bought bread to feed the ducks and age appropriate toys in order to keep the children entertained. Jill is kind, patient and loving, she is skilled with young children. We have Two young children ages 18 months and 34 months. We felt our children were in safe hands nurtured and well cared for, they looked forward to seeing Jill for a “play date“ in the mornings and in the evenings she came to take care of them. We have had the benefit of Jill’s help on two separate trips to Tenerife and both times the care received was first class. Having Jills help certainly meant that we where able to have a restful and enjoyable holiday. We look forward to our return trip to Tenerife and plan on using mini amigos again.

Our daughter had a great time with Sharon while we got a much needed break! Our daughter was really happy with Sharon and Sharon kept us updated with what they were up to. I'd definitely recommend Mini Amigos to anyone looking for day or nighttime babysitting whilst on holiday.

We’ve just returned from our family holiday to Gran Melia in Tenerife and just wanted to say how wonderful Jill and Carol were. They both babysat in the evenings for our 14 month old daughter and we felt she was in great hands. Jill was extremely helpful and reassuring before we even met and during our stay, was in regular contact. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Mini Amigos to others and will be using them on a future trip ourselves. Thanks Hannah

I first met Jill on holiday at the Baobab Suites this March while in their Kids Club. I was with my 2.5 yr old and Jill was looking after a little boy of a similar age. I was really impressed with how she played and interacted with him and with how at ease he was in her company. I started to think how lovely it would be to be able to have someone look after my little girl for a few hours everyday so that I could have some proper time to relax whilst knowing that she was occupied and happy. I got chatting with the little boys parents over the course of the holiday and they were really happy to be using Mini Amigos. In October we returned to the same Hotel and this time I booked Jill in advance to look after our little one and also at times our 12 year old too. We had a selection of morning, afternoon and evening sessions, Jill was flexible and our girls had fun with her. It made a huge difference to our holiday as we were able to relax, read books, have adult meals out and spend quality time alone with just our 12 year old. It worked out really well for us as a family.

We would like to give our feedback regarding Elizabeth, a very kind scottish women who did a great babysitting job with our children Maximilian and Samuel. We booked Elizabeth almost for a week to be able to sped a little bit time as a couple during our holidays. We have two boys who have a lot of energy and without Elizabeth we wouldn’t have the opportunity to have also our relaxing moments. She is a really great and warm person, was every time very punctual and flexible. The kids loved her and they didn’t have any problems to go to bed with her as we wanted to have a couple dinner. Usually our kids are not allowing another person to bring him to bed but with Elizabeth they didn’t have any issues. Also at the kids club where she stayed with both a couple of times they were also very happy with here. We warmly recommend her and would book her again any time.

Antonia looked after our 18 month old son Alex for 2.5 hours every morning and afternoon (and one evening). Made for a much needed break for us and Alex took to her very quickly, by the end of the week putting his arms out for her. She took him to the pool, soft play and mini club, and gave him such a fun time, he thrived on it all and loved his holiday. I’m so pleased I found mini amigos and Antonia.

We have just spent a fabulous week with Antonia from Mini Amigos helping to look after our two munchkins (aged 22 months and 5 months). Antonia was an absolute pleasure to have around and cared for our children as though they were our own. Nothing was too much trouble and she happily assisted us with potty training our toddler and weaning our baby. With her help we were able to do things like brave Siam water park as a family and take the children out individually so they both had one on one time with me and my husband. I cannot recommend Antonia enough and heartily wish to thank her for all her help. We will certainly be in touch if we come to Tenerife again!

I would highly recommend Mini Amigos for a nanny service in Tenerife, I wish all holiday destinations had Mini Amigos, to make the process so easy. Booking and organising was professional and our nanny Sharon was caring towards our 2 boys ages 5 and 1. Sharon would happily go along with what the boys wanted to do. This allowed my husband and I to enjoy the adults side of the hotel and few nights out. When we return to Tenerife I have no doubt we will use this service again.
Thank you for much for taking the time to write this lovely review. It was a pleasure to help you and we hope to see you again in the future. Best regards Jill

We have just got back from our first trip to Tenerife and cannot thank Jill enough for her contribution to making our trip so special. We have finally managed to come home from a holiday feeling like we had a holiday! Jill took care of our 3 and 5 year old on a few days as well as accompaning us to Siam Park so my husband and I could ride the flumes whilst the boys enjoyed the kids areas with Jill. She also babysitted for us. From the first contact through to meeting the boys to the final goodbye we were just so impressed. Jill was very capable and professional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and her team to everyone. We are looking forward to returning and seeing her again and I know our boys will be too.

We had a lovely babysitter, Faye, we immediately made friends with our two girls. She took them to Siam Park for the day and they had a marvellous time.

Not having used a babysitter previously for our 21 month old in the UK we were it’s fair to say a tad nervous about the prospect of someone else looking after our daughter whilst abroad. Glad to report that we can wholeheartedly recommend Mini Amigos as the most fantastic service. The reassurance received from the initial phone call and the high standards and professionalism throughout were exceptional. Jill who looked after our daughter could not have been more friendly, flexible to our needs, experienced and quickly relieved any fears we might have held. It was so nice to have the same person every night and allowed us some lovely evenings together and to make the most of the evenings rather than being stuck inside a hotel room. Can’t endorse Mini Amigos enough and will be sure to use again if we come back to Tenerife.

Thank you again to the wonderful Mini Amigos! We used this fantastic babysitting service last year and were so impressed that we booked them again this year when we returned for a weeks holiday in Tenerife. It was great to meet lovely Jill and we felt very lucky to have her looking after our toddler, Lily. We felt very happy and confident leaving Lily and knew she was in very safe hands. Despite waking up a few times, Jill got her back to sleep without any dramas! We would recommend Mini Amigos whole heartedly to anyone looking for a professional, friendly and highly experienced babysitting service. Last year we had Sharron - she was great too - and it was lovely to see her again on our last evening. Can’t recommend them enough! Thank you Jill and Sharron.

We spent a week in Tenerife at the end of February. It was our first holiday abroad with our 9 month old daughter and we asked Jill to look after her for two mornings and three evenings. Jill was fantastic and our daughter took to her straight away, very much enjoying her two mornings in the Baobab Suites Kids Club whilst my husband and I had a few relaxing hours to ourselves. Having seen Jill’s interaction with our daughter during the day, we were very happy to leave Lily with her during the evening and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings out. It was very easy to get in touch with Jill and when our holiday didn’t quite end as planned due to a nasty stomach bug and we had to cancel our final evening’s babysitting at short notice, Jill was supportive and concerned, and checked how we were feeling once we had returned to the UK. Should we go back to Tenerife, we will definitely be getting in touch with Jill again, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for childcare on Tenerife.
Thank you so much Georgina for this lovely review. It is much appreciated. Hope to see you all again next year for sure. Love to Lily ?

We had a wonderful experience with Jill from Mini Amigos while our stay at Gran Melia Hotel in Tenerife. Our 2-year-old son long after she left was asking for her and also repeating 'cheeky-monkey' as Jill called him:) We are also extremely grateful for her flexibility - we asked her to take care of our son with very short notice. She agreed although she had to rearrange her own plans. Thank you!

Jill looked after our two girls (aged 2, and 4 months) for a few hours on most days of our stay in Tenerife, and it absolutely made our holiday. We had a mix of mornings and afternoons to ourselves, and even a couple of evenings out without a push-chair: a rare treat! For the kids - Jill was great with our girls; we always felt they were in good hands, and the eldest seemed to have enjoyed lots of different activities: she is still talking about it a week later! Jill covered play-times, nap-times and some evenings for us and always seemed to have it all running smoothly. This was way more than "just" a baby-sitting service: Jill made a real effort to get to know the girls, play with them, make sure they had their naps etc.; she even brought them a bag of toys and books for their stay which was very thoughtful, and really helpful as we hadn't flown out with all that much. Really happy with the quality and attention that went into looking after the little ones. They had a great time. For the parents - Jill was so helpful from the outset, even giving us hotel and restaurant recommendations to help plan the holiday. Once we got to Tenerife, Jill was great at communicating, flexible with days & times and always in touch when need be to tell us how the kids were getting on - a perfect score for making life as easy as possible for us during our stay: we really felt we had the best care possible for the girls, and the most flexible service we could have asked for on our part. I absolutely would not hesitate to recommend Jill and her team to anyone visiting Tenerife - it really made our holiday (to the point where we'd probably pick Tenerife over other short-haul destinations!). Thanks so much for your help.

We were recommended by friends to contact Jill on our first visit to Tenerife. We wanted a babysitter to ensure some relaxing baby-free evenings and we were honoured to have Jill sit for us herself. She was efficient and professional in her emails and I was surprised and very impressed to receive all her qualifications and accreditations in advance of our booking. She was absolutely lovely when we met her and was kind enough to lend us a baby monitor which we really appreciated. She sent regular messages on the (thankfully) sleeping babies throughout the evening which allowed us to relax and enjoy our dinner. We would definitely use again and would recommend to others.

Well where do Start....From the 1st moment of contact, Jill was prompt, professional and reassuring. We stayed at Bahia del Duque and wanted some adult only time in the days and evenings. Originally we only booked a few hours a day as we didn't know how our daughter would take to a nanny. We had an amazing lady called Sharron, and our daughter loved her immediately. She even cried at the end of each day when she had to go home. We ended up having Sharron all day and most evenings, and we feel we have met friends for life with both Jill and Sharon. I would highly highly recommend this company and would never use anyone else. Super professional and all questions 0answered before we even asked! This company is of an extremely high standard and it certainly shows. All sharrons documents were sent to us with our booking email without us even asking. I cannot thank you enough and we can't wait to see you again in a few months when we return, then year after year. Ps: Isabella keeps crying for you Sharron ?.

We've just come back from a stay at the Abama and i couldn't recommend Jill and her team enough! With two little ones, we wanted a couple of "grown-up" dinners and Jill and Sharron both babysat for us. I instantly knew we were in good hands, and felt very comfortable leaving my 2 year old and 7 month old baby with them. We get texts during the evening to let us know that everything was ok, and it meant that my husband and I could really relax knowing the kids were fast asleep! Jill is very warm and caring, i also met her in the kids club and saw how affectionally she was looking after two of her charge...next time i wouldn't hesitate to leave my kids with her during the day as well! Thanks for making our trip extra relaxing. PS i also needed some more nappies during our stay which Jill kindly arranged - again, one less thing to have to think about!

We got in touch with Jill following recommendations from friends who had previously used her services at the Abama and she did not disappoint! From the initial enquiry we made, Jill was charming, helpful and very quick at responding. She helped give us advice and information about the hotel and was able to secure us dates for a babysitter straight away. She even arrange to buy nappies and wipes for us and have them delivered to the hotel the day of arrival! Our babysitter Sharron, was wonderful and came to meet us and our 2 year old son within a few hours of us arriving at the hotel, we instantly felt comfortable with her an so did our son. Sharron babysat most evening for us and although our son didn't wake up, it was very important for me to feel comfortable leaving him with someone who I trusted would look after him. She is a kind and caring nanny and I honestly cannot thank her enough for her help while we were on holiday which allowed my husband and I some time to relax! The thought of leaving your children while on holiday is a scary one and can be very hard for people to do but I really cannot recommend mini amigos enough. We had a great time at the Abama and we will definitely be using Jill and her team again!

My family and I attended a ten year family reunion in Tenerife this past August and we used Mini Amigos Childcare for our week long stay. We could not be more pleased with the service! My sister and I have three children each of various ages, and we hired several nannies from Amigos Childcare who went above and beyond to cover everything we needed. Nanny Sharon was native english spoken and was flexible, understanding, and overall just AMAZING with our kids. They took them on walks at the property, to the kids club, for lunch at nearby restaurants, and handled nap time, allowing us the time we needed to connect with our adult family members and catch up. I highly recommend Mini Amigos to anyone looking for trustworthy, dependable and activity filled childcare while in Tenerife.

Thank you for the wonderful Sharron who had my 3 year-old smitten within minutes. He usually moans when the babysitter arrives but just said 'OK' when we said we were going out. Sharron looked after our 3 month old two afternoons and both children for two evenings. So capable and reliable - arriving early and sending us updates for reassurance. We were so confident in her experience that we left the Resort the second evening for a long walk near the beach. Mini Amigos also changed things around so we could have Sharron for all babysitting to help our children with continuity -much appreciated and no reservations in recommending them!

A great service from Jill and the team. Both babysitters we had during our stay at the Ritz Carlton were fantastic. The children were instantly at ease with Sue.

Jill and Laura completely made our holiday which would never have been so relaxing without their expert, accommodating and easy-going Service. Our daughter has become a bit shy of strangers but took to both Jill and Laura almost immediately and seemed to have the best week with them. They were enthusiastic and quick to understand (not getting things wrong or asking millions of questions) so that the transfer was incredibly smooth and easy. They were also always fun and kind with our daughter. I felt 100% relaxed in handing our 17 month old over to their care and was so impressed that Jill even brought age suitable toys over for savannah to play with. Mini amigos even supplied nappies so we didn’t have to bring boxes over. A perfect service, well done!

We stayed at the Abama for a week in half term with our 3 year old son. Both Jill and Laura were amazing with him - Laura babysat for us in the evenings and Jill looked after him in the daytime a few times also. He can be very shy with new people but he warmed to both Laura and Jill very quickly and always seemed to have had a fun morning with Jill, giving us some much needed rest time! Both Jill and Laura brought him toys and books to play with and read which I thought was really thoughtful and definitely helped him to settle with them.

We spent half term in abama, Tenerife with our 3 and 5 year old. As our youngest is not old enough to be left at the kids club we used Amanda from Miniamigos to help us out. Amanda is British (a very lovely northern lady!!) - she is great fun, polite, was on time - in fact early and ready to go each time. She arrived (sometimes at the room or pool/ restaurants) with a bag of puzzles and was well prepared for the afternoon. We ended up asking Amanda to look after our children a few times and in the evening managed to have a couple of date nights. She kept me informed on WhatsApp with how they were doing and sent a few photos of all their adventures at the end of the week. We highly rate Amanda - the children loved her. She made our holiday even more relaxing knowing they were safe and having fun. Liz and iain’

I've been to tenerife many times over the years , tho this was the first as a mum to a 5mth old. Jill from Mini Amigos has been a star she arranged baby equipment such as a cot , portable high chair , and variety of toys and books as well as nappies and baby wipes all delivered to our apartment. Thus making our holiday home from home. Very important with a baby and of course saved draining our luggage allowance with baby stuff. Her company Mini Amigos also offers childcare /babysitting and all her girls are qualified nannies who have dbs & first aid so you can rest assured that your child/ren will be well looked after This meant her dad and I could go out for a meal and drinks and relax knowing our baby daughter was safe and well looked after - who also adored Jill and smiled every time she saw her I have no hesitation in recommending Jill and I'm sure everyone of her team is just as caring and professional as Jill was. We are coming back in May and will be using the services of mini amigos again

Jill was very helpful and organised, and both Laura and Jill were lovely. We didn't need any daytime babysitting on this trip but I would have felt very happy leaving our daughter with Jill or Laura during the day. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend!

We booked Jill and then through Jill, Sharon, to look after our 2.5 year old, May, in the evenings. Admittedly May was asleep but both Jill and Sharon made us feel very comfortable about the prospect of her waking up - we knew she'd be in very safe and experienced hands. Both sitters arrived promptly each night and as our main contact, Jill went out of her way to go above and beyond - even picking up an unusual ingredient for us before we'd arrived. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jill or Sharon to anyone looking for peace of mind whilst having 'me' / 'couple' time on their holiday. Thanks both of you!

So if you've got as far as reading these reviews then you must be contemplating getting some help with your kids while you're on holiday. Please do it!! Yes, it's a luxury but wow it was amazing. Jill was unbelievable with our little boy (Dylan was almost 2) and he adored her from day 1. Nothing was too much trouble and she mixed things up to keep him entertained. My husband and I had a couple of hours each day to spend just the two of us and made it a proper holiday for us too. I can't thank Jill enough for giving us the relaxing, worry free break that we needed. She helped us by buying nappies for us so we didn't have to lug them in the suitcase or go shopping as soon as we arrived. She also babysat for us in the evenings so we could unwind without worrying if he was going to wake up in his buggy in the middle of dinner. We had a fantastic holiday and Jill helped make that possible. I would obviously highly recommend her and judging by her standards I'm sure the rest of her team are excellent.
Thank you so much Victoria, see you next year hopefully x

This is a review from a different perspective as I am a nanny too and lived in Tenerife foe 6.5 years. From the first year I was working alongside Jill on a regular basis and she really is amazing!! Nothing is ever too much for Jill. She is a fantastic team leader and it was a great pleasure to work with her for the years I was on the island. It is clear from the get go the passion and enthusiasm she has working with children and she is confident in every situation and the children just adore her. As a result, Jill has families returning year after year and book her way in advance so they make sure she has availability. So, if you are looking for 5*+++ childcare in Tenerife.... you have found them!!! They will even go show shopping for you so you don't have to bring so much with you when you travel!!! Now there's an unbeatable service!!!!! Highly, highly recommended!!
Wow thank you Lisa. What lovely words ... it was a pleasure working for you and miss you lots xx

I would like to thank mini amigos for their service. My husband and I had a lovely evening knowing my children were being looked after by the lovely Laura she was very profesional and she came with lots of fun games (my 2,6 & 8 year old loved her) I felt very reassured by her benevolence. I highly recommend them.
Thank you so much for your kind words Sabrina. It was a pleasure. We hope to see you in the future. Many thanks

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jill and her team to anyone. Jill is incredibly kind and caring, while also being very efficient and professional, right from the very first emails we had with her. Jill and Louise played and swam with our 4 year old girl and also were great with our 8 month old baby. We always felt totally comfortable leaving them with them, and our daughter loved playing with them. We met Jill, Sharon and Louise during our stay at the Abama and thought they stood out in terms of their caring approach. They deserve to be very busy!
Wow thank you so much Mary. Nina and Joe were a delight to care for. It was a pleasure meeting you all and hope to see you again in the future. Thank you for you kind words x

We have just come back from a week's holiday at the Abama Tenerife. Jill and Louise took care of our 5 month old baby and our friends baby of 15 months. They looked after them during the evenings and a few afternoons. They were absolutely fantastic. They were caring and trustworthy and they really made our holiday a restful break. Nothing was too much for them and they were flexible and accommodating if we had to change or add any hours in. She even went to get things that we needed from the supermarket. We would only come back to the Abama if we could have Jill and Louise again.
Thank you Dani, Dougie was so adorable and easy to care for just had to stop myself from constantly snuggling with him ☺️ We miss them both very much and can't wait to see you again soon. Thank you for your kind words x

Absolutely recommended! We felt very comfortable leaving our two year old daughter in the hands of Jill for a few hours every day during our week long stay at Abama. Always on time and with a big smile on her face. Leaving your kid with a stranger has never felt so safe! We will definitively come back and use these services again and recommend Jill to anyone who is looking for a babysitter who is warm, caring and very pleasant to cooperate with.

We just came back from a week in Tenerife with friends. Both of us have a son (5 months) and 15 months. Between Jil and Louise the boys were babysat for every evening and looked after every other afternoon. We instantly knew that the boys were in wonderful hands as the older one was so happy spending time with Jil and Louise, who would take him for a nice walk and spend time in the kids club too. The amazing service meant that we could relax for a few hours as adults and enjoy our holiday too. I would highly highly recommend Jil and Louise and knowing they are ther would encourage me to go back to Tenerife next year! They went above and beyond xxx
Thank you so much Joanna , Charlie was a pleasure to care for and I can't wait to see him again soon xx

We had a one week holiday in Tenerife last week (18 to 25 March) and had Jill taking care of our 1.5 year old daughter for 3 mornings, 2 full days and 1 evening. I can't recommend her enough! She is absolutely fantastic! Reliable, trustworthy, with lots of experience with children and super helpful. Isabel can be difficult sometimes as she doesn't "get friendly "easily but she liked Jill instantly and they got along so well. She is definitely missing her friend now! (Also, it is worth mentioning that Jill brings some nice toys for children to play with - which I think it's brilliant)
Thank you Mireli, Isobel was a delight to care for, and a little angel for me. I can't wait for you to return in the future xx

Jill was a wonderful nanny to our one year old son during our week in Tenerife. She brought lots of fun toys for him to play with and our son was happy to spend time with her from the moment they met. Jill was always punctual, professional and has a lovely, sunny personality. She even bought us extra supplies when needed (food, nappies etc) which saved us the hassle. We would definitely rebook with Jill and she made our holiday even more relaxing than we had hoped!

We just got back from a week at Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife. We got help from Jill to take care of our soon-to-be 2 year old son for two afternoons/evenings. Jill did a great job under somewhat tricky cirumstances since our soon was a bit grumby. Jill was calm, professional, showed experience, very safe hands and just had a very nice and loving way of taking care of our son. I will definately call Jill again when we come back.

We recently spent a week at the Abama hotel with our 11 month old baby son. Jill babysat for our son for 3 nights and was absolutely fantastic. She settled our son when he woke, and updated me by text message during the evening to reassure me that he was okay. She also went out of her way to buy us a bib (as I lost ours). I I would highly recommend Jill and will definitely be in touch with her next time we go to Tenerife.
Thank you Sarah, it was my pleasure.

We just returned from a week of vacation at Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife. We asked Jill to take care of our 13-month old boy during four afternoons and two evenings and everything went perfectly well! Paul really enjoyed his time with her and it was even hard for him to let her go once we came back from our afternoons! I didn't have to bother about bringing a lot of toys to keep him busy and Jill brought some and left them during the week. She even went shopping for baby food, nappies, etc. so we didn't have to worry about this and found everything we asked for in our room on our arrival. Jill is a very reliable person and I'm very happy that we found her for our week. We plan on going back to Tenerife in March and we will definitely call her again!
Sarah that's is so lovely of you to say. Thank you so much! I can't wait to see you and especially Paul in March. Jill x

We've just returned from our family holiday and i just wanted to thank Jill and the team at Mini Amigos for making it extra special! Jill took care of our two children (2 and a half and nearly 1) for a couple of afternoons as well as a couple of evenings, allowing us some time to actually relax on our holiday! The children warmed to her straight away and so did we. She kept them entertained with brilliant games and activities and they even settled better for her at bedtime than they do for us at home! We can't thank you enough and we will definitely be rebooking for our next holiday, the children can't wait to see Aunty Jill again!
