We have been exploring Porto Arabia at the Pearl bit by bit each evening when it gets slightly cooler. We tend to get dinner somewhere then have a little walk to explore what’s nearby. Obviously being the evening, the kids are often getting tired and start complaining after we have walked a little so we end up giving up. Well, as the Eid holiday was called a day earlier than we expected and my husband was wanting to do some work I decided to go out exploring with the kids.
We walked over to Medina Central and had look around the surrounding streets and then to our favourite frozen yoghurt place; Menchies to beat the mid-day heat. We decided to head over to the marina side of Porto Arabia and managed to find a great little soft play place at 18 La Croisette called Fun and More. Oscar and Millie were crazy about soft play places in the U.K. over the summer and they are at that lovely age were they can almost be left to play together and not need following around the play area too much. Yay! Mum can sit down and almost relax!
Fun and More was completely empty when we got there so Oscar and Millie had the place to themselves. There was a ball pool, slides and lots of different climbing apparatus. The staff were extremely friendly and the play area was spotless. It’s not huge inside compared to other larger play areas but for something local it’s perfect for Oscar and Millie.
Inside Fun and More there is also a girls spa and kids hair salon. They look lovely inside and are decorated with kids in mind. The hair salon will be perfect for us being so close by for when Oscar and Millie need their hair cutting and the girls salon I can see being a great place to visit with Millie for a treat or special occasions. I quite fancy the mum and daughter package too so I can have some pampering also!
Fun and More also offer birthday party packages including lots of different options and extras – kids food, adult food, play area access, party games, spa packages etc. All the details and prices can be collected from Fun and More.
I would highly recommend Fun and More, especially for those with young children that live on the Pearl. It’s not a huge play area but great if you’ve got kids who are bored at home and you don’t want to travel far. We will definitely be making regular trips there until the weather cools down and we can get outside a bit more.
