Verdura Resort, Sicily
This hotel is a gem and well rehearsed in creating special moments. I particularly loved the grand suites with two luxuriously appointed rooms, a handy kitchenette, an unusual bath tub with views of a lemon tree. There is so much space too with a private enclosed inner courtyard with a comfy daybed whilst the large terrace with sunbeds and even a hammock opens on to large garden area leading to the beach. The sunset is magnificent! Don't worry if you want a more modest room, the decor is the same and all enjoy the same view and sunsets!
The resort is perfect for babies with babysitting and a daytime crèche payable by the hour - you can go in to so you can settle them or just use it as an excellent play facility. The estate is flat so pushchair friendly and its size means plenty of space to walk too.
For you and your new hubby or wife of course there are also all the sports but the spa is great and offers double treatment rooms, there are some romantic dining options and walks around the vast estate.
If you like to get out and about then Sicily is rich in culture - both people and ruins. There is a wine-tasting lunch at a local family-run vineyard, 'mama' style dining in a typical restaurant in a mountain village or stroll around the harbour town of Sciacca.
A top 5 star - not cheap but for me, worth the cost.

Carlisle Bay, Antigua
The flight is obviously longer than a Mediterranean destiantion but well worth the effort. This luxury hotel combines its superb location on the most picturesque white sandy beach with excellent service, great facilities and a welcome for young children found in few other hotels that make it a top choice for a honeymoon with the kids, nowadays commonly known as a Familymoon.
Allowing families only into the Beach Suites keeps a lid on the number of kids so whilst there are enough for you to feel family concious there are not too many to make if feel more like a nursery than a 5 star hotel. The Beach Suites which are gournd floor with 2 separate rooms are just perfet as they open out almost directly onto the beach making afternoons and evenings on the terrace a pleasure.
The creche is purpose built and an excellent facility. A small boutique hotel with just 82 Suites it truly is a perfect honeymoon hotel with a baby in tow.

Domes of Elounda, Crete
All luxurious boutique hotel offering secluded suites and villas and for me the most amazing views over the glittering Mirabello Bay and on to the famous Island of Spinalonga, a fortress and former Leper colony famed in the book ‘Small Island’.
It is a romantic retreat, innovatively built into the hillside to blend harmoniously with the landscape. We love the impressive Spa with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy a choice of restaurants on-site and the beach front bar - a perfect place to relax in the evening under the stars - or venture to one of the nearby typically Greek harbour villages.
Each of the 80 suites is huge and superbly decorated in earth colours with a blend of hand-picked local art, designer furniture and delicately-carved wooden furnishings. We love the family suites which have a master bedroom and a second bedroom for children, a bathroom with separate access from each bedroom and a balcony or terrace with a heated Jacuzzi hot tub.
There is an excellent creche from 4 months, a 'Blue Flag' Sandy beach and the hotel can provide all the extras needed when travelling with a baby leaving you to relax.

Beachcombers's Dinarobin in Mauritius offers it all for a honeymoon: a calm and exclusive 5-star all-suite hotel with next door sister hotel the paradis, also 5 star, offering more of a buzz with a friendly tennis centre, sports centre and additional restaurants and bars.
With the back drop of Le Morne and 5km of stunning beaches fringing the crystal clear Indian Ocean it truly feels like paradise and the service is impeccable.
Children are more than welcome and there is a children's club from 3 years where you can pay a very reasonable hourly rate for a nanny/babysitter to care for your little one so you can relax and enjoy some time as a couple too.
Mauritius is an ideal honeymoon destination even with a baby in tow!
