What a delight Madrid airport is when traveling with kids. This lounge was fantastic – there are various play areas, drawing areas, facilities for cooking, sleeping, feeding, and ofcourse for parents to relax. This is an utopia for weary parents on the go. This model should be replicated all over the World.
Not just this lounge, but all around the terminal there are children playarea as shown below. Our daughters were really occupied during our transit and we could get them a bit tired of running around and playing, and this made them sleepy on our connecting flight.
