On the 6th of January each year we release the dates for the following year. For example, in January 2022, we released the dates for 2023.
If you’re booking via the site directly, you’ll give us details of your insurance or funding provider when booking and have 72 hours for them to complete the payment.
However, we cannot hold spaces for more than 24 hours if you’re offered a place from the waiting list, so payment must be completed within that time frame.
We do this early on to help us plan our team schedule so you have access to the right therapist or therapists at the right time.
We ask you for some quite detailed information as soon as you register to make sure we assign the best therapist to suit your child’s specific needs.
We will then contact you nearer the time for current information about your child’s abilities, requirements and goals, so we can plan your individual sessions in more detail.
Even if you’re a repeat client, it’s amazing how much can change in a short space of time so we need to learn about any progress you’ve made, find out if there have been any growth spurts or changes, if you have new goals and any other new information which may be relevant.
Swim Lab International does not arrange flights and accommodation, however, we can recommend people who do.
Many of our Lanzarote families have booked with Camel Travel. They can take care of everything on your behalf and will make sure that the accommodation you book is exactly as described, with the access or equipment you need so there are no surprises when you get here. They can also assist with airport transfers or car hire, and advise you with any other aspect of your travel.
If you want to be close at hand, the Fariones Apartments are a stone’s throw away or for a little more luxury, the Fariones Hotel is also just across the road from the Sports Centre where the team is based and has been adapted to suit disabled guests. They have a wide range of facilities to suit all the family, and you’ll all have access to all of the sports centre if you’re guests there.

Of course, you can bring the whole family. It’s an ideal opportunity to enjoy some downtime together, relax or explore the island. However, please remember that the therapy sessions during our week are a priority, and other activities should be planned around that schedule allowing time for rest in between.
We encourage you as a parent to be present for the sessions so we can share our knowledge.
There’s also an option to pay for a pass for the week to enjoy the Fariones Sports Centre facilities, including the gym, classes, tennis courts and more. If you pay for a pass for two adults, your children can come in for free. You can also book a massage or relax by the pool, so the rest of the family can be entertained throughout the day whilst we focus on the therapy sessions.
Things can change quickly, from growth spurts to ability and even changes to your goals.
It’s close enough to your week to be current and up to date but allows the time we need to do any additional research to ensure we give you the best possible support.
We may contact you for more information from your existing therapists or practitioners at home, all of which takes time to come through. We can then choose or create activities suited to your needs and put together your tailor-made schedule.
You know your child better than anyone. We include you in the planning process to make sure we support you as a family as well as give the best therapy solutions to help achieve your goals.
