holiday village good holiday
We went here summer of 2012 not 2013 as in description as wouldn't let me put 2012 !!!, hotel was busy but with the water park just across the bridge we always got sunbeds. Hotel staff were nice and entertainment team were good, Beach was across road but not very nice there is a better beach if you travel up the road towards the main street with restaurants and the marina. You can quite easily get a bus to and from here which stops right outside the hotel on the main road. We went to selwo dolphin show and that was very good for a small charge we could get in and touch the dolphins and learn a few of their tricks. Rooms were nice we had a room on the top floor which i was a little unsure of because of having a 5 year old at the time but the view from the balcony was staggered down with the other floors so wasn't a sheer drop if that makes sense although from the front of our room was and there a number of glass lifts that take you up and down. There is an inside pool but we never used it so cant comment. We booked self catering but then upgraded once at the hotel to all in as this was quite a bit cheaper than booking all in with first choice. Reps were nice but they definitely picked their favourite holiday makers if you know what i mean. All in all it was nice and i would return there.More

Excellent family holiday April 2014
We have just come back from a 10 day holiday here. It was the best family holiday we had been on. Hotel I couldn't fault, extremely clean, everyone very friendly. The pool side is very children friendly with paddle in option as well as a baby pool. You are right on the lovely beach and had a waterpark opposite although this isn't open until 15th April but it didn't affect us as could still use the pools and pirate ship just not the water slides. The first choice entertainment team were fantastic also and plenty to keep the kids entertained. We are currently looking at other holiday village hotels for our next holiday as had such a wonderful timeMore

Just returned from a week at this holiday village, traveled with two adults and our 10 year old daughter. It was one of the best hotel we have stayed in so far, our daughter enjoyed all the kids clubs on offer. The reps worked so hard to keep the children and adults entertained, always something going on around the pool. The room (one bed apartment) was very spacious and modern. The kitchen had a kettle, cooker, toaster and microwave. There was a good selection at each meal time and the snack bar had a good selection of food too, none of went hungry. The only thing that would of made this the best holiday is to have the pool heated when it is early in the season as the water was very cold not that the kids minded! All the staff work so hard and always have a smile on their face, would defiantly re visit this hotelMore

Fun holiday, excellent entertainment team but very disappointing food.
We are just home from our holiday with our boys aged 5 and 3. We were the first to arrive at the hotel this season and from the start the first choice team made us very welcome. From day 1 you'd have thought all the first choice staff had been working together for years. It rained for the first two days of our holiday but this didn't dampen our spirits at all. The boys loved going to the kids club, which is so well run with different sessions and lovely staff. Even out with the sessions they were entertaining the kids during the day with other activities indoors which included parachute games. The entertainment in the evening was flawless, absolutely fantastic. Paige, Benny boy, Charley, Rich, Emma and Jack in the box work tirelessly to entertain you. Between the entertainment team and kids club staff, they have really done wonders for my childs self confidence. Joining in with i5live, choco-late, gangnam style.... Our room was clean and the twin beds were actually big enough for all 4 of us to sleep in them. So we didn't use the new sofa bed. The front of the hotel (sea view) gets the sun all day and our balcony at the back of the hotel saw the evening sun. The pools were great. We hardly ventured over to the water park. Parts of it weren't open and my kids preferred being around all the entertainment at the main pool. The major let down for us at this hotel was the choice and quality of the food. Having been on a few all inclusive holidays me and my husband felt that the food was the worst we'd come across. Kids food every night was hotdogs, burgers, chips, crisps, marshmallows and brioche type rolls! During the day we filled up on chicken goujons and chips at poolside. But I suppose everyone has different palettes and the food really was the only thing that really let us down. Overall an enjoyable holiday completely made by the excellent first choice staff.More

Great place for kids and adults alike
Took this family holiday as a couple due to price and it was great value. On arrival be sure to get your towel tickets and tv remote Rooms TV has bbc1 and 3 and ITV Very spacious with kitchen and a large balcony Ask for a sea view ;) Food Good Breakfast - cooked breakfast with back bacon/ creals/croissants ect Lunch - cooked chips/Yorkshire puddings/soup/meatballs/meats/fish/fruit/pasta and rice And Dinner was similar - the meats were always perfectly cooked Snack bar - ice cream toasted sarnies and chips Bars malaka Bar - bingo entertainment I.e shows and Rich, Ben and the 2 girls are wonderful. Great for the kids. Irish bar - late night entertainment till the early hours Piano Bar - usually a girl/boy duet and quieter All service was A1 and the drinks good Gym/swimming pool/sauna/Turkish baths are all good Sun beds are easy to get even late morning / early afternoon but I did go on opening week so as the hotel gets packed it may be harder and queues a bit longer for drinks ect great areas to bathe but also the balcony is ok to top a tan up too. There really should be a sun lounger up there ? Please :) Mainly People from the UK are here and the First Choice team work tirelessly to make your holiday good as do the ones that look after the children - faultless The hotel is isolated but a short taxi ride and you can reach a lovely stretch of beach and shops I recommend the Gibraltar tour - very good and the shopping is vat free :) Weather was fantastic for 5 of the 7 days All in all I found this an enjoyable holiday and if my children were younger I would defiantly come here but there again if I can get the same price again next year maybe I will return and do the dolphin and crocodile trips When the sun shines it is beautiful. We had room 536 Thank you Holiday Village Costa Del Sol ;)More
