Holiday Village Costa del Sol

This whopping family hotel pairs a Grade-A pool scene with panoramic views of the sea.

The real drawcard at this place is its all-action Beach Club, where a big bunch of pools are paired with panoramic sea views and fun extras like a wave machine and pirate ship.

You can sink into a poolside Jacuzzi® at the Beach Club, pull up a chair at the al fresco restaurant and bar, or take your pick of activities like mini golf and archery.

Nice holiday

I was really worried about some of the terrible nit picky reviews i had read on here just before going on my holiday to the holiday village, but i have to say its nothing like the terrible reviews are making out. We had a lovely 2weeks with my 7 year old and 3 year old. My son loved ross and josh at football accademy! The hotel and beach club are lovely and they are clean. I wouldnt return as the world is big and there are lots of places to see. But any one who is stressing, dont! Food is ok, plenty of variety abd something different every night. My kids lived on chips and nuggets but hey, they are on holiday! Its not worth stressing about! Iv been to lots of all inclusive hotels and i think the spanish attempts at english faves such as cottage pie are all pretty much the same (no disrespect) and not a reflection on the hotel. Thank you for a lovely break, thats what i say!!More


Good if you have young children to entertain.

Came back Thursday after a weeks stay. Large adequately equipped rooms but could of been cleaner and cooler, very comfy beds huge sofa bed. Took the grandchildren on holiday and the 6 various pools were good for them once they had warmed up a little. The food is as expected at an all in resort mass produced and trayed up, could of been hotter and more varied, but then certainly suited some guest who piled up plates then left most of it day after day, never seen so many children have chocolate for breakfast dinner and tea. The staff coped very well at meal times I thought and with very little thanks. Enjoyed the American diner rather than the Italian. The pool snacks were the same everyday and awful so go over the bridge to the lunch bar. Breakfast was the best meal but there is no tea and coffee served with the lunch or evening meals, you have to go to the bar afterwards and this is the only place we queued in at any time so not sure why other reviewers queued 25 mins. This is not a place for teenagers in my opinion. The location is a let down as there are no shops nearby and the resort is on a rock front not actually on the beach as advertised. You can walk to the beach in 10 mins and hire beds and parasols, in fact we were glad to leave the pool area for a change. If there are 4 or more it's cheaper to hire a car rather than do hotel excursions and you have freer time to enjoy other sites as you go. Hire the car before you go it will be a lot cheaper than Europa on site. Ronda is lovely and well worth the trip. Catch the bus to Paloma Park which is a lovely walk round and it has small birds and animals running free. The worst thing about the hotel was the lifts, there are not enough and they are so small you can only get a buggy and 2 people in them at one time. They constantly broke down sometimes for days and we had to carry the babies buggies up and down 3 floors. There are not enough toilets and there is only 1 hand drier in each which is over 5 ft high and impossible for children to reach, they need to fit more lower ones. The indoor pool was OK as it was warmer but it's tiny and then if you want to use the sauna or Turkish bath it's 8 euros each. I didn't mind buying a swim cap it's normal in Europe. There is a laundry room on the -2 floor with washers, dryers iron and ironing boards which is useful if you have young babies. Wifi is none existent in the rooms which is a given in this day and age so a big let down.More


disapointing first holiday with thomson!

We were a bit nervous going to this hotel readin such bad reviews but tried stayin positive as there was some good reviews and we are not fussy people and have enjoyed all past holidays. We arrived and reception staff were nice enough, we entered room 506 we were hit by a stong sewage smell which came from the bathroom, the floor was dirty and the room in general you could tell hadnt been properly cleaned for us comin in. I had to go ask for a travel cot for my toddler so i told reception theres a terrible smell and our floor was dirty she said she would have an engineer called we never heard anything else about it our floor was not cleaned once in the week, all the cleaner seemed to do was make bed and put fresh towels in. When the travel cot came the blue blanket they put in it had a dried in orange sick stain i was furious and took it down and reception apologised. Meal times were caos we were told we cudnt go till 7.45 as it will be too busy i was bit annoyed by this as my two year old goes to bed around then but we adapted, it was like feeding time at the zoo pure caos, there was food and spillages on floor not being attended to one lady slipped and fell her dinner was everywhere it was myself and other holiday makers helpin her and cleaning it up when a member of staff did arrive and tell us to leave it i sat back at my table and no 1 cleaned it no signage was put up it was a disgrace. The food was mostly cold same thing everyday and night, pink chicken on a number of occasions no variation for kids either cheap chicken nuggets,hamburgers or hotdog mash potato was like cement my boy only ate cerial and rolls all week he has upset tummy and the runs! On the up side the beach club was great and bed was comfy, local area has lots to do if you use bus and trains. Seaworld was rubbish, the biopark and cable cars were great. The bar and entertainment staff were good. We realised quickly it could be a great hotel but is seriously under staffed thats the problem, dont think the problem lies with the cleaners or the waitin staff its the managment and lack of staff thats the problem. In futcher we will stick with smaller hotels. First choice? More like last choice!More

Highly Recommended

we have just returned from our 1 week stay at this hotel. I totally recommended it. My 4 year old daughter was throughy entertained and the First Choice team are well and truly brilliant they deserve a medal for their hard work and effort. the beech club was great and can spend the full day there. There is plenty of entertainment on the site where there is two pool again first choice team were fantatsic with the entertainment through out the day aswell as night, not just for kids but the adults to. Alwayss a wide range of food on , and i cant fault it in any way or form my daughter is a fussy eater but was well and truely able to pick something off this choice of menu. there is small unit on site but over the bridge a big resuarte which is the sites complex. I was happy with my stay, complex, tidyness, cleaness, and most of all activities. I most certainly will be returning and if you have a teenager whos activitie is the phone free wifi is provided just got to ask for password haha. again Thomson/First Choice Reps spectacularMore

Ideal place for young kids

Enjoyed a great week with 1 year old daughter and 3 year old son. Nice clean family apartment with plenty of space. Location had numerous pools to keep the kids entertained just be prepared to buy a water pistol as bedtime seemed to have one!! We went in various excursions to mix the week up and these were easy to arrange. Food was ok with breakfast being the best. Evening meals a bit mixed in quality but overall no issues and would recommend the hotel More
