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.

Returned from hv a few days ago with our 4 year old daughter she absolutely loved it which is what its all about the complex itself is huge a lot bigger than you imagine from the pictures you see ! The pools are amazing some cold but once your in its fine the food is definitely hit and miss but there is always something to eat the room was ok and was on the 1st floor which was a very slight concern about being broken into as it looked like our door had already been forced open but the security seemed very good with gaurds at the main entrance but we was round the back which insadentaly had a train line running past our balcony from 6 in the morning till 11.30 which wasn't a problem for us ! a must is to go down the beach which is a 15 minute walk but lots of step but is beautiful and great places to get nice food but there is no shops ! Its an amazing place but with it's location there is nothing near by it would have been nice to have a change and have a walk out for a meal but there is nothing for miles but on the whole fantastic place well done More

Great for children
This was our first family holiday and I have to say a great place if you want entertainment for the kids. Our sea view room was spacious and really well presented. Some reviews have commented on the distance between pool locations, but to be fare, it isn't that bad at all. Little too far from the beach if you have a buggy though. Food was a little hit and miss in terms of quality and after a few days rather repetitive. The entertainment team were excellent and worked their socks off and if you have children of different ages there would be something for everyone. All the hotel staff were helpful and the gentleman on reception in the spa was lovely. Small things let the holiday down for us - an hour cueing in reception to check in (which with a toddler having been awake since 2.30am was the last thing we needed considering it was past lunch on arrival - for such a large hotel I would expect them to be better equipped), windows in our room were dirty and obscured the view, cracked toilet seat, broken air con (although this was fixed when it stopped working all together within a short time of reporting). The positives far out weighed any negatives, but the food was a sticking point and we wouldn't return because if it.More
Great family holiday
We have just returned from our stay at the holiday village Costa del sol from 18th till 25th. We were a little apprehensive of arriving here after reading mixed reviews but we had been to the holiday village in Egypt and we're impressed. We were traveling as a family of 3 with our 14month old son the coach took a little longer than 40 mins because of so many drop offs (we traveled on a Thursday) we arrived checked in straight away the staff pleasent and helpful. We were in room 328 our room was fantastic big and spotlessly clean with large balcony overlooking the sea/pool! The food here is a very good choice with something for everyone, yes there are a lot of chicken nuggets and chips to cater for the 'Brits' to be honest if I'm going abroad is rather enjoy the local cuisine but myself and my husband didn't eat chips once and found the food varied. You do have to get up early to secure a good spot by the pool but for us that's not a problem having a baby that wakes early. The pool is Quite busy but again it didn't bother us as this is a hotel aimed at family's ..., we had lunch at the beach club everyday which is a short walk over the bridge the food there is great and We enjoyed spending the afternoon there as out son loved running though the water fountains. The only Down points we had were it was a little loud at night in the room we had and the American diner was so slow we ended up cancelling ours mains. Maybe just a problem that night. But overall a very good trip we even traveled to toremolinos to the beach one day which was lovely and easy to get to. We would definitely return with friends and kids as this holiday is ideal for familiesMore
An honest opinion
I have just returned on the 28th from the Holiday Village and after reading various good/bad reviews would like to add mine. We travelled as a family of five which included my son in law my daughter and granddaughter aged 4 my wife and myself. The rooms are the largest I have stopped in and are more than adequate, my daughters wasn't as clean as it should have been but this was quickly sorted out for a deep clean after reporting it to reception, for her inconvenience they waived the fee on her safe for the week which was a nice gesture, the safes are actually very reasonably priced and are double the size you normally get and are entered by your own personal code so no key to worry about. The food in the hotel I found to be very good, when people say it is repetitive that's because there are so many dishes available so it may appear to be pork /chicken beef variations everyday but lets be honest that's what most people eat everyday back in the UK anyway, only difference is they have only one meat per day, instead the repetition is down to them having all different meat selections at each sitting. The pools are really good and child friendly and life guards are always there, as regards food plates and drinking cups being left about this is down to the holiday makers being lazy and not the fault of the hotel, it would be very difficult to have staff squeezing in between and under occupied sun beds to remove rubbish, one waiter even thanked me for putting my rubbish in the bin and helping him, which made me realise that I was one of the few that did this EVERYONE WHO READS THIS REVIEW PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO DISPOSE OF YOUR RUBBISH, JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE ON HOLIDAY DONT LEAVE IT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO DO. The entertainment staff are really good with the kids during the day doing various activities but I found the early evening disco to be very poor the dance moves were very difficult for the young ones to follow so invariably they just stood there. The same group of entertainers also did most of the late evening shows and although they try hard I think more professional acts are needed could someone mention to Lee that its quite obvious you are gay and to cut out the innuendo comments they are not needed in a family hotel complex, 2 professional acts I did see was the magician who was very good and entertaining and involved the children in his act and the hypnotist who I thought was awful and how he has continued to work that hotel for over ten years I will never know, maybe he is very cheap. The resort is really out on its own and is a long walk to either Benalmadena or Fuengirolla with nothing in between to stop off and have a drink or bite to eat. The train station is a 12 minute walk away and would be very difficult for anyone who was physically impaired due to the amount of steps to climb up ( at a guess 80) it would also be difficult for young children reliant on a pushchair. If you can make it the trains are very frequent spotlessly clean and really cheap 1.80 euro will take you to Torremolinos much cheaper than a taxi espescially if you are a family of five because you would need two taxis as all of them only carry 4 passengers. Do I think its a good hotel, undoubtedly yes if you are happy to spend all week there without leaving the place and just want to laze around. Would I go again......... this would have to be a no as I like more happening in the close area outside a hotel Would my Daughter and her family go again...... YES they would because their Daughter had a wonderful time and will continue to talk about it for a long time. So there you have it an honest opinion, certain things could be better and I am sure the hotel managers will strive to improve any shortcomings but seeing as though my downside is based on surrounding areas that's beyond their controlMore
