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.

Fantastic Holiday

First time we been to a holiday village with our 6 year old son. Accommodation is great,had a one bedroom apartment with sea view, maid in everyday, really clean, plenty of space, although we were all inclusive you had a little kitchen with fridge to keep drinks cool, air conditioning worked really well and had a big balcony. All the staff and entertainment team work really hard keeping the children happy, my son enjoyed the kids clubs and the football academy, there was lots of choice of activities and there are plenty of pools to enjoy. The food was excellent with a huge choice of main courses and desserts. There is a bus stop just outside hotel to take you to Benalmadena and Fuengirola if you wish to leave hotel, we visited both and had a lovely time at the beaches. Also did a trip to the market and Bioparc with the hotel which was excellent. Would recommend this complex to family and friends.More

Fantastic resort, average rooms

Had a family trip here, enjoyed it hugely. Lots of different pools and things to do which my son loved. Only real criticism is the awful cabaret/music that was playing loudly outside our room until midnight every night. It's a kids resort so not sure why it was so loud! Rooms were pretty ropey and grimy too. Everything else was great, wonderful selection of food each night, bars everywhere and great weather. The reps were absolutely fantastic too, nothing too much trouble. Would definitely return to holiday village, just wish they'd smarten the rooms up a bit. Fantastic time!More

For your kids & the kid in you

I'm not one for holidays. I don't do them. I had my arm twisted to have a break with my 2 x kiddies (4yrs & 7wks). I LOVED IT!! How you actually never have to leave the complex is brilliant. Even to the swimming pools across the road, it's all fenced in. I felt my kids were totally safe. Food was absolutely amazing. Staff were fantastic. Rooms were gorgeous & really clean. Your accommodation is very surreal. You open your apartment door & if feels like your stepping into your local shopping centre. We had a train line running outside our rear balcony which concerned me, but you can't hear them, they're electric! For someone like me who doesn't do holidays, I'd go back tomorrow. Cannot fault this place!More

Third time - will be returning again next year

Returned to the Holiday village for the third year running but the first time during school holidays. Yes it's busy, yes you have to be up early to get a sunbed, yes you have to queue at the bar and yes you have to queue at dinner. BUT there is plenty of space around the pools, the drink and ice cream never runs out and the food is never ending. Travelled with 10 people, 2 over 60's, 4 30's, 9,7, 3 & 15 week old baby and everybody was catered for. Entertainment team are amazing and work so hard, especially Charley, Paige & Rich. We had 3 rooms and I emailed the hotel before travelling to request rooms next door which was accommodated on our arrival. Rooms are spacious and easily accommodate 4 people, little kitchen was great with the baby. All in all a great place for a memorable family holiday but not the place for you if you like quiet, relaxing holidays!!More

Butlins in Spain!

Very dissapointed. If I wanted to go to Butlins I wouldn't have got on a plane with kids. The hotel was ok and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Lots to do for the kids including football, great wave pool with slide and doughnuts. Unfortunately the quality of the hotel was just 'cheap'. Napkins were plastic (didn't soak anything up), plastic plants and furnishings etc, good variety of food but could have got it all for a pound from Iceland. Queues everywhere (food, pool, loungers, reception etc). I think we could have tolerated most of it but what made it worse were thetype of guest staying here. Very working class, lots of smokers and in volumes! Not what we expected from a 4-star hotel. We are used to better and feel a little misled by the advertising. If it's cheap and cheerful you are after, it's the right place, for anything more go elsewhere.More
