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.

Super family holiday

We visited here from May 26th-June 5th. I had pre-read reviews on here and so was a tad confused as they contrasted so greatly. My opinion is that there must be people who just look for the negative and can't wait to post on here. Yes, we did have what may be considered negatives in some people's eyes eg, there were some cigarette butts on the balcony and we had to wait 30 mins for our room to be ready, but did that spoil our holiday? No way! My husband and I travelled with our son, 7, and daughter, 4. Our room was really pleasing, big double room, lovely balcony overlooking the sea, huge bathroom, kitchen area (which we didn't use at all) and sitting area. The children were fine on the fold out sofa bed, they found it exciting! The room was well air conditioned and was quiet at night. The pool area was great, we never had a problem getting sun beds. It was quite busy and noisy (music, beach party, water polo, quiz etc) but over the road it is quieter so there are options. We were pleased with the food, there's huge variety to suit everyone. I know people moan about the snack bar at the beach. My opinion it it's location as it's all in a small corner so people can't get in and out easily, then if there's a wait for a dish to be topped up, the queues get huge. I was quite shocked at just quite how high some people piled their plates and then how much food was getting thrown into the bins. We found it better at lunch time to walk over to the beach club as they open a restaurant from 12-3 for lunch which they don't do in the main hotel. Our children loved the kids clubs, the entertainment teams are truly amazing and work tirelessly. They are also extremely talented, we thoroughly enjoyed the evening shows and were amazed by the quality of the singing (Adam, Ben, Candice & Jessie) we loved the Rock night, the festival night and the west end show. The children thought Live and Loud was awesome too, Chantelle and Adam do a great job. We were a bit disappointed with the beach, it was a bit of a trek, I'm pleased we didn't have a buggy as there are loads of steps to get to it. We only went there once. My main disappointment of our 10 days was the water temperature at the beach club, we visited at the end of May/ beginning of June and the water was freezing, it really took the pleasure away from it. The children tolerated it as they were desperate to go on the pirate ship slide but they couldn't stay in for long, it was a real shame. I'm not sure if this may improve in high season. All in all it was a great holiday and I would recommend it. The complex is huge so it's quite impersonal. Last year we went to a smaller all inclusive in menorca and preferred the more intimate hotel arrangement but this wouldn't put me off recommending Costa Holiday Village. One last thing. My 4 year old daughter fell in love with the entertainment team and the KouKou song. On our last day they invited her up to do the dance on stage with them, this totally made her holiday and she hasn't stopped talking about it since!More

Contrasting Quality in Everything

There are things about this hotel that are amazing, and other things that are just awful, and it is hard to believe that the contrasts could be so great within one place. I'll start with the good. The pools for kids are fantastic, and I have never seen better. There must have been at least five, all different, and my two (3 & 1) loved every minute. It was busy, but even at full capacity there were always sunbeds available. The rooms were good, and the bathroom and shower were excellent. The service in the rooms was also great. Everything was replaced daily, and I don't think we ever saw the maid... The bad. Like the other Holiday Village we went to, the big pools are not heated, and were freezing to the point that even in a full wet suit, my three year old couldn't stand it. So the Pirate Ship pool, which she loved, she ended up not going in much. The worst thing is the food,, which is just awful beyond description (seriously). There is little that isn't deep fried or re-fried), and all the meat was poor quality. Even the real meat (most of it was reconstituted) was tough and inedible. The queues for the food went half way around the restaurant. On the 'Steak House ' Speciality Restaurant (after five days anything was worth a gamble), the steal came and it was about 1mm think, and I could have nailed it to my shoe, just laughably bad and I couldn't eat it. The glass of wine we got on arrival there was the only drink we got all night, as no one came and filled up your glass, and the service was on a par with the food. I ate mainly at the salad bar, and ended up losing 3 lbs in a week. There isn't a queue for the salad bar very often, if you get my drift... At peak entertainment time, when there were several hundred people in the main area, there were maybe one or two people serving at the bar, which meant you had to queue (again) for 20 minutes to get a drink. At one of the bars, you weren't allowed more than three drinks, which meant I had to queue twice for drinks for me, my wife, and two kids. Just appalling. Don't waste your time trying to get the WIFI to work either, I didn't meet anyone who succeeded with it. This is totally a kids place, they don't mind low quality food and having Dad wait in a queue, but I'm sure I could have done better for my moneyMore


Second time there and it doesn't disappoint.

We went the the Polynesia for the second time in May and we can't recommend it more. The first visit was in 2015 when our son was only 6 months old! It caters for everything a family needs. The food and drink are both fantastic and offer a great selection on all inclusive. We will be going again next year and I cant wait.More

Nearly brilliant

Holiday was great. Went with my wife and 2 boys aged 6. They loved the pool although they were too small for the other pool over the road with the waves etc. Hotel is fine food is OK definitely not the best or the worst food. None of us got Ill. Some of the plates could be better washed but everything seemed clean enough as did the staff. The rooms were poor. Old tiles needing new grout the toilet was all stained inside due to age and the overall room needed a good scrub. I ran my finger down cupboard door and had a pile of dust. Kids had to sleep on a pull out bed under couch or on couch which isn't ideal. The staff are great very helpful as are the reps who work all day and night with loads of entertainment on. One of our sons done the football academy and the guys there are really good. The night entertainment is also great and much better than some holidays we've been on. Overall good but could have been brilliant if accommodation was better.More


Mixed Review.....

We came to the Holiday Village expecting wonderful things and in some aspects we did. The hotel itself was great, the sail boat was a great thing to look at and the rooms were lovely and loved the big balcony. The pools were ok, we were there for 7 days and 3 out of the 7 the pool got closed due to accidents, which couldn't be helped I guess but just disappointing. The food was great, so much variety and nice themed evenings. The kids club were fantastic, always happy and can see they have so much passion and enthusiasm for what they do, in particular was Becca from Scotland and Shannon, they were great and really warmed to them. Well done girls, keep doing what you are doing. The Entertainment however we found really disappointing :( There was NO mini disco!! This is often one of the highlights of peoples holidays and for people with young children its so wonderful to see them dancing and enjoying themselves however there was widgets and Live and Loud which we found was aimed only really for children over 6 at least as very technology based and not terribly interactive. We have a 1 year old and 5 year old and found they were very bored in the evenings as there was no music to dance to and their attention span is short to watch the presenters. The production team shows were great and fab voices however Chantelle the presenter was so was not at all a people person, if approaching her to speak to ( which quite often she walked around with her head down to avoid eye contact ) it came across as it was a real effort to speak to us and was often seen yawning on stage when watching the screen during live and loud. We would return to a holiday village perhaps but at least not until our children are at least 6 as they could not join in any of the pool activities either as had to be 6 and also pay for them too. On the whole it was a good holiday would just recommend it for families with children over 6 so they could appreciate the activities and perhaps enjoy the entertainment more. Hotel was lovely and as I mentioned the kids club were fantastic and we also saw them catering for a disabled girl in a wheelchair, including her and their care and way with her was so warming to see. The sessions were fab just the entertainment staff could be more welcoming and show more interest and interaction with holiday makers.More
