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.

Excellent holiday!

Just returned from a weeks holiday here and we all had an excellent time!! Best family holiday we have been on. Staff were all great and always smiling. Couldn't fault the food at all,plenty of choice for everyone.The main restaurant could get quite busy at dinner time but wasn't a problem.Would recommend going to the Italian and American restaurant as they were both lovely! My son loved going to the kids club several times a day,we felt very relaxed leaving him there as the staff were always lovely and very welcoming.Very strict aswell about who is collecting.We also loved the entertainment at night for the kids. I felt very reassured being at the many pools as in the week we were there I saw lifeguards twice having to jump in the pool and rescue kids!! We were very happy to know they were paying attention unlike the parents!! Would love to return to this hotel in the future.Keep up the good work!!More


Even better than the last time - top marks

I judge a hotel on how many things they get right vs what they get wrong. This place gets very little wrong. Firstly, the staff are amazing. Reception, piano bar ladies and restaurant team are all excellent and so polite and helpful. How they do it surrounded by screaming kids is a credit to the hotel. Everything else about the place shouts well run, efficient and customer focussed. Food great, bars great, pools great, rooms lovely. Also love the new loyalty card for returning guests. Reception were great in showing us this. Improvement opportunities would be decor in bathrooms a bit grubby, wireless a bit hit and miss, and no adults only areas to escape the 2.4 million kids all high on E numbers and ice cream. I'd also open breakfast earlier on departure flight day as most flights very early. Overall though, well done to Holiday World. Keep it up, keep the price down and we'll be back.More

Fantastic holiday.

Me and my partner went on an all inclusive trip to the holiday village and i must say it was the best holiday weve both ever been on. The entertainment was great. The first choice and hotel staff all made us feel very welcome. The food was tasty. The variety of activities there for the adults and children was fantastic. We were never left bored. The hotel is based in the beautiful location of Benalmadena. The hotel is around a 5-10 minute walk to a beautiful beach. Any bad reviews you may hear about this hotel, please do not listen to them as they are so irrelevant. This hotel was absolutely gorgeous inside and out. It was by far a 5* in our eyes.More
