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.

Great for a family holiday
We've just returned from 2 weeks at the Holiday Village in the Costa Del Sol. I would definitely recommend it for anyone travelling with children, although if travelling just as an adult or in an adult group you'd probably want to avoid. We have have a 3 year old and 10 month old and the resort is very well kitted out for this age range, especially as you get an entire apartment even though all inclusive. The bathroom was huge, it had a kitchen and a separate bedroom. The only hang up I had with the room was it was north facing and the view was overlooking a car park and a railway line. I asked to upgrade on arrival once I saw the positioning but the hotel was full (even though past kids hols). Our daughter attended kids club for one session most days and our son went to the creche for 2 hours most days. This afforded my husband and I one hour and 20 minutes of us time which was nice. Both kids loved the club/creche and the themes they put on and the staff were all fab. Only recommendation I'd have is to get the creche times and kids club timetable to marry up as there was limited crossover, and we would have loved to have time to go to the spa for some treatments together. The evening entertainment was good, and all the evening presenters were full of energy. My daughter loved the live and loud party every night. The pools and beach club are fantastic with great swimming pools, and were really warm when we first arrived. We enrolled our daughter in 4 swimming lessons. Hats off to Carolyn, she was great with her and even had her floating on her back unaided for nearly a minute. The pool temp did really drop the last few days but guess that's because it rained one evening and the air temp dropped. The buffet food was good but it was definitely crazy and noisy in there with so many kids. This was fine for us as we were adding to the noise but I did feel sorry for some of the couples without children in there. We went to all three speciality restaurants and the best was Oh My Grill. Very delicious. We visited the closest beach - 15 minute walk away which was a nice trip, and also got a taxi to benalmadena which was also worth a visit. Definitely a fab experience for those with small children.More
worst time ever
Arrived on the 28/08/2016 it looks good had to wait for the room to be made ready Went to look at the pools was only for kids not adults went to the restaurant for food look good but that's all entertainment for the kids was very good none for adults only bingo your need a 15 min bus ride to go any were or a 12 euro taxi ride we had to go out to eat in the end room were not all ways cleaned and we had to ask for towels first time in Spain and the lastMore
We had a fabulous two week holiday. The food was great, the American and Italian restaurants are a must during your holiday. The pools and water parks are kept very clean and are brilliant for the little and big kids. The room was a bit dated but clean. The reception staff were absolutely amazing.... Nothing was too much trouble, they were always happy, helpful and efficient. I would recommend this hotel to families and will definitely return in the future. Only disappointing aspect was cleaner of the room. She did not once sweep the balcony and her cleaning was not up to expected standards. More
Brilliant first holiday
I would highly recommend first choice holidays to start with. Everything is ran smoothly and transfers were brilliant. Hotel is well secured so we felt really safe whilst our stay here. The hotel is gorgeous, very clean inside and out! Receptionist was great checking us in, told is everything we needed to know. Room was very clean and the maids changed our bed sheets and towels everyday. We paid for pool/sea view room which I'm glad about, was a lovely view on our balcony. Food is basic, but that's fine as I wasn't expecting anything spectacular, we all enjoyed it- plus you can book the Italian and American diner (1 free meal from each during your stay). Pool was basic but clean which was great for our 2 year old. Night time entertainment was great, they all put 100% effort in. Overall we loved it here and would definitely recommend. CONS- â¢ you have to pay for some things such as branded spirits, trampoline, racing cars and trampoline jumper etc. â¢ the complex is a taxi ride away from places (which is a pain). â¢ wish there is more for the adults at the entertainment, however the bingo is great (wish it was on for longer). â¢ add a mini disco on to the children's entertainment, my little boy loves to dance! â¢ maybe add something in the day time for the younger children, my little boy loved swimming but wished there was a little more on for his age. I would highly recommend this hotel, very secure and welcoming for a first holiday. More
Big let down here. Food lukewarm and a lot of it fingered through by young children. They have hand sanitisers at the main doors but these are usually empty. Not enough sunbeds or brollies, and entertainment hit and miss. Rooms ok but nothing special. Very expensive for what you get. Wouldn't go again. Benalmadena is lovely though and short trip to Gibralter was amazing. Lots of people had bugs and ear infections, and I didn't see the pool being PH checked whilst I was there.More
