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.

Great holiday, Great hotel

Recommended highly by our local Thomson travel agent we had no hesitation in booking it. We travelled 14th August to the 21st August 15, Myself, my wife and our two boys aged 5 and 2 n half. We read the reviews before we went but kept an open mind. We booked it because on the photos it looked clean, spacious with plenty of pools and things to keep our children entertained. From us it gets a big thumbs up in all aspects. The check in was quick and efficient considering how many people there actually was checking in. The reception staff are courteous and helpful. I would say it would be better if the forms for checking in could be given out in advance to fill in then this would be even more quicker. We stayed in room 548. We had a sea view and a mountain view. The room was clean and kept cleaned daily by the maids, replacing towels only if they were left in the bath. Couldnt fault the work of the maids at any point during our stay. The room was spacious with plenty of storage and a small kitchen area complete with kettle and microwave. The fridge had 2 micro meals in it and muffins because we had missed the evening meal sitting which was a nice touch. The bathroom was spacious and clean also. The air con was a little cold and noisy through the night but was highly effective. The beds where comfy and a good size which was handy as the children decided that 4 in a bed was better and there was still loads of bed left. The room was extremely quiet despite being over the laundry which sometimes produced a strange whirring noise. The meals cater for everybody. Breakfast has cereals, yoghurts, fruits, bacon, sausage, egg, beans and a variety of breads. Freshly made omelettes with a filling of choice are available and seemed to be highly in demand. Dinner is served at the beach club and again a wide variety from salads and cold meats to warm dishes of the day such as pastas, paella spanish omelettes, pork,chicken kebabs, sweet n sour chicken, steak, chops. Desert was ice creams, cakes pastries and fruits. Evening meal is done in 2 sittings and again caters for everybody. There is enough variety to make sure you dont have the same meal twice. The snack bar by the main pool also had fries burgers and hot dogs with chicken nuggets and fruits available. We also had reservations in the italian restaraunt and the american diner. Worth booking for a change from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant. The pool by the hotel is clean with lots of activities going on and if you can get a lounger before 9 then you are onto a winner although our boys preferred the beach club over the road so we didnt get involved in the daily struggle. We used the hotel pool only from half 4 onwards for the last hour for a snack and a last swim. The beach club is fantastic. Little slides for the kids, wave pool, donuts, a small cave with waterfalls. My favourite was the massage beds in the small pool overlooking the sea. The beach club opens at 10 so its easy to get a lounger too. Its a small walk over the bridge and has 2 bars that serve drinks. Snacks are additional and slushes are €1.60. Coco Rum and pineapple juice was our drink of preference. The bar staff are wonderful,courteous and hard working. Cant recall a pool being shut for poo issues but there are signs around all the pools asking parents to put swimming nappies on. In all honesty though its the parents fault that the pools are closed not the hotels. The toilets around the hotel are clean and the grounds are clean. We enjoyed a nightly game of mini golf after our evening meal, clubs are available from reception as are table tennis bats for the poolside table tennis. Pool tables inside the hotel are €2 and the games in the games hall are €1. The bars are good and easy enough to get a drink. The pool bar has self service for coke, fanta, sprite, nestea and a self service lager pump to limit queing times. The hotel shop has a little bit of everything, souveniers, beers and snacks and some things in there are a little pricey other things are the same price as on the streets, thats if you take the short bus ride to the shops for €1.55 which we did a couple of mornings. The beach is a 15 minute stroll away also which we hit a couple of times from 3:30pm onwards. My only gripe was the wifi was a little hit and miss but this is the case in most of the all inclusive hotels i've stayed in. Overall we had a fantastic holiday at a fantastic hotel. The children loved every minute of it especially the beach club and we wouldnt hesitate in booking it again for next year. More

Overnight stay with grandkids

The room 541 was excellent, very large and spacious. Although on first impression looking out of the glass covered lift it looked like a scene from a prison. The reason we stayed was for the children's pools, slides and attractions. We were not dissapointed, although had quite a long walk over a bridge to get to the main water park it was excellent and being all inclusive meant we didn't have to keep dipping in our pockets.. Food was fine and plenty of it. Could eat anywhere anytime and drinks included. The main stage area had the usual kids club type entertainment, loud and large. A game of bingo paid 150 euro for line and 350 euro for full house.kept the Mrs happy. Felt that children were being left to roam and run about as much as they wanted, fairly dark at night with a very large pool without any barriers. Food was very much an all inclusive set up. But it was ok and plentiful. To me it was Butlins Abroad. A good set up, but it was at a price. £331 for one night for four. Felt as though one night was enough, wouldn't like to do a week or more.More

Ok but not fantastic

Accommodation tired and not cleaned regularly. Tea and coffee in room available on arrival then never replaced, we were told "this is only for particular rooms" at £4500 for 1 week it really isn't much to expect a couple of sachets of cheap coffee daily. Food was ok but not spectacular however across the bridge at the beach club the lunch was wonderful. Cannot fault the entertainment staff, they worked tirelessly from dawn to dusk. Enjoyed the holiday but would try somewhere smaller next time.More

Great week of family fun

It's hard to help people decide on their holiday because everyone wants different things from their holiday. We just wanted a quick flight, short transfer and good entertainment for our 2 & 5 year olds and lots of sun. The holiday village gave us all that and more. We arrived early and our room was ready, water in the fridge and very clean throughout. We booked our a le carte restaurant evenings as we checked in as we'd read that they get booked up early. The girls were in the pool all day everyday and loved it. All the things going on were perfect for them around the pool such as zorbing, inflatables, pool party dancing were all great and done so well by the reps. You do need to be up early for a space in the shade but I got up at 0700hrs everyday and got the same sunbeds all week. The food was great, breakfast is served on the grounds as is evening meal but lunch is over the road and about a ten minute walk at the beach club. If you don't fancy the walk then the snack bar by the pool is great for pizza, burger, pasta, salad, hot dog and chips but after a few days you do need to change it up. The beach club was great for our little ones but any bigger and I think they'd need more. You have to be 1.2m to use the rubber rings on the one slide and wave pool and everything else was aimed at little ones, great for our two. The evening entertainment was amazing, but again for younger ones, up to about 12 I'd say. The reps were great and so lively and funny. The live and loud show really was a hit and for two hours from 7pm till 9pm our girls were transfixed to the stage. Only down side it the whole holiday was the beach was a bit poor and idiots letting their kids poo in the pool and ruining everyone's fun while the lifeguards closed and clean it for an hour!! Definitely recommend it to people with young onesMore
