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.

Still here at hoilday village and feel that it would be right to write a review, this hotel or complex is stunning , the rooms are big clean and has everything you need even a little kitchen, the food is lovely plenty of choice , food all day , the pool area are stunning and the beach club has amazing views, if you have children this hotel is perfect, it's very safe and lots to do for children, not much for adults but myself and sister just wanted a weeks break, the weather is hot in the day but it's cold at night , very cold. All the staff are friendly and will go out of their way for you. Even though are hoilday hasn't ended yet , we had a lovely time and would definitely return , and would definitely recommend this complex More

bath and shower

I have just come back with my friend and we are in our early 80ts. The shower is in the bath but there were no handles to hold on to or rubber bath mat to stand on. So when you had used the soap it made it slippy. The rest of the hotel was good.More

Very good but room for improvement

I've based this review on cost versus quality. Price wise we got a good deal. I traveled as part of a family party with 3 adults, a toddler and an infant. We all stayed in one room with a double bedroom and infant cot, and pull out sofa bed which can be used as two singles or a double bed. The room is plenty big enough for a cot and the cot provided was a high quality travel cot far better than I've had elsewhere. The room had a small kitchen with microwave, fridge, sink, kettle and was stocked with plates and cups which was handy when you have milk etc.. to store. The place is very large and has an open atrium making it feel spacious and every room has a balcony or terrace. There are two arcade areas, a cinema room that shows football, 3 kids clubs and a creche for under 3's,an Irish bar, piano bar, outside snack area, indoor swimming pool with kids and adult only sessions, pools at the hotel and the beach area (small water park), and 2 a la carte restaurants plus much more. Overall there is a lot more than normal to do and the entertainment is good. If you have under 3 year olds the creche is fee paying but there is a 12-12.30 session for stay and play which is free. The soft play area also opens allowing smaller children in between 6.15 and 7pm every day but Wednesday. There's also a small play area near the pool with 3 slides. The rooms are decorated to a good standard and the TV shows C Beebies as well as normal English terrestrial channels. The ones on the right as you come out of reception back onto a train line but the trains stop during the night so it's not too bad. The good points were:- Decent choice of food Good entertainment Water park with limited slides but enough to keep younger children entertained Great kids facilities In the main great staff (especially Connor and Niels (sorry if I've spelt that incorrectly)) Indoor swimming area for those colder days Good choice of drinks although we preferred the cocktail choice in the waterpark to that at the hotel Rooms seemed well sound proofed Great TV choice to keep the kids entertained when the wake up before breakfast Plenty of highchairs/buggy parks etc.. Great at topping up bottles with milk etc.. Poll towels meaning less to pack The pull out beds are good quality Childrens food area Points for improvement:- Cleaning in the rooms, the patio was dirty making my daughter filthy when she crawled out there, plus dusty shelves etc.. Another holidaymaker suggested this was due to overworking the maids Some areas could just do with better upkeep Some staff seemed disinterested and sat in corners chatting rather than welcoming parents and children to their groups Rooms that you cannot lock from the inside (a nightmare with an exploring 2 year old who escaped more than once). Reception will give you a wedge, to wedge it shut but it doesn't take long for kids to figure that one out Safe prices seemed very expensive (40 Euros for a fortnight) The lunch is in the waterpark area, so you have to walk out of the hotel, up a spiral walkway, across a bridge, back down a spiral walkway, through part of the park, back upstairs to go for lunch if you are having a day at the hotel, or eat a snack instead The lifts in the hotel and waterpark are very small. Meaning if you have a double buggy it's a tight fit, I ripped the hoods off virtually every time I went in. If you have a double buggy that doesn't fit through a normal door I think you probably wouldn't get in the lifts at all. Top points:- Wedges can be requested from reception to wedge the door from the inside to stop exploring kids The area is on a hill so no good for those with walking difficulties who like to do short walks outside If you have walking issues you can go out of the hotel and buzz yourself in at the waterpark to prevent you having to go up and over the bridge. The bars will happily fill bottles with milk There are nappies, formula, wipes etc.. sold in the hotel but they aren't cheap so pack them or go to a local shop instead Taxi's are parked right outside the hotel during the day (not sure about at night) Overall I was impressed with the hotel. I haven't given full marks mainly as the cleaning in the rooms needs improvement (possibly more resources if this is the issue), and they need to work to keep the place as good as it is by constantly titivating the paintwork etc... I would go back, especially in a few years when the children are a bit older and can join in more.More

Fabulous family break

First visit to the holiday village and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Plenty for the children to do no matter what age. Food was delicious from sushi to chocolate fountains! Salad bar plentiful and always lots for the little one (22 months) to eat. Hotel isn't in resort centre but bus stop outside and if you enjoy a good walk, both fuengerola and benalmadena are do-able. Will definitely return! More
