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.

Poor night life for a great place

Visited here with our 4yr old daughter and 6mnth old son on the 16th of october. Was so amazed by the size of the place at first. Really clean place and the weather was excellent bit to hot for my son though. We used the kids club and the creche and can say its the best ive ever seen. They work really hard to keep the kids happy. Nightlife is awful. Theres a piano bar with a different type of singing on every night so no good for kids. Theres a show put on by the holiday reps that is the same cringeworthy thing everynight and then they put bingo on for the adults at 9pm with a load of coca cola and cake filled kids running around like a mad house with nothing to do. The pool is freezing we all ended up with a cold on the last day but the size of it and the pool bar are great for kids. Theres also astro turf around the pool and ive never seen this before but its a great idea. The food you couldnt fault it was beautiful and the service by the staff was excellent. I would return here though but the nightlife is a big problem at this resort. More

Neil P,

Nice hotel

We traveled here on the 5th October 2014 for 1 week all inclusive , hotel was nice the swimming pools were great including the mini water park on site .. If your looking for a holiday just to stay in the hotel then this place is for you if you have kids mind you .. The hotel doesn't really offer much to do at night.. Just kids club ;/ ... We wanted to go out of the complex a few nights but walking is a no no .. Everything is too far away to walk.. so we had to travel by bus with my 5 month old baby in the heat and wile nobody offered me a seat on the bus I had to stand :( .. The food in the hotel was very basic ( same stuff every night just about) the weather was 28oc every day bar the 2 last days it rained was a nice holiday but wouldn't visit hear again due to the distance from places and lack of entertainment on the evenings .. The Italian resturants on site was horrendous the pizza was just pure grease both myself and partner felt ill the whole next day ;( the Mexican restaurant was ok but nothing special but what do you expect when it's free Hotel was clean and staff were very friendly.. I'd advise if you didn't want to sit around a pool that was busy take a short walk over to the water park attached to the hotel .. No food is served there that's in the all inclusive but drink are starved free we went there everyday a lot more quiter and atmosphere was better over there more relaxedMore

Gemma M,

Lovely family holiday, beautiful resort

Best holiday we have had as a family so far, food choices were very good and there were a few different places to eat. The only one thing that we got caught out on was the water park and having to pay for the rubber rings in order to be able to go on the rideMore

from 2 senior citizens

holiday village costa del sol.this is a review from 2 senior citizens. we took this all inclusive holiday deal on the 5th to the 12th of october as we got it half price with baggage and 2 way transfers knowing the area we new we could travel by bus along the coast and fares are cheap. now back to hotel we were checked in very quickly by friendly staff arm band on and away to our room. we got apartment number 14 and were very happy with such a spacious place all rooms very large and very large balcony saying this the view from balcony never bothers us as we are out all day. the living room had a large wardrobe,table and 4 chairs,sofa bed and drawers.bedroom also had large wardrobe with 2 large beds and bedside funny as it sounds i only looked in kitchen a couple of times but saw it had microwave,kettle and was well equipped my friend made tea for herself every morning and was happy using it. the restaurant was very busy with 2 sittings we went for the earlier one both for breakfast and evening meals. the only problem we had in there was getting to the food and drinks at times it was hard work. you had to sometimes go the long way round to get to the food not helped at times by buggies blocking a pathway there is a notice to say not to take them in there but if the baby is to small to sit in high chair its ok with me. the bar looks out onto an area with fountains and running water so we got drinks and watched the little kids playing was the best part of day for me never stopped laughing at there antics.just a quick word on the beach side you have to cross by a bridge from the village which crosses the dual roads.on other side are swimming pools shops and snack bar all being part of village i will finish off by saying personally i would not go in school holidays but for out of season i would go back.More
