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.

Just arrived back today.. I have been on holiday to this resort for the past 12 years always self catering or in hotels nearer to the harbour and was looking forward to a weeks all inclusive for a change as with two children it was a great price. First impressions were very good,rooms spacious and clean,overlooking pool area and good size balconies and the hotel itself is very impressive with fantastic pools and good children's entertainment,reps constantly offering activities around pool area and the piano bar is great ,staff there very helpful and happy.. My gripe is after two fun days we all got gastro which was awful,my two year old vomited in middle of dining hall which was awful to us and people around us,i have to say the cleaner in our room Letitia was great as we constantly needed new bedding and towels and she always cleaned with a smile..unfortunately it went down hill from there as we all got it and we were so bad none of us could move from bathroom and when I rang reception I asked for a bottle of water to be sent up as my two year old needed fluids desperately,it took them 8 hours to bring it up and in the mean time my 12 year old went to shop for us for a bottle and vomited in lift on way back,it was awful and upsetting for us all and we then found out from other guests that it had been rife,some people even had doctor out and given them injections to stop the sickness.i can only put it down to the food as I did have my reservations about the snack bar which we only visited the once as it was outside ,uncovered and children were freely putting hands inside bread roll boxes..the restaurant was clean and food was great but again too quick a turnaround between seatings and I always had to wipe down high chairs as they had not been cleaned.. As we left today a notice went up on dining room to advise that there would be a 15 min break between seatings for them to clean room,which for us too late and I personally would advise antibacterial hand gel when entering as they do on a cruise liner... Overall we had a bad experience which was unfortunate as I loved this complex at the beginning but be aware 100 euros for doctor call out and you are not covered by your insurance for it as the doctor told a guest is a hefty price to pay for hygiene,and after all you may be be clean but who else is .........More

This is what you call value for money

Arrived Sunday 7th sept. 4 adults 2children,the reception staff were very helpful and friendly,took about 10 mins to check in and were given rooms next to each other, the apartments were very spacious and spotless cleaned every day, kitchen there if you fancy a quick brew when you get up.the main restaurant and the beach side restaurant the food and choice is very very good all fresh and plenty to drink from beer wine and every soft drink you can name.the pool areas were all exceptional from baby to adult ,plenty staff always around including life guard.the holiday village is built around children but plenty of chilled areas for grown ups to have cold beer and chat.there is kids activities galore so they will never be bored.overall for the size of the village it is managed to a very high standard and could not find a fault , all staff very pleasant and helpful, would not hesitate returning in the future or recommend to family and friends.More

Holiday Hell

Just returned at 15.00 hrs today from holiday world resort after 7 awful days. The problems are not with the staff, who are very pleasant and helpful, but the are many health issues at this hotel and it revolves around the fact that the meals are all buffet service. However there is no effort made by the staff to use hand sprays or gels or offer them to all people when going into dining room.As a result my whole party 4adults 2 children (2&12yrs res)were laid up for 4 days of our holiday in our rooms because of GASTROENTERITIS,maybe it was the food but I honestly believe that it was down to lack of stringent hand spray enforcement for all people.I have been travelling to Spain for nearly 40 yrs and I have also cruised for many years with never any problems,so I feel I can comment reliably. I found the First Choice Staff to be totally uninterested when I raised these problems with them but they did ask if our party wanted to go to a party last night after I had asked them if they knew there was enteritis in the hotel? Our age group ranged from 68 to 2 years of age and we are pretty laid back when on holiday but I could honestly not recommend this hotel.More

Bill M,

The truth.... Great Family Holiday.

So after feeling very nervous after reading recent reviews leading up to our holiday I was so pleased that we had a great holiday with our 2 year old son. The hotel is big, so if you're looking for a small and homely hotel, this is not for you, but we loved the space and variety on offer. From the moement we arrived the hotel is set is lovely grounds and well presented and looks very welcoming and inviting, the reception staff we very welcoming and helpful. We arrived fairly late, so the staff were kind enough to have dinner for us all in the fridge which was a packed microwave meal and yes the packet did state a minute but all that's needed is a bit of common sense to pop it in for a bit longer, the quality was ok, we were hungry so it was fine. also fridge had crackers, butter and two large bottles of water, which was an extra bonus. The room was much larger than we expected and was not basic at all, TV had English channels which was great for my son in the mornings watching his favourite program on cbeebies. ( ask for the remote control at check in, it's free) . Rooms were very clean ( we were in room 541) 5th floor had great view and even though we were oboe the late night evening singer, it was not noticeably noisy, it was a bonus and noise did not effect our son at all. It was so peaceful in the morning, we were waking up 9ish which was lovely. The hotel is busy, but no area felt to busy.... It that makes sense there is a lot of people staying in the hotel, but it's very we'll organise. They ask you for a dining time when checking in , but don't worry at all about this as they don't ask you for you name, room number and we had a 6;30 sitting and many times due to us having a late lunch we ate at 8ish . The hotel is very flexible and always aiming to please. People who have comments to make on this should just ask and speak with staff if this is an issues. Food was excellent such a variety and the best all inclusive food we have had, stayed in 5 different 5 star European all inclusives, there something for everyone, especially the kiddies, fresh fruit, pastries, meats/cheese to fry up and cook whilst you wait omelette which was lovely. Lunch was again great every day we had lunch in the beach club as main hotels bars only serve basic lunch burgers/ chips, but beach club have a large hot/cold buffet which was lovely, fantastic variety each day and as another review mentioned desserts a heaven. I really do not understand all the comments on the distance to the beach club... It's a lovely 4 minute still on its own private pathway all buggy friendly and our two year old loved the bridge being able to see all the cars and lorries the beach club and a slightly better clientele. The kiddies pool/ splash pool was everything so close by which is good for a nearly toilet trained toddler. The pools were great and not once all holiday did I see any pool get closed due to kiddies accident, but maybe at the main pools, which would not surprise with first impressions of some families. Entertainment was ok , but totally as expected for an all inclusive. Yes, if you want to buy your kiddies slush puppies, hire a large ring for the water slide you will need to pay a small fee... But again as expected, so surprised with comments on this. So in summary we had a great time, fantastic value for money and please please ignore all the negative comments, this is a great hotel, staff want you to enjoy yourself, so if you are in the mindset to enjoy yourself you will.... Remembering what you paid !! We would recommend and certainly return in the future. Thank you to all at the HVMore
