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.

Excellent Holiday

We travelled here 3-10 October 2014. Quick transfer from airport to hotel. Check in took ages as loads of us arrived at same time. We were allocated room 337. Absolutely fab views and I loved standing on the balcony as the sun came up overlooking the sea and the Beach Club and pool. Just brilliant. Room nice and big with separate kitchen, fully functional but we only used fridge for water. TV in room but we were never in long enough to switch on once. Every day was glorious sunshine. We hired a car for our week and went to Capobina beach (Andy's Beach) twice. We love it there. We visited the Marina lots in the evenings as hotel entertainment quite poor. We took taxi both ways so we could have a drink. €13 each way. We went in our car to the Butterfly sanctuary next to the Buddhist temple. Well recommended, totally awesome. We went twice into Mijas, once for dinner and once for donkey ride and a full colour characture of my daughter, €20 for A5 size. MIJAS is a must just so quaint, worth visiting for the views alone and walk around the ancient cobbled streets, but the donkeys for us and the culture up there is amazing. Snack bar by pool okay for a ham n cheese toasty and tub of ice cream. Flies round the food put me off and nearby seating area not too clean! The Beach Club was just fab and we had a great time there. Bar staff and all the staff there were friendly. The restaurant was closed when we went but you could buy pizzas and other snacks which were all tasty. All kept clean and views magnificent. The cave with waterfalls we loved to swim in. Yes the water is freezing but you get used to it!! We took our own towels I can't be bothered with hiring a towel and it makes your subbed easier to spot when your towel stands out!. Can't fault the buffet main restaurant. Vast selection of hot and cold foods morning and night and with a cooked breakfast every day who needs lunch? The choice was A1, they would cook omelettes and pancakes to order, chocolate fountain twice in the week which my daughter loved. Would not hesitate in recommending this hotel. Your holiday is what you make it, having the best weather helps everything. Make your own entertainment if your not happy with Bingo which we weren't, or get a cab to the Marina. Jump on a bus and go into Fuengirola or Torremolinos. In summer go to the theme park, the water park, Selwo marine park, the fantastic zoo in fuengirola (we think best zoo we've been to, animals so well cared for, whole ambience great, like being in Animal Kingdom Disney). I can't say enough about this Country, resort and hotel. I have booked next year for the Polynesia next door cause I'm hoping will be a bit quieter than the Holiday Village in July and I want a room with a hot tub on my balcony so I can sit in there as I watch the sun go down!More

Good - as long as you're not a vegetarian

This hotel has sop much going for it it's just a shame it let itself down in the food department. I'll start with the positives first; the rooms are a great size with huge bathrooms (double sink, full size bath, double shower). They're also really quiet and kept really clean. The kids entertainment was fab, they loved it and the variety on offer for things to do during the day was also excellent, loads of pools, no scramble for getting good sunbeds etc. Next positive was the location, really close to the airport so a quick transfer in a taxi is cheap. Now the downside, the food. By the end of two weeks I was hungry and annoyed, as a veggie you don't expect much choice and that's fine, but you do expect some choice and these guys had literally no idea, they threw meat and fish in everything, we couldn't even make our own salads or pasta dishes because they'd garnish everything with meat or fish. They had a vegetarian corner but usually this contained fish. We raided our concerns with the first choice rep about half way through the holiday but nothing changed. We just ended up filling up at breakfast time and then hoping for the best. Even in the other restaurants the choice was limited and they seemed to only provide the same stuff they were already serving in the buffet restaurant just served fresh instead of having to serve yourself. If I remember rightly when we went to the mexican there wasn't a single vegetarian main course available so we just had starters. The choice if you ate meat looked good but I can't comment on whether it tasted good or not obviously. In short - if they had better vegetarian options I'd go back but there's no way I'd endure going hungry again for the price this place costs.More

Amazing holiday/resort

My friend and I stayed at this holiday village at the beginning of September and it's safe to say we weren't disappointment! The holiday was so beautiful and big with so much to do and across the bridge to other side of the road was a massive water pool bit! There were pools, slides, sun beds in the pool, waterfalls and more! It really was amazing!! It over looked the beautiful sea and you could see other parts of Spain along the coast! 5* The food was great despite the fact that I had an upset tummy during the holiday... But I think that's because I ate down thing that didn't agree with me. With that being said, my friend and I had a trip arranged for the following day but due to me being up all night unwell we were unable to go! The travel rep gave us our money back and couldn't do enough for me! We went on a couple of trips during our stay! The hotel isn't close by the centre but there are busses outside and they are very cheap! Only takes a few minutes to either towns! We went to the dolphin park which I can definitely recommend! We did the personal 121 experience and it was brilliant! We went to the crocodile park which again was amazing and I would definitely recommend this too! This holiday resort is perfect to stay in and I was amazed by how much there was to do both at the resort and the available excursions! If your looking for a break away with the kids or just going away with a partner or friend this hotel caters to all! Entertainment was good! They work very hard to provide entertainment through out the week! Overall this was a brilliant hotel and brilliant destination!More

Great holiday

Stayed at the Holiday Village Hotel at the end of July, 2 adults, 1 teenager and 1 10 year old. The check in was quick and our room was already available even though it was early morning. Good sized room, clean and good sized balcony. The beds are a little too hard but thats just our opinion. We really liked the food, lots of choice, ate at both the mexican and italian which was fine but prefered the buffet. The resteraunt at the beach club was great, enjoyed eating lunch there most days. We mostly stayed at the beach club, we always found sun beds and the different pools were great. The aqua beds were good and the slide was fun but you have to pay to hire the rings which is slighlty annoying. We ventured out of the complex a few times, Benalmadena marina worth a visit and the cable car trip is good, slightly unnerving but the views from the top are great. Easy and cheap to get around by bus or taxi. Evening entertainment was ok, special mention to Rich, he made us laugh. Didnt use kids club etc so can't comment. Overall a good family hotel, good food, great weather, would recommend. More
