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.

Best holiday ever! Highly recommended

Just returned and whole experience was superb! From the huge selection of food in buffet restaurant to the snack bars, helpfulness and friendliness of staff, as an all inclusive the generosity of the drinks, the holiday village was heavenly. Clean spacious inside and out, family orientated, staff best I've experienced ever. Worth every penny of the reasonable price paid. Would highly recommend and certainly return. Fabulous through and through!!!! 10/10More


Poor food, miles away from anywhere and not worth the money:'(:'(

Me, my husband and our three children age 14,9 and 2 stayed at the holiday village from the 7th to the 14th of October. Check in was easy and we're welcomed by nice friendly staff! Our room was on the second floor of the hotel, room was spotless, bright air conditioning worked well and very spacious!pool was freezing but pool area was clean and plenty sun beds.we were all inclusive but the food was dreadful really bad especially at the snack bar! Every single thing was freezing cold!rolls for burgers, hotdogs and sandwiches was stale and salad was not fresh! There was a very large amount of flies around the snack bar and outside bar and it was very off putting!the drinks were ok just the usal one local beer and cheap spirits!when you are all inclusive you get to go to the Mexican and Italian restaurants once each during the stay, the Italian was fine but the Mexican was absolutely revolting!my husband had steak but there was no way it was steak!it was full of fat and jelly! !! The main buffet restaurant wasn't much better! The salad bars were ok and the sweets were nice but the mains were rubbish! The fish had no taste atall and the meat was very chewy and tasteless!the breakfast was ok! The rooms were cleaned daily and they were really nice.the hotel was also really nice and very clean. The water park over the bridge on the other side of the road is nice!you can't eat there though unless you pay but you can drink with all inclusive? ? Strange!! The kids clubs are good but certain ones you have to pay which I think is terrible when you pay a fortune to go there!! Right location! !! This hotel is not in benalmadina! !! It costs £15 euros to get to McDonald's in benalmadina it costs £20 euros to go to the marina! We spent about £200 euros in taxis!! One day we walked in to benalmadina but it took one and a half hours!!! There is nothing near the hotel! The shop in the hotel is expensive and sells inflatable toys for the pool but you are NOT allowed to use them in the pools!!! You can get buses around the corner from the hotel but the buses are packed and sometimes they just drive past! The kids entertainment was rubbish! It was in a dark room and they put dvds on for them then have a disco for half an hour then a game of bingo! The kids entertainment in haven is better than here! Very disappointing! They have a little games room that my younger two enjoyed! But then again it was more money after paying nearly £3000 to get there! We liked fuingerola and also the marina in benalmadina! We definitely wouldn't return to the holiday village! Far to far out, rubbish food and lack of kids entertainment! More

Allison P,

Great Holiday

We had booked this holiday as a last minute break, we were a little apprehensive as we wanted a relaxing holiday. We took advantage if the beach club which was far quieter than the main pool. We used the VIP area which is well worth it in my opinion. The food was great & service great. Couldn't fault the reps who are very helpfull & Jorge in the spa. Train station only a 10 minute walk were you can visit all of the coastline. Well worth a visit to this hotel & hopefully we will be returning. More

Very relaxing holiday

We travelled here two 25 year olds and our 20 month old son. We have stayed at posher and worse hotels in the past but this hotel had a nice homely feel. Apartment. Every room in our apartment was large, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, sitting area and also balcony. Room was cleaned every day by happy and friendly staff. Food. Great selection of food each mealtime each day. Yes there is repetition on things such as burgers, pizza, chips ect but main meals were changed each lunch and evening meal, never seen the same thing twice. Our son is a really fussy eater and wouldn't eat much all week but for children who aren't fussy, there was plenty to choose from. Drinks were great, help yourself and also bar service. Pools. Loads of pools to choose from, from toddler pools to ones with water features for the older kids. We missed one pool as we only found it on the last day but looked great for our son. It's over in the beach club and up the stairs when you first walk in the reception area. Entertainment. We didn't sit to watch any of the entertainment on the stage but looked good as we were passing. There is a stay and play from 12pm for half an hour in one of the crèche rooms which our son enjoyed if you don't want to leave your kids in the crèche they can still play with the toys for a while. There's also an arcade room with rides which you pay for but they only 1euro each. Soft play area is open from 6.15 to 7pm too which he loved too. There is also a little play park near the pool area for kids to play on. Location. Not much near to walk to, we did walk to the beach which was only about 10 minutes away as I needed headache tablets which the on site shop doesn't sell so remember to pack them just incase. The on site shop sells everything but these including nappies, mil, swimming toys ect. Bus stop right outside of hotel both sides,but we didn't know what to say as we don't know any Spanish so didn't bother but wish we visited Paloma park as the reviews look good. Really really good holiday, think if our son was a bit older it would have been perfect with all the entertainment and activities available, would defo go again or visit another holiday village.More

Great hotel

Just back from a week away with my other half. Hotel and rooms were spotlessly clean. Rooms were huge and well equipped and cleaned every day. Food was good, lots of choice and everything was tasty. Mix of prepared food and fresh cooked in front of you. We never struggled for something to eat (though desserts are a bit naff). Entertainment wasn't great tbh, but it's a matter of what you like, and it's end of season. Pool areas were very clean, loads of sun beds and beach club is great. Staff were great, very friendly and happy. We speak Spanish which may have helped, but everyone seemed to have a good impression. It is quite far from either Benalmadena or Fuengirola (taxi is around 10€ to either) but there's a bus every 30 mins. We rented a car for a few days and had no problem parking it at the hotel securely. One niggle was the plastic glasses, which we didn't like. But really not something to bother about overall. Would definitely recommend to others. More
