Holiday Village Manar

Huge pools, a waterpark, and a white-sand beach on the doorstep – this all-action family hotel has plenty to keep you busy.

This place has a first-class setting – right next door to a white-sand beach. Location aside, the big pull is the pool scene. There’s one for activities, another for relaxing, plus a waterpark with slides.

The hotel's a Holiday Village between April and October, so there’s a bumper line-up of activities – think sports like tennis and football, and extras like an Aerial Adventure course, and non-stop kids’ clubs.

Quite simply the best holiday we have ever been on, in every department: food, accommodation, facilities, staff, everything - I read quite a few poor reviews before we traveled so was quite worried but I needn't have been - the staff cannot do enough for you, the place was the cleanest I have ever seen, the food was very good, the First Choice reps were outstanding and of course we cannot forget to mention the irrepressible MOMO!!More

Great value!

I was torn over the rating of this hotel. I didn't know to give it a three star or a four. I decided on a four because of the great value it is. I stayed here with my daughter aged 3 and my partner. We had a kids den which was very large. There was no balcony though which is a massive shame as the view from the large windows we had was amazing! The food was really nice. The cakes were delicious. We after at night time and was given a drink, wristbands and told about the buffet that was ready now. The entertainment - My daughter enjoyed the kids nightly show thing they had on. Bingo every night after before the main show, so boring. I don't like bingo but there was a decent number of people playing it so i see why they continued to play it every night. We didn't really stay for the shows as it was too late for our daughter to stay up. BUT we would hear it in our room. It was so loud. My daughter did the swimming academy she went from not daring to put the head under the water to swimming without arm bands in a week! I couldn't believe it! Guy and Rick were fantastic! Mo Mo the life guard, he was such a laugh. The kids club was also a big hit with my daughter, thank you girls. Service was also another good point, all staff we came across was very friendly and helpful. We left here one week before the terror attack happened. I didn't feel it was appropriate to write a review at the time.More

Great family hotel

Lovely hotel set back from the beach with several outdoor pools to choose from - we visited Aug 14 and it was busy with young families but still plenty of room and no problem with sun beds - lots of entertainment on the go and something for everyone - food excellent great choice buffet style all inclusive. Our roo was in block 2 Manar family room overlooking beach with separate room for teenage son attached which he loved as he had own flat screen tv too. Beach beautiful and clean water sports paid activities/parasailing/banana rideMore

Lesley A,

Excellent. Staff brilliant cannot do enough for you

Nothing is too much trouble. Lovely hotel and surrounding. Brilliant beach. Cannot fault staff. We had a table with drinks waiting every night. Waiters always filling drinks up without having to ask. The staff really do make your holiday 100% better. Loved the beach and the beach bar was handy. Lovely out door entertainment area. Only bad thing is the area outside the gated compound. Not alot to do and shops all the same with pushy staff More
