Great Things About Holiday Villages…
Free Kids' PlacesYou get plenty of bang for your buck at Holiday Villages, and we’ve lined up free kids’ places to help your pennies go even further. Take your pick from our resort line-up, and your first child could go free.
DAYTIME ACTIVITIESFrom the Twin Tracks inflatable water course to hamster ball-style Water Walkers, fun-filled days are our bread and butter.
AERIAL ADVENTURESHave you got the mettle to take on one of our high ropes courses? They’re a Holiday Villages staple, and come with highly trained teams to rig you up in a harness and guide you along the lofty course.
CHARITY DAYSOur charity days turn frolicking in the pool into a fun form of fundraising. There are challenges and games to get involved in, all in the name of raising money for good causes.
HIGHLY TRAINED TEAMOur team’s right on the ball when it comes to service, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They love getting to know our guests, and build up such a bond that you’ll think of them as friends.
Splash Parks & PoolsAs well as the best pools around, you'll find mini-slides, flumes and fountains at most Holiday Villages, and even the odd pirate ship at some.
Evening EntertainmentProfessional UK entertainers tread the boards during our nightly shows. You can expect song-filled pantomimes, get-up-on-stage shows and 80s-inspired pop concerts.
First Choice Kids' ClubKids’ Clubs are present and correct at all our Holiday Villages. Tots and teens, from 3 to 15, can join in with a load of sessions – most of them are free, too.
AcademiesExpert-run academies let your little ones realise their potential. Whether you’re a Messi in the making, or a future Michael Phelps, you can take your pick from Football, Swim and Stage Academies.
Free Wi-FiAll hotels in this range have free Wi-Fi available, so you can stay connected while you're away.
Twin Tracks is the latest addition to our wacky water inflatables and perfect for ages 6 and up. It’s an air-filled Total Wipeout-style course for the pool that two people can tackle at the same time.
These huge inflatable orbs are exactly as fun as they look. They’re made for those aged 5 and older, and you’re guaranteed a tumble or two as they roll across the pool.
Race your mates on the pool’s surface in these inflatable tubes – aimed at energetic over 6s. If you like these, you’ll love our Water Walkers, too.
Ages 6 and up can take to the pool in our inflatable canoes for games, races and general messing around in the water.
All Holiday Villages have a high ropes course, where we rig you up in a harness so that you can swing, climb and walk across all types of routes. Some height restrictions apply, but they’re generally open to everyone over 6, even mums and dads – so no chickening out.
When we say we’ve got every type of sport going, we’re not kidding. We’ve even got aeroball. That’s basketball on a trampoline, in case you’re wondering.
Robin Hood might have started the trend, but these days it’s the Avengers’ Hawkeye who rocks a bow and arrow. Ages 6 and up can perfect their skills at our expert-led archery sessions.
Show off your tricks at a family street soccer skills session, or compete for bragging rights at a head-scratching HV Quiz. Classics like rounders and crazy golf fill in the gaps.
The HV Live after-dark antics are run by our team of professional UK entertainers. Expect kids’ discos, Saturday morning TV-style game shows, competitions and top-quality shows seven days a week.
Ready to meet Gizmo, Doobley and Whatsit in the land of Whatchamacallit? The Widgets are 100% exclusive to First Choice. You’ll see them at our live shows, meet and greets, and around the hotels.
NIGHTLY LIVE SHOWS

Our team days put you head-to-head with our Holiday Villages team. They crop up once a week, and involve water polo matches, games of five-a-side, and races on the wobbly Twin Tracks inflatable course. The night-time team show – where the focus switches to singing and dancing – is the cherry on top,

Peace Of Mind
Holiday Villages Kids’ Clubs are run to UK standards, so staff have advanced DBS security checks and First Aid training. There’s a strict sign-in and sign-out system, too.
First Choice Kids' Club
Our crèches are run to UK standards, so Crèche Reps are NVQ Level 3-qualified, DBS-checked and First Aid-trained.

If you’re just after a buggy, we’ve got lightweight pushchairs with canopies. Book it – upfront or when you arrive – from £20 per stay.
Neymar wannabes aged 4 to 16 are put through their paces by FA or UEFA-qualified coaches on a 2, 3 or 4-day course. The 2-day course starts at £33.

12 to 15-year-olds
This one’s not a kids’ club – it’s strictly for teenagers. The Escape! space features a Wi-Fi-enabled chill-out area, where teens can kick back away from parents and little ones. When they’re done lounging around, there’s plenty of high-tempo stuff waiting in the wings, like Water Walkers – human hamster balls for rolling on the water.
Stuff for teens
You’ve got at least two à la carte restaurants, whichever Holiday Village you go for. Lots of them are themed, so expect things like Italian, Mexican or Chinese. You can eat in these venues as part of your All Inclusive set-up – just reserve a table when you arrive in resort.
