Just back from a two week holiday at Holiday Village and had a great time! I have never written a review before but felt I had to on this occasion as reviews on this page had us seriously worried before our trip!
We arrived at holiday village late just before midnight! Check in was simple and quick as it was late but I know on some occasions, people need to wait a while on their room! This is because of the quick turnaround on busier days! I would not complain on waiting tho as I'd rather ensure the room was being cleaned! Don't forget this can happen at hotels in the UK and Ireland as well if you arrive early afternoon!
We had initially booked self catering but upgraded on arrival! This costs approx £40 per adult pet day and £23 per child! If you upgrade on your first day you can get an extra 10per cent discount!
I would recommend all inclusive as the hotel isn't really convenient to proper supermarkets unless you jump on the bus!!
You can order snacks from the pool bar and book into the Italian and Mexican at nights if you are self
catering tho! And then jump on the bus or take a taxi to benalmadena for dinner if ya wAnt to get out and about!
The all inclusive food is definitely of 4 star quality! The buffet restaurant in the hotel serves breakfast and dinner and then a buffet lunch is served in the restaurant in Beach Club restaurant! Some people don't seem to be aware of the buffet lunch and just eat the pool snacks which is really just chips, pasta, burgers, toasties, hotdogs etc!!
There is ample amount of dishes to choose from at the buffets and I would say that some peole lack the ability to create a meal from the range available and so choose to moan about what there is to choose from!! These same people prob cook processed oven meals at home and don't know what good fresh food is!!
Entertainment is totally geared towards families specifically the kids and the entertainment team are actually one of the most professional I have come across in all my years of going on Spanish holidays!!
Kids clubs are great and there are several sessions throughout the day for an hour and a half each! The activities are planned and structured and you can pick what suits your child best!! My son normally went to one session per day!
Ref the sickness that some people have faced- none of us got sick! Didn't really hear of many people getting sick so don't panic!! I think there is as much chance of you getting sick at home or anywhere else on holiday as there is here!! There are plenty of maids about cleaning the place day and night! Its some of the guests that are unhygienic not the hotel!!!
You'll enjoy this holiday if you want a family complex with lots for kids and are happy to relax
