We paid £318 for a family of four for the promotional holiday. We flew by EasyJet from Bristol - a convenient airport for us and the flights we were allocated worked well as we like arriving at our destination early. CLC booked a car for us to pick up from the airport which we thought ended up quite expensive as we had to upgrade in order to accomodate our luggage (extra 50 Euros for the week) and I don't feel that we overpack as we are always well within our baggage allowances.
Marina del Sol was not the sort of location that we would have chosen ourselves as it was off a busy road and Fuengirola is a much larger resort than we normally visit. However we had a most enjoyable holiday. The staff at the resort were really helpful - we were given a complimentary drink when we arrived and any questions that we had during the week were answered fully by the reception staff. The apartment we had was of a good standard and very well equipped including a welcome pack, washing machine, dishwasher and satelite TV. Lots of towels, toiletries etc in the bathroom. Everything was very clean. Not a huge amount to do on site but to be fair it was December. The heated pool by Zacs was nice and toasty and the children loved playing in it. The on site supermarket was useful when we did not feel like venturing into town to shop.
On the day of the sales presentation, we were lucky to have a lovely person called Frank who showed us around the site and also took us into Fuengirola to show us around there. The top end apartments that they show you are stunning - but make sure you do the sums to ensure that the package is a good deal for you and the way you like to holiday. We explained our reasons for not wanting to invest and these were accepted although we did have to sit through a sales spiel in the exhibition centre before we were allowed to leave. If you have already had to go to a presentation in the UK to claim your promotional holiday, be prepared for a lot of duplication at this point.
I would recommend the promotional holiday. I think that we were treated very fairly by CLC. Just don't sign up for club membership unless you are sure that you would use it enough to be of value to you.
