If you're looking for a fantastic family holiday in Benalmadena then look no further than the Holiday Village Costa del Sol.
Facilities in the Holiday Village Costa Del Sol are second to none. The main lagoon-like pool is central to the complex and home to all of the daytime activities. Here there is also an indoor pool, mini cinema and golf driving range. A short stroll over the road bridge brings you to the hotel's Beach Club. Here there's everything from slides and hidey-holes to splash parks and a wave pool - there's even a splashtastic pirate ship to play on. For grown-ups, there are plenty of sun loungers for precious sunbathing time and Jacuzzi pools to help you unwind. Not limited to water-fuelled fun, the Beach Club also has a tennis court, football pitch, mixed-sports court and mini golf.
Daytimes are never dull with a huge animation programme packed full of fun and games. Circus workshops, treasure hunts and raft-building challenges are all on the agenda, and there are fab family theme days and charity splashathons that run throughout the year. There's even a foam party or two thrown into the mix. There are loads of activities for the whole family to try, such as archery, mini golf and paddle tennis.
Pool-lovers can enter the "water wacky races" or splash around on giant inflatable water rollers, whereas adrenaline seekers can attempt the leap of faith on the high-rope Arial Adventure assault course. And whoever invented basketball on a trampoline, aka Aeroball, is a genius. With so many cool things to do, table tennis and other poor old holiday favourites are left to gather dust in the games room.
One of the biggest draws of the Holiday Village Costa Del Sol is the excellent kids' clubs run by UK-qualified First Choice staff. With programmes tailored to specific age groups, from 0-2-year-old Twinkle Stars to 16-year-old 'Escape!', all kitted out the latest toys, games and WiFi, even the most reluctant of kids will come back grinning from ear to ear.
Not just for kids, there are plenty of things for mums and dads too. There's a fully equipped fitness suite and a spa for a spot of pampering. You can unwind in the Jacuzzi or relax in the sauna, then treat yourself to a beauty treatment or two before going straight from spa to bar.
On an evening there's a mini disco followed by quality shows from the highly professional Holiday Village entertainment team. Not just your average so-so singing and dancing, these guys are super talented and give it their all to keep your heads laughing, toes tapping and hands clapping in appreciation. There's an onsite Irish Pub and Piano Bar and late-night kids clubs too if you're not quite ready for bed after the show.
With all of the Holiday Villages, flights, transfers, meals and local drinks are all thrown in as part of the All Inclusive experience – so you won't have to worry about the kids asking for that second serving of dessert. Breakfast is buffet-style, with a range of cereals, yoghurts and hot foods to give you energy for all of the day's activities. There are pool bars serving up tasty snacks for lunch, and on an evening there is a buffet-style restaurant. There's so much choice here, even the fussiest of eaters will find something to their taste. There's also a kids' tea time, for those with droopy lids after all of the excitement. If you fancy something different, there are two a-la-carte restaurants on site, an Italian and a Tex-Mex, which you can visit once each per stay. Simply book one day in advance.
All rooms in the Costa Del Sol Holiday Village are big, bright and stylish. You have the choice of an apartment, accommodating up to five people, or a family room. Apartments have a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, a balcony and air-con as standard, and family rooms have a balcony and air-con.
New for 2014, all of the Holiday Village properties will have free Wi-Fi access, perfect for uploading envious holiday snaps to Instagram.
It's just 30 minutes by coach from Malaga airport to the Holiday Village Costa Del Sol, which is great for fidgety bottoms. Located on the coast between Fuengirola and Benalmadena, you're ideally located for visiting the two. The local bus service that runs from just outside the complex makes getting around easy peasy.
