These All Inclusive Costa del Sol holidays are all beach, no sweat
With meals and activities provided, and flight times of no more than three hours from the UK, all you have to do is decide where you’d like to stay among Costa del Sol’s top locales.
And conveniently many of Costa del Sol’s best All Inclusive resorts, like Torremolinos and Benalmadena, are within 30 minutes from Malaga Airport, with transfers often included.
You could take a modern beach break to Benalmadena, known for its popular old town and marina, a 10-kilometre beach and the Tivoli World theme park. Some All Inclusive hotels here give free access to the Beach Club waterpark.
Or there’s Torremolinos – a lively resort with six excellent beaches, loads to do come evening time and a large waterpark and further theme parks. Its biggest and best hotels provide far more than just the holiday essentials, with vast food, drink and entertainment choices.
Sitting side-by-side, the only thing that splits the long beaches of Torremolinos and Benalmadena is the latter’s Blue Flag marina. Together they have 15-kilometres of sand and you can choose from fun central strips like Torremolinos’ La Carihuela Beach or venture further along the shore for peaceful beaches.
For example, Torrevigia Beach is south of Benalmadena and a quiet Blue Flag number. Or families will appreciate the activities at Torre Bermeja Beach, which is close to the centre of Benalmadena and has a beach football pitch, plus boat and watersport rentals.
Fully refurbished for April 2017, the Club Hotel Riu Costa del Sol triples up with three entertainment programmes – daytime, RiuFit and evening – along with three restaurants and three pools. During the day, top activities include lounging by the pool or getting fit with beach volleyball just a skip away at the waterfront. The three restaurants on offer here are a buffet spot plus two a la carte eateries dishing up Italian and Andalusian cuisine. Drinks are mixed at a whopping four bars, including a 24-hour sports bar, plus a pool bar.
The hotel's theme is carried throughout the hotel decor and with straw parasols by the large lagoon pool – you'll forget you're in Spain in no time at all. Among the five places to eat is, of course, a Polynesian restaurant, plus Oriental cuisine, a buffet restaurant and a snack bar at the Beach Club. Sports and activities are seemingly endless here, with water polo, mini-golf, archery and tennis on the menu. Plus the free shuttle bus will take you to the Beach Club waterpark nearby.
The sister hotel to the Polynesia, it's here you'll find the Beach Club waterpark, complete with a giant elephant squirting water and tube rides. The hotel hits big in terms of All Inclusive offerings, including five places to eat. Kids' clubs range from newborn to teens in themed club rooms, plus there's a ball pool fun house, a clown academy and wizard workshops. The grounds are dotted with sports pitches and come evening the HV Live programme provides party nights, karaoke, cabaret and more.
