Holiday World Resort

TripAdvisor Review
Spain, Europe

This wonderful hotel is located just 5 minutes' walk from the beach in Benalmádena. Malaga Airport is conveniently close since it is just about 15 minutes’ drive from the property. The resort offers a gym and a spa with a range of treatments for guest relaxation. The marvellous outdoor pool area is the perfect scenery where to spend a nice and sunny evening sunbathing, resting under an umbrella or having a refreshing swim surrounded by a wonderful atmosphere. The property offers delicious food options and drinking alternatives. The rooms are decorated with soothing colours that create a comfortable and welcoming feeling. They are equipped with modern amenities to make each stay the most pleasant and unforgettable one.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Fantastic Family Holiday!

Review by Sarah_S_0409 Nottingham, United Kingdom

We visited the Holiday World resort end of May/June.

On arrival we were impressed with the swift check in. As we had arrived at 9pm the hotel had kindly left us plates of food in our fridge in case we were hungry.

We stayed in room 531 and had a fabulous view of the pool and the sea. The rooms are spacious and are equipped with a kitchen, large bathroom with separate bath and shower, front room with sofa bed and large bedroom...

There was access to the large balcony area from both the front room and bedroom.

Food is your usual All Inclusive. There was always plenty, everything was constantly replenished and the staff in the restaurant are brilliant and clearing plates or getting you a table quickly when you walk in. We enjoyed the food and always found something delicious to eat.

We also booked both the Italian and Burger restaurants at the resort. The food at both was amazing and the waiters and waitresses can’t do enough for you.

The pool is good and there are lots of brilliant activities run by the entertainment team. The lifeguards are very observant and constantly checking everyone is safe. Plenty of sun beds and shade if needed. The snack bar around the pool has all the usual hot and cold food along with ice cream and cakes. You can also purchase crisps and branded ice creams from the bar. The daily entertainment includes a pool party, quizzes, bingo and various inflatables for the children to have a go on.

The Waterpark was fun and the kids enjoyed going there. You can hire large rubber rings for the water slides. The restaurant there is also plentiful.

The evening entertainment is fabulous for the kids. The team are very friends, enthusiastic and energetic which keeps the children happy. There are different parts of the evening from the Widgets, PTY, dancing, quiz's and an evening show! It’s all based on the outdoor theatre and with the visual screen laying makes it very engaging.

We went to the beach and hired some very luxurious sun beds with thick cushions and a towel for €12 and worth every penny!

Overall this holiday was for kids and to keep them entertained which is exactly what it did. It is a clean, bright resort with food and drink available all day. We love our stay and would definitely return.

Enjoyed immensely

Review by RhiannonWilliams86 Plymouth, United Kingdom

Staff here are amazing, we enjoyed every minute of our 7 night stay - the on site Italian wasn’t great but the main restaurant was always well stocked with plenty for everyone and was delicious so it didn’t matter at all. The staff made the holiday, 110% care every time you saw them. I’d go back in a heartbeat it’s the best holiday I’ve had in a long long time!

Lovely place for families but not for solo

Review by 332nataliej Derby, United Kingdom

Lovely themed hotel for families, I didn't enjoy a solo stay due to lots of children..no problem with that but I travel in non school time to avoid it but because the hotel is far from the centre it's got every thing for children. Food really good and plenty of choice

I asked for a quiet room and they did give me this room 006 which was so peaceful but I think it was a disabled person..no shower head holder so I had to hold the shower over my head which wasn't good.

Beds comfy but made a lot of noise

Pool area was nice plenty of sunbeds but nit good condition very uncomfortable which left me with a bad back. There were pockets of rowdy groups of men that were not controlled by the hotel alot of swearing around children, embarrassing because they were Scottish and British.

Room cleaned daily.

A long walk to the beach and hotel on a hill..I caught a bus into town 1.60 euros which was great, had a taxi coming back 15 euros which is very expensive so I didn't do that again. Restaurant in the hotel but nothing near by to have a change of scenery.

Sadly wouldn't stay again but some nice features for families.

Constructive Reveiw.

Hotel 3.5 Star. Apartment decent, Staff were beautiful, Catering for all diets. Javier guides you in at meal times, recognised the kids and made the meal times easier...

Pictures displayed on Jet2 are false beech park is no where near the hotel. There is a shuttle bus, pictures however Pictures are wrong.

Entertainment was good we were not in season so not as good an atmosphere as they deserved.

Prices in hotel were a rip off. We were all inclusive however Nappy and wipes at 16 euro is unacceptable. Everything in the shop was over priced.

Jet2. Flight was ok Customer service at Airports and flight was ok. In Hotel none existent. Book this holiday with Jet2 and your on your own.

Finally got hold off someone at Jet2 to ask about hiring a car, very unintrested and pasted me a website to hire a car, it was at Malaga airport over an hour away from hotel.

We got food posion on final day, my 3 year old was badly sick at 20.00 the night before we left, at 1am my 11 year old was extremely sick, we woke after a bad night at 6 am to catch transfer at 8am, again everyone was sick, the flight was horrendous, 6 sick bags.

On return home I informed Jet2 of this and the lady in the call centre while symplectic, i told her my 11 year old was that ill she slept for 24 hours on return home, her reply thats a typical Teenager.

Will never travel with Jet2 again....

Awful hotel

Review by Robyn799 Manchester, United Kingdom

Spent a week here and never wanted to go home so much in my life. Took 1 and a half hours to check in after the flight with two kids. Found our broken room with dirt everywhere and most things broken...

The food was awful, raw or grey and the same at lunch and dinner for the whole week, apart from the steamed clams we were treated to one night. I saw a rat climbing out of the bin at the snack bar and you couldn’t let the kids walk anywhere without shoes due to the broken glass. The only day I looked forward to was the day we were leaving until they removed our wristbands at 11 and expected us to but 3 euro cans of coke until we left at 5. The reception and pool did look quite nice however. The kids club offers loads of entertainment however places were gone 4 minutes after opening the day beforehand so sadly I can’t comment on those as we weren’t able. The wifi was turned off the day before we checked.
