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.

Great Hotel

Review by Richard B London, United Kingdom

My family had a lovely holiday here. This is a massive complex, with lots to do. The staff were very friendly, and the service was very good...

Our room was a very good size, with a large balcony area. They have astro turf around the pools, which is a lot safer than the usual tiled/concrete flooring you get. Staff come around the pool giving out cocktails. There is a massive selection of food to choose from, and all cooked to a decent standard. Our room was immaculately cleaned every day, with fresh bedding and towels. Would definitely recommend if you can get it for a good price.

Middle of nowhere

Review by janice g St Helens, United Kingdom

Just got back from 2 weeks here. Originally booked into the vistamar but were moved a week before departure. Complex is absolutely huge...

Beautiful apartment. Clean towels every day. We were self catering so couldn't comment on food except to say if we wanted to dine, buffet style, it was 25 euros each which I thought was rather pricey. Just be aware of booking, this complex is absolutely miles from anything. No beach. Impossible to walk to anything. On the plus side, bus service was quite good.

Once and never again

I am 52 years old and have travelled all over the world staying in numerous hotels and never have I been told that on checking out I have to leave the hotel premises. I understand that you need to check out of your room by a certain time and that the hotel might not be able to accommodate a request for late checkout, but that you are politely asked to move out of the premises on checking out is shameful Obviously all blamed on COVID!! Surely these hotels should plan for incoming guests and for those that are leaving, that might still have had plans to make use of the hotel facilities on the day of departure!!! And to add insult to injury this was on the back of the day before one of the main pools at the resort beach club being closed for hours due to a kid having done his necessities in the water ruining the day for my grandson as well as us as the rest of the facilities as a result were overwhelmed and overcrowded. Out of 3 night 4 days 2 of the days ruined! Never again!!!!

The only bad memory of our wedding / El único mal recuerdo de nuestra boda

Review by mabelrb Malaga, Spain

We recently got married and booked in this hotel to spend a few days 2 suites with 2 bedrooms and 1 suite in the attic, all with Jacuzzi for us and our family.

We were at the hotel a month before to make sure that everything would be fine and we asked them to reserve a specific room for us, to which we were told that there was no problem. What was our surprise when we arrived with our wedding clothes and they told us that they had given our room to another couple that same day because they were just married.

From there everything got worse:

  • They left us a note in the room, they got confused and put my husband's name and the name of another instead of mine.
  • The rooms had a serious lack of maintenance, the wallpaper was stuck, the TV did not work well ...
  • The beds were horrible and we had to call because I had loose legs in several of the rooms.
  • There was a lack of cleanliness, dead insects, hairs and gum stuck in a very visible place in the Jacuzzi.
  • We had to ask for towels because there weren't enough.
  • For the other rooms we saw how they were cleaning and in ours we had to call several times and they still did not go over.
  • The breakfast buffet was a disaster and the food of average low quality.
  • On the second night they celebrated a wedding party inside the hotel, since it is not prepared for this type of event, the music was heard very loud in the rooms until the wee hours. In short, we are very disappointed. We cannot recommend this hotel to anyone.

Nos casamos hace poco y reservamos en este hotel para pasar unos dias 2 suites de 2 dormitorios y 1 suite en el atico, todas con Jacuzzi para nosotros y nuestra familia.

Estuvimos en el hotel un mes antes para asegurarnos de que todo estaria bien y le pedimos que nos reservaran una habitacion especifica, a lo que nos dijeron que no habia problema...

Cual fue nuestro sorpresa cuando llegamos con nuestra ropa de novios y nos dijeron que le habian dado ese mismo dia nuestra habitacion a otra pareja porque eran recien casados.

Desde ahi todo fue a peor:

  • Nos dejaron una nota en la habitacion, se confundieron y pusieron el nombre de mi marido y el nombre de otra en lugar del mio.
  • Las habitaciones tenian falta grave de mantenimiento, el papel de las paredes depegado, la tele no funcionaba bien...
  • Las camas eran horribles y tuvimos que llamar porque tenia las patas sueltas en varias de las habitaciones.
  • Habia falta de limpieza, insectos muertos, pelos y un chicle pegado en un sitio muy visible del jacuzzi.
  • Tuvimos que pedir toallas porque no habia suficientes.
  • Por la demas habitaciones vimos como pasaban a limipiar y en la nuestra tuvimos que llamar varias veces y seguian sin pasarse.
  • El buffet del desayuno era un desastre y la comida de calidad regular baja.
  • En la segunda noche celebraron la fiesta de una boda dentro del hotel, que como no esta preparado para este tipo de eventos, la musica se escuchaba muy fuerte en las habitaciones hasta altas horas. En resumen, estamos muy decepcionados. No podemos recomendar este hotel a nadie.
