Holiday village was a great value all inclusive 2 week holiday that cost me just over £1,700 for myself, wife and 2 kids ages 8 & 13. Pools and beach club superb,room(no.428) was fine,spacious and clean with sea/pool view. plenty of lifts for upper floors. Food was adequate with good choice ,although after 2 weeks lunch & dinner can become a bit samey and mundane.(i would compare the quality to a motorway service station) . Breakfast is superb with great choice both hot and cold with the only minor gripe being the queuing for the toast machines and juice machines. Facilities on site are fine including the bars,shop,computer cafe (1 euro for 10mins). Would not advise self catering at the hoilday village as i think you would spend a fortune on food & drinks in the hotel with the shop being limited in choice and pricey.
There does appear to be a problem with a sickness bug at the holiday viallage,with both my children and my wife suffering from it at different times during the 2 weeks, although it does only seem to last 24 hours or so. Another bugbear is the sunbed frenzy in the mornings around the main pool and the queue for the opening of the beach club at 10am , although to be fair with the tempreture over 35 c every day we was at the village,the limited number of shades available was more the problem rather than the lack of sunbeds. The bus service to benalmadina (very nice harbour) is quick and cheap (4 .6 euros for 4 of us) and runs every 30mins from outside the hotel .
Summary: Short flight and transfer is lovely, good clean facilities, ideal family holiday, very good value but Sandals it is not.
