From Check in at the airport, to saying goodbye to Cardiff Airport after our return home, a very enjoyable experience.
It was our 2nd time to the Holiday Village at Benalmadena, booked through First Choice holidays, as we had previously. Our daughter was aged 3 the first time, aged 5 this time and loved every second of it.
We had room 423 which suited us perfectly, had a great view of the pools and the Waterpark, and of course the Sea. Check in was quick, and after an early flight out we were soon making good use of the all inclusive food and drink.
The restaraunt had many dishes on offer every day, salads, pasta's, chefs grill, fish, cold meats, soup, full English Breakfast, cold meats and cheeses and of course the childrens favorites of Chips, nuggets, fish bites, burgers, hot dogs and pizzas. I personally never got bored of the food, the choice was excellent and the quantity plentiful.
The poolside snack bar obviously had nowhere near as much choice, but then you shouldn't expect it to.
Wifi was limited to a certain area, although it easily stretched as far as the bar... ;-)
Our 5 yr old had a great time in the pools, and across the road at the waterpark (which is a very short walk, 10 mins at most) None of the pools were closed at any time during our stay.
All inclusive drinks are of course all local spirits but something you get used to quite quickly. Soft Drinks and Tea/Coffee are great quality (fanta/coke etc)
Entertainment Staff - You guys are amazing and do a fantastic job, seriously... Kept us and our little one entertained non-stop. Special mentions for Tyler and Hettie, where do you guys get your energy from??
Swimming Staff - Alice and Joyce, Thank you both so much for looking after our little girl and giving her so much confidence in the water. We have been trying for ages, but thanks to you she is now happy to have a go at swimming out of her depth without her armbands. A very trusting role which you guys excel at!
Its the second time we have visited in October, the weather was great, a couple of hazy mornings but by lunchtime it was blue skies til nightfall. Estimating 27/28 degrees most of the time. A lovely time of year to visit.
Thanks to you all, and see you at the Holiday Village again in the future!
