A good-value option for family holidays in Spain, First Choice's Holiday Village Costa del Sol on the coast of Andalucia just a 30-minute transfer from the airport is well-rated for its Beach Club, which keeps kids happy with a wave pool, pirate ship and other watery fun, its food, and its kids’ clubs for all ages, including a teen hangout.

Holiday Village Costa del Sol also has stage and sports academies and an aerial adventure course, along with a spa where parents can treat themselves while the kids are having fun. There's an indoor pool in the spa, too, with dedicated kids' times – handy if you come outside high season.

Despite this being an all-inclusive resort, accommodation (simple but clean and comfortable) comes in the form of one-bedroom apartments with kitchens - especially handy for those travelling with younger kids. Some sleep up to six, making this a good choice for larger families. If you want to get out and about exploring the local area, public buses from outside the hotel serve various resort towns in the area. 


Holiday Village Costa del Sol is about a 30-minute transfer from Malaga airport.
