What Is A TUI Holiday Village Holiday
Holiday Village resorts are a select range of hotels that ATBA and ATOL protected tour operators TUI and First Choice have chosen to focus on for some of their more family holidays offering.
During the peak summer months, TUI has holiday reps, staff and an entertainment team in resort to fully maximise the family fun. During the off-peak periods, often between October and April, the hotel is usually known by it's other name (which can vary from resort to resort). For example, the Holiday Village Seaview Ibiza is also known as the Sirenis Seaview Country Club, and the Holiday Village Majorca in Cala Millor is known as the Protur Monte Safari Aparthotel. This allows other brands like On The Beach, Thomas Cook, Jet2holidays and Barrhead Travel to sell the hotels as standard (although without the TUI staff).
With activities like aerial adventure courses, a splash park and three academies (swim academy, football academy & stage academy), it's so easy to see why parents choose these resorts year after year for their annual getaways.
Why Choose A TUI Holiday Village Holiday
There's a reason why both we at My Budget Break, and families across the UK like Holiday Village resorts. Reviews are always pretty good, and there's a standard of service, facilities, activities and accommodation you can come to expect when staying.
If you're in charge of booking the family holiday, it's often tempting to risk it and try somewhere new, relying on previous guest reviews and vlogs you find online. If you want to skip that hassle and worry, it's easy to stick with what you know.
What's more, when you book through TUI Holidays or First Choice, you're ABTA and ATOL protected so you've got that extra bit of financial protection in addition to your travel insurance, and flight and hotel packages with them usually include things like airport transfers and a check-in luggage allowance. And because it falls under the TUI brand, no deposit holidays might also be possible, allowing you to secure the price of your break next year, and pay off the balance in monthly instalments.
What To Expect
Even though it's a family holiday, it's great when the kids can go off and make friends, no matter their age. The HV Kids' Clubs are split into different age groups, the HV Club for 3-5 years, one for 6-8 years, and HV Crew for 9-12 year olds. There's also The Zone for teenagers which has a range of activities and games. There are usually three academies which cost extra and get booked up quickly as they are very popular (so download the TUI app and book the kids onto their favourite academy before you arrive)! These are the football academy, a swim academy and a stage academy. For the very little ones, there's an HV creche.
During the summer months between June and September, there is a dedicated entertainment team on hand to help you make the most of your escape. With everything from poolside games, aqua aerobics and sports tournaments during the day, to live music, shows, and mini discos in the evening, you definitely won't get bored. During the low season, many daytime activities and evening entertainment options are significantly reduced.
Food & Drink
The resorts are all inclusive, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in the main buffet restaurants. All the hotels have additional a la carte restaurants which cost extra, although many packages include a free a la carte evening meal for every 7 nights you stay. Bars can vary from place to place, but you'll usually find at least a pool bar and a bar you can enjoy a cocktail or two in the evening.
Room types can vary but being so family centric, they've got you covered. Spacious family rooms, 1 bedroom apartments and 2 bedroom apartments are usually found at each resort, allowing you to save money in a family room which has a sofa bed or a partition with bunk beds, or you can splash out with extra space with 2 bedrooms. Some of the hotels also have swim up rooms available too. Interconnecting rooms aren't always available and if they are, are usually only available on request and cannot be guaranteed.
Swimming Pools & Splash Parks
The other thing to expect are some great swimming pool facilities. The best Holiday Villages have splash parks or mini water parks with waterslides which is ideal if you've got a family who hate to just sit by the pool. There's always a dedicated kids' pool too. One or two resorts also have rooms with swim up pools that are shared.
Things To Do
Going all inclusive on a family holiday can be great. You literally don't have to leave the walls of your hotel, but it can be a breath of fresh air to escape the fence and visit the nearby beaches or local town. The Holiday Village Atlantica Mikri Poli Kos in Greece sits right on the beachfront. The sandy beach here is perfect for a quick dip in the Mediterranean Sea. It's worth speaking to your rep or hotel staff when you arrive about some of the day trips and excursions available from the hotel.
All Inclusive Holidays
All Holiday Villages are all inclusive, allowing you sit sit back, relax and enjoy yourself, safe in the knowledge that food and drink is included. There are a few extras you can pay for like certain watersports on the beach, premium alcohol brands and the children's academies, but you don't have to take part in those.
Another great thing is that the buffet restaurants have an extensive menu of dishes, ranging from international favourites like Italian, to local delicacies depending on where you are staying. Plus there's usually a great kids buffet section too.
Daytime snacks are available, including those all important ice creams although the bar and restaurant offering can very from hotel to hotel, so be sure to check out the details of your specific one before you book. Certain bars or restaurants may be closed during the winter months.
TUI Holiday Village Destinations
There are 4 Holiday Villages in Spain, one in Lanzarote, one in Ibiza, one in Majorca and the Holiday Village Costa del Sol. While mainland Spain can be closer in terms of flight time, sitting in the Canary Islands, Lanzarote is perfect for year round sunshine and is a firm favourite for winter sun with children.
Sarigerme near Dalaman is home to the Holiday Village Turkey (also known as Türkiye). This hotel sits on a huge stretch of beach close to Dalaman airport making it one of the best Holiday Villages if you can't stand long airport transfers. Here the airport transfer is just 20 minutes by coach. There's a range of pools here including an indoor pool which is heated in winter and a slide pool, as well as a bowling alley (although that does cost extra).
With resorts in both Kos and Rhodes, Greece is a popular spot anyway for a family getaway. Both options have a couple of waterslides and plenty of activities to keep the youngster busy, even teens! The Holiday Village Atlantica Mikri Poli Kos has six outdoor pool plus an indoor pool, as well as being right on the beach, whereas the Holiday Village Atlantica Rhodes in Kolymbia has a lazy river, high ropes and a spa.
With 5 pools and a splash park, although the Holiday Village in Cyprus is a 10 minute walk to the beach, with so much on offer here, you won't care! Located on the west coast of Cyprus between Paphos town and Paphos airport, this is a great option for family fun in the sun.
Just north of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt is the Red Sea Holiday Village, also known as the Coral Sea Holiday Village. This sprawling resort sits on the beachfront of Nabq Bay and guests also have free access to the mini waterpark at the nearby hotel, Coral Sea Aqua Club. It's also got some of the best reviews of all of the Holiday Villages.
