This hotel lays on plenty for children, including a splash pool and a Thomson Kids’ Club. It’s right by the beach, too.
This place is just a stone’s throw from a golden sandy beach. The shops and restaurants are a 5-minute walk away, and a coastal path takes you over the cliffs to Son Bou.
The main pool gets lots of attention here - it’s big enough for lengths. And the buffet restaurant takes care of meals. This hotel will no longer be a Family Resort from May 2016. But don’t worry, it’ll still offer family-friendly holidays with Thomson Kids’ Clubs.

Thomson Kids' Club
Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week until October 2015, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.
The restaurant is bright and airy with all your favourite foods and local specialities on offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The location of the hotel is about two minutes from the beach, the sea is very shallow for quite a way out, which makes it very safe for bathing for children and non swimmers. We didnt hire any loungers because these were quite expensive, It was cheaper to buy an umbrella from the local shop, use it for the duration of the holiday and then leave it by the desk in reception for guests who would arrive after us. The rooms are basic,but clean. The splash pool for the very young children is great fun, there are two more pools a small shallow one and a deeper one, not wonderful but we found them adequate for the morning until we went to the beach after lunch. The food was well cooked and there was a wide variety, suitable for all our family which ranged from three to sixty. The entertainment was not very good, but because there were small children in our party, we tended to retire early anyway. The food in the pool bar at morning and afternoon snack time was terrible, dried sandwiches. It would have been nice to have been able to have lunch in a pool bar rather than go up to the restaurant each meal time. Saying that:- would I go back again? Yes, a good place to relax there are only the basic shops there, no other bars or discos other than in the other one or two hotels in the area.More
Good hotel, great staff. Rooms were adequate and kept very clean. Good choice of food with friendly staff. Nice location by the beach. Childrens entertainment was very good (rather loud in the evening), but adult entertainment was poor.Overall had a great holiday,More

A great family resort geared solely toward children. The reps were amazing and were on hand 24/7 with any query or request .The entertainment team and kids reps were especially helpful . The only downside was the size of the rooms and kids choice of meals , both could do with an overhaul . The pools were ideals or both swimmer and non swimmer. More

Great hotel in a beautiful location.
We have just returned from 2 weeks at The Victoria Playa.(15/07 -29/07) We found it a fabulous hotel and after a last minute booking were extremely pleased. It is a Thomson family resort and with it being the beginning of the summer holidays it was very busy. This however did not affect the quality of the food as it was amazing!! I am a vegetarian and had plenty of choice. A hand sanitiser is placed at the door of the restaurant and I didn't hear of any sick bugs etc. Although it still surprised me the amount of people that chose to walk straight past it!!.The poolside bar had snacks and a great selection of drinks. The slushies are a big hit! The staff around the whole hotel were polite,helpful and always smiling. The pool area was clean and always had a life guard on duty. There were plenty of sun beds available until about 10am during our first week but 9am in the second when it really started to get busy. Surrounding the pool area is a large open space with lots of trees providing shade. Much appreciated as the weather was very hot. The rooms were small and basic but spotlessly clean and we must have got lucky as we had 2 rooms and both had hair dryers in the bathrooms and a great sea view (547,548). We hired a fridge and a safe but the fridge comes in a wooden lockable cabinet that has a shelf at the top above the fridge compartment ideal to keep things safe so don't bother hiring both. The rep's were on the go all day and did a sterling job. I felt tired for them by the end of the night!! I have teenagers so they couldn't join the kids club but they were able to join in with the daily pool side activities. I feel that it is a shame there isn't a teens club but it didn't stop my 2 having a great time and we did know this before we booked. The only let down for this hotel is the evening entertainment.Very very poor. They had the usual certificates and Thomson dog etc for the little ones but few outside entertainers brought in. The animation staff do their best but I think it is unfair to rely on them to do all day and all night. 'Cost cutting' could cost the hotel dearly as listening to others, many people felt the same and said they would not return because of it. It wasn't a big issue for us though as we were happy to go for a walk at night, sit outside playing cards etc and chatting to other families. (Nice to meet you Jan and John!!;)) Great location next to a large sandy beach. You could go back and forth without having to drag everything with you each time or pop back for drinks. You can hire pedalos 12 euro's- 1 hour. Also small boats with engines. We hired one for 40 euros for 1 hour. Really good value and fun. You can walk along the coast to Son Bou but in the heat is feels a very long way and unless you are jogging takes at least 45 mins or longer to the amenities. All in all a great holiday destination. I would definately recommend this hotel and resort to families with young children however my teenagers loved it also! I would have given a 4 start rating as I think the entertainment really lets it down but have given in and put 5 due to teenage pressure and the fact that we would love to go back again!! More
Did not meet our expectations
On arrival the hotel looked quite impressive. The good impression did not last. The rooms were dated, very small, without basics such as a fridge or even a hair dryer, more in line with a 2 star hotel in England The 3 single beds were ok but the pillows had lots of lumps, very uncomfortable The air con system was adequate The food area was bright and spacious but it was more of a canteen type environment, no ambience which is ok for breakfast but it would of been nice to have an area a little more private or personal for evening meals The entertainment was desperate, the children's entertainment was ok but the adults was more suited to an 18-30's venue, very very disappointed so chose to drink down the road, despite being all inclusive, spotted quite a few others guests doing the same The resort itself is very quiet, you can take yourself off on a trip, however these were very expensive so chose to use the local bus service which was very good We are a regular Thompson customer, just returned from Lanzarote a few months ago, which was great, this hotel did not compare in any way nor did the entertainment, very disappointingMore
