The golden sandy beach might be the star of the show at VIK Gran Hotel Costa del Sol, but there is plenty more to this fabulous hotel than sun, sea and sand.
The hotel features a freshwater swimming pool with a separate pool for children, fringed with sun-loungers and parasols, and plenty of activities throughout the day, including a daytime entertainment programme, evening shows, fitness classes and watersports.
There is a children's play area next to the hotel, and should you fancy exploring the resort, you can also hire bicycles from the hotel. Active types can try their hand at archery and rifle shooting, or work off last night's cuisine with a heart-pumping aerobic or dance class.
On-site facilities at VIK Gran Hotel Costa del Sol include a 24hr reception, TV room, a solarium, library, Internet corner and games room.
Head outside the hotel complex and you'll find an abundance of things to see, do and experience. From horse riding to water skiing, golf to tennis, you'll never be short of entertainment. Car hire is available locally, as are numerous excursions and day trips. Why not see the sights on an excursion to Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla, or Gibraltar? Head into Marbella for a day of shopping, fine dining and cocktails, or practice your swing at a local golf course - there are several fantastic courses within easy reach including El Noria, El Chaparral and Miraflores.
Children (and big kids too) will be well entertained thanks to the local summer beach activities, such as pedal boats, jet skiing and banana boat rides, and nearby you'll find great days out in the form of Benalmadena's Sea Life centre, Fuengirola Zoo, Mijas Water Park, and Estepona Safari Park. Or how about a cable car ride in the soul-stirring mountains of Benalmadena?
Rest assured, there is plenty to see and do for all ages in this beautiful sun-soaked corner of Spain.
