  • Please refer to the following link for an up to date list of countries included in the Green List

I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice for countries included in the Green List is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

I am due to travel from September onwards

I want to change my holiday, what do I do?

I’m still worried, can I cancel my booking?

Club board menus mean you won't go hungry. Kick-start each day with an inclusive breakfast buffet bursting at the seams with fresh fruit, freshly baked bread, cheese, omelettes and pancakes. You'll be hungry after a morning on the bikes or on the water (or even just chilling around the pool), so lunch is included every day.

  • Our Accommodation

    Our AccommodationNeilson set themselves very high standards for your holiday accommodation. Each hotel is chosen primarily for its charm, range of facilities, location and suitability for activities.
    The one thing, which unites all of the clubs, is the same high level of service, staff, activities and childcare.
    Some of the resorts are more suitable than others for customers with special needs. If you or any of your family or friends have any concerns please call us to discuss your individual requirements and we will advise you accordingly.
    Late check out: Sometimes flights depart late in the afternoon or evening, when this is the case we are able to offer the chance to book a room for late check out. This service is available for a small supplement and can be booked in resort, subject to availability.
    Log Off: Feel the sun on your face, the wind in your hair or the fresh mountain air on your nose. Turn your mobile phone off (it does have an off button). Leave the laptop closed and the e-mails unread and just enjoy the moment. On the other hand, we also understand that some of you simply can't - that's why all of the Beachplus Clubs now have a Wi-Fi connection so you can log-on whilst you recharge your batteries.
