Holidaymaker stunned at £33,000 easyJet 10-night holiday to Spain

Holidaymaker is stunned when easyJet offers a 10-night family holiday at a three-star Costa del Sol hotel for £33,000 – more than the UK average wage

  • Rachael Morrell searched for a Spanish holiday for four from July 29 to August 8
  • She couldn’t believe when she found Hotel Club Palia La Roca’s quote price 
  • Price includes 10 nights at three-star hotel and flights from Newcastle to Malaga
  • EasyJet said the quote – more than average salary, £29,588 – was issued in error

A holidaymaker has been left stunned by easyJet after she was quoted £32,949 for a 10-night holiday to Spain. 

Rachael Morrell wanted to see how much it would cost to jet a family-of-four out to the Costa del Sol this summer for 10 nights.

She searched the easyJet website for flights from Newcastle to Malaga leaving on July 29 and returning on August 8 and accommodation for four people sharing one room. 

But she could not believe her eyes when the website said an all-inclusive stay at the three-star Hotel Club Palia La Roca would cost more than the average UK annual salary – £29,588.

By contrast, a package holiday at a five-star hotel, also in the Costa Del Sol, costs less than half the price of the one Ms Morrell was looking at.    

An easyJet spokesman told MailOnline the extortionate quote was given in error.

Ms Morrell posted a screenshot of her search on the easyJet Facebook page yesterday saying: ‘Is there something extra special about this hotel for this price?’

The Hotel Club Palia La Roca is situated in the tourist area of Benalmadena and is just metres from the beach.

The hotel also has an air-conditioned restaurant, a bar, a games room, a TV room and a kids play park.

According to TripAdvisor, most of the reviews for the complex are very positive, with a four out of five star rating. But one user was not impressed with the hotel. 

Tripadvisor reviewer AandEEvents from London posted in May this year saying: ‘I will never step foot inside this awful place again.

According to TripAdvisor, most of the reviews for the complex are very positive, with a four out of five star rating. But one user was not impressed with the hotel (pictured) 

‘I have stayed in over 400 hotels in 66 counties, written hundreds of reviews for hotels and restaurants, I can’t think of a worse place to stay.

‘Only the housekeeping did a very good job and deserve not to be rated the same as the rest of the hotel!’

Another search has revealed that it is not just passengers from Newcastle that are affected by this obscene price.

Departures from Glasgow, Manchester and London Gatwick are consistently showing results of £30,000 for the 10 night stay at the hotel.

One search revealed a flight from Glasgow to Malaga for 10 nights at the Hotel Club Palia La Roca between July 29 to August 8 for two adults, and two 10-year-old children staying in one room came to £32,578.

In comparison the five star Don Carlos Leisure Resort & Spa in Marbella, Costa Del Sol amounts to £13,789 for the same departure date and place. 

EasyJet have since removed the offer from their website, with a spokesman saying: ‘We’d like to say thanks for alerting us to this simple error. 

‘We have put a temporary hold on the sale of this particular hotel while we look in to what has happened in the background. 

‘We hope to have it fixed and available at the correct price to book again as quickly as possible.’ 

By contrast, a package holiday at a five-star hotel, also in the Costa Del Sol (options shown), costs less than half the price of the one Ms Morrell was looking at
