Accommodation & facilities

What room types are available?

The rooms at our beachclubs are split into three main categories. 

The majority are called "club" rooms. At most of our beachclubs we have some "premium" rooms too. Premium rooms may be bigger; be more convenient for some of the facilities or have a particularly special view. 

At some of our beachclubs, there are a small number of "economy" rooms. These rooms may be smaller, less convenient or have a less attractive view - it varies room-by-room, beachclub-by-beachclub. These rooms are a great value way to enjoy a Neilson holiday; yes it's a cheaper room but you still get to enjoy all the great facilities and activities the beachclub has to offer. 

In addition to these three types of room, many of our beachclubs also have a range of suites and inter-connecting rooms that are great for families. 

Can I book interconnecting rooms on your beachclub holidays?

Yes, most of our beachclubs have interconnecting rooms. Simply search for one room and any available options will be shown when selecting your room.

Is Wi-Fi available in the beachclubs?

There's free Wi-Fi in the public areas and in most of the rooms at all of our beachclubs.

What meals are included?

Most of our beachclubs include club board. This means that on each of the inclusive evenings, of which there are four, you can join us in the restaurant to enjoy a great choice of buffet dishes from around the Mediterranean and let our team of hosts recommend the perfect bottle of international or local wine to complement your meal.

If you're staying at Retreat Beachclub you'll enjoy half board with the option to upgrade to full board. Head to Cosmos Beachclub, and you'll be on a bed and breakfast board basis. Lunch and evening meals can be purchased at the beachclub.

Typical weather conditions in our Greek Beachclubs

Greece’s high summer is as hot as you’d expect a Mediterranean country to be, although summer can have some cloudy or rainy days, expect bright, bright sunlight to be the norm.


Temperatures are usually in the 30s, with the hottest days arriving in July and August. If the high summer temperatures aren’t for you, spring and autumn still see plenty of sunshine. The sea may feel a little fresh in spring, but we find it's still plenty warm enough with a rash vest on. 
 

Wind conditions

Aeolian Village Beachclub - Meltemi winds blow slightly off-shore, great for sailing and windsurfing in the afternoon. The wind typically reaches force 2-5


Buca and Messini Beachclubs - The wind typically picks up around midday, blowing on-shore most days, with cross on-shore conditions on windier days. The typical wind force ranges from 3-4 with the most consistent conditions in June, July and August.


Cosmos Beachclub - A standard day in Vassiliki starts with a gentle onshore breeze (force 1-2), this coupled with a shallow sand bar off the beach creates perfect conditions for beginners and an ideal learning environment for developing skills. In the afternoon the thermal wind 'Eric' arrives producing a strong cross-shore breeze, the ideal flat-water playground for the advanced sailor. Due to the size of the bay and the cross-shore winds, there is a small amount of fetch, so conditions stay fairly flat, even in very high winds.

Typically, any forecast over 8 knots blowing in a westerly direction will give good planning conditions in the bay. The wind comes from the mountain on the right side of the bay, giving our location next to the mountain the best flat-water conditions with the wind coming through first and lasting the longest. Wind conditions are most consistent during the peak months of June through to early September. May and late September are more likely to see 50/50 for planing conditions in the afternoon.


Retreat Beachclub - The typical wind force ranges from 1-2 all season, with calm waters most of the time - perfect for paddle sports, water skiing and wakeboarding.


Vounaki Beachclub - Gentle morning winds build throughout the day to give a nice breeze in the afternoon, it's windier than the Retreat Beachclub further north and the perfect place to learn to sail or for intermediate to progress their skills. Further out of the bay, winds can build to a steady force 3-4 in the afternoon.
 

Typical weather conditions in our Croatian Beachclub

The coastline of Croatia has a lovely, sunny climate throughout the summer months. You should expect to see the sunshine for around 10-12 hours per day with temperatures in the mid to high 20s, reaching into the 30s in July and August. May and September bring more manageable temperatures - though the sea will be a little cooler.
 

Wind conditions

June, July and August tend to offer the most predictable conditions. The breeze at the Alana Beachclub typically picks up after lunch, when beginners and intermediate sailors can take advantage of the cross on-shore winds (with a typical force of 3-4) most days.

Typical weather conditions in our Spanish Beachclub

July and August are the warmest months with temperatures peaking in the 30’s, with welcome relief from the heat brought by the Levante winds. Rain is relatively minimal, although the coastal areas are prone to the occasional heavy thundery downpour in the summer months.


Wind conditions

With a microclimate that generates consistent, steady thermal breezes the Mar Menor is a paradise for sailors. The predominant wind is the Levante blowing from the Mediterranean Sea in an east-north easterly direction. The wind tends to pick up around midday, sometimes to force 3-4.

Typical weather conditions in our Sardinian Beachclub

Sardinia has warm Mediterranean days and long, hot summers. May and June herald the start of the summer with temperatures in the mid-20s. It's not super-hot yet, so great for shore-based activities, especially mountain biking and road cycling.

July and August temperatures usually top out in the low 30s but can be hotter, while September sees a return to the mid to high 20s. If you're looking for the most consistent wind conditions for sailing, windsurfing or kitesurfing, it's best to travel in June, July or August.


Wind conditions

At Baia dei Mori Beachclub, the wind typically picks up in the middle of the day between around 11 am and 3 pm. It blows cross to cross off-shore most days. The typical wind force ranges from 3-4 with the most consistent conditions in June, July and August.
