Evening entertainment in a First Choice Holiday Village consists of tv style game shows for the kids. The Widget characters come out for live shows in the evening.

Sessions for 3-5 & 6-8 year olds with fun activities suitable for each age group. Sports skills, pool games and activities for older children covering 9-11 and 12-15 year olds. Clubs are run to UK standards so the staff have had advanced checks and first aid training.

First Choice Holidays 2025 All Inclusive

At one point Thomson Holidays (now Tui Holidays) decided to exclusively make First Choice Holidays all inclusive. They stopped selling self catering apartments, villas and room only hotels. As they put it at the time First Choice was the home of all inclusive! 

That decision has changed and now First Choice again offers apartments, villas with pools and the full range of typical holiday board basis options. 

So board basis options again include room only, bed and breakfast, half board, full board, self catering and all inclusive. 

What is All Inclusive?

Typically all inclusive hotels include your soft and alcoholic drinks as well as 3 meals per day. Some all inclusive deals also include an afternoon snack and some extra activities. 

The drinks provided are usually locally produced versions rather than the well now brands you will get in the UK. You can upgrade your all inclusive experience on a Tui Magic Life all inclusive holiday.

Hopefully that will be a lot less than the brochure price!
