easyJet customer quoted whopping £33,000 for 10-night family holiday in Spain

A holidaymaker was stunned when easyJet quoted her a whopping GBP33,000 for a holiday to Spain at a three-star resort. Rachael Morrell was perusing the website for a 10-night all inclusive stay with her family in the Costa del Sol. But when she stumbled across a hotel that ticked all the boxes she was shocked at the GBP32,949 price tag - more than the UK average salary.

Other searches for the package holiday at the Hotel Club Palia La Roca near Malaga departing from different UK airports were also advertised as being around GBP30,000 for a family of four.

However a package holiday at a five star hotel, also in the Costa Del Sol, costs less than half the price of the one she was looking at. Rachael's pictures show how her holiday would cost her a total of GBP32,949 between July 29 to August 8 for four people in one room from Newcastle to Malaga.

She posted a screenshot of her search on the easyJet Facebook community 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. It offers an all inclusive option as well as a kids club for children.

The rooms have free WIFI and satellite TV and are equipped with modern bathroom amenities.

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. However, 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.

"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 GBP30,000 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 GBP32,578.

In comparison, the five star Don Carlos Leisure Resort & Spa in Marbella, Costa Del Sol amounts to GBP13,789 for the same departure date and place.

easyJet has since removed the offer from its website.

A spokesman told MailOnline the extortionate quote was given in error.

He said: "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."
