Visible crew/equipment: When Michael is street dancing towards the end of the episode, about 5-10 seconds into the routine (as he's shuffling his feet on the floor) look just above the table on the right hand side of the screen. You can easily see a camera crew behind the table.

Episode #2.1 - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: As soon as the episode starts we see a passenger jet coming in to land on the runway. In the next shot as it lands, you can see it's a different company's jet.

Episode #3.1 - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Geoff is shouting at Donald, Jacqueline and Noreen for not getting anything right at crosswords, the people who walk behind them in the background keep changing between shots. It starts when Donald says "Quite saucy for a cartoon", a female hotel worker walks past them in the background. We can see the woman walking in the background when Geoff says "You're all sitting here talking rubbish". About 2 shots later, the female worker in the background is now much closer to them but still walking off. Then in the shot where Geoff says "Course it matters!", a male hotel worker and a woman in a bikini behind them walk past them. About 3 shots later, those exact same two people are seen walking past them again.

Episode #2.8 - S2-E8

Other mistake: Geoff paraglides into the wedding accidentally hitting Mel. Mel then flies onto the sand and is knocked out. But when everyone gets out of their seat and runs up to him, there is a long trail of sand coming from Mel's feet that could only have been made if he were dragged. He didn't get dragged, he just got kicked and flew into the air, then fell on the ground. (00:18:45)

Other mistake: During the scenes in the Hawaiian Function Room you can see the sun shining down on the floor and furniture, when it's meant to be thundery with heavy rain outside.

Episode #4.3 - S4-E4

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene where Pauline is talking to Michael at the bar, Pauline puts an empty glass on the bar and says "keep them coming". Mateo picks the glass up, and puts it under the bar. In the next shot, the glass appears back on the bar side.

Episode #4.3 - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: When Janice is speaking to Johnny by the pool, it is pouring down with rain. Look at all the parasols/walls etc in the background and you can see the sun shining on everything. The rain is artificial rain.

Continuity mistake: When the Garveys and Harveys go to see the mayor, they park the car and walk through the town. When they leave the mayor's office, the car is outside.

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Geoff is talking to Donald at the pool bar, just before Geoff swims off, a waiter appears from behind the bush in the background. In the next shot when Geoff swims off, the waiter should still be in shot, but has vanished. (00:14:40)

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Michael sets fire to Madge's magazine, you can see that the flame was not directly coming out of the lighter. The effect was added in during post-production. (00:05:15)

Episode #5.5 - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When Liam is showing the swimming team around the fish market in Calpe, he runs across to the other side of the path, cutting in front of a person in a white jacket. In the next shot directly after you should be able to see the person, but they have vanished.

Episode #5.5 - S5-E5

Factual error: At the pool party at the end of the episode, Asa Elliott is singing Gold by Spandau Ballet. Whilst he's singing, the shots change to different couples/families at the party. When Asa finishes the song, 5 minutes and 58 seconds have passed. The actual song is only 3 minutes 55 seconds.
