Hello, this is my first ever forum thread. The ones on here have been very helpful to us in many ways so I thought I'd try and be of help to others too.
Where to start, well we are travelling with Thomson, staying in a limited sea view room, not in the adults only section although we are not travelling with children, just myself and my boyfriend. The adults only block is next to our block and we can use their pool if we like however we spend most of our day down on the beach.
When we arrived on the Wednesday there was a beach party in the evening at the Diamond club beach bar, but everyone could attend not just the diamond club guests. It was a great start to the holiday, good party atmosphere and good entertainers including fire eaters and stilt walkers. This is the only night that they have a beach party which I think finished at midnight but for the rest of the week there is a nightclub/late bar in the hotel for anyone wanting drinks past 11 which is when the other bars close.
Staff have all been great so far, attentive and they appear happy in their work. We have eaten at Hunters steakhouse (twice!) and also at Under the sea, Cavas tapas bar and also at Zen which is the only restaurant for which you need a reservation. The first time at Hunters we were given a pager and told it would be about an hour and a half wait, which we were fine with, so we went to Martini mix for a drink and then our table was ready within about 40 minutes anyway. The second time we went a little earlier and were seated straight away.
We are going to the Italian a la carte tonight so will keep you all posted...now...piña colada time!
