We normally go to the Etap, (El Luxor), but due to Thomson cancelling it after our booking was accepted they tried to shift us to the Iberotel which we promptly told them where they could shove it and accepted the Sonesta as the only real available choice left due to the needs of our party. Now I have read both good and bad about this hotel and frankly we are not expecting anything fabulous and certainly not 5* but I am getting very concerned about the noise and dirt situation, (surly staff I can deal with). I'm a chronic insomniac and as I share a room with my 12 year old daughter, I spend most of the night on the balcony reading or just watching the world go by. On reading the reviews I am increasingly worried as to the fact that I will get neither peace or privacy on my balcony due to the building works that seem to be dragging on endlessly and Thomsons have still not informed us of any works at all!
What I'm asking is for those that have been lately or any expats who visit the hotel to honestly tell me if this is going to be an issue. We are staying in July so should the work be finished by then? What is the situation with the room cleanliness? If the work looks likely to be continuing while I am there then what noise interuptions can I truly expect,(specifically)? Best room to request to avoid disturbance? Any other info you think may help me decide if I should be contacting Thomson again lol. Thanks in advance people.
