There were quite a number of people on this trip who had done it before, including someone who was doing it for their seventh time, which gives you an idea of how good it is. Sardinero has fabulous beaches and parks and bars and restaurants and the casino. The coach trips were all very good. The journey back was not so good coming back to Portsmouth when we had sailed from Plymouth and the coach went to Taunton before coming back eventually to Plymouth.
With regards to the hotel, the room was very good and we had no problem at all.
Food: Buffet breakfast very good. A buffet evening meal which always consisted of a salad starter which was a bit boring but very nice. The main meal was very good except they didn't seem to understand the concept that hot food needs to be eaten hot. It wasn't very hot to start with and then you put it onto a stone cold plate! The service was very poor - one poor waiter for the whole party. Dishes just left piled in the middle of the table without being collected, but we were provided with free wine every night which was a nice surprise.
The other area for improvement is that there was no entertainment in the evening or even anywhere to sit for a drink after dinner.
The staff in general were very grim-faced especially in the reception area, but on the whole the package for this Majestic holiday was very good and we'd do it again.
