We stayed here for a few nights, and got a free upgrade to a junior suite, which was very welcome.
The hotel itself is a little dated in the decor and the rooms, but all very clean and well maintained. The showers weren't great though. The pool area was huge with loads of loungers and plenty of space in the garden area to go, so you weren't crowded too much.
We booked directly, not realising it was a thomson gold hotel, and probably wouldn't go again for this reason-lots of "entertainment" which we weren't really interested in, but if you like that sort of thing it seemed well organised.
Nice short walk to the nearby town and to falesia beach in the other direction (about 10mins/15mins respectively)
Staff very helpful printing our boarding passes, ordering taxis and just generally being lovely
Pool was a bit odd-40cm deep the whole way around the edges which makes swimming lengths a bit tricky! Also was no problem bringing your own water (or beers) around the pool, which other places I have stayed would have not allowed
