We have just returned from another relaxing holiday at this splendid hotel. The staff are, without exception, polite, friendly and always helpful making for a good holiday. The hotel and the vast gardens are beautifully maintained. There are plenty of sun loungers around the large pool and dotted around the gardens if you want a secluded area. The food too is excellent and beautifully presented with lots of fruit and vegetable carvings (you can see these demonstrated one morning). Victor the local interest rep is a fount of knowledge and takes interesting walks in the locality as well as two different half day mystery tours, which are a must! The Thomson staff work hard to make your stay enjoyable with daytime activities, and do their best in the evenings, but we were disappointed that there is no longer a Thomson gold production team as we have always enjoyed their shows at this and other gold hotels. The comedians flown in by Thomson were very mediocre at best and not really our 'cup of tea'.Talking of tea, do take your own travel kettle if you want to make tea in your room. Only the superior rooms have them provided. The other change from previous years is the television, as BBC and ITV are not, at present, available in hotels in Spain and Portugal. The only English programmes are Sky News and CNN news.
We will probably return in a year or two and hope Thomson will re introduce a production team.
