I note that a lot of winter guests are advising not to pay extra for a sea view room, my advice is ignore those comments !!
Last summer I did not book a sea view room through Thomsons, thought I would give it a try as all rooms have sea views, WRONG !
When we arrived at 1-30 in the morning we were given keys to a ground floor room, in an area the staff call the dungeon, it was absolutely terrible, smelt damp and was damp, the rear patio doors opened directly onto a footpath so there was little privacy, we returned to reception and complained, but they said the hotel was full so they couldn't do anything, we would have to wait until the Thomson Rep arrived at 10-30 in the morning.
The only way we could be moved was if we paid a supplement of €104, which is a lot more than paying the extra when you first book, needless to say I paid up and was duly given a lovely room on the top floor of A block !
We have visited this hotel about 7 times now, and always found it excellent, this was the first and only time this has happened, I think Thomson has got wise to the sea view situation now, so if you want to risk it go ahead, but you have been warned !!
I incidentally we are returning to the hotel again in June this year and I most certainly have paid the extra for the sea view.
