We have stayed all over the world and though we have visited hotels which excelled in some aspects, this is probably the best overall. Although there were 4 coaches checking in at the same time due to flight delays, we were in our room with our cases inside 30 mins and the restaurant was still providing food late at night!
Our room was always kept clean and we rarely saw our room boy until he came to find us because he had retrieved our camera from the waste bin in our room where it had accidentally fallen!
The food was always good and often excellent especially the crepes and honey puff balls.
The Asian Restaurant do a great banana flambe.
The Thomson Rep was refreshingly calm and efficient at the welcome meeting and always around to help. When we mentioned in passing how loud the music was from a neighbouring hotel she spoke to the manager and he rang the hotel in question resulting in a reduction of volume!
The Management Team listen to suggestions and act on them whenever possible and there is a general ethos of good service which is evident throughout the hotel. They also seem genuinely pleased to see visitors and they don't hang around for tips although they are so helpful you would need to be a real scrooge not to give a tip for service which is so good.
If you want a really great dining experience for a special occasion then pay to dine in the tower. Your own waiter, soft music and superb views. Expensive but very memorable.
My husband is a very picky eater and he could always find something to eat in the restaurant and he is also very critical about the service he receives but there were no complaints on this occasion. We will definitely return.
The ony downside to out holiday were the thoughtless visitors who go to the beach restaurant and sit on the upholstered seats whilst their swimwear is still wet. Dry off folks so other people don't have to sit on damp seats.
