First impressions are of a lovely hotel, and it is, however the usual fiasco of a missed dinner due to an hour wait on the coach at the airport then an hour long journey, so the dining room was closed and no meals were available for the 10 arrivals. This hotel advertises in its information booklet that late, cold suppers will be provided if ordered in advance. Thompsons are missing a trick here - could the rep not just order enough for the number of arrivals??
Having got that of my chest (sorry it happened last year too) the holiday was really good. Our room was large, clean and had a sea-view, it was also moderately quiet (compared to Marhaba Palace last year). The meals were also good and varied, obviously some things better than others but personal taste may account for this. The animation team were visible but not all the activities were available and it was neccessary to search them out on occasions as activities advertised failed to appear. The evening shows struggled to be average in my opinion but many people seemed to enjoy them.. The gym was very poor as both execise bikes were faulty and had been for some time, no treadmill and also a drinking fountain in the gym was not even connected to a water supply.
The two swimming pools were very good, the indoor one which I used a lot had a temperature variation every day but nevertheless, nice. The staff were, without exception very helpful, polite and hardworking. I would visit Marco Polo again :)
