Have just returned from a great break at the Casa De Maris hotel with Thomson. We booked for a week but wished it had been for longer. There were a few niggles such as checking in, which i hope they will make a more pleasant experience. Arriving at 10.30 p.m. with 30 other couples and queuing at a desk manned by two people was long-winded and unnecessary. Some comfortable place to sit and fill in the forms with a welcome drink would have gone a long way to improve things. The hotel was exceptionally clean and cared for. The staff were always on hand and so welcoming, they could not be faulted. The food was the best we have had on a Thomson all inclusive break and often times was superb. I think this hotel would suit couples mostly, there were a few children around and they were well looked after, but there was not as much for them to do as in other places we have stayed.
We had a couple of days of rain and my one real grouse would be the lack of indoor comfortable space on a rainy day but as we were told it hardly rains after April so there is no need for indoor relaxation space. I did not see much sign of daytime entertainment and was not sure what the animation team did during the day. We had a wonderful violinist accompanying breakfast sometimes and a superb pianist at tea-time and in the evening. The animation team put on a couple of activities in the evening, which were ok. I have to mention that the turkish bath, hairdresser and the jewellery shop staff were all very good, I love my new hairstyle.
We had a room facing the pool and our friends facing the small agricultural plot, both were fine though our nights we somewhat disturbed by a lovely family next door with small children. I don't think the soundproofing was great. The cock crowing didn't bother us at all, we actually liked it but our rooms did not face that way.
I am very pleased we chose this hotel and would be happy to go again but it depends what you are looking for in a holiday. If quality of food, service and friendliness of staff and guests are most important then you should have a great time. One final grouse - we had a check-out time of 8.15 a.m. and asked for an alarm call at 6.30 but it didn't happen. Someone else had the same problem. It is a good job I set my own alarm as well.
