We stayed at the Panorama 4-18 August as a couple in our mid 40's.
Reading the 'terrible to poor' reviews some people are a bit cruel and have gone on their holiday to find complaints, they can read reviews before booking!
Food was ok, catering for masses of Brits is always going to be challenging, they do well considering. The food is sometimes a bit dry but the variety is fine. On a 2 wk AI we just get bored of sitting in canteen style scenarios so always go out 4 nights. Daggers in St Eulalia (restaurant street St Josep) is superb and very much recommended! Excellent food and service.
AI are often aimed at over 50's so what do you expect, we were there 2 wks and couldn't believe his many under 25's / 30's there were. If you don't want to be amongst worldly people who have lived and worked hard and enjoyed their retirement then go to San Antonio!
The pool was NOT full of litter or objects 4-18 August, I was in the pool every day all day it was lovely and clean. As was the entire pool are. The food at the pool / terrace cafe us basic but fine, enough choice.
The person who said there was a language barrier with waiting/ bar staff have no right to complain... Their English is ten x better than most Brits' Spanish unless of course you have a degree in Spanish or were burn in Britain to Spanish parents etc!
The person who said there was so little room in rooms to put clothes so had to keep in case..you really are finding things to nit pick. We had one of the smaller rooms in block 2 room 515, there is a wardrobe and shelving and plenty
hangers. How much clothes do you need on a 2 wk summer holiday?!!
Rooms clean comfy beds, towels changed daily, room cleaned daily, air con good, lovely sea view.
Entertainment team Tom & Haley were fantastic, a hard job trying to please some miserable old (and young) Brits. The games in the day were fun and breaks up the day.
Evening entertainment ok, the resident duos were dreadful I can confirm. Working men's clubs would not want to book them.
Those complaining about awful early (leaving day breakfast) you really do need to remember that the staff and chefs work hard from 8am til 10pm, all you need before an early flight is a brew and toast/cereal/croissant, unless a full fry up has been prescribed by your gp. They do need fresh milk then rather than hut but there were always scissors there. The staff can not work 24hrs a day and why do you need restaurant staff at 6am when everything is laid out.
There is a fully working shower at the pool for the person who said there is nothing.
Some people drive me mad!!
Ok... The negatives...
Very loud music switched on suddenly at 11am, could work just as well at half volume.
No air con on restaurant
Some grumpy bar staff, but most waiters at restaurant were friendly and very helpful.
At 7am you do not need maids scraping beds across floors, or singing loud outside your room to wake you up on purpose to get their 'section' cleaned asap. Even on an AI holiday sometimes you want a lay in, we get up at 6.30am every day for work.
G&T's always served with ice cubes and flat tonic... Tonic is fizzy! If on AI ask for Bombay gin rather than just gin as the basic stuff is horrible!beers nice and cold.
Not sure why people feel the need to slam doors shut, it can be done quietly unless of course you are oblivious and have no respect for others.
Sunbeds scenario... Same everywhere in the world and the Brits have now taken over the Germans for sure. All beds with a brolly taken by 9am for sure. Maybe just those with OCD needing the same spot each day in case the the world ends have to hog beds at 6am. Your on holiday! Chill out!
Entertainment isn't as good as previous years I think TG are cutting back on bringing in as many acts from uk as poss and using their own production team who are 'average' with occasional 'fantastic' shows.
Get rid of that 'mystery voice quiz...you decide!'... It's advertised about 10 times a day around pool and very loud and really a non event.
The flamenco show was a bit dull.
This is our 4th TG holiday and this hotel is the biggest.
Considering the numbers they do very well.
We will continue our TG holidays but always like to go to a different hotel.
The Brits in the 'terrible/poor/average' category should stick to their Benidorm holidays where they can get exactly what they get at home, and half staff at British so you won't have problems with the language which you obviously struggle with. Interesting to know these folks occupations and where they live....
Well done Panorama and staff, I am embarrassed to be British at times.
