Just back from the above hotel. Lovely and clean everywhere including rooms. Air conditioning was silent and so were the fans and both were certainly needed in that heat in order to sleep.
Far too many people. Instead of just going into the restaurants and sitting down you had to queue because they had closed one of the 3 restaurants (the Grill). and so therefore the other two restaurants had to bear the brunt. Tables had to be to booked every night. Breakfast and lunch had to be queued for. This is an all inclusive hotel. There was nothing to see outside of the complex, no bars or restaurants outside of the hotel, not even a courtesy bus to the beach, although we realize this is Thomsons first year here so hopefully this will improve next year. This a a perfect hotel for young couples with children because of the entertainment and swimming pools etc. but not quite so good for the over 60's.
Along with a courtesy bus it would be a good idea to have a taxi tank just outside the hotel.
Apart from the amount of people there scurrying around like ants we enjoyed ourselves but would not go back again. It was a very small airport so once in the departure lounge you could not buy a newspaper or book, there was just the usual shop selling alcohol cigarettes and refreshments. Please take note a newspaper or books cannot be purchased in the departure lounge. This has to be done before you enter there.
