Ok so this is year 3 of our trips to Lakitira with mark warner. So how was it. Well it was hot hot hot. It was unseasonably hot so the cycling was changed to early morning to avoid some of the heat. However as parents of 3 small children this didnt allow us to cycle together but a quick word to Jono and he arranged for some of the easier cycles to happen at 9.30 to allow my wife and I to cycle together. Every year I bring my running shoes and every year they go back without having done more than take me to a circuit class or a quick cycle to malibu bar to listen to the 80s music and look at the sea. It's very hard to fault the resort or the staff or the food. It's well staffed and being spread out it doesn't really feel too busy. However as we are coming from Scotland we do come at the end of June so we miss the Peak season by about a week. It definitely felt much busier when we flew home yesterday. My boys are 10, 7 and 3 and there's loads for them to do and the childcare is excellent. My oldest son can now sign himself out of club if he doesn't fancy an activity which was mainly show prep he skipped. The waterfront staff and childcare staff were excellent and Katy and Jade did a grand job with my older boys.
The equipment was all good and the food was great although I must stop eating so many puddings. We go the same time each year and the kids have built up friendships with other kids who have been going the same time each year so it's a very easy holiday for us.
Have I got a complaint ...quite simply no. We were in the village part of the resort again and the rooms had been done up since last year so they were excellent and quiet.
Could Mark Warner do anything to improve things no but how about a scottish flight.? I'm sure it would be very popular judging by the amount of Scots there flying from Heathrow and Manchester
I windsurfed with Simon and because it's quiet when we go I had 1 2 1 lessons for 3 days!!!
My only tip would be don't try to eat at 7.30 on a Saturday night when it's changeover day as that's when the welcome drinks have just finished and the restaurant gets really busy. Go down to breeze bar till 8.30 have a drink and watch the sunset the have dinner at an outside table when it's quiet.
We did chat to a lot of guests about their experiences of other Mark Warner resorts as we've done them before but not with children. We were thinking next year we might try somewhere else . However the thing that became clear was that lots of people have tried other resorts then came back to Lakitira. It's not that the others aren't good it's just Laktira seems to be the best if you've kids and hits all the right spots. So next year we will be going back for our fourth trip...says it all doesn't it. Big thanks to Jono and the troops. See you next year!!!
