We had a week at the hotel: the weather was excellent.
We had a room with a sea view which had a lovely view accross the bay. We were quite satisfied with the room which was of adequate size, reasonable furnished and compared fovourable with other Spanish hotels we have stayed in (we have stayed in 6 Gold hotels), it is only a 3 star hotel. The seaview rooms also face east so you get the sun in the room in the morning, and shade in the afternoon. The food was excellent, again following the Gold format of other hotels. If you haven't stayed in a Thomson Gold hotel it's a bit like Marks and Spencer the location my be different but inside they are generally all the same.
The staff were all very helpful.
Our only critism of the hotel is that the pool area is a little small for the size of the hotel, and there were not many umbellas, especially around the pool bar. Be warned if you leave your towels on a sunbed before 10am the staff will remove them if you are not there. This does stoppeople reseving sunbeds and then going out for the day.
The resort is very quite, there is not a lot to do.The Romani Resataurant near the Spar supermarket is a pleasant place for a drink, snack or meal. It has nice views accross the bay, the staff are very helpful and in the evening they don't mind if you just want a drink or a coffee. The prices are reasonable, 2,95 eros for a 500cc San Miquel.
There are buses but they are fairly infrequent, particularly on Sundays.
If you like a holiday where you spend all day around the pool or on the beach, you will like this hotel. If you like to get around you will need to hire a car.
Other travellers have critised the deposits for the towels and TV remote, this is a bit of a nuisance but you do get your money back. The hotel have presumable had to do this as there will always be a minority who will not look after these items, you only have to see the trolleys just dumped in a supermarket car park to realise there are a minority who could'nt care less about other peoples property.
Other travellers have mentioned Thomson's use of First Choice planes, we found these planes less comfortable than Thomson' own planes, they seem to have less legroom. We first experenced these planes last December on a flight to Lanzerote.
