I’ve just arrived back from a wonderful week at the Castell Playa with my 78 year old mother and have absolutely no complaints.
This is the 4th Thomson Gold that I have taken my mum to and the quality of what they have to offer has been very similar so I know exactly what to expect. If you’ve been to other Thomson Golds and enjoyed them you’ll enjoy this one. If you didn’t enjoy them then you’re unlikely to enjoy this one.
The hotel is clean and the staff members, without exception, are friendly and helpful and work extremely hard.
We paid extra for a superior room with a wonderful sea view. I loved it because it was in shade in the afternoon so it was lovely and cool after a day at the beach or by the pool. The safe is included in the superior rooms.
The food has something for everyone, well cooked and presented with a wide choice. I do not eat meat and found lots to take my fancy. Each evening has a different theme i.e Spanish, Italian, Asian, International.
All inclusive is exactly what it says in the brochure – full board with local drinks. The drinks that are included are clearly marked in the drinks menu which can be found on every table in the dining room and every table in the bar and in the pool bar so there shouldn’t be any confusion.
The entertainment during the day is low key with starting with games on the hour from 11.00 finishing with a daily quiz at 4pm. The evening begins around 9pm with the resident duo Mellow Yellow and then a 10pm show. This week there was a Motown singer, Beijing Acrobats, Ricky K from BGT and Spanish dancers. From the previous comments people seem to love it or hate it.
There are some lovely walks nearby with clearly marked footpaths. We walked into Son Par and Na Macaret. The local buses go to Mahon and Fornells both are worth a visit.
The hotel is on a hill but my mother didn’t have any problem walking down to the beach. It takes about 5 minutes to get down and slightly longer to get back up. However if you have mobility problems there is a bus. We enjoyed walking the length of the beach on the boardwalk.
