Have just watched an amazing show put on by the entertainment staff. They work really hard and at the end of the show invite the audience on the stage to dance. The work effort that they put in is amazing and non stop. Special mention to Panda, Omar and Elias to name a few.

I like that the dive shop is right there on the beach and easy access to coordinate my water adventures. the beach entertainment activities were... More

Our room (in the 4000 block as requested), was clean and in a great location. There were plenty of bars, plenty of lounge chairs on the beach and... More

Travelled with Thomson on the Dreamliner in Pre.Eco. and had a lovely flight. Comfy seats and good service from the crew with a nice meal...which surprised me. Straight through customs and on to the nice cool coach...with a couple of cervezas from the vendor outside. No hassle unlike some stories I'd heard about. Good coach driver gave us some local...
