Just came back from 14 days Been to 2 other HV's. The old Majorca one which we loved and the one in Corfu. Best bits Reps were better here, not so 'in your face' and more mature, in a good way. Lovely people. Views from block one were beautiful. Sea view balcony is best that we have ever had. Local... More

We are a family of 6 just returned from the Hv. We had been here a couple if years ago and had a great holiday however it was not the case this time. Unfortunately this time we were in block 2 and had connecting rooms facing a road. We had specifically requested block 1 having 4 children under 5 and... More

Great setup for children with excellent kids club staff. Would have been useful if there was some notice about coldness of water play areas especially for toddlers so could have taken suitable clothing for them. Also hill between blocks was not particularly child friendly!

We are already considering returning here for next year. We spent 10 days here and can honestly say that our expectations were well and truly exceeded. We had a room in block 1 and I would say that if you have the option you should try for block 1. Block 2 is a short walk from everything and there is... More

Just returned today from 10 nights at the holiday village in Portugal and I have to say very poor in comparison to the other holiday villages and for that reason I would not return. Pools - great kids pool which we sat around everyday as towels were out very early round the main pool and I'm sorry but refuse to... More

We have been on many of the Thomsons Holiday Villages, so we know the standards that are in place for a hotel to be classed as a "Holiday Village". Unfortunately we were located in the Block 2 area which we nicknamed "Soweto" as it was basically the forgotten land. We weren't meeted and greeted by a Thomsons rep and got... More

I am not a great flyer and this was my first time on a plane in 20 years. Picked this destination based on flight time and wanting all inclusive to limit the hassles and stress. Flight out from BHX was great and arriving into Faro we got through baggage etc easily with reps greeting us and directing us out to... More

Returned in Aug 14 from the HV and have to say what a great place this is for families of young children. Never been to a HV before so did not really know what to expect. Hotel Clean throughout, always saw cleaners cracking on with their work, even saw them pressure washing the main drive at one point. Bedding changed... More

Very clean, good food and lots for the kids (aged 8 & 6) to do. The slide pool is much better for this age group. The reps stay around the main pool and don't come down to the slide pool which is a shame as you miss out on the activities announced at the main pool eg zorbing, family archery.... More
