We booked our holiday with Thomas Cook. On arrival first impressions were great, the lady that was head of security showed us to our room and showed us how everything worked. We stayed in room 405, we had previously read reviews that these rooms were horrible and you'd need to upgrade rooms but initially everything was good. We asked for... More

We spent the first week in March at Djeliba and had a lovely time. Room was basic but clean and towels changed daily. All rooms have fans which we found enough and did not purchase the air con. Breakfast was plentiful and lots of choice, the pool area is lovely and was not over crowded at all. Poco Loco bar... More
