Thomson flight times 'Very Early'

I notice Thomson arrive at 5:30am to Mombasa, hotel arrival about 8am I guess.Does anyone know if a room is ready & are we on All Incl straight away for breakfast?

Next is departure. 4am!!!! from hotel. Party or sleep the night before.

Staying at Southern Palms.

Not sure if rooms will be ready, but breakfast will be, as well as the pool and the beach:)

I would party all night:) Or keep the day before you depart a long day (wake up early, keep active all day), so that you sleep early, and then up by 3 am to depart at 4.

The reps may do their welcome meeting if the rooms aren't ready. Their ploy to get you to buy their expensive trips before you get the option to look around. On the return trip home you can always doze on the plane.

When Staying at Kilifi we normally get to the hotel between 7-7:30 after arriving in Kenya on the 530 flight and the rooms are always ready for us. We unpack have a shower, breakfast and are then out and about by 9am

For our return trip we just spend our last day relaxing by the pool have a good dinner and then have an early night. On departure day we take a private transfer to the airport and book it for an hour after the Thomson coach departs this way we miss the scrum at departures

Thanks for the replies guys.

Tembofan hope the water levels are low where you are. Of course the reps will catch us whilst asleep.

Bruce569 how much is a private transfer. It's quite a distance isn't it? Would a local taxi be good?

At the hour you will be arriving you will get your room ready depending with the month you will traveling,if its a busy season i fear it may not be ready for but breakfast for will be provided. All the best

From several previous threads, the consensus seems to be as Keron said, that the cost should be around 5,000/- which is currently around £35
