I have recently returned from my holiday to Altinkum's Palm Wings Beach Resort (12th Sept - 19th Sept) and must say I was apprehensive at first after reading some rather negative reviews the morning I left. But I must say I didn't agree with most comments that people had written ...
Yes I agree that they seemed to have a wasp problem, however I can't say they bothered me. The wasps were around the pool bar area but I never had a problem with them around by the baby pool or main pool.
I completely disagree with the comments about rude staff, I thought they couldn't have been more polite. They would often have mini conversations with us and always interacted very well with my niece. There were several occasions where they also were more than willing to find tables for us in busy times. In fact one member from my party pointed out that he found the Thomson staff more rude if he was being honest.
Many people complained about the food, and again I suppose this depends on what your expectations have. There was a huge variety of food available though this tended to be repeated on several nights. However this didn't bother anyone in my party. We were quite happy to eat what was on offer. The food was never piping hot and chips were cold when we got them back to the table, but again this wasn't a problem for us. We just avoided the chips. I would advise people to arrive at the restaurants by 7:15 if you want a decent seat (outside was nice) as it soon filled up! I never really ate at the snack bar as nothing interested me, but others from my party did and they seemed to enjoy it.
I stayed in the hotel, and it was always cleaned to a fairly high spec. One negative comment to be made was that the cleaners never came until late in the afternoon, so I couldn't get my new bottle of water until the evening. This obviously couldn't be helped as they had a lot of rooms I get through. Also on one occasion I left a mostly drank bottle I water on the side, and because it wasn't empty I didn't even receive a new one for the next day, which I was disappointed in. My sister stayed in a bungalow, which was huge. They had 3 beds and a travel cot for 3 of them and they found everything great. It was kept clean and they even received rose petals on a couple of days which I thought was a very sweet touch! :)
