Having stayed at the Garopa three years ago with my wife we had an idea what to expect, but this time we had our two year old granddaughter with us .Its seems that Thomson have removed some seats from there flight, still a bit cramped when your 6-5" but better than it was.Room very clean and fairly spacious in block 4 which over looked the beach and a beautiful sun set every evening, overall the food in the main restaurant was ok if not a bit plan, choice for children could be better has pizza or pasta wears a bit thin.Had a couple of trips into Santa Maria, you get hassled a bit by the street sealers and shop owners but a polite no thanks was enough. It was a good relaxing weeks break ,on the beach and around the pool was fine. the entertainment is a bit samey but ok and they do work very hard,the childrens area could do with some money being spent, it has a swing missing, the younger ones slides was just a climbing frame because the slides were missing and is an accident waiting to happen?But cant wait to go again, well done.
