Just retuned from our 4th vist to Turtle bay, 1st time for ten years. There have been lots of changes to the hotel in that time and all of them good, most of the staff that where there 10 years ago are still there and it was good to reminice with old photos. All in all this is still the best all inclusive hotel we have stayed at anywhere, however, it is the first time we have ever travelled with Thompson and without any question it will be the last.
Where to begin ?
Plane - to small for long haul flights, outbound 1 toilet broke after about 1hour,inbound 1 toilet never worked at all.
Onboard entertainment - A choice of 1 film,comedy channel,etc played on a loop so if you missed the begining you had to wait for it to come round again, unless of course you paid the extra.
Food - Outbound the food was border line inedible took 3 hours to serve and a further hour to clear away, this was a night flight the cabin lights where on for 4 hours.Inbound the food was reasonable..
And now the staff - I am going to keep this short and polite. Slow,scruffy,impolite They would be better served working for the tax office at least there you expect to be treated badly.
As I said this is the first time we have ever had the "pleasure" of traveleing with Thompson it will certainly be the last, Turtle bay is a fantastic hotel and we will return but even if I have to pay more I will not travel with Thompson.
