Visited the last week of the season. Not a lot open in the local area & places that were open were closed towards the end of the week. Think everyone was at the hotel was on AI (which was good as we've been offered SC in other years in places where everything was shut). The hotel

Dear Lesley G Thank you for your review. As you write it was a great time for all and we are of course happy about that. It was at the end off season, but all the things except one bar have been open during the last week. Regarding the food, we are glad to hear that you have found something to eat every day, we will look at your suggestions to the kids buffet, so there also can be some healthy choices for them. Regarding the Italian we sorry to hear that it has not been an different experience then going to main restaurant as it should be, so we will of course have to look at that, also the idea about the menu been posted I take a look at for next season. Regarding the earthquake, no it was not a nice experience, We don't hope that you and your family have felt unsafe the last days of your stay. Luckily it does not happen so often. If we experience earthquakes or fire, we have a plan on the door in every room telling our guests want to do. In cases like this one, there is not much to do, other then get out of the building and to the meeting points. I know the staff and a rep from Thomas Cook was there to make sure that everybody was out and alright. But of course if you have any suggestions to something that we can do different or to make you even more comfortable, we want to know. We hope despite the earthquake to see you and your family again some day. Kind regards Louise

Dear Emsulli Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you all in all have had a nice holiday. Regarding the cleaning, we are sorry to hear that you feel that there haven't been cleaned proper the hole week, the only day where there is no cleaning is Saturday, but the rest of the week we are doing everything in the room. And in the bathroom, we are aware that it can flood with water on the floor, unfortunately that is a problem on most of the Island and it is difficult to prevent it from happen. Regarding the swim up pools, they are a shared pool between all the ground floor rooms, but if any from the first floor also have used them, we are sorry about that and we are looking into a better way so that you can get in and out of the pool more easier. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed the food, but sorry to hear that you feel that the quality have drop during the week, this is of course not how it should be. Thank you for choosing Caretta Beach and hope to see you again some day. Kind regards Louise

Dear purplehallway We are sorry to hear that you have had a bad experience at Caretta Beach. Unfortunately the pools can be cold this time of the year as our pools are not heated. Regarding the entertainment and the fact that our pools don't have disabled access we will take a look at. Kind regards Louise

Hello, We’ve booked a duplex apartment for summer 2019 for a family of 5. I’m interested in finding out more about these two floor apartments before we come as we will be sleeping on different levels to some of our children. The balcony is upstairs I believe? Is it a normal door into the ground floor? Is this with or without a balcony? Are these apartments always ground and first floor please? Thank you.
I’m sorry I can’t answer this as we stayed on the ground floor

Sorry to be sound but it would really annoy me if I payed extra for a swim up room and other people who hadn’t where just using it.common sense surely would tell you that if you’ve not payed for a swim up room it’s not your pool to swim in ???
The swim up are for the ground floor rooms, that means that you share the pools with other people on the ground floor. On the site of Thomas Cook it also says shared pool.
