you will know from previous posts that I was trying to decide what hotel to go for between Diar Lemdina and Les Orangers and even a few others.
I had decided to go with Diar Lemdina, because TA ratings for it and Les O were very similar and the rooms in Diar Lem seem to be a bit bigger and more facilities. There was also a bit of a saving.
However, now I notice that it has recently (as in during the last week) slipped from number 5 to number 20! I am hoping that this is because many of the top 20 hotels are so closely matched score wise that even one average review can cause this. The drop in ratings seems to be due to a small number of 3 out of 5 ratings.
But it does give me worry - some of the other hotels have stayed at the top 5, and obviously a few others have stormed ahead in the last week.
It does make me wonder if the reliability of the TA rankings should be taken with a pinch of salt???
So, here I am, again faced with the dilemma I thought I had closed! Diar Lemdina or somewhere else??? This week is my last chance to change my hotel booking, as I will be making the final payment to the travel agent this week. So its now or never!
We want a really good AI, nice pool and beach area with plenty of sun loungers in good quality and shade if needed. A nice room with a few extra touches - this is kind of a second honeymoon for us, so we want it to feel really special and a bit luxurious. I wouldn't mind the option of some keep fit activities such as aqua aerobics or yoga or pilates, but not keen on any major activity (definitely not looking for a modern 'Butlins'! lol). Good food and close to amenities outside the hotel also.
We opted for Diar due to the room quality and food gets good reviews. Would like a couples or adults only hotel, but they seem much more expensive than the others. (The extra restaurants in the Les O did appeal, but then I heard that there are only 3 options each night, and being veggie I doubt we could make much use of it.)
So, in my last chance saloon, can anyone help?
