We returned from a fantastic holiday to the Iberotel lamaya 2 weeks ago. Absolutely great holiday with no problems whatsoever.
Gigo the chap on the beach who did the henna tattoos was lovely and my sons both had a design on their arm plus their name in arabic on our 2nd day. ( I had my name in arabic done for free on my wrist - it was great as all the waiters knew my name). Gigo said that the tattoo would last 2 weeks, so to go back on our last day and he would re-apply it for free. We did this the day before we came home and all was great. After about 2 days at home the tatoos both started to itch, become red and inflaimed. The boys were in great discomfort and we had to get an emergency appt with our GP. 2 weeks on and they are still red, inflaimed and itchy after antihistamines daily. I have since read on the internet that black henna is banned in many countries and that it has harmful chemicals that potentially will cause allergic reactions to certain dyes, medicines etc for life. DONT have it done, however tempting OR look up the facts about the harm from black henna tattoos BEFORE you go. The scar can take up to a year to go and some people have been scarred for life.
The Thompson rep told us about the dangers of the water, not to book trips with the people along the beach as their mini-buses wouldn't be insured etc, to wash hands after handling money. I think they should also warn about the tattoos.
