I seem to remember reading some older reviews about wine only being served in the restaurant at the Resta Reef, Is this the case?

Does this mean you cant get a glass a wine in the bars or even at the beach bar late afternoon?

Hi Beverley

Yes this is right! We are booked for Christmas and new Year and when I found this out I emailed Thomson, who, in their normal don't care attitude confirmed this! You'll see it's not in any of their brochures about this even though they should have a copy of the fact sheet from Resta saying only with meals! I don't blame the hotel but our very own tour company! I said they had missold the holiday to us, but they came back with loads of waffle! Do what we are going to do and have a good time and not worry too much and find something else to drink!! If you pm me with your email, I'll forward the emails I have from Thomson

At the moment Thomson facebook page is awash with complaints-people saying the after sales service stinks!

That's because the aftercare does stink!

We had cases damaged coming home from MA and it took them months to compensate us. The next trip they lost our transfers and nearly left us at the airport (good job we were front if the visa queue!) messed up the carpark so we had to pay £54 overstay fee!

We had a great time on holiday though.

The flight home often sells out of snacks so feed up before you leave as there us not much to buy in the way of food at the airport.

Good Afternoon Beverley

This is Sherif, Hotel Manager @ Resta Reef Resort.

You are correct, wine is served during lunch and dinner times only as stipulated in all of our agreements.

However, we do offer wine outside meal times at a pretty attractive promotional price.

I remain meanwhile at your disposal for any further assistance.

Kind Regards

Sherif Afifi
