After a terrible start to our holiday, we were transfered from Almond Beach Village to Fairmont Glitter Bay and were delighted with what met our eyes on the first morning. I have never known staff so willing and helpful with always a friendly smile and attitude towards guests and their work. We had originally planned to get married at Almond Beach Village and in transfering didn't know whether it would still go ahead. However John who was the consierge and wedding co-ordinator told us that there would be no problem and we left everything in his hands, and they certainly made it a day to remember, the location by the lilly pond was fantastic, all the wedding flowers were beautiful in fact to say that John only had two days to organise it ....what more can I say. It was 'our day' and we were made to feel very special indeed.
The room that we had was very comfortable with ample space even with 2 boys aged 11 and 10 who had their own beds in the lounge and there was still plenty of room.
The restaurants - a little disappointing as it was a set menu for 2 weeks although the quality of the food was excellent. If you were on the meal plan reception could give you vouchers to eat at three other restaurants that were a short taxi ride away one is Carambola and would highly recommend this, the setting is stunning and you can hob nob with the rich and famous here.
The beach was outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for the staff to get you your sun lounger or drinks and lunch or even a jet ski. Complimentary watersports if you were a guest at both Glitter Bay and the Royal Pavillion.
We made some lovely friends both guests and staff and my youngest son played football with Wes Brown of Manchester United.
All in all it was the best holiday that my family and I have had and will return sometime in the near future.
