Friday 17th August 2007 - we have just returned from a 2 week break at the Falesia. We wanted a chill out holiday, sunbathing reading and that's what we got. We tended to sunbathe in the garden area rather than round the pool area only because the pool area was busy and there was always activities going on. In the garden area it was more relaxing and peaceful. We had a superior room with a separate lounge area and it was excellent but we did agree with a previous review that it was a bit much to have to pay 40 euros to hire the fridge for the fortnight. Food was nice buffet style but it would have been lovely to say have had a couple of nights a la carte service to break the monotony of a buffet. Not complaining about the food but sometimes it was a bit 'samey'. Drinks in the hotel were expensive so a lot of people tended to buy wine and drink on their balconies at night etc. Entertainment was not what I thought to be great - this was our first Thomson Gold we are only early 50's and spoke to some seasoned Thomson Gold travellers who said entertainment in other hotels was better, the duo Anouk were not great and the thomson team did put on some shows, singing was okay but it all seemed to be a similar theme for each show - felt there could have been more dancing opportunities if they'd had a proper singing duo/band. All in all though we did enjoy the hotel it was very relaxing and the time did not fly by.
Have fun if you go.
