One week All Inclusive with First Choice arrived back 05/11/12. Fishing Village excellent choice. Not overdeveloped and not huge tower block appearance. Low rise and clusters.
Swimming pools in Fishing Village excellent and having choice of splash pool (for kids <12), shallow beach pool and adult pool gave you choices. Kids clubs also excellent. Gave choice to 8 year old and she went when she wanted. Always enthusiastic welcome from staff and daughter never regretted going. All First Choice staff came across as eager to help and enjoying themselves. Absolutely brilliant at making you (and your child) feel like an individual and special using first names once known. Very very good. Family activities also well implemented. Evening entertainment a bit random and disjointed. Enthusiastic though.
All Aliathon staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. Right from cleaners to receptionists to catering. Food was huge buffet style with different nightly themes (feeding 500 odd people). A weekly list would have helped. Interesting to see all ages peruse the buffet and drinks and some people certainly know how to load a plate (and again and again). Never ran out of food though.
Secure and relaxed feel to the place. Comfortable letting 8 year old make her own way to pool or the other pool to meet a friend (covert parenting). Played a couple of (bad) family games of tennis which was amusing. Shop on site. Beach 5 minutes from reception.
Overall a mighty fine holiday and rest. Holiday Village was busy but not over crowded although went during the second week of a split half term.
