Yes, despite many holiday makers not being too careful themselves about hygiene and cleanliness, Papillon Ayscha makes sure that its own standards do not slip, and is exceptional in pursuit of safety and caring for our health. Maybe this isn't what most people would put first in a review, but with the temperatures being what they are and the difficulties that this can cause I mention it first - because the staff here care from front entrance to toilets on the beach (and the Beach cleaning is truly exceptional)
I mention secondly, the Guest Relation Team, because next year we are hoping bring my Son & wife and 2 grandchildren so that they can experience a really good holiday (and the grandchildren need separate bedrooms, being a late teenage boy and girl). We needed to find out if this was a possiblity roomwise. Well, Andrea and (I'm sorry I can't remember your name, lovely lady), couldn't be more helpful if they tried - I was taken on a guided tour of the Hotel from Villa's to seafront to be shown the various permutations available for us - AND it is going to be possible! (Thomsons do not show or seem to be able to be helpful about this at home - which makes it very difficult for us to book). I understand that the Hotel is to undergo refurbishement before next year, which will be nice - After 20 years, staying 'So Sweet So Beautiful' does need a makeover to keep it so - just like the rest of us- 'tho in my case probably a lost cause. Not being millionaires, I just hope this doesn't price Papillon out of our price range, as it feels like an old friend to us now and we don't like losing really good friends.
I believe it would be very useful for anyone thinking of going to this Hotel, to read our previous in depth reviewing of this hotel by going to 'meandrog' reviews 6/10/10 - Jan & July 2012 (and you will see why we come back here.
What's different this year? The big musical Shows which were exceptional (in our view), have been replaced - not worse, but different. More Moscow state circus/ Beijing Acrobats/various dance shows.-we preferred the Mamma Mia-Pirates of Caribbean etc, but thats purely our preference. Although the British, German & French were noticable by their absence in the time we were there, the other Europeans were very well represented & the compere translated almost everything into each Country's language - and exceptional feat by him (if a somewhat longwinded way to start any show).
.We are older now, so observe more than take part, but it seemed to us that children were exceptionally well cared for by the Animation team - and Burhan always made a point of coming over to us at various times during our stay to make sure we were Ok.
So all in all a really good Hotel - thank you
As you are refurbishing
- For us 'Oldies' (but not past it), might I suggest that the 1st floor bar area could be better utilised - a lot of us (of whatever nationality), enjoy a dance or singsong (keyboard or possibly with someone like the accordianist/singer who plays throughout dinner in the evening). - the Beach Disco doesn't fill this slot for us.
