Have just got back from St Petes (22.09.12 - 29.09.12), what a fabulous place. The hotel was right on the beach where we could watch the dolphins swimming in the sea. Unfortuantely the hotel was going through refurbishment at the time we were there which, although it didn't mar our enjoyment, did add some noise and disruption. We booked mailnly because of it being the quieter of the Tradewinds hotels and it had an adult only pool, but unfortunately the adult pool was closed for the week we were there. Virgin Holidays did not inform us of any refurbishment taking place. We paid an extra £400 for a front facing room (no balcony just patio doors) and these were the rooms being reburbished at the time we were there. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, just as well as there was no representation from any Virgin Reps in the resort. If anyone is going there quite soon, I would check with your tour company before hand.
