Having visited Tub Tim on several occasions and loved it, I was extremely disappointed by my visit this year.. For instance, instead of having breakfast on the beach it is now served by reception. The hot food is in containers heated by flames underneath. Sometimes these were not turned on and the food was cold. There were flies everywhere and the only fresh hot food were eggs cooked to order. The chopped fruit was covered in flies and the sliced fruit consisted of just pineapple and water melon. Not the delicious plate of fruit offered on previous visits. There is road reconstruction going on nearby and the resort has given permission for lorries to be transported by barge which moors on the beach in order to regurgitate equipment, sand etc. to build this road. The lorries went backwards and forwards throughout the day. Diggers worked to keep the sand built up for the lorries to drive on and off the barge. Certainly not peaceful or tranquil as previously experienced The water was churned up by all the activity and there were pebbles and rocks which made our entry into the sea difficult. During our stay the diggers and lorries were there approximately every other day. I had been advised that the work would have been completed before my visit but this was certainly not the case.
On a positive note the staff were as helpful and charming as ever. Nothing was too much trouble.
