Just got back from CPH, what a wonderful holiday we had, just two adults looking to just relax with no stress, it was perfect for that.
The hotel is so clean, room was basic but absolutely fine, looking over the back garden. Our bed was hard but comfy and we slept very well, air con was quiet and worked well.
Staff were great, always happy and helpful, lovely lady in shop and in Pool bar.
Pool was brilliant, beautiful and clean, but yes people did seem to leave towels on chairs through the day, and we had to get more sunbeds or wait for one, which was ok.
The beach is a couple of minutes away and I would say one of the best beaches, and in the evening when going for a walk, no one was there, not sure where everyone was as sometimes as we were told the hotel way full, but never felt that way.
This is the first all inclusive holiday that I have been on, and first of all I didnt like the food, but once I got used to the lay out and what to look for I was fine, sometimes could have done with being a bit warmer, but if you queued and had an omelette or pizza it was perfect.
The drinks were great, pineapple juice from morning til night :) with a few vodkas thrown in!!
There was fruit and cake and biscuits at the pool bar most of the day, but it was the same everyday. You can get tea and coffee at the pool bar as well.
We only had lunch once, and then were either going round the island or on the beach at the BayWatch Bar which did amazing burgers.
We didnt rate the entertainment, as it was mainly for kids, and we didnt have any!
There arent any shops around so definately get a car, we had one for two days which was ample and travelled the island from top to bottom, it is a truly beautiful island and some very warm and friendly people. thank you Chris, our Thompson rep, for getting us a car.
We were told the transfer would be 2 hrs but it was less than that, and fun going over on the ferry.
Its not a place to go for teenagers,drinking etc, its a place to go to relax and enjoy.
Would we go again!! if I needed a really relaxing break then yes, but there are so many places to see :)
It did say there was a Spa, but we didnt find it :(
Thank you to CPH staff for such a lovely time x
Fay and Tim
