We love Talle, but usually stay in Winter. Our only complaint is that over the years the heated pool had gotten less heated than it used to. I could swim in in Winter but not the last few years - the temperature has been turned down we think and borders on cold - even the kids complain.
We stayed the week of Christmas also this year but this time in a villa, which we paid a whopping $2300 for! Really, you could get a lot more modern accommodation for this price as the villas are a little plain and tired - even run-down a little. I think we will look around for 'nicer' accommodation next year. if your after 4 star, then this aint it - maybe 3 star at a pinch. Beds are fairly comfy. Position is perfect, just disappointed in the standard of the villa. We would prefer to take our caravan as we usually do.
At christmas time, they insisted that we all wear red wristbands, which were a pain, and I have no idea why, when no-one ever checked whether you were wearing them or not, security was pretty hopeless as we saw every Tom, Dick and Harry come and leave the park as they pleased whether they were paid guests, visiting friends or relatives or just felt like using the pool. Some even came in and set up for the day on the grass directly in front of our villa, again, no-one questioning whether they were paid guests or not. They can just walk in off the street. Again, for the price we paid, not good enough standards.
We do love Talle, but sorry managers - not good enough, and found you get a bit of attitude from some of the staff too. Treated just a number, which I can understand but if you ask a question, well the answer usually comes with attitude - bit off-putting.
