Myself, wife and daughter spent a week All Inclusive staying at the Coronas Play between the 22nd and 29th August 2013. I have to say, this is by far the best holiday we have ever had and was all down to the wonderful stay at this hotel. It was absolutely faultless in every way and deserves all the rave reviews that it gets. I think anyone who finds anything to complain about at this hotel must just be looking to find fault.
The thing that is most impressive is the attention to every detail. The hotel have put every effort into making sure that every detail is absolutely spot on.
The staff are the most friendly in any hotel we have been to and make you feel welcome from the first moment you walk through the door. We were presented with drinks on arrival including champagne and orange juice. We even had all our case taken to our room for us.
All the reception staff were either English and / or spoke perfect English and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The hotel itself is immaculate and everything just feels so clean. The room was beautiful and clean, and we had a great view out to sea from our Sea View Suite. The room was cleaned daily and always left absolutely spotless.
The restaurant was absolutely wonderful and there was something different every night to cover every taste. I read a few reviews saying the food was a bit samey, but I never found this to be the case at all.
I do like to try the local food whenever go away, but the one thing I do like to treat myself to is a large cooked breakfast. The breakfast in the Coronas Playa is the best I have had whilst on holiday. Everything was always piping hot, the bacon was lovely and crispy and the sausages were proper sausages and not just the frankfurter type things that you usually tend to get. There was a different choice of scrambled eggs every morning as well as croissants, bread, fruit, cereal and yoghurt etc.
For lunch, there was the option to get meals from one of the two snack bars by the pool or go to the restaurant. The food from all the snack bars was lovely, as was the food in the restaurant. As always, the service was second to none and the restaurant staff always made us feel welcome.
Evening meals were a real treat, and one nice aspect was to have the staff all lined up as you walked in to the restaurant. It made everyone feel a bit special. Again the food was beautiful and there was always a good variety.
As for entertainment, what can I say.... Just out of this world....
Deano and Stacey are superb hosts and they make you feel so welcome. They are truly multi-talented duo, from singing, general entertaining and will have you laughing from the start to the end of the night.
The resident duo Lez and Lesley are also absolutely brilliant. Lesley is a true entertainer and a wonderful singer.
All of them supported by Tony, Frosty and the other Thomson staff put on a great show at the end of the week. Mia Mama far outshines the original film.
If you go to the Coronas Play for nothing else, just make a trip just to experience the entertainment.
The real bonus of course is that this is a Thomson Gold hotel and there are no kids. It does feel a bit awful saying this, but we are a family, and have done our family holidays with the kids, but this year, as ours are now grown up, we wanted a peaceful holiday and that is what we got. It is the first holiday where I have been pretty much content to sit around the pool all day.
Anyway, I can not recommend this hotel highly enough and praise goes to all the staff for looking after us and making us feel so welcome.
We will definitely be going back as soon as we can and cant wait to meet everyone again.
Thanks to everyone for our best holiday ever.
