Chose this holiday to be with our 5 year old grand daughter who had an amazing time and so I'm sure would rate it 5* +!
BUT ...... For the adults in the party in this aging isolated hotel the story was of disappointment . The cooks (clearly not chefs) managed to ruin most meat dishes and generally catered for the fast food brigade. Even the BBQ night meat was tough and inedible suggesting a poor quality/ cheap produce being purchased. The self service meals (incl breakfast) were the most successful.
The Thomson staff/entertainers were outstanding for the kids despite the strict formulaic nature of the pre-recorded and oft-repeated presentations. It seems head office prescribe the exact nature of the entertainment to the minute thus precluding any innovation by the guys and girls on site.
Our first room (113) was next to the pool chlorification plant and is to be avoided. Our second room (arranged with minimum of fuss by the Thomson rep (Gary) was excellent being on the second floor with a view of the golf course ( but note the green keepers start work at first light!). Beware that many room's only ventilation is through their patio doors which, if on ground floor, you probably want closed (and locked) at night. The so-called 'air-con' appears more just to blow cool air around as opposed to genuinely chilling the air.
So for us 'oldies' it was great to see our little one having such a good time but that was really the only saving grace for this aging holiday complex.
Would definitely try a Thomson family holiday again ......just not here at the Villa Mandi.
