Stayed at Villa Mandi for two weeks returning on 25th August. Two adults and two kids (nine and eleven)
Location-it is a good fifteen to twenty minutes walk to Los Christianos or Playa, bit too far if you were self catering and doing this walk every night but it does clearly tell you this in the brochure. not the most scenic of walks into either resort and you do see a lot of graffiti which is a shame but seems to be all around the resort. Never felt unsafe as mentioned in previous reviews.
Food- we were half board and the food was adequate but not four star quality, plenty of choice but not the most inspiring. If you choose to eat in restaurant/snack bar the prices are expensive and this was reflected in the quiet bar in the evenings-most people seem to be self catering and went into resort instead. Drinks very expensive in hotel generally 3 euros for a beer and two euros for a coke, cheaper in resort.
Accommodation - nice apartment, ask for one on the third floor overlooking pool and golf course as these are the best. Bathroom was slightly dated and the bath was scratchy. Apartment cleaned most days and towels changed regularly. We did have a slight problem with ants but the cleaning staff came in and gave it a good spray.
Pool area- lovely although slippy, wear your flip flops!! never had a problem getting a bed, you can't put towels down till nine anyway so no early risers pinching all the beds! the two main pools very nice and water temperature perfect, lots of kids but not too manic, most just having fun.
Hotel staff- generally fine in reception, restaurant and bar, some went out of way to be friendly, only one who goes out of his way to be surly!
Thomson reps - very good, helpful and approachable and a good visible presence. Didn't
use the kids clubs but the staff seemed friendly enough. Entertainment team were excellent especially Chenice and Mario who went out of their way to be friendly and welcoming. The activities they organised were good, such as cricket, rounders and aqua aerobics and brought kids and adults together which our eleven year old lad enjoyed.
Siam park is a definite must do trip- pre book your ticket, get a taxi there for just before ten am and have a fab day. It will be busy in school hols but its worth it and the staff keep it all flowing well and safely.
All in all a lovely holiday. Villa Mandi grounds are very pretty just a little bit out of resort but don't let that put you off as long as you don't mind a walk or five euros in a taxi.
