We have just come back on 19th Aug 2008 after spending 2 weeks.
We went with our son,13 and my brother and his wife and their 2 kids, 6 and 10. They went last year and asked us to come back with them as they enjoyed it that much, especially the kids entertainment both day and night.
Unfortunately things were different this time.
The pool was constantly dirty, lots of guests complained but little got done.
The tiles around the pool area and steps were lethal, i saw numerous children and adults fall over.
Too many steps around the complex which weren't child friendly.
The rooms although spacious and clean needed revamping as they were beginning to look very tired.
Due to average food in the restaurant we ventured out every night into Las Americas or Los Christianos which was about a 14 euro round fare per night.
The taxi service from the hotel was excellent.
Now to the main problem, the Thomson Reps, the main difference from last year was that this years reps were useless, particularly Supa Dupa Dawn, they lacked any get up and go and all seemed not happy to be there. We met numerous family's the same as my brothers who had booked up straight away to come back due to the entertainment and reps and they were all bitterly disappointed, we only had 3 professional acts in 14 days and one of them was rubbish all the other days we had to make do with Thomson reps performing, this was the main difference form last year. Dawn seemed to be like a little Hitler, making up her own rules during games and one day humiliated a friend Terry, that much that he swam off in disgrace.
The sun bed situation became the main focus of conversation each day, A group of us went down at 8am each morning but weren't allowed near the beds until 9am even if they had finished putting them out, if anybody edged towards the beds they got shouted at , it became such fun that we laughed about it all day.
In the end the guests who went down early organized the sun beds quite amicably. To give them there dues after a mutiny one morning they brought in extra beds.
Even with all these problems we still managed to enjoy ourselves but won't be rushing back.
The one plus side was the hotel staff were always happy and helpful.
