It was a culture shock at the Playa Olid because we went straight from a cruise on Thomson Majesty round the Canaries and dining in a lovely restaurant with white tablecloths, being waited on and eating ‘posh’ food to dining in what I can only describe as a canteen with formica tables. However, even though it wasn’t the best buffet we have had in a hotel, the food was all eatable and nothing really wrong with it and there was always a choice. The positive was that we had stayed in an inside cabin on the cruise which was about half the size of just the lounge area in our very nice one bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking the pool and the sea in the distance. We were on the 5th floor in room 502A.
The staff were all very friendly and service was good. We were all inclusive so we enjoyed having a drink whenever we wanted (Baileys in coffee – lovely!) and knowing it wouldn’t be going on our bill to pay at the end of the holiday. There wasn’t much happening in an evening, there was a mini disco at 8.30 pm but there weren’t many children in, then there was supposed to be crazy game show at 9 pm each evening but that didn’t happen. At 9.30 pm for about 45 minutes there was a show on the lines of belly dancing, flamenco dancing, juggling, singing etc. Activities were arranged during the day like stretching, table tennis, darts etc., but not many people took part.
You had to walk down to the promenade which meant, of course, you had to walk up to get back! However, unless you had walking difficulties it didn’t really take very long and we didn’t find it a problem, but there are always taxis available. There was also a bus stop outside to various places.
