My wife and I were persuaded by some close friends to perhaps give the Italian Lakes a miss for our second holiday this year and go to Cala Llonga in Ibiza and stay at the Fiesta Hotel on an All inclusive basis. We agreed to change the habit of a life time and opted for Ibiza. We let Thomson holidays take care of everything and they did so without a single hitch. What a wonderful hotel and the room we were in did have a balcony and a superb view of the whole of the bay, it was pure vista, it was a large room with a large bed and the amenities were such that we settled in within the first 15 minutes. The shower room was exceptional, Getting the hang of the very large shower cubicle and the actual shower unit took about five minutes then we could have water at a perfect temperature hitting us (One at a time) from every angle (or both at once if thats what you like).
The dining arrangements could not have been better for any of the meals we chose to partake of at the hotel and if we wanted to be out during lunch time there was a very varied and enjoyable packed lunch available to us by advising the front desk the evening before.
Breakfast: 07.00 to 10.00am was a Continental or cooked or both if we had wanted both so top marks for that meal.
Lunch 13.30 to 15.00 unbelievable choice of starters, main courses and deserts for a meal at that time of day. Top top marks.
Dinner 19.00 to 22.00 Choice choice and more choice and quality quality and more quality, superby cooked. We cant give it marks because it is off the chart.
From our perspective Sun, sea, beach, big pool and jaccuzi that all lend themselves to a lazy hazy day of total relaxation...with a bar no more than 20 feet away for our free drinks yes free or ther was always someone on hand to bring us our choice of drinks if we were feeling extra lazy.
When we felt energetic there was always some kind of competitive game going on around the pool area, not at all noisy and quite low key so that it doesnt intrude into the bliss of others luxuriating in the pool area.
We enjoyed the evening entertainment immensly, sorry we cant describe it as it was different every time with exception of Adrian who while we were there was the resident entertainer with a great voice and a clever knack of sounding just like whoever it was that made the song he was singing top of the charts.
Just one dissapointment...yeah gotta tell you this. We were there at the time when the Icelanding volcano errupted and we naturally asked the very well informed and most pleasant Alan aka Jimmy what the drill would be if the dust affected our return flight and his response was "you stay put in the hotel on a continuance of your All inclusive arrangement until we can repatriate you" Happy days! I guesswe we could put up with that. The disspoint ? we returned home on schedule.
Remember though, it is couples as thereis no accommodation available for children.
