This was our first Thomson Gold holiday and overall was really good. We do normally go platinum on all our holidays but wanted a decent,cheap holiday for the start of the holiday season. Firstly, being in our 20's we were a bit apprehensive about going on a Thomson Gold holiday as they are probably more suited for the older person but after a few chats we thought why not, and we were pleasantly surprised
The good bits- The hotel itself is built in a beautiful bay, it has stunning views and is very picturesque. The hotel looks more than its official 3* rating, the hotels very clean,easy to navigate and theres always a member off staff to help you. The rooms were very modern/stylish and looked really smart, great views from the balcony and generally quiet. The food is as good as any 4*/5* hotels we have stayed in,theres a great selection and has something for everybody. The chefs and the waiters are brilliant, especially Bador (he normally does the fish in the evening) and Felipe who was our waiter most nights. The waiters in particular do work hard, they are there in the mornings for breakfast and in the evenings for dinner service and in the pool bars throughout the day so they really do put a lot of effort into there jobs! Cala Llonga itself doesn't have a great deal there to do, but its so easy to get to the nearby towns, either by bus or by boat
The not so good bits- Nothing on this holiday was bad, the only problem we did have was,we did feel extremely young at this hotel being that it is a Gold and we did get stared at quite a bit from some of the older guests staying there. The night time entertainment isn't the best, id say if you were under 50, you will not like it! If you're looking to spend you're holiday on the beach, we wouldn't recommend Cala Llongas beach as we found it to windy there(and full of jellyfish), but if you travel to Santa Eulalia they have a better,but smaller beach there in a more lively town.
Cala Llonga does have a a fair few shops from you're little newsagents to restaurants and to clothes shops that sell branded clothing-e.g-billabong,quicksilver etc. All within a 5minute walk from the hotel
We would recommend going to/doing- Ibiza Town,Santa Eulalia and the San Antonio Sunset trip on the boat.
All in all, a brilliant holiday in a great hotel. Just what we wanted, We wouldn't say no to going back there, but would choose Santa Eulalia to stay in purely as there is more to do.
