PRO.S The waterpark is brilliant for kids and big kids, and we thought the food was very good, always found something we liked. Also the Italian restaurant was good, and we ate at the snack bar quite a few times, all good. Supermarket was very handy, open all hours with a wide range of items, also bike hire, which was...

(This is an answer I have to someone who asked a question because they were worried by the most recent bad review - I'd like to point out that most of that review is Thomas Cooks problems not Caretta Beach!) We arrived back yesterday and I am devastated to have left! I couldn't disagree more with that bad review! Building...

1. When we booked our holiday we booked for 15 people. The travel agent incorrectly spelt names despite us writing them down on the day of booking, leading to us making several trips wasting petrol to rectify their mistakes. We then added on 6 other people and again they made mistakes with names. We added two people on who flew...

If you are looking for a holiday with a lot of drunken polish men and a really bad hotel management that doesn't listen. Then this is the perfect holiday place for you. We didn't get the room we payed for, there was a dirty dog in the kids pool. Lots of polish families that wanted to party all night long....

Large family hotel with a waterpark in connection with the hotel. Very nice pools incl. two large children pools. Had an apartment, double bed, and a single one. Small kitchen also. Very noisy in the "english" end of the hotel. Entertainment really poor. Hotel is close to a large range of restaurants. Had problems with the aircondition, it worked on...
