Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.
The first sight of the hotel was a great one, at the end of the small town of Sant Tomas. The welcome on reception was excellent and we were pointed to our rooms. The room is basic but very spacious and had all that you needed. Disappointing that had to pay extra for safe. Staff in restaurant weren't the friendliest unless you had children or had been there a while. Plenty of choice on food but it does get a bit samey. The best night was the last one when they put on the Spanish dishes. Why oh why didn't they do that earlier in the week.
Cant fault the entertainment staff, particularly Lewis, who kept things going all the way to the last day. The hotel is so clean and always smells clean and fresh. The pool area is always tidy and spotless too.
For an all inclusive though, it was a little disappointing as drinks were only served in small plastic glasses (I understand why for the family audience but it is the first time I had encountered when at an all inclusive as normally get plastic pint glasses) through the day and food was only served at specific times. I thought the idea of an all inclusive was to get food when you wanted, rather than at the times the hotel specified.
Nearby there is a local car hire place (next to the supermarket), would get a car from there as 20% cheaper than holiday company. Easy to book and drive round the Island. Better value for money than some of the excursion as you really did get to see the island.
The hotel is having a refurbishment over the winter months, I can imagine that this hotel will be stunning next season with its new look.More
Good all round
We landed and we're swiftly moved on to our transfer coach and rep. Arrived at Hotel where all staff were helpful and polite. Room is basic but comfortable for any size of family up to 4. The all inclusive food is good with plenty of vegetarian options available and the kids have their own self service bar with simple unfussy food to choose from such as roast dinner, chicken nuggets, fish fingers and chips. All inclusive drinks I opted for local Malibu with a raspberry slush lovely jubbly, but there are many more local drinks to choose from. There is a deep pool with a baby pool attached outside and the beach is literally a 5 second walk. The beach is clean with white sand and clear water. Lifeguards are at hand to observe the tides and flags are arrected and signs displayed to indicate a safe water environment. Car hire readily available and cheap from reps or the local supermarket. Supermarket and local shops are a 5 second walk too. I would not recommend this hotel for young couples who want to party as it is very quiet and there is very little bars around. We are thinking of bringing our son with us next time as the entertainment was brilliant for kids and adults activities were also available throughout the day and night. More
what a week
From the off it was brilliant. Check in was so friendly and quick , less than 5 mins . I had e mailed the hotel 2 weeks before we went for a pool and sea view and was sorted upon arrival. Room is very basic and quite small but was good enough for the 3 of us . The views from the balcony was amazing every morning and the sunset in the evening was spectacular. The food was really good and plenty to choose from as we went from the 8th to the 15th October. The place inside and out was spotless. Now the entertainment team . Well what can I say . Quite remarkable . The 3 who were amazing are kung fu kate , shutup shaneese and our favourite was loopy lou . An absolute pleasure to meet such a great team . My son who is 7 loved them and as it was near the end of season it was quite so felt close to the guests and ents team. Adult entertainment was also really good .the beach is amazing and no exaggeration its 20 seconds walk to the beach. Would highly recommend this hotel for couples or families with children under 10 . Would go back tomorrow if I could .
Room tip . In front of hotel quite high up . We had room 407 which was really amazing views More

We stayed here between the 17th September and the 1st October, we had a great holiday, We took two teenagers aged 18 and 19, who both had a great time too. Although this place is geared up for children we found plenty to do, although I wouldn't recommend it for young adults looking for a rave because that isn't what you'll get. The entertainment team, Lewis. Shaneece and Kate excelled at what they did, although the whole team including the hotel staff, bar, restaurant, cleaners, lifeguard and reception staff were great too. The food was excellent and plenty to choose from, rooms cleaned every day, the whole hotel was spotless. The beach was lovely and clean and the sea was so warm, although there was a small problem with jelly fish on a couple of occasions but we were alerted to this by the beach life guard. The location is right on the beach too, this was an added bonus as we could see if was a green, yellow or red flag day for the sea, overall this was a great relaxing holiday but if you want child free don't go, choose an adults only resortMore

We returned for our second holiday here in September and enjoyed it just as much as last year. The hotel staff and Thomson staff are friendly and welcoming. You can do as little or as much as you want and we are in our seventies but enjoyed watching all the activities. There is a really family atmosphere but because the hotel is so large you can be quiet or in the thick of things as you fancy. The breakfast buffet is one of the best we have seen , the lunch and dinner buffets have plenty of choice and have something for everyone. Again the dining room is so large that we never had to wait for a table. The snacks can be a bit bland but are always fresh and you can help yourself to ice cream from 11.00 am to 6.00pm . A good choice of drinks are available from 10.30am to 11.00 pm with waiter service for branded drinks. All in all we had a great holiday and hope to return next year.More
