lol, OP why not try a nice trip to creece
cold deal by the way- holidays are probably the last remaining product where the high street beats the internet for price everytime.

really, you'd say it was cheaper getting a holiday from a travel agent?

I've always found teletext cheaper, granted it's always a last minute thing

I've only ever been on two holidays, so any advice would be appreciated on tips and tricks and things!

yeah mate, the agents will reduce holidays below cost price in some cases- that never happens online.
Find a cheap hol online, print details and take it to 2 or 3 agents and tell them to beat it (and each other).
Wont work with last min hols probably

Can taller families go as well?

Stayed in this hotel a few years ago and would recommend it. Nice views over the resort/bay and the rooms were clean.
It's also in a good location for the commercial centre but is up a LOT of steps, however the Taxis are cheap and plentiful.

Seems there is a lot that people do not know about the travel industry.

The teletext people themselves are "agents", usually.

A travel agent cannot reduce the cost of a holiday, except by the amount of their commission, the tour operator controls the prices ( in this case the tour operator and the agent appear to be Thomson ) and it is up to a good travel agent to find the low prices.

The deal posted seems a very good deal, why it is voted cold is beyond me.

What i do every year is decide where i want to go at a particular time of year and book the flights then 2 or 3 days before i am due to fly out i go on to either the Monarch villa website or James villa website as they drop their prices to rock bottom on property's that have not rented out for that week.

Last year i got a 4 bed farmhouse with private pool in Menorca for £150 and i paid £200 for flights so £350 for the 2 of us.

I have done this 6 times in the last 2 years and have not failed to find a property. Holiday-Rentals is another good website.

i also think this is a fab price, the only conclusion i can come to is that the people on here cant afford it therefor are voting it cold

No, you have it wrong.

The people on here are ingrates and vote things cold if it does not directly benefit them. "New Porsche for £1.50?" "Voted cold because I cannot drive".

I seen too many good deals turned cold, on here, to ever consider putting any more deals up that I may stumble across.

lol, i know you are right

We stayed sat this hotel about 3 years ago,( cala dor hotel in puerto rico) great entertainer for the kids, but otherwise wouldn't bother going back. Full of cockroaches basic appartments and no air conditioning, we had to leave balcony door open and listen to the music until 5am coming from the centre down the road. Thomson advertise this hotel as 3T's, but the hotel itself rates it as a 1star which is more fitting.
You can get this hotel for around £200 for the week.

i was there in may last year and it was nowhere as bad as you describe. it was basic but pretty clean, i never once saw any cochroaches. we slept with our balcony door closed at night as we have a 6 year old son and couldnt really hear music coming from the centre as the centre is around 500m away, you also say you can get this hotel for £200 per week, is that for 3 people including flights? if it is excluding flights if you add on another week and then flights would you not say £681 is a fair if not good price??

I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone, but thats due to our expeirience there. So I dont think this is a good price, I think its a price that reflects what you pay for. If you go with no expectations at all you might just think its a deal. The hotel can be booked with Thomson for £200 room only for a family of 4.
