    Had a check on prices from here with Thomson (www.thomson.co.uk). Looking to be about £300 more for a 2-week stay than TTR, but that's not a major difference if better amenities etc. I like the look of the pools, and the bars look way better than nice shoes and the sports bar. The booking I tried said "free wi-fi coming May 2014". That'd be a big plus for me if it is true.

    And for the extra money you will be flying on the new Dreamliner and not Thomas Cook crappy flights? That's worth some ££ alone.

    That’s what I meant, the extra cost of the package is not necessarily due to the cost of the hotel, flights with Thomson are more expensive because you fly on the Dreamliner.

    I think more and more people are getting Internet savy, and the resorts don't have to chop there prices as much

    Do they offer any kind of guarantee that they will land you at the right airport? :icon_lol:

    So, to get a tour of GOV, we have to get ourselves there, eh?

    Well, that would be perfect, and I'd be asking the two of you to walk me there, but I fear you're not gonna be in Cancun next week? :sad icon

    Steve- May have missed in all the posts, but does GOV plan any theme nights or can we start a theme night thread for CCC people in the GOV section? Obviously its one of the parts of TTR that works to make the onsite parties fun.

    Quote from Valentina - Concepts Manager

    "We havent finished the activities and themes program yet. However suggestions are welcome... What we know so far is that to start we would like to have just three themes because one night the party will be at the Captain Hook and two more outside (night club to be confirmed) These two activities are included in the room rate, so no extra
    Regarding theme nights, probably one will be lingerie and masks... For the rest you can take the advantage and make your suggestions!
    The Coyote Bar will be open til 03 am starting December 23rd"

    Having a mask night as a regular theme seems kinda cool actually...

    I´m glad you like it... We´d probably have the masks available upon arrival on each room, as a courtesy from the resort. I´ll keep you posted.

    We would have taken you with us had we known you wanted to go. 1 US dollar bus ride. The place really looks pretty nice.
