          Hi all, We have just been notified by Thomson of the building works that have commenced next door and how this "won't effect our stay". Has anyone visited in the last few weeks that can advise on their experiences? We're very disappointed that Thomson have only just advised of this as it appears from other reviews that they were aware of the works at the time we booked our honeymoon! We are staying from 10th July and having only been told 2 weeks before departure, myself and my partner are now dreading the potential of a ruined honeymoon :( I'd really appreciate anyone's views and experiences before we go into Thomson at the weekend. Thanks in advanced Nicola

          Hi. I'm about to book the Merlin for my annual hols in Nov. Can anyone advise me re the bathrooms. I see that the Deluxe rooms have a pretty much open plan thing going on. I gather from some photos that there are large screens (eg. sliding doors) which pull around the bathroom area but it seems as though they only hide one area of the bathroom at a time (if that makes sense) leaving another part in full view. Would be very grateful for any comments.
