review 14 Aug 2016

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

White water rafting all together. This narrowly beat canyoning including a 20 metre abseil.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This was a brilliant holiday for us and our three daughters aged 13, 10 and 10. The level of challenge and adventure was just right for us. (We are all fit and healthy but not massively sporty. ) Check that your week does not coincide with the local fiesta which is very loud.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Other than the fiesta we cannot fault it. The activities were varied and exciting, the guide was expert, entertaining and extremely reassuring, there were lots of good places to eat near the hotel.

review 17 Aug 2008

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Every activity was at least as good as expected if not better. Great group of people, fantastic fun all brilliantly orchestrated by our devoted, excellent guide, Dejan.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Don't have high expectations of the hotel location! We had a wonderful holiday but were initially disappointed by the very central location of the hotel within the resort of Sort, since we imagined a rural, romantic place. Silly fools we are! The pool however is wonderful, clean and a great size and so was the lawn around it. Very welcome to relax in and around after a busy day and a meeting place for all the teenagers. Nice little shops and eating places within walking distance and not many foreign speaking tourists! Add some time to see some more of the Pyrenees or have a few days sightseeing in Barcelona.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

As far as we could see, very clearly yes to all the above.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Had a fantastic, very memorable time and are left with plenty of bruises to prove that we had a full-on activity holiday!!!! Staff at the tour operator were very friendly and helpful in ever aspect. Thank you very much.
