It was pointed out to me at the time that this is a regular problem on Vilamendhoo and that over booking is common place, I have even seen a review where one couple had to spend the first couple of nights on another island, with this in mind please do not insult my intelligence with the above comment.
In your brochure it quotes “Take the Beach Villas, for starters. They're set in tropical gardens, so you get a real sense of privacy.” Now this is the real pearl and if necessary the one that I would refer to section 4 of the package holidays and package tours regulations. We were in a “BEACH VILLA” the real sense of privacy is none existent as people are walking up and down in front of room 111 morning noon and night, it is like a main road. There is NO SENSE OF PRIVACY at all in room 111 or any other room in that location of the island of Vilamendhoo.
I have read some reviews from trip advisor and whilst some give the resort a great review there are still a fair few that do not, mainly for the exact same reasons that I was not pleased so you can be as mindful as you like about your customer satisfaction surveys, I still require considerable compensation for the blatantly false advertised holiday location that Thomson holidays sent me and my wife on.
