    Allocation on Arrival holidays can sometimes go wrong. It all depends what company you've booked with! Have they given you a resort or anything?

    What company is it with? I'm 'in the industry' so I'll see if I can dig up some policies of the company.

    I haven't looked on the site you posted, but sounds good to me! Who cares if you get shoved somewhere crappy? You'll still have a good time, plus how much time do you spend in a hotel room anyway? Seriously for £59 including flights etc, I'd probably put up with anything, plus as people have said, you could get lucky and end up with somewhere really plush. It sounds really exciting not knowing where you're gonna end up! Be positive about it, you havent got much to lose either way.

    :( Maybe i am just being negative! it just you see programs like holidays from hell and cant help but wonder! I've heard they'll give me a minimum accomodation thing when i ring to book so i can only have the type they say, or better they aint allowed to give you worse! :D

    When I click on the more info bits beside the holidays on that icelolly site, the pages all come up blank. Is it just me or do they do that for everyone?

    No. Works fine for me.

    As for the company, they're a broker. Its worth checking which company they'll be using or whether they're sourcing individual bookings.

    As long as you are in good distance of the main resorts etc. Who cares about the accomodation, aslong as you have some kind of bed and hot running water. Thats all the time you have to spend there!
