          As you may be aware Sandra and rob will not be returning to the Goldi Sands,Thomson holidays misled many customers into believing the Goldi sands by virtue of its holiday influence graded the goldi sands at standards not acceptable, as result legal action is proceeding,in the meantime as much as I can complement your hotel following private negotiation to forfeit an extra payment to secure a room of our standards it is never the less unfortunate the holiday business needs to establish customers needs.
