Thomson is using Google+ and Twitter to modernise the holiday experience for its customers. (Oh dear - Ed.)
The holiday company will welcome holidaymakers pre-departure using live Google+ hangouts and invite customers to use a dedicated Twitter
hashtag in-resort to communicate with their iAdvisor.
Thomson is trialling this new way of welcoming customers after research found that holidaymakers are using social networks ahead of their trip to meet other travellers and share information. (What's new there? - Ed.)
Customers travelling to Thomson’s exclusive Sensatori Resort Crete in August will have the opportunity to participate in a Holiday Hangout before they depart. The live video hangouts will give customers the chance to ask their resort based iAdvisor questions about the hotel and local area and get an update on the weather.
They will also be able to tweet questions to their iAdvisor from their sun lounger. All Thomson iAdvisors will be equipped with a tablet to ensure they’re easy to reach wherever they are in the resort. (Unless it's turned off - Ed.)
La Tulipe Restaurant is renowned among residents and visitors of Mallorca. Established 18 years ago in the village of S'Arraco by Brigitte Zwygart and René Bernasconi, the restaurant has now moved to Camp de Mar.
The new venue at boasts a charming and comfortable open-air terrace to maximise the enjoyment of the balmy summer evenings in the resort.
Regular Camp de Mar visitors will occasionally see Claudia Schiffer in the kiosk when she visits her parents villa, but did you know Mallorca is also a regular destination for other celebrities. Michael Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, the Spanish royal family, Bob Geldof, Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Jasper Carrott - but not in Camp de Mar as the reps at the Playa hotel will tell you.

With the warmer weather now here, al fresco dining becomes the norm rather than the exception and the Flor de Sal restaurant (Vía de Francisca Capllonch Plomer) in Camp de Mar is now having barbecues every Saturday lunchtime from 1 to 3.30pm.
There are two set menus to choose from priced at 8 or 12€. Advance bookings are recommended.
The main through road of Camp de Mar - Avenida Francisca Capllonch Plomer - has been dug up for road works again by the municipal council. With a section of the Avenida cut off, traffic has been forced to use complicated diversions. This has lead to short-cuts by taxis driving the wrong way down one-way streets in order to gain access to the centre of Camp de Mar.
The council's plan to make further improvements to the road shows no sign of progress in over two months, as witnessed by adjacent piles of sand and gravel that appear to be unused.
The Urban development department of Andratx town council said yesterday that it had “no knowledge” of the situation.
