I ordered a pork chop in Casa Edu (opposite the police and fire station), knowing everything they serve is massive, thinking a chop is a chop, how big can it be?

What I got was an inch thick cross section of a pig. It had rib like bones down both edges and was as big as a large plate. Ate about a third of it and it gave me the worst indigestion I have ever had and I throw up the next day. Not food poisoning as I ate the rest of a a few days later, just too big for my stomach. Hard to get anything that isn't big enough to feed four people there. Even starters can be too big for a main.

I think it is just a company called Love Holidays that have been sending people to closed hotels.

We learned through it happening to us, that most, if not all travel insurance, will only cover someone to be treated in a private hospital IF IT IS MEDICALLY ADVISED IT IS UNSAFE TO MOVE THE PATIENT.  In our case having paid out nearly £500 Travel insurance for two of us for six months, when my husband fell and broke his hip he was initially ambulanced  to Hospiten Sur (Green Clinic).  After xray diagnosis, stabilising the patient (2 paracetamol) our private travel insurance paid for a private ambulance to take him up to Candelaria hospital (state) arriving 11.30pm. This after my arguing with the Rottweiler of a translator at Hospiten Sur and also on many expensive calls to emergency hotline of our insurance. Turns out they were right, there was a clause on page 34 of the small print that insurance would only cover us for treatment in private hospital if it was deemed unsafe for the patient to be moved. On return to UK and taking out insurance for our next holiday I spoke with all the well known reputable companies who each confirmed this as fact. So, donít assume when you have a travel insurance policy that you will be covered for treatment in a private hospital. READ THE SMALL PRINT and specifically ask if they will treat you privately or stabilise and move you to state hospital then you wonít get a nasty shock and a long drive to visit loved ones from west coast. Incidentally we had first class treatment in Candelaria under our EHIC card.

Interesting piece on page 120 of todays Mail on Sunday about Post Office Travel Insurance, apparently although the Post Office market these policies they are underwritten by two German firms.

I rest my case !!
