6/10 Good

30 July 2008

Fine for the price

I had no problem with getting what I had ordered. I thought the locationw was very nice. The buffet was very limited - odd to have no fruit at breakfast, but when travelling in a different country, I believe you suspend somewhat your expectations. I thought the pool was nice, but it would have been nicer if it had been just a tad cooler - maybe hard to do with high temperatures! The room was fine, clean and basically as advertised. Would be nice to remove carpeting in all hotels of this nature and go with tiles, so much cooler! I thought you basically got what you paid for and was not disappointed in what I received for the money spent.

Worst food

The hotel was clean but on arrival we produced our accomadation voucher which showed we were booked as AI but they claimed we had booked half board only so we couldn't sit for lunch until this was cleared up then funny enough as soon as lunch was over they cleared it up after my protesting but to be honest im glad we missed lunch as the food was compleatly dire. We stayed for 4 nights and only ate twice, i cant beleive we spent all that money for AI and we couldn't eat the food, other guests were complaining and were getting nothing they requested for food, it was potatoes and what looked like goolash for lunch and dinner every day, there was nothing for vegatarians unless you liked potatoes and cucomber, the AI drink service was a joke also, every AI hotel i have stayed at has an drink service up to 11pm this one was 10pm you couldn't have coffie or tea during the day unless it was a meal time or coffie break from 5 to 6 the beer was cloudy and had a funny taste when i complained i was told this was normal and the beer should be like this, we went AI as so we wouldn't spend as much at the resort but turned out we had to eat and drink out every day which cost us as well as already paying for the food and drink at this hotel which we could not ingest.
