          After booking a couple of months ago have now been informed the hotel is splitting very concerned as the one we are going to stay in looks rubbish and not very good reviews. The original booking states numerous pools, restaurants and bars and it now looks like (1 small pool, one bar and a restaurant that isn't overly great. Any reassurance would be very gratefully received. HELPPPP!!
