          Hi there, it is mentioned in a review that: "The meal plan is so mean that one has to buy drinks including drinking water during mealtimes. I found it annoying to have to pay for basic drinks like juice or water during meals." I just want to know, are people still expected to pay for basic drinks like juice or water during meals even if they have a full board?! Thanks.

          May I congratulate you on your response to "Mrs" review, which I found very rude, if she wanted to bring her own drinks in she should have stayed self catering and not a hotel. There is not a hotel on this planet which would allow you to consume your own alcohol, I think you showed great patience, I would have sent her packing.
