African Safari Club changing Bookings to Dolphin.

I am visiting Shanzu for the 2nd time on 13th July for 2 wks with my 20 year old son. We were booked into Paradise Beach on B&B ,but I have just been informed that it is closed for routine maintenance those weeks & I have been changed to the Dolphin instead.

My friends in Shanzu tell me the Paradise has been closed for months now, so the Dolphin is the next alternative. I know the Dolphin is a better hotel,so I have won a watch for the price we paid. However, being Scottish I am looking to get something out of them for my "inconvenience". I suggested making us half board or upgrading our flights.

1stly, Is anyone else going at same time as me, & 2ndly any1 got any advice as to if you think I have any chance of getting anything from them for changing my hotel.

Hell will definately freeze over before you get the drippings off ASC`s noses,

Just be thankful you have been shifted to the Dolphin ....absoloute dump is the paradise,

You might even go into the Flamingo as I see it was open today.

Hi, I think it is worth a try. Why not? I always barter with them when booking a flight. For example last holiday they were adverising flights for £399 and I got them down to £249, and I know someone who booked a flight last year after being told it was not going to be reduced and it was, so he got the upgrade free. Hope this helps Pamela
