We came back today from the worst holiday we have ever had. We feel like we have been conned into parting with our hard-earned money.
We thought we were going to a 4* all-inclusive hotel, what a shock to arrive at 1AM in the morning to be told we couldn't get a drink 'till 8AM! If we wanted water, we would have to pay well over the odds for it.
Breakfast next day consisted of stale bread, SPAM, rubbery cheese and there was a big bowl of jam which was all sticky round the outside of the bowl. We had to wait for a kettle to boil which served at least 40 others before we could have a cup of tea. The handle on the kettle was too hot where it had been boiled so many times - you had to hold a serviette so you could pick it up! We were then bought out 2 fried eggs on a saucer, WHICH WE WERE LATER INFORMED BY THE REP THAT WE WERE VERY LUCKY TO GET THEM, AS THEY WERN''T INCLUDED IN OUR BREAKFAST!
The hotel staff were very hostile towards you and they seemed to run out of all the bare essentials. i.e. red wine, lemonade, vodka, and coke.
We went the last week of our holiday without ice-cream, as we were informed it was now finished.
They only ever brought out enough food for 3 or 4 people at a time, and it was ALWAYS COLD and UNEDIBLE.
We were told that you could get snacks around the pool bar - no such thing!
You can't get any drinks from 10AM to 12:30PM or from 10PM to 8AM in the morning - you can't even buy water!
Most of the people we knew in the hotel had to go out and buy themselves a kettle and teabags so they could have a cup of tea.
The hotel is situated halfway up the mountain which is 3KM away from the nearest town, Benietis. We were told there was a shuttle bus, that left at 10AM in the morning and came back at 1:30 PM. It was 1.2 KM to the bottom of a very very steep hill, which was christened in our hotel, 'Heart attack Hill'!
I could put plenty more bad details - but the list is just endless.
This was supposed to be rated as a 4* but in our opinion wasn't even a 2! It was a thouroughly unenjoyable experience...
DO NOT GO THERE AND WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
