Stayed at the Hotel Kristal in July 2013...now where do i begin!! Reception area looked promising on arrival - very cheerful reception staff (although the smiles could have been knowing smirks to be honest) Corridors leading to rooms were very poorly lit which probably softened the blow a bit. Rooms were basic and as it was dark and early hours of the morning things didnt look to terrible, but as daylight set in the reality really hit home!! Rooms so dark that it was impossible to tell if it was day or night without hanging out of a window and peering up into the sky. Food was indescribably bad, both breakfast and evening meal. Even the staff didnt know what was being served and looked very embarrassed. No one returned for a second bash at the buffet! Beds were of the camp bed variety and my dad went through two of them in the first three days. More pubic hair than you ever seen or shed in your entire life was growing out of the plug hole in the bath. The hand basin had a crack all the way through and and i wont even mention the toilet. My parents thought they had a result they managed to get a room with a balcony!!!!! This had an array of old cigarette butts and every bit of dust that had ever settled out there. The bar and 'SUN TERRACE' was a joke....never managed to get a drink as no one appeared to be working. Sun terrace consists of 6 filthy, broken loungers for your use (not in a million years) Entrance to the hotel was down a urine drenched alley full of dogs mess and home to a persistent restaurant owner that seemed intent on almost dragging us into his seedy restaurant every time we walked by.....This made the cost of the holiday treble as the food was inedible , we never saw a bar tender and couldn't wait to get out of the place at every given opportunity. We are not fussy people and we will always make the best of a bad situation, but let this be a warning to you....there are better places to stay!!!!
