It was well understood that I was forbidden to book any hotels for holidays after putting my wife into 1 star B and B about 5 years ago. But I thought I was on from ground after reading the Tripadvisor reviews on Capo d'Africa. But I'm in trouble again. We've been here for a night and a bit in a 4 night stay. We'll make the most of it, but we can see already bat our dream stay will be a disappointment because of the hotel. Why ? The steps up to the entrance can be a bit daunting on arrival, though there is an ground floor exit at a side entrance. Our superior room was upgraded automatically to a deluxe double room, but it is only a standard quality room. Small for two adults, wit the " smallest bath I've ever seen." ( wife). The much lauded breakfast was ok- fresh, tasty, not particularly well stocked ( I expounded the virtue of the coffee to my wife which produced a withering grimace). Room service on the first night produced a pretty poor meal- bland and dry. But the big No-No was the veto on any irons being used in the rooms- for health and safety reasons. This, of course, is ridiculous, with the vast number f other electronic items in use I-pad, kettle etc). How do I iron m clothes, my wife asked me ? Well, there is a laundry service, which of course costs money. So, one day in, I hold my hand up. The service is good, the location very good, it's a fair place to stay ( though no swimming pool but a fitness room) for £200/ night, below the standard of a good 4 star, and certainly not the base for a dream holiday. I don't think I am being sad- just honest ( and I generally over rate on my reviews).
