A very disappointing week. The hotel was full of Middle Eastern families whose children were out of control. Staff generally ignored this and never asked tthe parents to control their children. They wer racing up and down in the scenic lifts, shouting, riding around on scooters & running around the dining room in the evenings and poking their fingers in the food. One was taking soil from the potted plants and throwing it through the door, then poking her fingers in the buffet.
The evening hot meal was usually a stew which seemed to be made from the leftover lunchtime menu. There were also large student groups which I think is inappropriate for a five star hotel environment.
The hotel itself, rooms, location etc were idyllic but nothing was done to make the stay comfortable for the majority of guests who were affected by the antisocial behaviour of a minority. Also the bar prices were extortionate, €3.50 for a small glass of beer.
