“What a BAD experience”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

When you are looking forward to enjoying your well deserved holidays after a year of intense and demanding work , you have just one wish : to disconnect completely from the stress and close your eyes and start your relax vacations. Well, that was not the case at Girasole village. Although the place , at first appearance , looks nice, as you spend some days it starts to reveal its secret... 1. Have you ever slept in a place where you have the sensation to be in South Sudan? What I mean, as frequent traveller, I did not expect that this village was full of Mosquitos. I think I have hardly seen a place where you can't to move around without all sort of creams and spry that should avoid mosquitos bites. But event though, you cannot escape!!!
2. Finally, let's enjoy the Italian cuisine. Good food but the service was just " indecent". The responsabile of the restaurant, a gentleman named Alexander ( I believe from Russia or Ukraine) was everything except gentleman. He treated the clients with indifferente and arrogance. I have asked a glass of milk for my little one, and his answer was: the bar is there, ask to them!! With the price that you pay for an infrastructure that put up its 4 stars, sorry but we expect a different answer.
3. It is time to go to the beach... Have you got comfortable shoes?? Not really I am on flip flap ... We'll get ready to walk because is not around the corner.
4. Our kids would like to enjoy the minclub and leave few instant of relax to the Parents. No way!! My kids tried to escape....
Apologies for my long Reflexion, it s time now to make your choice. Have a nice and relaxing holidays!!!
