When we arrived, the first thing we were told, was:
"I see you booked a room with ocean view, sadly, you booked to late (we did that 2 months in advance!), these groups have booked over a year ago, so they got those rooms"
These only leaves two questions:
1.) Why do they NOT inform us during those 2 months, that they can NOT fulfill a valid booking?
2.) If they already knew that even a year ago, why do they offer ocean view rooms during the online booking process?
This only leaves ONE single conclusion:
They do NOT care about the customer, they ONLY care about the money coming in...
Never again! Folks, if you can, avoid this place!
We had the wallpaper coming off the walls in our room (and, yes, we still had a better room, 1st floor, golf course view!), dirty towels, shabby bedclothes, an ironing station in the room, that once had burnt through...
This is not four stars, even for Irish standard this is less than 2 stars...
