The first thing we noticed when we first arrived at the hotel was how filthy the floor was. The carpeted stairs were covered in fluff and dirt and leaves...six days later when we left they were just the same, actually dirtier.
The coffee cups in our room had not been washed when we went to use them for the first time.
The pool has no shade except for the toddlers end, and the sun loungers were so putrid I didn't bother laying on them.
The curtains don't meet in the middle or even at either end of the dodgy pole their hanging from. The floodlights of the big garage are on all night and shine in the room so we had to sleep with pillows over our heads.
The bus to the centre of town is nice and handy, however the drivers were mostly cranky and not helpful.
