I am a travel agent from kent, Myself and 3 friends stayed here for what should have been a week, but cut our holiday short due to foul mouthed russians and staff that could not speak english to sort things out!! We had to be moved to a different hotel as we where scared due to being attacked verbilly by russians who just DID OT LIKE ENGLISH!
The hotel was very very basic...I suppose you do get what you pay for BUT if you are russian you geteverything included (they wear red armbands) if you are european you have to pay for drinks (blue armband)
Our bedding was never changed unless we dragged the (curtain sheets) bedding off ourselves...toilet tissue was never replaced which was hell seeing as there was 4 girls sharing...I caught verrucca's from the pool area...never any hot water, drinks vile and watered down...the only slightly good thing was the food, but even then if you wanted lets say your egg well done at breakfast they would grunt at you and say NO!!!
To top this all off our ground agents who where meant to be on help to us 'Peninsula' where never there to help, I had made phone calls to them at least twice a day to get us out of the hotel, on the day before we where leaving they finally sent someone to us, but she was very abrubt and could not be botherd with helping us. We did eventially get mover to Sea Life Side which was only a 2* BUT was soooooo much better than the Mari and the staff could nothave been more friendly to us brits!!lol
On the journey home our tranfer driver fell asleep whilst driving on the freeway....we where all screaming and the tour rep who sat up front with him told us to shut up..... DO NOT deal with these people they are animals not humans, i have never been so scared for my life.
It was typically a holiday from HELL!! If you are russian or german you will have a great time.....
If you are english however you will feel very singled out.
I have now on my return made an official complaint to the tour operator WINGS ABROAD and am waiting for a resonse...they NEED to take this hotel off sale IMMEDIATELY
Would not send my WORST enemy here!!!
