I'll just keep it simple.
Bed: the floor was more comfortable.
Pillows: Straight out of a 1990's airliner
Shower: sudden loss of hot water...probably some odd plumbing issue
TV: It worked, but only after I had to re-wire the cable box back to the tv itself. Small thing, but a thing that should have been taken care of, I feel.
A/C: didn't work. It was one of those stand alone units in the room and the only button that worked on it was the on/off switch. Couldn't turn on the A/C so we were beholden to whatever the temperature was outside...provided we could get the fans to work. Speaking of fans
Ceiling fans: Since we had no a/c in the room, we opened up a window and thought we'd just let the fans stir in some sea air at night. Problem is they only work if the ceiling LIGHTS are turned on, leaving us with that A/C unit which would blow air alright, but nothing cool.
Yes, it was clean. Yes it has beach access. Yes it even has free wifi. Despite the fact that it was close to where we wanted to be and it was "a deal," I'll be shelling out the extra cash to stay elsewhere. Cheap, in this case, meant cheap.
I anticipate the manager of the Capri will add a note below regretting our poor stay, but it'll be too little too late. We're not coming back unless the hotel does a complete room overhaul.
