Only one place to start here, a 7pm all inclusive limit!
After arriving at Bolero Park, myself and my partner were quite hungry as we had left the house at 8am and the time now was 6pm. We asked the receptionist guy where we would find the restaurant, and he informed us it was "upstairs". However, when we went "upstairs", we were at a pool bar with a menu being thrust in front of us which had prices on! After telling the barman (who was intoxicated to say the least!), he told us that yes we were all inclusive and to choose our food. So after a 2o minute wait for the food, we now ate what can only be described as pretty cold bolognaise. All of a sudden, the barman starting pulling down the shutters. I asked where we now went to continue our evening, to which his reply was that the all inclusive in this hotel finished at 7pm.
After looking at our booking, we realised that our hotel provider (Broadway Travel) had mis-sold us the hotel, stating that the all inclusive finished at midnight. I went to reception to confront the same bloke who checked us in, his reply was that he couldnt do anything and that we needed to speak to our provider. So now, after booking all inclusive, we now found ourselves in Lloret centre, trying to dodge the cocaine pushers, and spending money that we feel that we shouldnt have had to be spending.
In the morning, we went down for breakfast (to the pool bar) and ordered 2 cheese and ham toasties. Im no rocket scientist, but im sure that 2 toasties dont take over an hour to cook!! When they finally arrived, from outer space, another two arrived (thanks Gary!). This was the final straw for us, so we contacted our provider and asked for a hotel move as this one was mis-sold, and they agreed straight away.
It did take just over 1 and a half hours for them to find alternative accomodation, and in this time we got talking to a family that were in the same boat as us. In the time that we waited for confirmation of our new hotel, the other family had ordered breakfast, and when we did leave for the other hotel, they were still waiting on their food all that time later!! Its not the chefs fault though, as she is on her own on a 30cmx30cm griddle!
I have to say that never have i been to an all inclusive where the barman just seems to constantly drink alcohol! He is obviously dependant on it, i witnessed nmerous occasions where he would pour maybe half a cup and just down it sneakily before continuing his "work".
I do want to add that Regents pub downstairs is run by a friendly couple Gary & Alexis. I did feel sorry for them both as clearly they had been hearing too many complaints about the all inclusive situation, however nothing was too much trouble for them. Gary also doubled up in the "upstairs restaurant" to help out of a morning, they would be screwed if he wasnt there! I do hope that both Gary and Alexis do well with the pub this season.
