“Awful experience on leaving the hotel.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2010

Be careful when you check out, we decided not to pay the 70 Euro surcharge for cleaning as our party consisted of my elderly mother and older sister (mid-fifties) who were happy to clean the apartment on the final day. On that day the owner visited at 09:30 and cleared the apartment as suitable for vacating, he also kindly allowed us to leave our luggage on site until lunchtime when we had a taxi booked for our trip to the airport. On returning to the apartment and with a taxi waiting we were set upon by the owners wife who claimed the apartment had been left 'filthy' and it had taken 5 people 2 hours to clean it to an acceptable standard. This came as quiet a shock as the apartment was cleared at 09:30 and had been cleaned top to bottom by two people in the morning. Two respectable people with high standards of cleanliness. They could offer no proof of their claim as they had cleaned the apartment again. The approach of the owners wife was abusive, aggresive and verging on threatening. At one point we were referred to as 'filthy English' (being Welsh this displayed not only a lack of manners but also ignorance). We were verbally berated and the 75 Euros was demanded of us. As our taxi and flight were waiting my elderly mother in her mid seventies was pressed for the money (I only arrived at the tail end of the scene), she handed over her credit card and told the owner her conscience was clear, take the money if he wished. He clearly has some regret at this point as he decided to take half the amount. This behaviour was at best merely dishonest and at worst calculated and deceptive. Until our return to the apartments we had actually had a discussion as to whether we should return the following year, we shall not. If you go, pay the cleaning surcharge or beware.
