This was our 5th visit. At reception our instructions re eating/entertaining were scribbled onto our room card. No help with luggage. There appeared to be less staff about and less service around the pool and at breakfast. Our room(823)was kept well cleaned, however , it was sad to see such careless maintenance in the bathroom.

They resolved the problem (thanks to one excellent staff member), but I had to call about it every day - very annoying if... More
