when i first arrived, at around 2.20pm (check-in was after 2pm), the manager (Deb) was on the phone arguing. I just waited my turn, and when she did acknowledge me she knew who I was but wasn't too happy I was there as my room wasn't ready. My response? 'Oh'. That was pretty much it, she then accused me of having an attitude and asked if 'anything had ever gone wrong for you'.
Truth was I needed a piss and so did my 9-year-old daughter, but that was it. After her dealing of me I wasn't going to ask any questions because this would probably annoy her more. I decided I'd stay out of her way, but if I did have a run-in again, we'd just leave.
A little while later when we returned from the beach, she was nice as pie, and great with the kids, who she recommended DVDs to.
Also we had an extra bed as I requested, which was not charged, which I am massively grateful for.
She showed us an award (which I believe was from this website) which she was immensely proud of. The kids were really happy, she was great with them. I think she was making up for the earlier incident, which is fine.
The room, the place, the location, the pool were all superb, if it wasn't for my introduction to Deb I would be going back again and again. I will recommend this place, but it's not for me.
Oh, one last thing: your English accent was awful. There's over 100 accents in the British Isles and yours came over as Pakistani.
