One is a bit disappointed when you book your hotel room on half board basis and then find that that includes ONLY the food! You pay over the odds for drinking water at mealtimes. It makes one's mouth go dry to think the price they charge for it is FOUR times what you can get bottled water for in town.
Wifi surprisingly is not free in a hotel of this size.
The air conditioner in our room generated noise and heat. Complained and they promptly sent a technician. But he could not fix it! So we suffered. It was 45 Celsius outside by day.
The sink was blocked. Again a man came quickly but while he unblocked the sink the basin was left dirty!
And if that was not enough some of our group suffered from food poisoning. So be warned. Best to stay clear of the green salads! Perhaps that applies to all traveller's hotels in this part of the world!
