following text was used to describe booking for ' Queen Room ' for 2 guests - " Room facilities:- telephone, a/c , desk , toilet , bathroom , heating , wardrobe/closet - this room features a work desk, telephone and antique furniture ". So , in reality it could/should read or be descibed as the following - the telephone next to the bed wasn't plugged in, didn't work as i tried or thought I could call reception , ended up going on foot, later to be told the telephone was a 'fake' sort of antique. I had great difficulty in trying to fathom out the remote control to work the tv via sat receiver - no instructions - that was the reason why I wanted to call down to reception! A young man at reception told me that the tv/sat receiver wasn't properly set up / installed yet and would take another couple of weeks. The wardrobe/closet was maybe old but not antique, you first had to move the bed to the side before you could open the door fully. The wardrobe wasn't deep enough to take a normal sized hanger and the small safe that was fixed in the upper left corner of the wardrobe couldn't be opened because there were no instructions again and reception couldn't help me out with that either. Maybe the bed was antique cos it certainly felt very old and used/worn out, was probably the original mattress, the bed frame was so unstable I thought we were in a waterbed. We were unlucky and were given a room right next to and on the same level as to the dual carriageway where the traffic drove by - the Harley that drove past felt like it was going through our bedroom. There was no thermostat for the a/c and the ceiling ventilator was also not in use same as the phone...another antique? I can't remember seeing a 'work desk' in our room and the antique furniture could have been seen down stairs in a sort of lounge/sitting room which nobody used while we were there. Breakfast ( was a joke ) was included in room rate - was a sort of ' Continental Breakfast ' but I don't know which continent! Only one sort of bread was available for toasting, one choice of coffee, bottled orange juice and bottled water. 2 - 3 types of jelly , one sort of fresh fruit in a cup. Kitchen staff spoke Spanish - very little or no English.
