where do i start!!!!!!!!!!
first of all we got to the hotel on the thursday morning and was given our key and shown the way to our room,staff were very pleasant, then it all started to change.
we opened the door and were surprised to see that the room didnt seem like we had seen on the internet,the room was long and narrow dull and dingy.we opened the doors onto the balcony and there in front of us were a plastic table and chair that was half painted and half not in a sandy colour.it looked scruffy and dirty.we had been up since the previous morning and just sat down on the balcony to relax for 5minutes before unpacking our cases.no sooner had my wife sat down she gave out a little yelp and stood up and looked at the chair she was sat on when she realised that it was cracked and had nipped her skin.
we then went back into the room to unpack.there was plenty of space to hang your clothes but no shelve space to put any other clothing,we ended up using the spare bed for two weeks to put the rest of the clothes and towels on.we looked around for the kettle to make a hot drink after our travels and found that the cupboard under the sink held the kettle and toaster and was actually plugged in there aswell.so you boiled the kettle and cooked toast in the cupboard.(not quite what im used to but hey).
three of the lights were out and when you turned the tap on in the sink the whole tapped turned so you had to use both hands to turn it on with one hand stopping it from twisting.For the first time in 10 years we went self catering instead of the normal all inclusive so i thought that this might be the norm for self catering in a supposedly 4* hotel.
In the bathroom there were what we thought were black marks on the ceiling but turned out to be holes all over the bath area.all this we noticed within the first 5 minutes of being in our room.not the best of starts.
we decided to wait till the following day to see our rep about the room before saying anything to the hotel direct.when that time came and we told him we were in block 500 he said thet it was a problem block and he had received previous complaints.
we were offered another room but that was above the indian restaraunt and the smell was a little bit overpowering so we just grinned and beared our room.
we thought it was a bit of a con that we had to pay for air conditioning and a non refunded deposit for our safe key.
the pool area was very compact to say the least and you felt that you were in a tin of sardines.well enough about the the hotel because i could go on all day about it.
TO SAY THE LEAST WE WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN!!!!!!!!(but thats not to say that the rest of argassi was not enjoyable)
