Gerpongo
Sono interessato a soggiornare al (Veraclub) Crystal Bay Resort, ma dopo aver letto attentamente le review (soprattutto quelle negative), prima di acquistare il pacchetto vacanze in agenzia, avrei delle domande: 1. Tutte le camere hanno in dotazione un minifrigo (nel senso di "elettrodomestico") a completa disposizione degli ospiti. E' vero? 2. Non accettano pagamenti a mezzo cellulare (servizio m-pesa di safaricom). E' vero? 3. Praticano sovrapprezzi in caso di pagamento con carta di credito. E' vero? 4. In cosa consiste la prima colazione? E' vero che la colazione salata è composta solo da uova? 5. Le bevande in bottiglia non sono comprese nel servizio all inclusive. E' vero? Ci sono dei boccioni a disposizione dei clienti? 6. I pasti, come normalmente accade in tutti i villaggi turistici, sono self service o è previsto un servizio al tavolo? 7. Il ristorante Tamu ha un menù a la carte? E' anche pizzeria? Chi mi sa dire qualcosa del Bahari? 8. Il resort si trova esattamente nel centro di Watamu, come esplicitamente indicato nelle mappe su internet, oppure risulta (leggermente) a nord del villaggio, fuori dal perimetro urbano, come risulta triangolando le foto del resort con le suddette mappe? 9. In caso sia lontano dal centro di Watamu, quanto tempo si impiega ad andarci a piedi? grazie mille a chi saprà rispondere :-) G.
