It was a fantastic holiday - anybody who says anything else must be used to holidaying with Mr Abranovich on one of his yachts.
One note of caution is, when taking a taxi from the hotel to ensure you get one with a meter, beware some of the hotel attendants must be in on the scam because we had a separate taxi called by the staff from the side of the car park and were charged more on the outward bound trip than the return (normal metered taxi). It wasn't a great deal of money in the scheme of things but it irked a bit that i'd also given a tip !
Still, live and learn
I reported the matter to the management but i never heard anything further. All the other staff, waiters, lift attendants etc were first class and always smiling.
