This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. When we arrived we weren't greeted, just had out passports taken from us to be kept by the hotel, keys thrown at us and told what floor our room was on.
When we got t our room it was boiling! And to our total disbelief considering we'd requested a balcony and superior room, it was missing a balcony, air conditioning and only had a window that would open 3inches at most. Baring in mind we were staying for 2 weeks mid July/August in almost 50degree heat...
When we complained about our room before even putting our suitcases down, the pleasant man who didn't greet us and almost assaulted us by handing us our room keys, shrugged and said we had to talk to the manager in the morning.
We stayed in the room praying that night.
The next morning we met the darling manageress, she was something from a horror story and had the worst attitude towards paying guests I have ever witnessed.
We had to stay 2whole week's in that dreaded room and we weren't the only guests occupying it the whole time. On many occasions we had to get the cleaners to kill cockroaches bigger than the mouldy, rusted old plugholes in the bathroom.
We got scared to open the gap of our window.
The only chance we got to have dry towels for showers were when the cleaners changed them after a week. Thanks to the lack of air...
The beds creaked and represented a more brickwork feel than a mattress to sleep on. The floors weren't clean on arrival. I'm almost glad we went all inclusive when you saw the filth in the pots, pans and dishes.
The food....what can I say!? We lived mostly off the watery lettuce, hard boiled eggs and bread. It was practically the same selection all day every day. Dry fries, soaking salad, over cooked and dried out pasta or sometimes e if you were lucky, and some form of meat that was unidentifiable after it was boiled to...beyond death.
The staff on reception were appalling and the worst I've come across.
The bar staff were too friendly. friendly got asked if my breast we're real, if my eyes were real,and I got asked if they could take a picture of me, almost everyday. Total disgrace but nobody to complain to.
All the tiled areas of the hotel were smashed somewhere or somehow. I grazed my knee in the pool on several pieces of broken tiles. You were chucked off the broken sun loungers before the sun disappeared behind the ugly hotel building, and sometimes you weren't allowed around the pool till we'll after breakfast because the astrology old git 'cleaning', wasn't done yet...had plenty of time to help himself to customer buffer with his dirty unwashed hands though...
I will never return to this hotel and I told the vial horror character that was the manageress that I would write such a review when she literally did nothing for us our entire holiday, then and then to rub it all in refused to let us have any food or drink after breakfast when our flight was till 2am.
My friend and I did not get a good deal on this hotel at all, it was not good value for money and I almost want to cry when I think of the money and time I spent there.
A good point was that other great restaurants and McDonald's (which is all we could really afford since we went all inclusive and didn't expect to have to eat out at every meal time) was a short walk away.
You may not believe it, but this is a fully truthful and honest review of this hotel by a genuine, far from picky 22year old girl.
