The hotel online appealed to us far more from photos than in real life - the photo's are very deceiving! First impressions are everything, and the staff certainly did not give off a good one! We were greeted with foul faced staff who couldn't even crack so much as a smile and would frequently swear and argue (especially Becki who worked in the snack hut outside - he was very sneaky and angry.) Fair enough the prices are very cheap and you pay for what you get but basic hygiene isn't much to ask for, we were self-catering but our cutlery was ridden with grease and the appliances didn't work, subsequently we had to eat out every night. Not to mention the air-conditioning didn't work! I stayed here whilst on holiday with 3 girl friends looking for fun in the rowdy town centre, however the hotel ruined this for us. A "cold and hostile atmosphere" we dreaded going back at night, the corridors were haunted and ridden with cockroaches. To top the end of this unpleasant stay we decided to try the hotels authentic BBQ night, but it was thoroughly disappointing - the meat was cold, dripping with blood and raw inside. When we asked for a refund the VERY RUDE old man who was serving and waiting us refused and shouted at us. He was also using a poor young boy as a slave and demanding him to clear the plates, so we ended up doing it for the poor little boy as he was in tears (SLAVE LABOUR COMES TO MIND?) we were horrified - to top this monstrosity off my friend spend the night being sick. Thank god we didn't half board, or even worse all inclusive!
