Me and my boyfriend went to the forum beach on the 31st of July. I had read some bad Reviews but my boyfriend just said some people might be fussy, lets hope everything will be okay for us. We arrived at 1.45 in the morning to find out that there was no room under our name. I had rung up numerous of times before our holiday to check everything was in place and they said everything was. Obviously not!! I had ALL the paper work that they sent me Confirming the dates times, the room that had been booked, everything was in black and white right in front of him but he said there was nothing booked. we had booked a Superior room at the front of the hotel with a sea view which of course we were not getting. I then asked what on earth is going to happen and he said I have only one room at the back of the hotel. Room 910! He said come back half 9.30 tomorrow and you will have your room (we didnt get out room) It was half 2 when he gave us a room to stay in for the night and it was terrbile. we walked in and the lights wouldn't turn on. It was like a Sauna in there. the aircon didn't work and the doors wouldn't open eaither. after half an hour the lights turned on and we saw what we were sleeping in that night. the bed was not made, 2 doors had punch marks in them and the taps wouldn't work. I didn't sleep the whole time I was in that room and at that time I was not staying at that hotel. I had read about towels being on sun beds in the morning. Well that's right. I got my boyfriend up at half 6 and said we are leaving now. As we walked out into the pool side EVERY sun bed was gone. who on earth got up that early and did that? So me and my boyfriend sat on a wall till half 9. 9.30 came along and nida came in. Was she walked into Reception and looked stunned when she saw lots of families and couples waiting for rooms they didn't have. she came straight over to me and asked what the problem was and then she smiled and said I will do something very special for you, I will move you to a different hotel. At that point I thought maybe something good will come to this holiday. She told me about it and that it was a sister hotel down the road. It was called the Residents hotel. It was an adults hotel so there would be no children running around and it was alinclusive with no extra charge. I talked to my boyfriend and we both said yes. nida kindly took us in her car in the new hotel and it was beautiful. we were given Champagne as we walked in then we got taken on a tour of the hotel. the only problem was that we couldn't get out room ill 2 in the after noon as people needed to check out and it had to be cleaned. But we didn't car we were just glad to be out of the forum beach. the days went on and we had a lovely time. Breakfast was the best week of the day. Lunch wasn't great but you got served nice pizza at the pool. Dinner was okay but could of been a little better. the drinks were fine. Yes watered down but that's what you get everywhere. the pool and bar was clean and every morning I saw the maid cleaning the side pool. the hot tubes where always clean and so where the rooms. The entertainment was a little poor but I suppose you make a night what you want it to be. you are close to the shops. Me and my boyfriend went walking everyday to the shops and it was a lovely walk. We went to roads town 3 times and it was stunning. The buss stop it only up the road. €2.40 for a buss, which it very good as it takes you right to the centre of old roads town. So over all a nice holiday. me and my boyfriend might go back there but not in a hurry.
Last little thing. the last 2 days we had been there the hotel started to get really busy. We talked to the only English family there and they said the same thing. how they are over booking at the forum beach and they don't have any rooms so they are sending them over hear. so everyone reading this please please don't waste your money there!
