I tend to research hotels well in advance, so I don't really get any bad surprises wherever we stay. I know what I want and I usually know what to expect, which is why my reviews aren't damning :) My general feeling is that if you pay a low price for a holiday (nothing wrong with that, I do it all the time), you can't really complain that it's not a 5 star - if you're paying a lot, make sure you KNOW in advance that where you're staying doesn't fall short of the standards you expect. Why waste your money? If you want to drink Champagne, don't expect to pay cheap plonk prices! I don't like to have children screaming and running around me when I'm trying to relax, so I avoid such places. If you do have children, then you should probably steer clear of places that advertise themselves as quiet, calming or relaxing. Just sayin' :)
