The many bad reviews written about this hotel got me so worried that I made enquiries prior to my departure to change my holiday package.

The hotel was fantastic, although it was full, it...

Don't be put off by some of the reviews which slate the place. We tried to cancel our holiday after we read the reviews and we were very glad that we did not. I think out of the hundreds of people that go there must only be a few dissatisfied people. We went 30.07.06 to 14.08.06. - 2 adults and...
