Juat arrived home after two nights (2-4 March 2012)
Arrived to a tired looking reception staff member who asked if I had been before...When I replied no she ran very quickly through the fact I had to pay £30 (some you got back) for sheets and £5 for electricity..my fault maybe that I didnt know this but never remember it being on line, advising me this is what I had to do??
Then ahe told me to have a nice stay!! Shell shocked, I stood there for a minutes and then went back to speak to another memeber of staff...She was lovely, took pitty on me and my daughter and gave us some sheets for free!
Apartment was clean, no problems there but the whole place seems shabby, run down and unkempt...bit of a joke really when you consider how much money this place must make...cost me near enough a small holiday to Spain over the two days as prices are extortionate in the shops, and the one shabby 'restaurant' and fish and chip bar.
Had prepaid for three vouchers for the activities, some of which she was too small to use and some were simply closed..but dispite it all she enjoyed her stay and so thats all that counts to me...but never again will I visit this place - should be value for money, but I'm affraid it's not!
