Ok stay”

The hotel's location was the best part of our stay as it's on the beachfront. The room was spacious with a king size bed. Breakfast was good but staff were not attentive in bringing tea/coffee or clearing up tables. Towels in room were very old and frayed around the edges.

Disappointment”

Oh joy, the exhaust fan has decided to take a vacation. How delightful. And of course, why would there be a switch at the bed for the lights? That would just be too convenient. Let's not forget the luxury of having only one plug point available at the table, because who needs more than that, right? And who needs an additional plug point near the bed when you can just stretch your phone charger across the room? The lovely gap between the windows is just the cherry on top, providing us with a constant symphony of noise. And let's not forget the generosity of providing us with only one water bottle for the entire trip. How thoughtful. Oh, and don't even get me started on the lightning-fast email responses and lightning-slow direct call answers. It's almost like they want us to suffer.
