Noisy inconsiderate guests

Hotel was nice but a little dated. pool was actually warm but dangerous due to rough surfaces gekkos doing a good job of eating up the hundreds of red ants that try to enter the room while sleeping under the unit doors. there was a couple in the room next to us that were noisy late or I should say early 1am in the morning and when asked to quite down were abrupt and unpleasant. There is a need for security patrols in this large resort to stop this sort of behaviour.

Angenehmes Hotel mit 2 schönen Pools. Allerdings weit vom Zentrum entfernt und kein Supermarkt in der Nähe.

Riesige Anlage...

...bis man den Weg zum Zimmer kennt verläuft man sich rasch einmal. Mehrere saubere und gepflegte Pools. Teils laut da viele asiatische Gäste und viele Familien (die oft kaum Anstand kennen). Zimmer sauber und komfortabel, geräumige Nasszelle, bequeme Betten, Preis-Leistung deshalb durchwegs ok. Frühstücksbuffet (man bekommt Vouchers dafür angeboten an der Reception) auch zum vergünstigten Preis sein Geld nicht wert, kaum frische Sachen, höchstens ein paar Früchte, die sind aber schnell wieder weg... Kaum Fleisch oder Käse. Wer Weissbrottoast, Marmeladenbrot mit gesalzener Butter, fettige Fabrikwürstchen und Billigstorangensaft mag, wird damit aber dennoch glücklich werden.

Für eine Nacht geht's gerade noch

Das Hotel ist alt uns es wurde nie etwas investiert. Es ist alles vergilbt, riecht schmuddelig und ist alles andere als sauber. Der Ventilator und die Klimaanlage verteilen erstmal Staub und Haare von den anderen Gästen im Zimmer. Das Sevice Personal ist freundlich. Für eine Nacht geht's gerade so.
