Schmuddeliges und riechendes Zimmer

Pros: Lage des Zimmers / Meeresblick Pool hatte sehr gute Schwimmtiefe. Tischtennisplatten
Cons: Kosten des Hotels und die zusätzliche Hotelgebühr sind für die Leistungen zu hoch.
Location: Direkt am Strand - top Lage zum Stadt- / Inselkern ist ebenfalls top.
Schmuddeliges und riechendes Zimmer Flecken auf dem Sessel und der Bettwäsche. Keine Balkonabtrennung Brüstung defekt bzw. schlecht repariert Kabel an der Deckenlampe ohne Isolierung Tresorschlüssel verbogen Bettgestell mit scharfen hervorstehenden Kannten
