Disappointing & dirty.

We stayed here on recommendation and were very excited at the prospect. We arrived at the airport and waited for the car we had paid for but it never arrived. I phoned the resort and was told that they had forgotten and we would have to get a taxi. We organised a taxi and after a terrifying 45 minute ride through the dark, we arrived at the resort and we were given an apology but not offered a refund for the taxi or the missed car. The apartment we were shown to, was a spacious and well presented with comfortable furniture and all mod cons. However, in the cold light of day the truth was extremely different. There was mould on the furniture and curtains, the fridge was dirty inside and out. The balcony/patio was slippy with mould and algae. There was an ants nest in the doorframe and the electrics were dangerous with bare wires sprouting from some of the sockets. We ventured out to the pool, which was unattended, to find that the poolside was just as slippy with algae as the balcony, in fact at least two guests slipped and fell on the walkway. On the up side, the restaurant was clean, friendly and provided excellent service and top quality food. The beaches were pretty rough with litter and even a dead dog on one. A couple of people were refused exit from the beach until they had paid the local police a fine for being Scottish. I know how ridiculous this sounds but apparently it's not uncommon for the police to fine you for using the beach or sun beds or for just being there, if you refuse they threaten to arrest you and lock you up for 48 hours. I wouldn't recommend this resort to anyone unless you are prepared to be treated badly and ripped off. Our deposit that we paid as security at the beginning of our stay was not refunded and on my return to the UK I found to my horror that it had actually been taken twice on my credit card. I never got the money back even though we didn't damage anything.Read More
