We stayed an apartment at the Hotel Paradise Club.
The sliding patio door was stiff.
A bulb was out in the bathroom.
The tub latch to the bedroom door didn\'t work.
The TV reception was very poor and a continuous background noise made tv watching all but impossible.
The shower didn\'t drain too well.
The vanity mirror in the bathroom was loose.
The toilet roll holder in the bathroom was loose.
The towel rail in the bathroom was loose.
The robe hanger in the bathroom was loose.
The shower rail was loose.
The drawer to one bedside locker didn\'t close.
The front door didn\'t close without slamming - the jamb looked as if they had been jemmied.
There was a huge amount of plaster missing in the bedroom and the area was simply painted over, with paint that was full of dried paint flecks.
There was little sound reduction between rooms or apartments.
The cot ...
was less than acceptable - it was a travel cot.Read More
There were no coat hangers in the wardrobes in the lounge area and far from enough in the bedroom wardrobes.
There were no scald protection devices on the taps or showers. ( We had a youngster with us ).
There were wall lights touching the patio curtains and the plastic type blackout linings behind them.
There were four particularly sharp corners on the furniture in the lounge area. A tottering toddler could hurt themselves quite seriously on any of them.
There was some flowering shrub growing next to the balcony which needed pruning to allow the full use of the balcony area.
The bedding in the lounge couldn\'t be used as comfortable sitting areas.
On being used one of the \"plastic\" chairs on the patio collapsed. The occupant was slightly injured.
The entertainment was a joke, with the exception of the mini disco for the kids.
The pool was out of use for two days during our stay due to being full of sediment after rain.
The pool side paving is crumbling and you can\'t really walk barefoot around the pool safely.
There was plenty of ill mannered folks reserving sun beds, and more to our shame they were all Brits.
I\'d hesitate to recommend this hotel to others. I\'m not a fussy person. However, I think there\'s a point at which I feel that I am being ripped off.
We were not on a budget for this holiday, indeed we picked the most expensive of our quotes as we felt it suited our needs, which were suitably given to our travel agent in good time.
When this was brought to the Hotel Managers attention he did nothing. Well ok he did ... he assured me that the curtains were fire proof ... I took that as an admission that the lights touching the curtains were dangerous and indeed the plastic blackout curtains were not.
I will be taking much of the above up with both the Hotel owners and the Company we booked with as I feel they both did not live up to some simple requirements.
I\'ll also make sure I ask many many more questions in future and I\'d suggest we all do the same.
