|Female Adults:||2||Tour Operator:||YOU TRAVEL|
|Number of Children:||2 (11-16yrs)||Board:||All Inclusive|
|Hotel clean around reception and bedrooms. Pool area clean.|
Staff extremely rude and not helpful in any way. Persistently ignored at the bar till German guests were served sometimes to the embarrasment of the German people.
Spoke very little or no English.
Animation team non existent between 9.30am and 9.00pm.
No children entertainment whatsoever.
The pool which was lovely and clean was nearly always empty due to the fact it was so cold, indoor pool closed!
Travel guide appeared once to sell us excursions never to be seen again till I complained and wanted a complaint form. Which when I had filled in I gave it to her while in the reception.
She noticed I had not put the booking reference number in, whilst going to the room to get it she promptly showed the form to the the hotel owner (not very ethical as I thought the form was in confidence between her and her customers)
Food choice disgraceful. Salad counter same for 2 weeks for breakfast lunch and evening meal just covered over bought back out.
At breakfast the cakes/stroke pastries same every day for the 14 days
Meat on evening reserved day after day in different guises.
All food descriptions in German.
The building site overlooking the pool startng at 7.30am finishing 7pm was an absolute nightmare.
I spent 3 days in bed Friday to Monday morning. Hotel nuurse whom I saw saturday did not speak English and eventually gathered the Doctor would not be at Hotel till Monday 1pm.
At which time I was taken straight to hospital in amubulance with a German women also suffering from food poisoning.
I remained in hospital for 3 days.
During my time in hospital my wife had to leave the children at the hotel and get taxis to the hospital 40 euros round trip 200 euros in total. The taxi drivers refused to give receipts so I cannot claim it back now.
My eldest daughter also suffered serious bowel problems which still persist now we are back in England and samples have been taken to a local hospital to be examined.
Leading up to my hospital admission the children ate bread only all day there were now restaurants in the vicinity, following my illness I refucsed to eat in there again so we had to travel by bus/taxi to Konkoy costing 20 euros each way plus the food and drink costs.
The holiday cost £2465.00 we took £500.00 spending money which we spent in the first week and had to spend in excess of £1000.00 on food (evening meals with drinks) taxis.
In 29 years on travel to Africa, All over Europe, Amercia and Carribbean. I have never encountered such rude and ignorant peoplestafcombined with disgraceful food and no activities whatsoever combined to make the worst holiday I have ever had and I am lookng to get compensation from the relevant people.

|Side lies about 50 miles from the airport and is a place of great archaeological interest. The beaches are small, sandy but quite large in places and have a limited amount of water sports for you to try. Accommodation tends to be more budget based, although there's a good variety of hotel and apartments to choose from. Shopping is an experience, as the locals can hassle you as you browse around ,but the evening brings numerous bars and discos to life in the old town, with the hotels providing some shows and cabaret.|
