now about the hotel itself: food will not go hungry, no frills, service at its best
but with the number we were not lucky. rooms 160 - 162 face a narrow passage between buildings where the sun never shines, when you enter you feel stagnant dampness, very poor lighting
There was a safe in the room without a lock.
the worst thing is when we came back the room was cleaned but not locked!!! ! I noticed this the next day, (scrolling through my memory I realized that I didn’t click the lock on the first day) it seems to be normal for the maid
once again I draw your attention to the fact that the release of the rooms at 10 am
We went as a family with a 6-year-old child in a great mood in August this year. We represented Spain and the people living in this country as cheerful and hospitable!
Just remember their incendiary dances! Flamenco, Antonio Banderas, corida, football!! ! And you already want to go? And watch this country? But instead you see lazy, impudent, unsmiling people? ! Disappointment!...
Before that, we were in Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Finland, Sweden, Greece, Egypt, and nowhere have we seen such treatment of vacationers. Where you are shown from the first day who is the boss!
Hotel? well, nothing so-so, you can live. If you are not an impressionable person and not notice the waiters who have become fat from their own laziness! It doesn’t even occur to them that a person can watch them! The waitresses kneel open the pantry located next to your table. A dirty plastic bucket is placed in front of your nose to make it easier to clean up the garbage. Bon appetit gentlemen! Or are we nobles ? ! And the faces!! ! Smile only to the French! Russians, in my opinion, are generally not considered people. If you don’t like it, don’t go! You won’t see fried eggs or scrambled eggs for breakfast, is it someone who needs to do all this ? ! And so in the evening you suffered sausage and cheese and be satisfied! (Here readers may object that in Europe they say everywhere this is the so-called continental breakfast! So from what continent? In Greece, Sweden, Finland were, everything was like that, but here what Spaniards don't eat eggs?
And olives grow everywhere, so you won’t see them on the table or something like that! Paella is frozen from a bag, you don’t feel the soul! Yes, that's what I was dreaming about. . .
At the reception they speak Russian, only some of them are exhausted either by us or by the financial crisis.
The beach is small pebbles, the sea is cool 20-22gr. It often storms.
Sunbeds and an umbrella for 5 euros each! The sea, but beautiful and most importantly very clean. You come to the beach, sit down and admire it and your child playing near the bank. And suddenly your idyll ends! Local Spaniards come up and throw their rookery almost on your feet. Enjoy citizens resting their bodies, by no means the bodies of Ronaldo and Banderas!
We decided one day to go to Barcelona ourselves, went to buy bus tickets. So they have a siesta! The number of flights has been reduced! We would have found enterprising people who would add flights if they were in demand. We bought tickets a few hours later. While we were waiting, we thought that we would arrive in Barcelona too late and that 2 hours would not be enough for us to inspect. We decided to hand them over ! ! Those who want the sea... The cashier interrogated us, why are we renting? We had to say that our child was sick, because. judging by her face, she simply would not have accepted other answers. (Our daughter was really kind of lethargic). Well, okay, she had nowhere to go, but she showed her superiority by throwing 40 euros almost in the face of her husband. He was saved by a window between this evil Spaniard! Isn't this woman dancing flamenco? We got to Barcelona a few days later. We liked her. Impressive. The architecture is amazing! Theft is also amazing! They robbed 2 of us from the bus, so they didn’t have time for the tour! In our free time from the tour, we decided to go to the store and decided to buy a jacket for the child. We look at the checkout line is small, we have time before the departure of the bus. There is no one behind us !! ! A Spaniard of 50-55 years old comes up and says she allegedly stood in front of us. From the faces of others, I understand that this did not happen! Okay, we, who are standing with a child, do not feel sorry for letting an elderly lady through, I was taught to show respect as a child! What was our surprise when 6 more Spaniards approached her and began to pay for one thing! We ran back to the bus! . .
What about medical help? ? Do we scold ours? So they have it just awful, God forbid! Our child had an earache before departure. We decided, for the first time in our lives abroad, to seek medical help. Moreover, before I always took all the medicines! And here is Spain! Civilization! I relaxed . . We went to the pharmacy and asked for drops in the ear for children, no, they say for children in Spain, which are for adults, these are also for children! I looked at the composition, and there are benzoic groups that children cannot. We called the doctor, maybe with a prescription? We waited for him for 3 hours. At that time, I sent my husband for those drops in case there was no doctor at all, the child was already howling in pain! After 3 hours, a taxi came for us and said that the doctor sent and we need to go to Blanes, a neighboring town. Arriving, we sat in line and waited for 3 hours, watching how a little Spaniard with a fever sits for 3 hours and his mother pours a suspension from his temperature, a woman with a suspicion of a fracture sits for 3 hours, an African American feels bad and has chills, and also the poor awaits his fate? ! We didn't want anything anymore! Only now, they thought if we leave, the police will not issue a fine, for false appeal, since they left? We waited for the doctor, he looked into the ear, saying that yes, a very difficult case and the drops that we bought would suit us. He approved that we gave Nurofen, but he didn’t drink Erespal, what is it? At least our doctors, for the sake of decency, look into the throat. And this is not nonsense! We paid 130 euros for a consultation and a taxi. They said that in Russia the money would be returned! And if something is more serious, God forbid!...
The next day we flew home! To Russia! Arriving, everything was so dear to me and our people and everything pleased! And you know how we would not scold the Russian people, but we are better than those Spaniards!
