1st night people were playing music extremely loud past 12.30pm. We tried ringing 24hr security but no one answered. My husband had to go out and ask them to turn it down. We flagged it up the next morning and the warden responded the next evening as we had to ring again.

Very poor service at the bar/restaurant. On our first day we used table app to order drinks and food, online wait said 1/2 hour for food, nothing arrived for nearly an hour. Spoke to waiter who said it was a 45 min wait for food, explained we still had not got our drinks! When food arrived nearly an hour after ordering, we still didn’t have the drinks, asked again where they were? They finally arrived towards end of finishing our meal. The frozen strawberry daiquiri cocktail had definitely not got any rum in it, was just a strawberry slush! By this time we decided to leave and never went back for the remainder of the stay for even a drink.
The waiter said it was due to not having enough staff!
