"Extremely disrespectful place"

"We prebooked for three nights, never had our room cleaned, had to go to office for clean towels and coffee. Very rude manager, never welcomed us, had to cover the pool and cover up at each use, had to phone to ask each time we wanted to swim. Beds were terrible. Will never stay there again."
