The bathroom was terrible and I got infection as a result. The water was filling the whole place due to poor drainage. The restaurants are excellent. I didn't like the smell in the bedsheet

I was disappointed with my stay at the Sea Cliff. I booked a deluxe sea facing room, when I got to my room, I checked and could not see the sea from room. I was directly above the roof and trees. I called to the reception to ask about this and if I could be switched rooms, and they said no. I felt ripped off. I wanted to order room service, when I called they weren't answering. The reception told me they would have the room service call me back. Half an hour later, still no call back. When I called back, same thing: reception said they would call me back. After waiting for 10-15 minutes, I have up. I was getting ready for bed in the bathroom, when I heard someone banging on my door shouting 'room service': instead of calling me back, they thought it would be better to come get my order in person, past midnight!!! Very disappointed with my stay, will most definitely not stay there again.
