The standard room we booked turned out to be a very small dark room at the back of the property, with no aircon, no bedside tables and with a lot of noise from the plumbing pipes. Due to lack of aircon, the windows had to be open, with attendant noise from the carpark and from donkeys. This (plus plumbing noises) meant we could not hear the TV, which had one English channel, and had the sound limited. The breakfast buffet often ran out of bread. Coffee was poor - out of thermos flasks. Upon request one espresso or cappucino was provided per person. More than one attracted a charge, as did bacon and eggs. Pool loungers were always full, so we didn't use the pool. Parking was also full on 2 occasions. Not at all relaxing. I asked to change the room, but none was available. Was told that I had only booked a standard room!
