Nice Hotel

The pool, the bathroom, the breakfast
We checked in and then asked to get boarding passes for our flight the next morning. They were very helpful with this but the computer was extremely slow. The guy who served us looked like he had been on since early morning and it was 4 pm. We wasted a lot of time and I didn't get my swim which I was looking forward to (my fault probably for asking) If you could print from your laptop that I had it would have helped. The room was great but my bed had padding under the bottom sheet which was very hot. I took it out and it was still very hot. Of course I didn't find the air conditioning which I could have turned on! The shower was very hard to turn on but we made it in the end. I would have liked a dressing gown so I could put my togs on to go down to the pool. Breakfast was lovely but expensive. The tea waitress was amazing and very observant. Service was good. We also could have walked out without paying as the eftpos machine wouldn't add it on to our account bill so we paid in the restaurant. When we walked in they took our room no. but obviously nothing was done after that.
