          Hi-We are booked with you (1978983263) and I'm a bit worried about youre mixed reviews as this is a very long awaited trip for us.I have requested a ground floor room and hope that this can be accommodated as it is required due to health issues.Do you have to make our own way from the airport? Is the spa going to be open during our stay?
