We didn’t see anything like this when we were there during first week in September and no mention of those on the activities programme.

My daughter recently stayed at this hotel with her family. On the last day of her holiday ( 1st September 2018) she mislaid the key to the safe in her room. When you have got two young children to look after , sometimes things do go missing. After spending a great deal of time trying to find it, she told the hotel reception what had happened. The safe contained passports and money . Obviously she could not leave the country without them. She was told that she would not be given another key to open the safe unless she paid a 50 Euros fee. The holiday was booked with First Choice . I can understand a token fee for another key being charged , but 50 Euros is absolutely extortionate. They would not give her another key to open the safe unless she handed over the 50Euros. I intend to contact First Choice to check this out on her behalf. Has this happened to any other guests who have stayed at this this hotel? Any help would be appreciated.

I stayed here recently and had no issues like this but is it an actual metal key? Or a card? As if it’s a metal key they’d have to cut a new one and the cost would be about 40€ or more as this is how much they just cost!
