Customer service was amazing. Bathroom stunk really yuck. Alot of dust on lights when moved for reading. Next door bar played music until midnight made it hard night to get some sleep. Went to leave at 8.15 and no one at reception and no instructions how to leave key. To get a morning sea view the windows were covered in humidity and water.
