My husband & I had booked a holiday on the Costa del Sol in Spain. We love Andalusia ~ but not Torremolinos. Anyway, we found ourselves booked into a hotel in that very town.
We were on the main road, so lorries passed our room constantly ~ night and day. There was an outdoor cinema ~ right outside our bedroom window, so we could watch and hear films all through the night ~ a novelty at first.
The food was disgusting ~ flies everywhere.
The swimming pool contained about one foot of green slimy water.
The bed was infested with various varieties of insects ~ and cockroaches lived in the cupboards.
The water was turned off regularly.
We filled the bath, and bought a bucket, so that we would have water to flush the toilet ~ but the maid very kindly emptied it for us.
We complained, but were told that there was a drought on the Costa, so that no hotels had water. Furthermore, we couldn't move because the whole of the Costa del Sol was fully booked.
We did a bit of detective work, discovered that this was completely untrue, demanded to see the rep (who had pretended not to be in) and got ourselves moved to a luxury apartment, in the hills, further along the Costa.
Our nightmare hotel behind is, we started to have a really lovely holiday.
