When we checked in there was a mixup with our booking on booking.com and they said what we paid for was not enough rooms for our family. Even though that wasn't our fault the staff made us feel like it was and with no other options but to pay more money. We resolved the issue in the end but was not pleased with how they handled it. Also they offer kids eat free under 10 with paying adult meal in the restaurant but had hassles with that too.
