Upon arrival it was disappointing to find that the family room that we were told had separate access and egress for each room was not the case as one couple had to access the entrance/exit via the other couples room which lacked a lot of privacy.We tried to resolve via YGT but to no avail and the cost of changing would be excessive so this proved very embarrassing to say the least.The airport transfer on the last day was a shambles despite my checking the day before that all was ok the transfer failed to turn up and when I challenged why I was told by ATS that the driver had gone to the wrong hotel which I find hard to believe. The staff were wonderful in arranging a taxi for a dash to the airport as we almost missed our flight,luckily we just made it ! everything else at the hotel was fine and the staff were friendly and helpful. Another point I would like to make is that we were promised 24 complimentary balls as part of the booking ...these never arrived despite my chasing up with YGT prior to going on holiday and have still not arrived to date!!
