Private taxi expensive mistake
Author Name: unhappyholiday
Disadvantages: Don't go away in August
Travel republic charged me £94 for a taxi both ways airport to hotel and hotel to airport. The same journey in a Spanish taxi was 20 euro and the bus was 2.85 euros. They ripped me off. This wasn't the worst though as we waited an hour for someone to pick us up and when I made enquires we eventually got a driver to take us to the airport as we had been forgotten. The driver was very tired and fed up (and told us several times) and unfortunately didn't know the hotel so took over an hour to get us to the hotel when the journey time should have been about 25 minutes.
The hotel we had booked into wasn't comparible to its star rating. The staff were all unhappy and went on stike while we were there. Travel republic advertised a lovely looking pool but it wasn't part of the hotel. The hotel pool we could not get near as there were so many people in the hotel most were going down at 6am in the morning to grab a sunlounger. The pool advertised was a minibus ride away and we had to pay 16 euros for the use of that every day.
There was no local night life there was a bar and a restuarant within walking distance but they were nothing special but at least we could get out of the heaving hotel and get a drink.
It was probably the worst holiday I have been on.
Summary: I don't recommend Travel republic because they overcharged and the photo of the pool was incorrect.
