Bad location, incompetent reception staff

The hotel was clean and well maintained. It was not in a good location at all for visiting the centre or beach. If you have no car, expect to pay a minimum of €30 return for a trip to the centre. There are no restaurants nearby so that is the only option. The buses are unreliable and infrequent. The reception staff were not forthcoming with any information and often inaccurate. The shuttle bus to the beach and city centre operated at peculiar times and was only able to take 8 passengers in the van. If you booked the 0930 bus out, you could only take the 1630 bus back- only two trips there and back! There was no evening shuttle to the centre,the last bus going in at 1830. We booked the hotel taxi (€10 one way) in the evening for three consecutive trips into the centre. My daughter was not well enough to go into the centre on the first night so we cancelled that day. The receptionist then cancelled the remaining trips without telling us and no explanation was given. Very poor! We booked the hotel taxi to take us to the airport on our departure and it didn’t turn up. No apology given by the receptionist or the manager or explanation. We nearly missed our flight. The restaurant menu was lacking variety and imagination and overpriced. The restaurant staff were lovely though. It would be better to get a hotel more centrally located and nearer to the bus station. The taxis are a rip off ,too.

0/10 do NOT recommend

Very bad!! Didn't even stay one night of our four night stay because the hotel was so terrible. The beds are horribly uncomfortable, my boyfriend laid down for a 10 minute nap after we checked in and he woke up with neck and back pain, we asked if we could switch rooms but were told all the mattresses throughout the hotel are the same, we were given one additional pillow which obviously did not help. At reception, the staff argued with us about not giving us our money back. The hotel is not as advertised online. The pool is very small, the free shuttle service offered must be reserved a full day in advance, and it's very, very noisy, you can hear everything that goes on in the halls and upstairs. We were told the manager and owner cannot be contacted and of course the receptionist didn't have the authority to reimburse us but would'nt call the manager or owner for approval and would'nt give us the phone number, which seems rather shady... Reception told us we had to come back the following morning at 8am to speak with the manager, who might not even be there. Very odd. We were either going to book another hotel or get flights out of the city and end our holiday short. This hotel was SO bad that we legitimately considered just leaving the country. We ended up staying at the Four Points by Sheraton which was a much nicer experience. I would highly suggest anyone considering staying at Hotel Villa Del Bosco reconsiders and looks at the Four Points by Sheraton instead.
