    “We had a fabulous holiday and would love to come back one day.”

    It may be useful for future holiday makers to have fully functional WiFi available. It was nigh - on impossible to stream anything on our devices. Please upgrade your plan. It may seem only a small thing, but in this day and age it’s an absolute necessity and this is how some people (us) relax.
