1- cuando la señora nos mandó email xa saber el precio, ya nos proponía pagar un precio bastante mas bajo del presupuesto y a la llegada la señora no queria pagar la chica por la entrega de las llaves como por contrato por llegadas desde las 18.00 hasta las 8.00, porqué parece raro pero también los trabajadores tienen un horario de trabajo....2- El pobre señal del wifi era porqué la señora solia estar conectada con el laptop para ver la tv inglesa. El tecnico vodafone ha tenido que cambiar el router porqué al final se habia bloqueado. El servicio wifi se ofrece gratis a los clientes, no se cobra....3- la señora no ha respetado la privacy abriendo la corrispondencia del propietario...4- las sabanas estaban al suelo empujadas entre la pared y el armario juntas con las mantas nuevas todas manchadas (se puede tambien quitar manchas a mano o con algun producto especifico sin dejar las manchas 2 meses...pues las mantas ahora hay que tirarlas porqué las manchas no salen ) Si preguntar lo que ha pasado no está permitido pues pedimos que los inquilinos no ofendan el personal y que respecten los enseres y el trabajo que tienen que hacer las chicas de la limpieza para que todo sea perfecto para la nueva llegada. No hay recargo para la limpieza final, el precio es lo que se da al cliente por contrato. 5- la señora conoce el complejo porque ya habia estado y sabia el numero del bungalow que iba a ocupar, su posicion y tenia todas las fotos de la escalera etc etc cuando pagó el booking así que no entiendo sus quejas...Mi consejo es que la proxima vez escoja un hotel o un aparthotel donde pueda encontrar todo lo que necesita y sea mas a su gusto.
