It’s Enough To Make You Want To Cancel Your Reservation

Costa Rica Humour – A vacation is supposed to be your time away from the crazy. These are actual complaints (and some not) received by vacation operators from dissatisfied customers.

5218419951_30523e6d5c_o11. “We went on holiday to Costa Rica and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.”

2. “There were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners.”

3. “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”

4.  “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”

5. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”

6.  “No-one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.”

7. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers.”

8. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.”

9. “The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun.”

10. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Costa Rica to Europe. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”

11. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends’ three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller.”

12.  “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”

13. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.”

14. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel.”

15. “I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes.”
