sejour minable. Avec d abord, le staff tout sauf cordial.... Apparemment ca a l air trop complique de dire bonjour ou aurevoir, ou encore de donner quelques infos sur les activites proposees. On m a refuse la reduction de 10% avec la carte de membre alors que j y avais droit en me sortant des excuses foireuses à 2-3 reprises, me renvoyant vers le manager qui n etait jamais là... Je passerais sur le fait qu il n y avait qu une clé pour 10 ou encore les douches d une autre epoque
