If your hotel can't fix the issue for you, you should contact the operator's staff or follow the instructions in your travel documents to give the operator the opportunity to resolve it for you.
If you can't reach the local agents / representatives,or things are still not satisfactory to you; call us or contact us here in the UK. We'd rather help put things right if we can while you are on holiday, rather than when its too late after your holiday!
