Big Apple Explorer Hotel

16 Jul 2008 Explorer1085990 said

I don't want to sound like a princess but i've read some terrible reviews about the Marrakesh and it sounds like the bed bug problem is still on-going. Some recent photos on tripadvisor showed a guy with some nasty looking bites all over his body. In a situation like that is there any kind of protocol for getting out of an unhygenic hotel like that, when your on a tour with everyone? Would it be ok to leave the hotel? Would the tour manager do anything about it? refund of money?

    First things first, if you do end up in any hotel which is unhygenic/dirty/bug infested then I would definitely call your TM to come and check it out.

    I would presume that your TM will do everything in his/her power to get you a new room as fast as possible, if they can.

    On the very odd occasion that that might not be possible (ie: if the hotel is fully booked) then, knowing the way Contiki TM’s operate, I can again say that I presume they will do everything they possibly can to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.

    Also, for the record, I do not think you’re a “princess” for asking this question. If I was in a room infested by bed bugs I too would be ensuring the problem was fixed, and fast.
