Main complaint drivers
(e.g. bungalows affected by noisy pool bar; spring break groups; bathrooms worn)
At the moment the most common complaints is that some facilities that were advertised on TUI website are not ready, for example saunas and spa. To solve this we need to update the website with only the facilities that are actually open. Another common complain is that the rooms are smaller and look different than advertised on website. Again for this we have to update with the correct photos. People have complained about the balconies and views in the premium rooms.
