Discount Vacation Gone Bad

Have you ever found a really good deal on an all inclusive vacation only to find out that you wasted not only your money but your valuable vacation time? I had this happen to me once. The brochure and reality were two diffferent things! On the beach apparantly meant a 15 minute walk. 3 meals a day provided in a cafeteria style restaurant similar in ambience and food to an old age home. A pool surrounded by a few broken chairs you could never seem to get anyways. There was more but it was crazy. I travel a lot and I am not one of those people that expects everything to be 5 star. This was apparantly a 4 star but I would rate it as a 2.

The old addage 'You get what you pay for' generally is true. You paid a discount price and got a discount hotel. Its as simple as that. And really, is a 15 minute walk really that bad? Did you explore any ofthesurroundingcountryside ordid you just sit in your room and complain.
