When staying at a hotel, it is reasonable to have access to all areas, indeed it is the norm.
Not so if staying at Hotel Be Live Tenerife, where they operate a policy of segregation, roped off areas, where one pays 15 euros per person per day to access.
Areas that previously were freely available to all clients, as they should be. Clients have not paid to stay at a hotel, to find they are denied access to certain areas unless they pay a access fee.
A grassy area adjacent to the swimming pool is roped off. Around the pool, clients packed in like sardines, in part due to hotel a building site and should not be open, to access the grassy area, 15 euros per person per day. If you have the audacity to stray into this area, an aggressive lifeguard comes running over and orders you to leave.
Within the hotel restaurant, another segregated area.
Nescafe coffee machine within restricted restaurant area. Disgusting undrinkable coffee. But then what to expect from Nescafe?
Welcome to the Hotel Be Live Tenerife Adults Club scam.
And what is this Adults Club?
Not as some may have expected, orgies, swingers, porn on demand.
This grants you, for 15 euros per person per day, the following ´benefits´:
- access to segregated areas
- choice of pillows
- free newspaper
- bathrobe hanging in the wardrobe
- energy tower 3
- Nespresso machine
- two chocolates
There is a leaflet detailing these ´benefits´, only reception has no leaflets.
It is an insult to anyone who enjoys good coffee to offer a Nespresso machine.
The Nespresso machine takes up uncessary space in the room. No instructions on how to use. It also appears, from a leaflet in Spanish, have to pay 10 euros to use.
iPod dock seems to be non-existent. Instead a column speaker, energy tower 3, connected by bluetooth. Recognised by phone, not recognised by tablet. No instruction on use.
If wished a newspaper, would go out and buy one.
In other other words, Adults Club is a sick joke, a crude Be Live scam to extract more money from unsuspecting clients.
