          Marita D
          Is it really that bad? We had two weeks here for New Year in 2001 and again two years later just after New Year and it was amazing. Thinking of booking for this New Years Eve for a special Anniversary but reading reviews it sounds like a place not to go back too. Would be disappointing for us as we have good memories of the hotel and Deep Bay.
