          When do you intend to remove the receptionist from her position at the front desk, who causes a lot of grief for a lot of guests, ruining their holiday? Or are the owners too afraid to do this in case this Spanish national gets upset. She would not last very long in a similar job in UK, or anywhere else outside Spain.
