Margaret Busby, a 63-year old disabled pensioner, is complaining that the ‘nice and peaceful’ holiday she asked for turned out to be a Hard Rock clone with non-stop parties and freaked out teenagers.
Magaluf Resort in Majorca, Spain
Mrs. Busby, who hails from Bispham near Blackpool, Lancashire, needs a wheelchair or walking sticks to get around, and is calling her brief stay at the Aparthotel Fiesta Jungla in the Magaluf resort on Majorca, Spain a ‘Holiday from Hell.’
Apparently she saw a window advert for a ‘Thomson Freestyle’ package and enquired about it.
This is what the brochure says – “You’ll find accommodation that ranges from some of the coolest destination hotels on the planet to hip villa retreats on the beach. And whichever you choose, expect a holiday that packs in more style than a Milan catwalk.”
Sounds pretty innocent, relative to a Holiday from Hell. To be fair, the travel agents tried to talk her out of it, and offered her other options, but she wouldn’t take no for an answer, and demanded to go freestyle.
To make a long story short, Mrs. Busby found herself in a hotel packed to the rafters with out of control teenagers, loud music from a female DJ with a foul mouth, and drunken revellers having sex in the pool.
Mrs. Busby has now filed a complaint, and even though the travel agents did nothing wrong, the question still remains. Why would anyone in their right minds send a disabled 63 year old woman to a party hotel famed for its nightlife and full of drunken teenagers? Should Margaret Busby get her £300 back?
