"It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time. This should be banned".
A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she'd been locked in by staff. When in fact she had mistaken the 'Do Not Disturb' sign on the back of the door as a warning to remain in the room.

"The beach was too sandy."
An angry guest came down to the front desk of a Holland America Line cruise ship demanding a different room. The attendant tried to calm him down and find out why he disliked his cabin so much. He responded: "I paid a lot of money for this cruise and was promised a sea view, the only thing I can see through my window is the damned parking lot!" The ship had not yet left the dock.
"We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."
"Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."
"We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."

"I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."
"The brochure states: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We are all trainee hairdressers - will we be okay staying here?"
"There were too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners."
"We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."
"It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."
"I was bitten by a mosquito. No-one said they could bite."
"My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."
A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time.
"We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."
A hotel guest complained that his hotel room overlooking Sydney's Manly beach was unsuitable because the sound of the sea kept him awake.
"Why on earth did they build Windsor Castle on the flight path of Heathrow?"
"The disappointment telling the children that the reindeer could not fly was incredible. You must state this clearly in your brochure."
