We were there last week.The funny part is that we had a VERY disgruntled attendant who tried to charge us 22 euro for sitting under a shade that had no chairs . Naturaly we moved even after trying to explain that when we sat there it was in the sun. !! He even moved a family with two tiny tots from an umbrella without chairs still demanding 22 euro . Disgraceful , not only taking away the view , demanding money for just being there. Not a good Advertisment for P.P . ( Yes I understnd the franchise system etc. but come on )

We are not beach people but saw this happening a few times, I believe over all PP is not the carefree resort it used to be, now it is how much money can we get the tourists to pay. The following happened to us three times in bars, paying bills for drinks that come 19, 24, or 29 euros and having to ask for the change. Staff just assuming that they can keep the odd euro is not acceptable, but it happens.
