BEACH WEEK: Buyer Beware

You've saved up and FINALLY you're going to take that trip you've been wanting to take for ages. You've scoured the internet, found the best deal, and booked the most awesome hotel.
Maybe somewhere like this? Look at this pool! He has a surfboard! Let's book now!


But in actuality it ended up like this:


Um...this is a teeny HOT TUB, not a pool. Where's the dude? Where's the surf board? I spent my money on this?

Welcome to the world of oyster.com. It's an awesome website that shows real hotel reviews. I'm bookmarking this so I won't be bamboozooled again. Those dang photogs!

Has this ever happened to you? Share in the comments!
