BRIT teens running around half naked and on hippy crack ruined a quiet Thomas Cook holiday to Zante for mum and daughter, it has been claimed.
Susan Dunnachie, 45, and her mum Sandra, 67, were hoping to have a relaxing holiday in the sun after paying nearly £1,000 to stay at the Zante Plaza Hotel & Apartments which was described as a family friendly on Thomas Cook’s website.
However, when Susan first arrived she said she was horrified to see youngsters using nitrous oxide, which is also known as hippy crack or laughing gas, and dumping the empty cannisters in common areas of the hotel.
She said the groups of young people appeared to be in their late teens or early twenties, were noisy at night, walked around with hardly any clothes on and participated in drinking games
Susan told The Daily Record: “There had been people taking hippy crack. There were cannisters lying.
“There were men at the bar and the barman was encouraging drinking – things like ‘five seconds to down a drink’.
“They were waking about half naked in fishnet dresses. And I have a picture of a guy walking in the middle of the reception wearing just his boxer shorts.
“I paid almost £1000. I want an apology.”
Susan requested to have her room moved so she could get away from what she described as “party central”.
The holiday was only for a week, but Susan said she would have definitely come home early if she had booked her stay for two weeks.
Susan’s experience at the Zante Plaza Hotel & Apartments comes as another family claimed their holiday was ruined after staying at the same hotel.
Clare Gilbey, 41, claimed her £3,500 holiday was ruined by teen yobs who had sex in the pool and did drugs all day.
She said the hotel felt more like Club 18-40 holiday than a place for family of five.
She told Mirror Online: “As soon as we booked in we saw kids off their faces, they were jumping from balcony to balcony, lounging around the pool looking totally out of it.
“There were gas canisters all over the place by the pool, you’d see them littered around the floor everywhere.
“I saw one couple together in the water and I hate to think what they were doing. It certainly looked like it was very rude.”

Thomas Cook has since changed the description of the Zanta Plaza Apartments on their website and it is now listed it as suitable for young couples and groups of friends.
A spokesperson for Thomas Cook said: “Customer feedback is very important to us and we recognise that we got the description for the Zante Plaza Hotel & Apartments as a family hotel wrong.
“This has now been updated and we are very sorry for Ms Dunnachie’s recent experience. Our team will be in touch with Ms Dunnachie to discuss further.”
