This was disappointing
6 December 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I was really disappointed when I watched this. (I have watched the first four episodes only.) Because, there is a wonderful Swedish comedy called "Sällskapsresan" ("The charter trip"), which is about the same thing. A holiday resort with reps and guests. And that is great fun - ALL the time you recognize some situation from when you were yourself a guest at one of these places.

But in "Playa del Sol" there is none of that - which is incredible, as there are so many things in the business that you COULD make a joke out of. But they do not use these. Instead there is a lot of internal squabbling between the reps and their boss, that could be from ANY business. And it is not very interesting either.

The jokes fall short of the mark at all times, and the actors are dull and uninteresting.
