“I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said.

“Everywhere you go, you could smell weeds burning – around the hotel, around the pool, so it was pretty shocking.”

David continued: “He ran up to me and said ‘this guy has come up to me on the beach and offered me drugs’.

“We only got out at 12.30. We could not go out and have breakfast – I kept calling the front desk but nothing was done.”

He added: “It was a nightmare. It was going to be our dream vacation, we got it moved back from last year.
