    LAMENTED AND INDULGE

    Dear Sir,

    I would like to know whether is this two words used correctly.

    Customers lamented that it was a pity not having enough time to indulge in this hotel.

    Thank you.

    Re: LAMENTED AND INDULGE

    When you lament something you say it's a pity; you don't 'lament that it's a pity'.

    And you don't indulge in a hotel, although you can indulge yourself at a hotel or 'indulge in a second pudding''.

    How about 'Customers regretted that they didn't have time to make the most of/take full advantage of the hotel' (I'm assuming that they stayed at the hotel, but didn't have time to use the jacuzzi!)
