We had it all! A fire in the hotel basement which in our opinion was handled very badly. No fire procedures put into action. We have complained to Fleetway Travel but have been fobbed off with excuses about the fact that we didn't complain to their handling company in Dubai at the time of the incident (2am in the morning)....

On the plus side, we had a comfortable sea-view room, decent bar service and the buffet meals, although not having a large selection, were very good. Lobby lounge quite comfortable. For those who prefer a good walk, the area is beautiful. We hated the pre-prepared tea and coffee
