Usually I don't do reviews but this time I decide to do because I am not totally agree with the review before. During my holidays... More

I have just returned from from my 3rd holiday at Fort Arabesque am pleased to say that once again I have had a lovely relaxing time. My room was on the second floor in a quiet area of the hotel which suited me perfectly. Out of the patio doors was a picture perfect view of the stunning bay and grounds... More

As an English couple on all inclusive we hated it. Spent the whole week wishing it away so we could go home. Hotel was rammed with rude Italian families who shove past you.
