The hotel is not actually bad but I gave it a 1 star because not a single staff that works there is friendly, Front Office, Housekeeping, Security. Terrible treatment, & not us only I watched one of them bad mouthing a tourist while she's not understanding arabic. Although it's the same company But I would recommend Otium Aloha Better.

This was our 3rd time here at the Shores. Refurbishments to reception and dining area were better than the previous layout/decoration, and the water slide was bonus. However, we were in the minority being English - the majority being Russian guests. Mohammed on reception made us very welcome, as always. Food was nowhere near as good as in previous years,...

The shore diving and the on site dive centre are fantastic and the costs are reasonable. Particular thanks to Ibrahim the smiling dive instructor. I'm afraid that's the good... More

We were here 4 years ago. This time we experienced that more thing was changed. The quality of accommodation, beverages, meals, cleanness not changed.
