The rooms are massive and there is plenty of space. We went as two adults and two children age 7 and 13. The pool is gorgeous as you can see from photos, animation staff are funny, friendly and great with the children (although am aware they change almost every year) They have daytime activities for children, although it is usual...

Reading some of the reviews here, a think a lot of people expect a lot for very little money. We paid a grand total of about £900 for two people including flights, a weeks accommodation, all inclusive meals and drinks, transfers and a check in bag each. That's a weeks holiday for £450 each all in! That's not bad going.... More

After booking hurriedly and then reading reviews, we were expecting the worst with the Shalimar. It wasn't the best but it didn't affect our holiday. The hotel and complex could be very nice with a little TLC. A lovely spacious building with a grand lobby and a superb pools, both indoor and out. Large bedrooms. The staff were pleasant &... More

Our stay at this hotel came about because our travel company changed hotels on us a week before we were due to depart, that is another story. We didn't arrive until 2am and the place was in darkness. There was 1 lad on reception who said Mr and Mrs ....... and gave us a key with directions to our room.... More

However other than that the hotel was poor anyway, pool was nice but it ends there. Most meals awful, entertainment irritating, some... More

Where to start, on arrival we were advised to go into lunch as our room wasn't ready, would have been nice to have been advised where the restaurant was, i use the term loosely, prison food would be probably more palatable. Not much choice & always cold. The floor needed a major clean, food always on it from the previous... More
