Just came back from 2 weeks holiday at Crown Plaza Sahara Sands. We had a nice room with sea view at the center of the hotel. Perfect location. The salt water lagune is nice and the whole hotel is beautiful maintained. The food can be better but was not bad. Most of the time is was not warm and every... More

Rooms were clean and maid service daily was excellent, staff were friendly and the hotel grounds were spotless, my main bugbear was going to dinner at half seven in the evening and not being able to find a table for 4, it is odd to think that it is acceptable for their guests to have to fight for a table...

This hotel do not deserve to be named Crowne Plaza. Actually surprised that IHG still accept this. We stayed there for two weeks end of July 2014. Hotel nearly full, flooded with Russians the first week and locals the second week (Holidays just after Ramadan). Design of the hotel and sizes of the rooms are fine, but too bad, cleaning... More

Very nice hotel .Our 2nd visit this time all inclusive.. Not as good as our first visit.found the restaurant a bit difficult being buffet style,people were rude and not willing to queue,which creates some rather unpleasant situations. Lovely reef 5 mins away where you can snorkel from jetty to jetty and see as much as you would on a dive.... More

One of the best things about that place was how amazing snorkeling was at their beach, the underwater view was unbelievable, I felt like I was swimming in an aquamarine. The staff was also very friendly and I loved the architecture of the place , however, I wasn't a big fan of their food, i guess it wasn't for my... More

Lovely resort, nice set up in a beautiful big garden. Right on the beach / sandy plateau. Good: Big room, good bed, big shower that fits 2, tv which works, mini fridge, aircon, good window cover (as the sun rises bright and early). Animation team and staff were very friendly. Restaurant set up was cosy and really restaurant like. Openings... More

Everything is very good and on high level: room (room service), food, swimming pools, beach, serive. Coral reef is beautiful, you can see the beautiful variety of fish and sometimes a sea turtle. But the big advantage of this hotel are animators: OKSANA, RICARDO, MONDY, MAGDALENA and MIDO. Without THESE people vacation in this hotel would not be interesting. They're... More
