The choice was amazing and the service was impeccable. There were gluten-free options too. The "banana gratin" pudding was awesome... and devilishly tempting, as were... More

Prime location - no doubt, excellent built environment except for landscaping that calls for an extra boost. Beach is beautiful. Crows are a big bother, though!! Food not exceptional except at the laguna club house - where service and food quality etc were amazing.

The hotel is nice, but they have a very bad and rude staff, In the front desk we met a very rude staff called Mahrous he needs to be kicked off from the hotel. they should give them courses how to treat customers. We stayed 3 nights and it's more then enough.
