Tried the breakfast and dinner buffet's in this hotel. The breakfast has a nice range of cold food, e.g. sliced meats, cheeses, salad etc. Hot food is a bit more limited. It is nice that you can see the eggs,pancakes and bacon being freshly cooked in front of you but the scramble egg is to be avoided at all costs.... More

Stayed at the Las Gondolas Apartments with the half board option so breakfast and dinner were taken at the Sahara Playa. Very organised, mostly friendly staff and a fantastic variety of food catering for all tastes. The hotel's clientele appear to be mostly German so the food is tailored accordingly but there's plenty for us Brits to enjoy.

This hotel is really great, so close to the beach and to Kasbah too, where you can find so much bars and disco. The food is nice, and the staff also. The rooms are a little old, but everything is clean and you have so big space inside. I recommend this hotel!! I was here 2 times, and never disappointed!

Very impressed with the room - had 5 beds and I was there on my own! Quite clean, slight drain smell a couple times but not bad. One woman on reception spoke English, but the rest of the staff could only say a few words in English, except for Tania at the public bar - lovely girl - very friendly.... More

Excellent location near beach. However we did not benefit from the 3star status given to this hotel. We went for an all inclusive Xmas holiday. When we arrived the receptionist was on the telephone and did not acknowledge us with our cases standing at the desk. We hovered, looking at the board with details of that nights Gala Dinner (Xmas...
