Dar al Masyaf 2013- summer sensations deal

Just been looking into re-booking our 2013 holiday to the Dar Al Masyaf as had a superb stay in both 2011 & this year to be told by our tour operators here in the UK that next year Jumeriah will be restricting the number of restaurants on the Summer half board deal to just 10. Has anyone else heard of this? As prices have significantly risen for 2013 to be told we won't be able to dine in our favourite restaurants eg Segretto, Go West & Centimetro is worrying. With 4 Jumeriah hotels all offering the half board package how will guests get bookings if just 10 restaurants are available? Look forward to some clarification before I book please Jumeriah.

The half board offer in previous years has spoiled us regular clients of JBH and Madinet. The hotel restaurants being linked by buggy and waterways was lovely, especially for those of us with families who did not want to leave the complex.

Not sure how the travel agents in England know which restaurants are to be included in the HB offer yet, but hey ho.

I would imagine that reducing the number of restaurants to 10 would mean that all guests must make a booking for the restaurant of their choice, whether they are staying in that hotel or not. Not just able to turn up( at say a JBH one) - even if you are staying there and expecting a table. Maybe many will think this is not right. We are Ok with this and always book for the evening, now this dine around scheme is so popular.

If not being able to dine in Segretto etc puts you off booking at Madinet, then so be it. I think their half board option is second to none- but then only stayed in Jumeriah prpperties, so not a balanced opinion!
