The hotel seemed unseasonably quiet for the holiday season, but you do get the feeling that's going to change. The hotel and the facilities are excellent. The spa is super and averse as I am to using them even I tried and thoroughly enjoyed being 'fixed'! The buffet at the Abyad was varied enough for the whole family. Having chef there in the evening to cook on demand made the difference and the food was excellent! The breakfast though was fantastic. From pastries to omelettes and everything in between.
Falesia beach is easily accessed by a well set out walkway and some wooden steps. But to be honest, the pools were perfect - dragging the kids away was impossible, so why fight it! Little Stars (kids club) was quiet but loads of activities to keep the kids occupied. We needed this holiday as a family and we were not at all disappointed.
The biggest factor though, the people, every single person there were a pleasure to meet and talk to. But more importantly they all engaged with the kids which meant they were settled and enjoyed themselves. Happy kids, happy parents!
I would have no problem recommending it to anyone, it just seems a bit quiet at the minute, if it's your thing, it was ours, then that's not a bad thing so enjoy it while it lasts!
