We returned from a 7 day stay at this hotel on the 12th January, a last minute booking. From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome and noticed how beautiful the environment was around the hotel. It was Three Kings Day (the local celebration of Christmas) so Christmas decorations made the hotel look even prettier.We stayed in a first floor Villa Suite (5028)overlooking palm trees and banana trees in the gardens, it was beautiful with a balcony that felt quite private and had plenty of sun most of the day. The suite comprised of a good sized bedroom, small living room area with sofa and chair, coffee table, tv and a small entrance lobby with a fridge. If you like a cuppa it's best to take a travel kettle as that's not supplied. Also the hairdryer was fixed on the bathroom wall and not very efficient so take your travel drier (I forgot mine which was a pain). The suite was cleaned 'thoroughly' everyday (would have preferred fluffier towels to be picky!). Plenty of sunbeds around the two pools, towels were provided. The pool area was hosed every evening, everywhere looked very clean. Swimming pool was cold in January but once we'd plucked up courage to duck under the water we got used to it and enjoyed it. The dining arrangement in two sittings, one at 6pm and one at 8pm seemed to work well. We were able to change the time we had dinner as long as the head waiter is informed the day before. We didn't feel any rush to get us out when we ate at 6pm and didn't see food disappearing! I just want to say that the Head Waiters, namely Phillippe and Said couldn't have been more obliging, as I have a special diet and they couldn't do enough to make sure my requirements were met. The food there is a very high quality, with show cooking of roast meats, fish etc as well as a good choice of desserts including flambe (very generous with the splash of brandy!). There is an a la carte restaurant too, but the buffet was too good to miss.The hotel is in a very pleasing location, with a long promenade for a good walk, which is accessed through a gate at the garden end. To the left are a supermarket, restaurants, cafes,shops and eventually the famous Dunes. It was a cool temperature first thing in the morning and in the evening so at this time of the year have a jacket or cardi handy, you'll be glad of it. We can't wait to go back to this lovely hotel to be pampered again, highly recommend it.
