Stayed at this hotel 3rd-10th April, myself and my wife in one room 2 daughters 21&24 next door room 1st floor as requested via email 25mins from airport, given a very fruity cold drink on arrival, cases delivered to the room
Weather was mixed all week chilly when the sun did not shine ( 2 days ) on one cloudy day booked a trip to the soucks with Thomson rep about £13 changed money at Reception later found out exchange rate was slightly higher outside, barter well in the soucks you can roughly half the first price your offered, glad we all went on the 4hour tour as it was guided through the market streets and allies I am quite good at finding my out of anywhere but this place is a challenge, the next day we all returned to do our shopping on the hotel shuttle bus
Food- great enjoyed everything tried new dishes and all the favourites such as fresh pizza French fries hamburger plenty of different chicken dishes.
Every night you could find something different. And lunch time at the pool restaurant had a good variety with some very good cakes and pastries.
Drinks- very good selection of cocktails just ask if you want something making up, also if you want extra alcohol, beer on tap good, coffee not great in the main restaurant found it better out of the self serve machine, the lounge barmen made great lattés
Rooms- cleaned every day good standard, towel art on the bed every day, toiletries re stocked, fridge in room free safe, one large bottle of water every day .
We used the indoor pool several times found the water temp just right, as said by other guests the outdoor pool was freezing although my wife braved it one day , pool area very well laid out plenty of sun beds although the usual early morning towels on if you want a certain spot, liked the idea of chill out areas with mattresses and pillows, if it got too hot the pool guys would provide a canopy,
Last but not least just wanted to mention the great music the two lads played in the lounge bar every night and the service provided from the bar staff , also good to see managers in the restaurant. Had a great week although the weather was changeable
