We went for our honeymoon in June- the apartment is lovely- yet sadly lacks ALL amnemities! No hair dryer, no spoons, no kettle, no plates , no glasses! NOTHING!
so although you get a fridge and a wonderful living space- any crockery needed to be borrowed from the kitchen- and it is a kitchen with a terrace, not a restaurant
- there were no menus, no prices available to view and if you did want your evening meal there (there is nothing in walking distance) then you had to give 4 HOURS notice in advance of what you wanted.
No alcohol - yet they would open your wine etc at the table if you asked and lend you a corkscrew which we found out after asking on day two.
I wouldnt agree with the family theme as if we had taken the girls they would have been bored senseless- as was the hubby as he doesn't read that much and there was nothing else to do- yes, it's touristy of us yet a table tennis table, a libary, or something would of helped.
It's very peaceful and the grounds are beautiful, clean and you do get sahampoo and body wash and clean sheets-
taxis were not taxis- they were Mehdi's pals and the price was always the same despite where you went, with no real arrangements made for picking up etc - yet I must admit they did come and find us at the supermarket when it was time to head back.
The most disappointing thing for us was the breakfast- on offer was 3 x different types of pancake, jam, honey or cheese spread- tea, coffee or oj.
THERE WAS NO FRUIT, NOTHING ELSE ON OFFER, EACH DAY WAS THE SAME OFFERING DIFFERENT WAYS- CARBS AND SUGAR. THAT WAS IT , NO HAMS , CHEESES, FRUITS OR DIFFERING JUICES. So stock up in your room - although dont forget you have no utensils , no cooker etc and anything you want has to be ordered well well in advance.
Overall dsiappointing and I do not feel the reviews I read gave a true insight in to the service you received.
Peaceful and clean- yet avaoid if you like to take a walk, grab a beer, play a game etc.
