this is the first review i have made on this website, i was interested to look this hotel up to see if anyone experienced what we experienced when we stayed there and i am shocked to find that there are so few write ups. I can not describe to you how utterly horrendous this place is from start to finish. i would not pay 50 pounds a night to stay in this dump - the place is falling apart literally at the seams. It was obviously good in its hey day and its trying to survive on its old reputation, no money has been put into the hotel since the first day it opened and that is blatently obvious when you walk around the hotel.
first of all we stayed in one of the tents - its so dark and dingy, old linnen, not very clean, the tent is a plastic marquee.. very tacky certainly not luxurious. we overlooked the tennis court which was a joke!!! we attempted to play having borrowed two rackets with strings missing on a court that was of similar surface to a loose gravel road!!! suffice to say we gave up after two minutes. the pool area looked nice in the photos but seriously shabby and as for the food, i dont even know where to begin. the first night we had dinner in a very bizarre dining room!! and i ordered prawns.. it was so spicy and i eat very spicy food that i had to run out and choke outside.. i thought i was going to die.. we called over the waiter and explained and he laughed and said i think the chef made mistake!!!! the main course was a tagine and no joke of a lie it was probably the most disgusting thing i ever ate. breakfast in the morning, i ordered fruit and i was given canned fruit in syrup!!!! i then ordered some brown bread and they gave me plastic bimbo bread, at this point i burst into tears. my husband went to see the manager and had some seriously stern words, of which we were told a series of lies that there is a french chef he is on holiday and we have the local chef... we didnt stay for lunch and that night the hotel asked us to stay for a complimentary dinner so that the chef could shine!!! well shine he did not... it was yet again inedible and the worst food i have ever eaten... we complained to the manager again and he said that he would give us a free cooking class - i had to laugh hysterically because it just summed the place up why an earth would i want a cooking lesson from the worst chef i have ever come across. to sum it up we spent a night in the dessert in a tent where the chef cooked us a chicken tagine which was a thousand times more delicious then anything that the chef in this resort could ever cook. i beg you please dont ever subject yourself to somewhere such as this you will be so devastated to have spent this amount of money on a faulty towers hotel!!!
