We went for a week to this hotel and it is the first time we have gone all inclusive. What a joy. The hotel was kept beautifully clean and tidy. All areas were constantly being cleaned including the beach and pool areas. The rooms are spacious and the cleaner takes time and effort to make you feel at home.
The staff at the hotel from gardener to manager are very polite and friendly. They always say hello when they are passing and always have a smile on their faces. The Thomson rep Kirk was great he was very helpful and always seemed to be around when you needed him.
The food was excellent. I am a very fussy eater and it didn't matter one bit because I was always able to find something to my liking and plenty of it. The waiters are very good at topping up your glasses but without being in the way.
The fridge in the room has water and coke in it and their is a bottle of wine and fruit there on the day of arrival. If you want more water, coke, teabags, milk etc. just ask the bar staff and top up every day.
The only negative thing about the holiday was that I was not able to get my drink - bicardi. As it is a muslim country they do not have alcohol the same strength as ours and often they do not have international drinks because of the very high tax they have to pay on them. Fortunately I took a bottle of bicardi with me and I just added it to my coke. The hotel did not seem to mind this so if you want UK drinks you might be better to buy some at the duty free on the way out.
It is a couples hotel and I must say my husband and I enjoyed this aspect of it as it gave us peace and quiet to relax and enjoy the stay.
We would certainly go back.
