Value for money hotel.
Our hotel room was one of the refurbished ones and was great with a lovely view of the gardens and a sea glimpse beyond!
The bed was extremely comfortable, with beautiful linen, which was changed 4 times during the week.
The room was serviced daily and kept very clean.
Towels were changed daily but were not good quality and I presume that they were originally white but are now faded and jaded.
The food was fine with plenty of choice but was not always hot (I found the microwave in the restaurant was a boon for this though!) However, if you are expecting english cuisine, this is not the place for you.
The waiters are attentive and willing to please.
The bar is badly organised, often resulting in queues, even though we were there out of season and the hotel was pretty quiet.
There was usually only one bar staff serving drinks - alcoholic, soft drinks and tea and coffee.
Orders for tea and coffee were time consuming for the bar staff to prepare, resulting in a queue forming.
The bar regularly ran out of long mixer glasses, even though it was out of season and the hotel was quiet, resulting in drinks being served in small plastic cups.
Ice was always either in short supply or non existent.
We found the draught mixer drinks were extremely sweet and undrinkable so we bought our own from the nearby shop to have with the all inclusive vodka, which we didn't mind.
The animation team worked hard and tried to involve everyone in the activities but didn't push it if you declined.
Their evening shows were entertaining and welcome, as there was no entertainment to speak of outside of the hotel.
We didn't use it but the indoor pool and fitness centre looked great.
We had a look at the Marhaba Beach and Marhaba Club grounds, pool area and reception and thought that Marhaba was the best out of the 3.
We met several people who had returned to the Marhaba hotel several times, which speaks for itself.
We wanted a good value, relaxing week in the sun to escape the UK winter weather and that is exactly what we got and we would have no hesitation in returning for the same in the future.
