I just can not believe that this is possible , completly dirty Hotel extreme agressive & unfriendly staff, non existing service thiefs and drug selling employees
Never ever again , I still have the smell of the carpets in my mind , my room was cleaned 2
In 6 days , Reception staff screaming to their guests , travel agents humilating their guests
It all seemed to me like a bad dream

Just got back and didn't really enjoy.

It was supposed to be AI and it does say only local drinks which is fair enough, but there is so much that isn't - fruit juice for one, some entertainment you have to pay for too - the beach party was supposed to be free and wasn't, I got turned away from watching belly dancing on one of the hotel terrace's "it's a pay event" I was told quite rudly! A lot of people are always trying to get money from you both offically and unoffically.

The place is filled with Russians (a bad place for a lone brit! - no one to talk to), there were only 3 groups of Brits.

The food was pretty bad, it all looked the same and was never hot - just warmed through, a really good place for bugs to hang out and most people I spoke with got ill.
Breakfast was the best meal as the bread was really nice with honey or jam and they cooked you a fresh omelet on request.

The beach was OK but if your into snorkling this isn't the place - the coral is right on the beach and is being slowly killed off and because there are a lot of people about the visibility is poor.

If you want good service any where in the complex you have to tip up front and keep tipping - a real drag.

On a positive note a lot of the staff were nice and friendly and the rooms were nice and comfortable.
