over a thousand guests in the hotel but no more that 10 English guests whilst we were there in June 2014.
This hotel is predominately geared up for the Russians,but this didn't affect how we were treated. The room itself was clean and tidy but in definite need of an update (especially the bathroom)
Food was ok , we stayed for 10 days. We would encourage you to book in to the restaurants on site as they were lovely, the Mexican, Italian especially.
Bar staff were great & very friendly , shout outs for : Alaa, Androu, & Ragem ( not sure thats spelt right lol ) :) Rabi from the diving centre was great & very friendly. Ahmed from the boat trips was also a very cool guy.
We had our breakfast at he fish restaurant as it was quieter & more European visitors go there. The staff here were fantastic.
For what we paid it was worth the money & we would go again Holiday was definitely enhanced by the people we met Ronnie & Sue from Southend.
Now my moan!!!! The price for the Visa is £15 !! but as we found depending on which window you pay at this price varies, we were charged £19 & others paid up to £25 each. So make sure you tale more English money than you need
