Just got back yesterday from the Fort Arabesque Hotel and it definitely lived up to expectations. The hotel is stylish and modern with massive, clean rooms and beautiful views and gardens.
The staff are helpful and friendly and always try to have a laugh with the guests. Food is all inclusive buffet as well as an A La Carte restaurant on the beach. There was a massive selection of food all of which was delicious and a weekly BBQ outside by the pool area.
At the moment one of the pools is closed due to refurbishment but there are plenty others to choose from including the pool bar as well as the beach. You will see the most amazing fish in the crystal clear waters!
The only downside about this resort was the animation team. I found them irritating and a nuisance as they kept running up and down the resort including at meal times in fancy dress shouting and bothering you. Also all the entertainment is in Italian so pretty useless for everyone else.
Apart from that small snag the resort is absolutely amazing and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break away.
