Visited the Savita in April 2013 with my sister and my niece.
OK - dodgy bits first.
On arrival, we were rushed into the restaurant (which was closing) so that we could eat - didn't reckon much to the restaurant choice but we were tired and wanted to go to bed. We checked in and tried to confirm that our room had three beds (being three ladies) - we were told that it should have and to go and look. Only two beds. Rang reception and asked for another bed which was delivered and made up by our room boy. Went to bed, woke up next morning and looked out of the windows to a large patio (just beyond our balcony) and the most beautiful sea view. That night I slept on the "extra" bed (which was a Z bed) but I was very uncomfortable and had to ask for another matress (making my bed have two mattresses, as I explained to room service). Our room boy turned up with two boxes of matches so I put them on the bed but they didn't make any difference - hence started the hilarity around communication - I did get another mattress by-the-way. We only had one chair on our balcony so, for 3 days we tried to get another couple of chairs and a table - eventually these arrived (via our room boy) so we were happy for a few days. But, we were obviously the envy of our neighbours because the russians next door pinched our table - I soon got it back!!!!
In summary - food is pretty poor - entertainment is focussed mainly on Russians who seemed to overtake the hotel - they are very, very rude to other guests and the staff.
There is a lot of faded glory around the hotel but (now the good bits)......
The pool area is lovely and the terraces by the beach are great. There is a small walk on a floating "bridge"to the sea (which is deep) where the sea-life is teeming over the coral reef - beautiful. The sun beds are quite comfortable and beach towels are supplied by the hotel. The bars are great and the staff amazing (see Mohammed in the cocktail bar). We got them all making us lovely lattes and some mega cocktail concoctions.
The rooms are nice and spacious with plenty of storage (and great air conditioning). The hotel itself if huge and there are four sets of lifs (two on each side) on the beach side of the hotel. There are loads of shops around the main foyer with plenty of bars, a chinese and an italian restaurant (well worth a visit due to the restaurant food being quite yuch).
This is not a five star hotel as it stands at the moment - I would rate it at 3.5
However, we all three really enjoyed our holiday and did say that we might go back but they would have to improve their food and it wouldn't take much to ensure that each balcony had their own table/chairs!!
The service was exemplary at all levels.
