We have just returned from a week at Sentido Reef Oasis Senses Resort. This was the furthest we have travelled with our 2 boys (7 & 5 yrs) to date and can call it a success!
We opted for the 2 bedroom superior family room, for a little privacy and this worked perfectly. The air con was a little on the noisy side, but I always pack earplugs so not a big problem. The rooms were cleaned every day and immaculate.
Food was good. A huge variety of choice for us and the kids in the buffet restaurants, but maybe more quantity than top quality. We didn't go hungry though! Our preference was the a la carte Patio restaurant, where you could order a meal of your choice (excellent food), but this was not available in the evening. The views from the beach Grill restaurant were stunning! service great.
The choice of pools was fantastic! we couldn't understand why everyone was crowded around the infinity pools by the lobby - when you could go to 10 other pools and have the pick of the sun loungers! Our favourite was Rama Pool as it had a graduated sloping entrance easy for the kids, good service and next to the kids club. A huge thanks to Omar (Recreation) and Mohamed (bar) at The Rama Pool for making us feel so welcome and giving us a fantastic service throughout the week.
Kids club was basic, but the children still really enjoyed it. Table footy, ping-pong, own pool, games etc. It gave us a nice 2 hr break every day and time out for kids from the sun.
If you are keen on snorkelling you can't go wrong with this hotel. The house reef was stunning. It was the perfect way to introduce the children to our water world. We did take our own buoyancy jackets / masks / snorkels to save on hire costs.
The beach was sandy and sea was shallow for children to stand in quite a way from shore. Bit rubbly due to coral bits/rocks, so take water shoes. You can walk to the beach from reception in about 10 mins, but the frequent shuttle was a godsend in the heat.
The splash park was AMAZING! the kids loved it. Split into two clear areas: 1. more gentle with climbing, sprays, chutes, jets and mini slides 2. Mega big slides for the brave! something for everyone and surprisingly not busy at all.
Bar service was good. We tended to go to the Piano bar in the evening as had wi-fi for kids. Thanks to Mohamed Asaad Salem in the Lobby Bar.
The only thing we thought was missing was decent family/kids evening entertainment. The disco was rubbish and mostly Italian. As a regular to First Choice hols we are used to full on entertainment interactive games and shows. lacking at this hotel.
