We have just come back from a weekend at JAL - We got a really good deal, because its summer and we booked well in advance (having booked through another website - directrooms.com). This is our second time here, the first time last year June, was just as memorable.
We were only here for one night, and arriving at lunchtime check in was a breeze. Our friends were upgraded and so would be on a separate side of the resort to us, so we asked to be upgraded so our party would stay together. We were told that they only had single beds available on that side, but could push the beds together and give us a king duvet. as it was only one night we agreed, but wouldn't recommend this for couples because there is still quite a large sizable gap.
Our friends asked to move their room because it had a very strong smokey smell, and this too was done very quickly, and without hassle.
After a quick check-in, we donned our costumes and went down to the bigger pool (the family pool with a bar in the pool, where you can sit and drink) This bar is not nearly as nice or big as the Rotana down the way, but the cocktails were great and the prices are very very reasonable for the drinks and bar food (especially compared to all the other hotels in the area)
After a full day of drinking cocktails at the pool, we went to our rooms to get ready for dinner. One of the things I love about JAL is their bathrooms, there are shutters over the bath that allows you to open onto the room, so you can take a bath and still chat with your partner.
Dinner was at marco polo, and we tried the Spring Rolls, Pad Thai, and Lamb roganjosh (bit of a mixture) The lamb and was amazing, a very rich, decadent curry, with a very reasonable price. the pad Thai, I have had much better and I found it very dry. The food here on a whole is pretty good for that you pay... Breakfast was typical buffet style, with a wide range to choose from, but no pork.
I would recommend though, if you are staying for a few nights to go for dinner at the Indian Restaurant at Le Meridian, Al Aqua, a short drive down the road. The food there, while pricey is out of this world!
After checking out we were able to spend the rest of the day here. We spent the second day at the much quieter smaller pool, which is great if you want to get away from the noise and families. I found the beach too hot to lie on, but there were these great sun-lounger/couches which we used last time that people had placed their towels on in the early morning, and I didn't see sitting on once the entire day!
