“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

I am going to try and keep this review short as this is such a good destination and hotel for a relaxing break that part of me wants to keep it a secret. However , this hotel and the service from all the staff really deserve recognition . We have been to this hotel twice now both times in December and had an excellent experience. The hotel is spotless and staff are friendly and attentive and work very hard to ensure you have a good holiday . In regards to food the selection and quality is good and the Chefs are present in the restaurant and ensure that everything meets your personal needs and will go out of their way to meet dietary needs. They also make lovely chocolates. The hotel is set back from a bay and is short walk from the hotel, snorkelling is good . For those who like a lively night life this is not the place for you as entertainment is centred around the hotel. We plan to go back again this year and cannot wait.

Totally agree with comments of Moscowgaff.Nothing too much trouble for the staff and management, especially Youseff the front of house assistant manager. Waleed and Hassan at the bar were two of the most attentive and friendly barstaff giving an excellent service. This does not take away from the rest of the staff who provided an excellent standard of service and friendliness. Hotel spotlessly clean. Would recommend this hotel to any who wants snorkelling or pure relaxation with sunshine thrown in.

Room Tip: Stayed in 605 overlooking pool never got direct sunshine which could be a bonus in the height of the...

Lovely hotel which is kept spotlessly clean eveywhere. Friendly, smiling attentive staff throughout the hotel.
Mahmood provided us with different towel sculptures daily, all the restaurent staff remembered our tea/coffee and drinks orders. Hassan and Waleed on the bars made delicious non alcoholic and alcoholic cocktails.
Youssef, the manager, responded to comments, requests and suggestions promptly to ensure that all your needs were catered for.
We enjoyed fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs or omlettes for breakfast. There is a pasta station every lunch and dinner time in the restaurent in addition to 4 or 5 hot dishes. Food is also available from the restaurent's outdoor grill each evening - kebab, burger, chicken, fish etc. We always found something to our taste
You will be amazed at the sealife you can see just by walking out into the sea or gazing over the side of the jetty. The sea is warm even at this time of year and the corals, fish and sea life we saw when snorkelling was fantastic.
We had a wonderful holiday and would certainly revisit this hotel

Room Tip: Rooms at rear have sunny balcony in the afternoon, which is nice in winter, but have view of waterpa...

Have just spent Christmas and New Year here. What an amazing time. THis hotel is fantastic the staff are friendly and could not do enough for you. They remember everything. The food was very good and plenty of choice even for the most pickest of any family. Christmas Eve and New Years eve were absolutely great with a Gala dinner on both nights.

He was freindly and polite and nothing was to much trouble.WELL DONE!!! The animation team were entertaining and great fun.Would definately return

We have just returned from spending Christmas and New Year at the Dar El Madina, and we had a fabulous time. This was our first Christmas away from England, and did not know what to expect as far as the weather was concerned.But not a problem, it was perfect. We have been going to the hotel since it opened, and have just had our 6th stay,and we will be back in November.The Management and Staff are fabulous and cannot do enough for you, if you have a problem you only have to ask.( We have never had one).The Gala dinners display was incredible to see, in fact the food looked to good to eat. The Chefs and their staff did a marvelous job.We met people on thier first trip to the Hotel, and are going back again. So that is the best recommendation you can get,WHY not try it for yourself'
