We had two weeks at this hotel from late November, looking for sun, relaxation and a mixture of snorkelling and diving. The weather was perfect, hot during the day and cool in the evenings: pack a jersey! The rooms are very spacious and well appointed, but the build quality is suspect: shelves in our wardrobe fell down, and the basin was about to........ All the staff are brilliant, very friendly and helpful, and Ibrahim kept our room spotless and surprised us each day with wonderful towel art. The supervisor, Mohammed, managed to find time while doing his job, to teach us some Arabic and give us a wider appreciation of his country. Special thanks to them.
The hotel is isolated, but ideally located on a wonderful house reef which is easily accessed from the jetty and teeming with fish and corals. The prevailing northerly wind can generate strong surface currents, and when the red flag is flying you can take advantage of the huge, usually empty, heated pool. This occurred on 4 days out of 14. As well as the fantastic snorkelling on the house reef, we can recommend the dedicated snorkel boat trips run by Emperor Divers (on site) and we swam with both turtles and the dugong.
The food has attracted many adverse comments, but we found it be of good quality, and sufficient variety to suit us. It's not 5*, but an A la Carte Restaurant is being built. The wine is awful.
We did want a relaxing holiday, so peace and quiet are important to us, and the the perpetual loud music from the beach is annoying. The 'Adults Only' beach area provides some relief from the noise, but on windless days it was still invasive.
Overall we were very satisfied, had a lovely holiday, were made to feel very welcome by the staff, and hope to return.
