We stayed in a Grand Deluxe Seaview room on the 6th floor. Our room was great, it had all we needed including a Samsung flat screen TV and DVD player.
The pools in the hotel are fantastic, just the right temperature and you can always get a lounge to sit on. It is a great place for couples and for families with children.
We had no problems with the call to prayer waking us as some other travellers have mentioned. I would agree that the jet skis can get a little annoying after a while, but not enough that it would stop me from staying here (you can't really hear them when you are by the pool, only when sitting out on your balcony).
The location of the hotel is great, the market starts right out the front, it is across the road from a money changer and convenience store and is close to restaurants.
We didn't eat or drink in the hotel, as many others have said it is very expensive and quite a shame that they don't put prices down. I am sure that people would choose to eat lunch and have drinks if they reduced their prices.
All in all I would highly recommend this hotel, we will definetley be coming back!
