Stayed 1 night in this classy resort billed as 5 star. Wonderful setting with nice architecture and a range of pools, bars, restaurants etc leading down to Dead Sea beach.
Nice welcome at reception by Bashar who looked after my needs for thestay - I really appreciated e late checkout and the changing room locker so I could shower before leaving.
Room was spacious but very dark with almost no natural light. Bed super comfy with all the nice fluffy pillows. Bathroom spacious and wonderful deep tub to relax in. Philippino household staff friendly and helpful. The so-called free mini bar was somewhat disappointing with one very small container of chips for 2 people - very stingy for the high price of the room.
The pool areas were very nice but marred by the constant thud of music from the Akkad cafe and the srcreaming of too many unrestrained children.
Breakfast buffet was OK but nothing out of the ordinary - be prepared for lots of family groups and large numbers of People all trying to get to the food - quite noisy and chaotic. I would really recommend a separate area for families due to the noise.
An enjoyable stay but perhaps not quite worth the price.
