Beautiful hotel, everything is very close ☀️:) beach, city, shopping mall, restaurants. Room is spacious and every day perfectly cleaned . The food is very tasty, you don't have to be worry that you won’t find something for yourself. 🏝Hotel beach is amazing, clean sea, really good relax. Swimming pools are also good. I have nothing to complain about. I can’t forget the great team of animators who, despite the less number of guest, gave us the full atention, special because Nino and Seif we had really good time. Evenings shows were perfect 💃❤️ For sure we will come back.❤️

A 3 nights stay Let start with the reception staff members.. so slow so careless it took us almost 40 minutes to check out...the reception is fool of ants and flies. Rude staff member especially the buffet staff ( same food every single day/ a lot of veggies cooked in different ways and the meat and poultry are given with a "that's it for you" look No AC in the reception area or anywhere around the hotel except a slight breeze in the rooms..the hotel recently renovated is steaming hot!! Rooms are dirty the hallways are filthy. The swimming pool is another story..a horror one: The swimming pool engine is off all the time they only put it on during night time so all day people swim in each other's filth and you can actually see it (hair floating all over the place /band-aid /and oily surface..) disgusting ! The only good point: Good wifi connection all over the hotel.

Verry nice room. This is tidy. Staff friendly and helpful. The pool and beach bar was great. The animators were great, funny and i like the shows in night. They were not poisoned. The restaurant served excellent food. There was a lot to choose from. Meat, salads, fruits, vegetables, maburgers, pizza, everything one can think of. Water slides were played twice a day by the pool
