Tarik Hotel is clean, comfortable and generally high standards of excellence. Rooms cleaned everyday and have private balcony not overlooked when sitting. Lovely maintained pool area with the only noise was the little finches birds tweeting around palm trees. Breakfast buffet was ok and coffee machines were excellent. We had breakfast elsewhere on number of occasions
We had a few negatives that I hope management would take as constructive criticism and rectify. Firstly we booked a double bed room with a sea view back in January of this year. On the day before arriving I emailed the manager of our requirements again as we were eagerly looking forward to Sea view room. On arrival we were told our room was ready and told by receptionists that ”is a very good room” .Room 212 is on first floor looking on to the flat roof of restaurant below and out to sea with your back to the pool. We were very disappointed and would not recommend this room if you had paid the higher price. Two hours later we moved to a room on 3rd floor after consulting with receptionist and the expressionless man .We were very happy with this room even though it had 2 twin beds instead of a double as ordered.
Power showers have a plentiful supply of hot water, but be aware when shutting off the water that it is the hot tap you turn first as the knobs are at bath level and like me you can mistakenly turn cold off first and you will not need to sunbath that day.
When a hotel says satellelite TV you assume that everybody is catered. Their was 40 TV channels with 3 English speaking News channels (BBC world,Bloomberg,CNCB)and they just repeated same news over and over and over and over again. Lots of English programmes but dubbed in Spanish and German. Either put some English channels on or on Hotel facilities website says Satellite TV (we do not cater for English speaking guests) and give the guests a refund for misleading them.
I read in an earlier review about sun beds been old and was conscience of this when using them. First day we were fine but the following day my back hurt on the older metal framed sun bed. After examining I found some of the metal framed beds are tightened underneath and depending who has been lying on them the cords loosen and your back is hitting on the metal crosspiece underneath. Weekly review of older metal beds and tightened when required because they are very uncomfortable and not all guests will complain to staff but will tell other guests and friends about facilities at hotel. Hope the negatives can be resolved to make your guests happier.
We enjoyed our holiday at this hotel because it has high standards, pleasant and happy staff except for expressionless man on reception. Good standards of cleanliness, location, peaceful at night and nice pool area. Will recommend to other people but hope TV issue is resolved by then.
