“Down the drain”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

I visited Janna in 2006 and it seems it has not been maintained properly since then. Some parts if it are practically run down and the beach is a garbage dump. Management is obviously incompetent and it shows with their policies. The main pool is still acceptable.

My family and I were amazed by the tropical setting at Janna. We enjoyed our small pool and we have participated in all activities like soccer, Jet Sky,....
The food was above average and the service was excellent. I am looking forward to go there next year,,,

I stayed there with my kids. Love it. excellent atmosphere. I relaxed while kids had so much to do. We will surely go there next summer too. It is a quality resort. A small tip, whatever you are doing, drop it during sunset. It is a memrable scene ever

Room Tip: we stayed at the room with small private pool infront of it. loved it

Found a deal on Makshoom and got this place for one night at $300 (instead of the normal $600) in a bungalow on the Mediterranean. The grounds were amazing but that's where it ended. There was not help getting into our bungalow, we had to request towels 8 times, our dinner and breakfast were included but it was over cooked and not appealing. I recommend staying here if you can get a night for $100 or less. The bungalows are nice and cozy but don't expect ANY service.

Room Tip: They have two types of bungalows... those with and without private pools. I recommend a second floor...
