The reception salon opening to the garden and infused with a beautiful rose scent is the first thing you see. Check in is part of the charm....no queue; but mint tea served with a smile, and your details for registration presented in a folder to complete at leisure.
The only caveat is to beware of the ground floor bedroom with patio surrounded by thicket and no view. If you check in at night time you may not notice unless you inspect! It's also bang on top of the poolside cafe and adjacent to the garbage! Having refused this room immediately we then were given another room on fourth floor with superb views of pool.
Rooms are good and the bed is the type that you sink onto with a feeling of floating but also has a firm mattress; all down to a thin feather mattress cover (which I am currently tracking down as was so comfortable).
Breakfast had groaning tables of help yourself fresh fruit, cold meats, fresh pastries and a hot counter for your choice of eggs. An experience in itself and really no need for anything else to eat at lunchtime.....but then holidays are for indulging so why go without?
Poolside lunch can be served on your large circular bed lounger so no need to move!
Two pools, and one heated for winter swimming.
Hotel is situated in residential area within Easy walking to the souks (about 15 mins stroll).
Altogether to be recommended.
