I was asked by my Company to test this hotel out (having used the Beach Rotana for all our Clients and staff). Unfortunately the hotel decided to allocate me a room next to the night club which played loud thumping music until 02:45am (even after I complained three times and they were supposed to turn music off at 02:30am)
The reception could not move my room as the hotel was apparently full. My room wasn't even the nearest to the nightclub so I feel very sorry for the people who were!
So after a sleepless start to the night (I was out in AD working) I finally got to sleep after seeing the clock turn 4am - only to be woken up by the drains in the bathroom making horrendous gurgling noises as the person in the room above was using the shower.
I could not believe the noise - actually sounded as if they were in my bathroom!! Then whenever they flushed the toilet or used the tap I could hear all their water gurgling back up the drains in my room. The noise was unbearable.
Needless to say they have lost our business and I checked out in the morning. The reception manager was friendly enough but seriously, for a new hotel why have so many rooms right next to the club? It advertises itself as a business hotel - what a joke when you cannot relax or sleep.
Also, the layout is very weird - the rooms are a walk outside away from reception and there is no comfortable lounge or lobby. It seemed a rather unfriendly place with copious amounts of security guards (which makes me wonder why).
