The hotel has a beautiful decor throughout. Our room was overlooking one of the swimming pools at the front with the Grand Mosque across the creek. The room size was fine with a lovely large bathroom and good sized balcony too. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was my husbands birthday and they really made his day with the staff singing Happy Birthday with a lovely little chocolate cake. They even took a photo and popped it into a frame, put some flowers in the room and decorated the bed with swans made out of towels and flower petals. We ate in all the restaurants apart from Pearls and Caviar and enjoyed each one especially Bord Eau and Hoi An. The breakfast choice was excellent but felt that the hot buffet food wasn't hot enough. We stayed for 7 nights and I feel this was enough, it's definitely not a paradise island. As mentioned in other reviews there is aircraft noise and the jet skis appear in the afternoon and they are annoying. Overall though we had a very enjoyable stay, enjoying some winter sunshine to a place that's convenient for us to travel to.
