My Sister and I stayed here for 4 nights (business & holiday) and picked the hotel primarily because of the location, right in the heart of the JBR, loads of cafe's & restaurants right on the door step, within easy reach of the marina, about 25/30 mins from the airport. Simon the Italian receptionist was very welcoming, but the whole place looks very dated (with the exception of BICE Italian restaurant & some of the bars) Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the street, which was nice as you could sit on the balcony and watch the world go by, but the interior of the room was very dated, it was a late 80's / early 90's time warp of pastels, the whole room had seen better days. The bathrooms are small and you take your life in your own hands getting in and out of the very high bath (no slip mats). The rooms are cleaned to a very good standard every day but they really do need to bring the decor up to the same standard as other hotels in the area. If you are coming here to lay in the sun, be warned that the pool is very small & gets extremely busy, not enough sunbeds, also the sun bed thief's get up very early here & annoyingly spend only about 2 hours by the pool all day. Some of the guests do not put up with this and will discard towels which caused several arguments between guests whilst we were here, also be warned we paid 22 dirhams for a large bottle of water by collecting it ourselves from the bar, then asked a waiter to bring us 2 small bottles and were charged 36. BICE restaurant is fabulous, we would thoroughly recommend that you sample this Italian menu, lunch with a bottle of wine for 2 approx £150 - the interior decor of the restaurant is very modern & sleek, such a shame that the rest of the hotel isnt. They also have a BICE sky lounge bar (not very well advertised or signposted from the lobby) but sundown drinks here are spectacular.
The one thing that seriously let the hotel down was the breakfast buffet, this was a complete disaster, luke warm fairly unappetizing food, we had to ask 5 times for coffee, 3 times for orange juice, twice for a spoon, the staff were uninterested and running round like headless chickens, its was so unorganized it was hilarious.
All in all, not a bad hotel, needs modernising, needs another pool area to cope with demand, but in terms of location - excellent, reception & cleaning staff were very helpful, friendly.
