We booked this hotel with a few concerns....but I need not have worried, The hotel, whilst in a little need of some tlc, was comfortable, exceptionally clean and excellent value for money. We went as a group and stayed for 3 weeks which proved to be the most enjoyable holiday we have ever had. The staff cannot be faulted, they were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them. The banter was good fun with all staff, cleaners, gardeners and so on were all polite with an excellent sense of humour and English a lot better than my arabic. Some reviews have moaned about the food, but I have come to the conclusion they did not stay at the same hotel. The majority of food is cooked fresh in front of you. Each night you had a choice of Pasta with different sauces to chose from, fish, meat including steaks to die for, vegetarian options, salad, soup as well as vegetables, rice, 2 different types of potatoes and so on. The desserts were absolutely beautiful with a huge variety. On our wedding anniversary one of the chefs, Matteo, made us the most beautiful cake and all the restaurant staff came out and sanf to us, it was really moving how much trouble they went to for us and it was much appreciated. The hotel manager Mohab and his boxer dog Rad, were very accomodating and took any comments guests made seriously and acted on them, to the point that one of our party moaned that ice cream was not included with all inclusive for adults, so Mohab sent one of his staff to the shop and bought our whole group ice creams which was far in excess of what I would have expected. The only moan I could write about, is the hassle the massage people give you as they would not take no for an answer and kept on trying to sell a massage to you. The beach was not my cup of tea as it was not very appealing, however saying that, if you are into snorkeling (which I am not), my husband said it was one of the best he has been too for the variety and amount of fish.
Our thanks and respect for both Saed's, Akram, Mohammed (restaurant manager), Mina, Josef and Mohab, this was the best holiday we have ever had because of you all. Mohab your staff are a credit to you.
