This adults only hotel is excellent, and may be even better when it is finished and all the construction work disappears. The Spa was still not open during our visit in April. It was so peaceful around the pool during the day, no screaming kids or running and splashing. We did vennture to the sister hotels ( Palace and Grand ) for a reminder of the noise, but soon returned to the tranquility of the Spa.
Our only real problem with the hotel, and with many other guests we spoke to, was the fact they had changed the Lobby bar into an extra charge bar, where you had to pay for all drinks. When you pay extra for All Inclusive, and then extra again for Adults only, you should not then have to pay even more just for a drink. Most nights, the bar was empty, and very few people actually used it, so that should tell the manager something.
The food was excellent, whether in the World buffet, or one of the speciality restaurants, for which you had to book each day. Previous comments about the plates being cold, was not really a problem, unless you piled your plate up so much. We ate in the buffet most evenings during our 2 week stay, and was never short of something to try, from the fresh pasta, Turkish area, Chinese area, Sushi and curries. there was always a joint of meat or chicken/duck to choose, if you didn't want the steak or fish.
The room was excellent, from the very large bed, to the balcony. The glass window between the bath/shower room and the bedroom was a little strange, and could be a little risque, especially as the rooms officially sleep 3??? Rooms were cleaned to a very high standard every day, and the towel boy came around at 7pm to deliver the next days towels.
Overall, we had an excellent two weeks, the sun was hot but the breeze kept the temperatures down. The sea was a mere 20 yards outside the doorway, which has a member of staff on duty at all times to stop guests from other hotels from entering ( especially ones with kids ). The coral was quite difficult to walk on and you definately need water shoes, but the sea was so blue it was amazing.
