Me and my partner went to the Savoy from the 5th-16th July 2010 and the minute we arrived at this hotel was pure luxury. We absolutely loved this hotel and would recommend anyone who wanting a relaxing and stress free holiday.
The reception was welcoming. The room we stayed in (1015) had a pool view with a slight sea view which was heavenly! The rooms were cool and modern with WIFI working, TV with many movies and sports in English to choice from. The Mini Bar was free and we had a safe for personal belongings.
If I could recommend to anyone staying at this hotel please go all inclusive (S-Class) as you do get your monies worth with the choice of 8 restaurants and free drinks/cocktails/beer and long drinks of your choice. Many people we spoke to who did not go all inclusive did find this expensive. Please pay the little extra - it is worth it.
The choice in food was out of the world with fresh sea food every day, 8oz steaks, Thai, Indian, Middle East, Italian, fresh pizza and your normal everyday food at the pool bar like club sandwiches, ice creams etc.
The only thing I would be negative is that we were told we had to wear trousers in some restaurants due to there region. As we thought this was a hot country we did not take any but they did lend us this so please take some trousers and summer shoes for men.
I did get ill during the holiday with stomach upset but the doctor came straight away and helped me which was so great - i was advised this was because i was spending all day in the heat and then walking straight into a cold air conditioned room prior to cooling down. Please be careful not to have your room so cold.
The weather is over 40 degree but you get such a lovely breeze all day and you don't feel the heat so be warn that you can burn. The beach was great with waiters getting your drinks for you on a regular basis. The sea is very salty and great for snookering.
Me and my partner went quad biking - i would recommend this but do book this down at the beech as it was so much cheaper then getting it from the reception or from your booking agency. We saved a lot of money.
Beware of Nanna Bay - it is very expensive and the one visit we did go was a great experience but i wouldn't visit there again. You get hassled a lot which reminded me a bit like Tenerife or Menorca.
The staff we ever friendly and always happy to help. Tipping is welcomed but not expected. I would advise as we did only tip at the end of your stay and tip your favourite waiters/bell boys etc...
Soho Square is vibrant and lively and again for S Class Savoy members was free drinks and food at all the bars. Be careful though the Queen Vic pub in Soho Square will charge you for drinks after 8pm if you are S Class.
All and all a wonderful relaxing break - Have been to many countries and all inclusive holidays and can honestly say this is 5 star value for money.
