Let me start by saying that after hearing people on the plane home moaning about their hotels we must have found a hidden gem.
We encountered one problem, the room was supposed to be for 2 adults and 2 children, when we arrived the room had one large bed. I called the reception desk to be told that they could send one extra bed, but the room was not big enough for 2 extra beds. After waiting some time we went up to reception. they explained that all rooms in the hotel were the same size and that if we wanted more room then we could pay for an additional room at our expense.
We explained we had already paid for a room big enough for 4 people and that's what we were expecting. They added two additional beds and moved most of the other furniture out to make room for them. We did not spend much time in the room thankfully as it was a squash and a squeeze.
The staff were amazing, very attentive and always saying hello on the way past, they work hard the whole day through never stopping and that's seven days a week. Mohammed in the Zen bar was brilliant, interacted really well with my two children swapping card tricks and talking football.
Mostafa in the lower pool bar, brilliant, always making sure you had a drink, making sure everyone participated. Made 'bomb bomb's' for the children as well as the adults.
Your Bar - a lovely cool relaxing place to chill before/after dinner drinks.
Trips - we booked plenty of trips some with the guy on the beach some outside the hotel.
James - Scuba diving, gave the children a lesson in the pool first and then we went diving off the beach, very good with the children explained everything, made sure they were happy. great experience
Ahmed - Speed boat trip, snorkeling dolphin spotting, very lucky a large pod of dolphins which the children loved. para sailing around Sharks Bay, great trip great views of the bay. Inflatable armchair thing, around the bay behind the speedboat great fun, giggles galore.
Quad biking in the desert, went for about 30 mins then stopped had a break a drink and rest then back on the bikes to return, amazing trip.
swimming with dolphins - again an amazing trip well worth doing, it is very busy and you go in with other people but you do get a good 15 mins with them and they are amazing creatures.
All in all it was a wonderful holiday which we all enjoyed, my 2 (9, 11 yrs) children would say the best part was the slide pool and the dolphins the scuba diving.
Highly recommend the hotel, its still new so has not had time to get to shabby.
