(English is not my native language, sorry for misspells)
This hotel is not necessarily for everyone, so I can't suggest it without some reservations. We have just spent our sixth holidays in Fanara (my wife and me and kids 7 and 10), so obviously those reservations do not bother us too much. The location is superb if you want to snorkel and dive, since it has a beautuful house reef(s) - including reefs of nextdoor hotels. The beach is not big, but it has sand lagoone for kids. Also (important!) it is protected from the waves and the corral reef is "opened" 24/7 (during daylight ;-). But if you have problems with stairs or walking up the hill from the beach, you should reconsider this hotel - the beach is about 30m lower than the hotel and the climb in noon sun can be chalanging.
The rooms have just been refurbished, but familly villas are kind of worn out. I hope, they start refurbishement there as well (soon!).
The guests were mostly Italian in thew past, but this year mostly Russians were seen. The intertainment is mostly Russian as well and to be honest not really on a high level. But we do not care for this very much, we spend our days snorkeling and diving. Dive center is nice there.
The food is not greate, although it was better this year than previous ones. We were still missing some variation, missing some arabian food, missing lamb, missing fresh fruits (water-mellon, for example) and so on. So - food is getting better but it is still not a higlight of this hotel.
All-in-all, if you are into beach, corral-reef and do not care about entertainment, this could be your hotel of choice (it is ours, since next year we are returning for 7th time:-)).
