Ok, so having just come back from our stay at Halomy for 7 nights, i will be honest...
When we first arrived, yes we did look at eachother and think 'o dear what have we booked'. But really, we grew to love it!
The hotel is set on top of the cliff of naama bay, the view= Amazing.
We booked a double room, but when we arrived we had two singles. We spoke to the manager and reception staff and they changed our room to a first floor, with balcony, sea view and double bed. With no hassle. the staff were apologetic and accommodating!
Yes the rooms are a little run down, but they are clean, the towels are changed every day and the cleaner does a fantastic job in the rooms during your stay. The bathrooms could do with a bit of updating and yes there are brown rust marks here or there. But its nothing to worry about , dont be put off by it. It wont harm you!
The food is good, a bit samey but they do have to cater for all cultures and people, there is a selection so you can choose what you eat!
The staff are probably the loveliest staff we've ever met in any hotel we've stayed at around the world! They all remember your name and like a good chit chat and nothing was too much trouble for them!
Being on top of naama bay, you do hear all the music from the clubs in the bay until about 3am, but theres nothing they can do about that!
It could do with some evening entertainment as the bar for all inclusive shuts at 10 and after that you have to pay, but the barman is a good laugh and will stay there until whenever you leave, there is no set time for closing.
At the end of the day, for what we paid... we have no complaints really. If you read all these reviews and go with bad thoughts you wont enjoy it. Go with an open mind. We did, and we loved it!
