We stayed at the hotel and area based on the excellent reviews and recommendations of friends and the main need for our holiday to have little restrictions to the beach and surrounding areas due to my wife have an imbalance problem when working.
Well we arrived bang on time and only had a small wait for our keys and the splendour of the reception matched all the promises the reviews and friends had stated.
Our room was spacious although single beds pushed together may be better favoured with a double when you book a double but we lived with it.
Meals were provided with plenty of selection and we rarely attended dinner but on these occasions we found the food to appear warmer than the evening. All the staff where helpful especially the pool staff were I spent a great deal of time.
Having chosen an holiday with direct access to a beach I was more than let down when I approached as far as the eye could see a beach completely littered with seaweed and camel dung. Then when I got to the waters edge there was at least 20 yards of black sand ankle deep with rubbish mainly plastic bottles. This remained all week and the beach had an attempt to remove the seaweed I assume because you cannot play volleyball ankle deep in camel dung.
The beach is advertised as private but is controlled by the government probably why it's not cleaned.
Entertainment was for adults rather poor in the evening in my opinion and the outside bar and area was never used when we where told at least once a week they have open air event.
To conclude there appeared to be a bland atmosphere over the resort and hotel, those who have been many times advised it was normally buzzing,outside music at the bars and the staff interacting with humour between the guests and staff. Will we return i'am sorry the juries still out.
