We travelled as a group of 12, 6 adults and 6 kids. We arrived around 11.30pm and had been travelling since 10am. Upon arrival we were taken into the resturant and given food and drinks, it was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble.
Our rooms were spotless and I loved the little piece of paper over the toilet to tell us it had been sanatised, the maids did a grand job, you can have your bed changed as often as you like and fresh towels everyday, do tip these people as they work hard 5 -10 dinar a week.The laundry service is worthwhile as its quite cheap and you dont pay for infants clothing, brilliant . The pool is spotless and the sunbeds were being recovered during our stay. The inside of the hotel is also spotless and wow its beautiful and so calm and relaxing, very traditional in style, which I was very happy about, nothing worse than these awful modern hotels when you want to experience a bit of culture. The staff everywhere were outstanding ,always a smile and time for a chat .Rhiad at the pool bar was an absoulte star, we didnt even have to move from our sunbeds to get our drinks. Now the guys and girls of the animation team what can i say except THE BEST.. a special mention goes to the Bossman Rico and Dean. The food is excellent and plentyful and there is something for the fussiest of eaters, at 4pm at the pool bar there are waffles and crepes with chocolate sauce yum, any wonder my clothes were tigh by 2nd week ,the que for this can be quite long.
Lots of daytime activities.and all so much fun, my little girl went to mini club from 10am-12pm and 3pm-5pm, my 11 yr old son was hardly seen from 10am-6pm lol he had so many things to do. My sister , our friend and myself went for a seaweed scrub in the hotel spa we also had the Turkish bath so relaxing and worth the money which was about £7. You must also go and visit Ali for some smoke on his hubbly bubbly pipes. The ani team put on some great shows in the evening which finish at 11.30pm, beware audience participation is usually required lol..its good fun. The ani team speak lots of languages. Out the gates of the hotel and to the right are some shops there are 2 fixed price shops, the first one you come to is brill,you do get a little bit of hassle but just be very firm with them,shop around also and be wary that the shops along the beach front and marina area are way more expensive! I did not enjoy the Medina , shop people where in your face and pulling at you, there where a few fixed price no hassle shops. MIND the roads..... ZEBRA CROSSINGS MEAN NOTHING.
Taxi rides and tuc tucs are very cheap but do agree a price before your journey just to be sure. I have read reviews that have not been complimentry about CK, and yes perhaps the bathroom needs new grout !!! but i cannot fault it and im not there 2 inspect the grout.
The only problems i had were with other guests like the ones who complained to us the night we arrived that we were making noise at 12.30 whilst going to our rooms...yes 6 excited children just arrived on their hols !!!!! and the people who complained that it was unhygenic for my niece to wear a tshirt into the pool??? she was sunburned even though she was wearing block.....and how so when the frogs swim in it at night lol forgot to mention the frogs.... they are harmless and really avoid people unless 1 wanders into the middle of the crowd during the show, then its hilarious, not much mossie problems either.
Hope I have packed as much info into this ramblings to help you reach a decision about your choice, we are going back next aug and I cant wait.
Hope you have a lovely holiday wherever you decide to go xxx
