Overall we had an excellent relaxing holiday at the Chich Khan, though there are a coupleof areas that could be improved.
CHECK IN & ROOMS
On arrival check in was quick & efficient, we had booked 2 rooms & I had e mailed the hotel direct prior to travelling to request 2 pool view rooms & received a reply saying that this was possible, on check in we were told that we only had 1 pool view room & that my son & his friend didn not have a pool view but I thought I would accept that, until we went to there room to find that there was a generator of some sort at their part of the building & the noise was terrible (1392) so I went back to reception & the guy was very helpful initially said that he could change their room in a couple of days but I pushed & he agreed to move them to another room that night ( with a pool view !!) the odd room numbers have the pool views, so I would recommend anyone to e mail the hotel direct prior to departure. Family rooms do not have a balcony.all rooms have a separate toilet/bathroom, water warm most of the time. Rooms have air con ours didn't work that well the one in the boys room far better & much needed, fridges in room were never filled.
On the whole we ate well during our 10 days here, main complaint no cold milk at breakfast for cereal always warm ...yuk !! Lovely crepes at breakfast & dinner, fried eggs or ommelettes made fresh on the griddle as you wait. Lunch @ the snack bar very repetitive burgers or kebab on buns, pasta & bolognaise, ommelettes. chips, salad. Lovely freshly made waffles & crepes in the afternoon...yum !!
Pool area lovely always plenty of sunbeds & mattressess available, entertainment team work really hard & accept a no from you when you don't want to take part. Night time entertainment was well done though we mainly watched from our balcony.
All the staff that we came in contact with during our stay from reception, restaurant.snack bar,pool area & entertainment team were second to none they work long hard hours for I'm sure not a great amount of money & were always helpful,friendly & smiling, people have said that they were just like that to get a tip but we did not find that at all. We gladly tipped the staff during our holiday & at the end of our stay & they were so pleased & grateful to receive & it was a pleasure to give to them.
VALUE FOR MONEY
For what we paid for our holiday we found it good value for money & for the first time we returned home with money !!
Probably what we liked least about the resort was the hassle you recieve when out shopping particularly in the medina I would recommend using the fixed price shops either outside the hotel or on the promenade. Found out that they have built a new airport & as of next year all British flights will go there so it will be about a 30mins transfer instead of 1hr30mins which is a big plus.
If you've booked i'm sure you will have a fantastic holiday but as I always say your holiday is what you make of it.
