“Terrible food”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I don't know who all these people are who like the food, but its terrible. Bland, repetitive, boring and often weird. There were lots of people complaining that the food had made them ill too.
I'm also pretty sure they water down the vodka.
Can't fault the bar staff however, they're all lovely. But the entertainment staff are far too pushy, and the entertainment in the evening is absolutely atrocious. They could learn a lot from Butlin's, which is really saying something.
Overall a bad trip, would not return.

Just came back from this hotel yesterday and missing it already! I went with my family and Boyfriend and had the most amazing 2 weeks. So happy we got transferred to this hotel from what we originally booked up iberostar chich khan which was awful!. The reception was very polite, welcoming and instantly felt comfortable. The rooms was very clean the maids done a fantastic job everyday even making our bathroom towels into creative swans everyday made everything outstanding. The view from our rooms of the swimming pool was lovely had a brilliant view. The animation team was enjoyable funny and always tried to make your holiday that bit more exciting without putting pressure on doing the activities like some complex do. The beach which is a couple of minutes down the road from the complex is beautiful and not far to get to. Restaurant food was a nice selection to choose from even though sometimes they did have the same foods but was enjoyable. The waiters were excellent always straight there at your service refilling your drinks and cleaning away finished dishes. Outside buffet they had at lunch times had really lovely food pasta, pancakes and many more. Evening entertainment was really good. Overall a brilliant holiday will defiantly come back again!

Had a brill time stayed 10 nights made great friends while there . Pool areas lovely ,some staff friendlier than others ,one of the waiters salem was lovely and always made you welcome and had a chat,animation team very friendlyand tried their best with evening entertainment! Dining hall needs more than 1 toaster had to keep queuing for toast! Also tea and coffee machines kept breaking and were closed at lunchtimes and evenings which was annoying as u had 2 get hot drinks at bar which u could see the bar staff got annoyed making em especially when there was a queue and you have to pay for wi fi which should be free as it works on and off! All in all had a great time

Just back from two weeks there and as a return visitor must say its went down hill fast in 2years. The staf are mostly rude and unhelpful in bar. You are told what you container u can have your drink in(plastic cups 20 for a pound at £ shop) heaven help you if you want a half pint of sprite as only for beer and that's if they don't run out of beer or alcohol before 9 pm as only set amount for day in bars. Food raw birds in dinning area pooping everywhere and on all the food. Cracked glasses ( hubby cut lip) I was asked to write list of things wrong and the manager never even had the decency to acknowledged the letter lights hanging off in pool filthy tables for the pool that you have to beg to get them clean lots of people complaining I would advise people to think very very carefully about going there as better hotels for price in area Animation team brill and a very few waiters in dining room worth their weight in gold and Ben in the bar Come on pull your socks up as we feel like we worked hard for a year to pay for this and were very badly let down. Maybe it's because it's being sold so they don't care as much Who knows

My partner and I stayed here in June 2013, and were slightly apprehensive after reading some of the reviews.Needless to say we had a fantastic stay at the hotel and would definitely recommend.
We arrived late at night and were took to our room, which was lovely and spacious and where there were 2 plates of food and 2 bottles of water waiting for us which was very welcome after the late flight. We got up the next day and were extremely happy with the hotel, the grounds are beautiful and well looked after, lovely pools. Yes it is a 5 minute walk to the hotels private area on the beach but so what, once you get there the beach is amazing and the hotel staff on the beach will look after you all day with refreshments as you require them as well as activities provided by the animation team such as bowls and water aerobics in the sea!!We have no complaints about the food and there was always plenty of choice every day and the desserts were out of this world. The staff and the animation team at the hotel are absolutely fantastic and definitely made the holiday, they cannot do enough for you and a little tip for example 1 or 2 dinars each night (about 80p) to your waiter goes a long way, they are lovely people who work very hard for very poor wages.
Special mention to Farud and Mohamed our waiters during the holiday, fantastic guys who couldn't do enough for us and also to all the animation team who work very hard every day and night keeping everyone entertained. We went on a couple of trips while we were there, the quads (excellent), the safari trip was amazing and the pirate ship is a must do. Overall fantastic holiday and we would definitely return.

Room Tip: Don't get a room opposite the stage if you want an early night as there is music until 12

Enjoyed our holiday last year so much decided to come back for 2 weeks this time. Loved every minute, staff are so friendly and helpful, always around collecting cups/glasses, bringing drinks/coffee, they work really hard. Food is great, never got bored as always a large selection to choose from, desserts are gorgeous, so are the afternoon crepes with chocolate sauce!. Rooms large and airy and cleaned every day, the cleaner sometimes leaving very nice towel art! We spent all our time on the beach which is lovely, and although the old beach bar was waiting to be replaced, we were never short of a drink as our good friend 'Lamjed' kept us supplied all day, so a very big thankyou goes to him.

If you are wanting a nice laid back holiday with friendly staff i would recommend this hotel. Hoping to go back very soon.

If you want a nice relaxing holiday with great people, i would highly recommend this hotel.

arrived early hours and as we got to the room a male guest along the corridor was shouting and banging doors,when getting in the room the lock on the patio doors was missing and as we were two women we were not happy about this .so going back to reception and a short argument later we were moved .all went well,till the day before checkout when we tried to pay the 50 dinars to keep the room on.... 5 times we were asked to come back and try again finally 2 hours before checkout we were told ok but it would be 60 dinars although it quite clearly stated 50,very rude and unhelpful reception staff ...apart from that hotel and holiday good .
