I stayed here in May with my mum, we had separate rooms which were both large and spotlessly clean when we arrived and cleaned daily, the beds were very comfortable and the flat screen TV has a couple of English channels, the whole hotel is kept spotlessly clean at all times.
The staff were all very helpful, polite and friendly.
The food was amazing, plenty of choice and plenty of food.
The beach is lovely and I spent all my time there, I didn't used the pool but it looked very clean.
I cannot comment on the entertainment as my mum and I didn't participate in any.
The drinks were good, cocktails if you want them, the pina colada`s were nice.
When we went the air conditioning was not on, apparently that is turned on at the end (22nd) of May, this affected the bar area which was very hot on some evenings and as it was still technically out of season there was no outside seating area which was a shame. The bedrooms however were very cool in the evening so this was not an issue there.
The hotel does not change travellers cheques only English cash which is a shame as we had to go into the port to change them, this was not a huge problem as we had some cash on us but if we had not had cash to change initially we would have not had the money for a taxi to get there ( you could walk I suppose but on a hot day I would not have enjoyed that just after I arrived).
I would recommend the Sahara Explorer trip, two days, lots of travelling but the places that you see and the trips that you do are amazing, it costs £92 which is brilliant considering what you get for that.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
