My husband and I went for 10 days and came back yesterday - we always felt this was the 'right' amount of time for us - however, we both agreed that this is the first time that we could happily have stayed away for 2 weeks! I have stayed in some amazing 'Hotels of the world' (Raffles in Singapore, Burj-Al-arab Dubai), and it's true to say that the Delphin Imperial comes pretty close. We had booked a standard room with a land view, however when we arrived (very quick, easy book in process), we were told we'd been upgraded to a junior suite on the 2nd floor, sea view! (no noise form the disco at night either!) We were delighted! Everyone was very helpful, true to say that we had a couple of difficulties with the language barrier, but this in no way marred our holiday in any way....a good sense of humour goes a long way. We noticed how hard the staff work and long hours, so really appreciated even more the lengths they go to to help the guests. Many people have already mentioned the girls on skates, cleaning your sunglasses etc...staff went beyond the call of duty. We often saw waiters insisting on carrying the elderly guests dinner to their tables. If you were struggling to put a sun brolly up then someone quickly came to help! We found the food exceptional ---- never had a problem with booking the A-la-carte restaurants. We saw people queuing from 8.20am to book, but we rang at 8.45 each morning from our rooms and always got booked in! We tried all the A-la-cartes but found the main buffet to be of a very high standard. We were impressed that putting your towel down to reserve sunbeds before 8.30 am was prohibited - if this happened, then staff were seen removing the towels! It stopped the age-old problem of people getting up at 4am to reserve sun beds in their prime spot!! Saying this, we never had a problem getting a sunbed ever - we always went to the 'relax pool' where children under 14 were not allowed (no offense intended to those who have children, as there were 2 much larger, better equipped pools for kids). This is a huge hotel, but caters extremely well for all guests. Entertainment was a little 'cheesy' in the evenings, but after a couple of drinks it becomes much better!! As for the drinks, this is a true all-inclusive - proper alcohol, with proper measures. All in all, we felt thoroughly spoiled and wouldn't hesitate to go again - we just hope that it will maintain the same high standard in the years to come.
