We were here for 2 weeks all inclusive, on arrival we were stunned to see how beautiful this hotel was. Check in was fast and our cases were taken to our room for us. Our room was the 2 bedroomed family suite in the garden area, we were delighted with our accommodation, our 11 year old daughter was over the moon to have a flat screen tv in her own bedroom. We saw it more as an apartment as it had kitchen area, living room, bathroom (separate toilet are to shower area, which was great for the 3 of us), and 2 bedrooms, our balcony went right out into the grass area and had fantastic views. We were ground floor and a stone throw away from sunbed and pool area. Apartment was cleaned every day to a high standard, clean towels every day (if required), clean pool towels every day, mini bar was replenished every day with beer, coka cola, water and fresh fruit juice. Fruit bowl in room on arrival. Every room in apartment had its own air conditioning unit and was great.
Cleanliness was fantastic, pools cleaned every day, gardeners were always busy planting new plants and keeping gardens spotless.
Pool was like going into a warm bath, swim up pool bar was great, pool so clean and refreshing.
Pool bar served sandwiches or toasties during the day 11-4 then it was serving baked potatoes with numerous fillings from 4-5.30.
Bonsai restaurant was open all day to get snacks or lunch. Ice cream parlour was open for ice cream cones, crepes, milkshakes and ice cream drinks. This was great with weather being so hot.
A la carte restaurants were very good, best time to book one is first thing in the morning as they book up really fast.
Main restaurant was just amazing, the food was fantastic, we ate very well at every meal and most times we were stuffed from eating so much, the choice is just wonderful, both inside and outside. Puddings were gorgeous, the chefs certainly work very hard every day and the service was super, plates cleared very fast after you were finished, the waiters looked after us.
Beach bar is also lovely and nice to sit and look at the gorgeous views of the beach. The beach always had sun beds available although the beach had seaweed the jetty was lovely to walk along and just sit at the end to watch all the water sports. Good choice of water sports although they are not included and do cost extra. My husband and daughter went out on the jet ski 3 times and loved it.
The shows up at the theatre every night were good, entertainment team worked very hard but we really enjoyed the nights when an outside entertainment team were there. The sunbed issue was the worst, we had to get up very early as the Germans were early risers and had towels out on the sunbed s at 5/6 am, if you leave it till 8 am you will find it difficult to find a sunbed anywhere, the rule of no towels before 8am is not adhered to at all.
We never went hungry or thirsty at all for the whole 2 weeks, had a fantastic holiday, would certainly recommend this hotel and we would go back, maybe not July as it was extremely hot.
A huge thank you to all the staff at the Barut Arum, you made our holiday fantastic and worth every penny.
