My partner and I stayed at the hotel from 13 - 21/09/12, The service at this hotel was truly excellent. Yes, there were hardly any English folk at the hotel, but we were expecting that.
The food was plentiful, always meat and fish cooked to order and plenty of interesting dishes such as okra or aubergine bake and we loved trying the unusual dishes, at breakfast we often had omelette cooked to order with filling of choice. The staff were always friendly, and even though we were out and about on trips, shopping or ruins, the time spent by the pool was fun (Ice Cream at 3 pm) and the weather was always hot. The entertainment staff worked really hard and even roped me into a poolside darts tournament. If all of your darts fell out you had to jump in the pool! Luckily this didn't happen to me.
The room was OK but we asked for another one overlooking the pool as the view was not great and they helpfully obliged. The mini bar was filled every day for free which was a nice touch, though drinks at the bar were good quality and topped up even when you said no, that you'd drunk enough!
We had a massage in the Hamman which was lovely. Shops around the corner on the way to the beach were also good. My partner bought a leather jacket there which they designed to our specifications and made in a day, and fitted and did alterations the next day. It looked really good, just like the Armani one that we based our design on.
The only thing I would gripe about is the fitness suite, the equipment was old and looked knackered, but hardly anyone else seemed to use it.
We would certainly go again.
