Just returned from two weeks at this hotel. Rooms as previously described are large and very clean. Had problems with water temperature and power on odd occasions but generally not a problem. The food is of very good quality but some people complained about the choice, meaning that there wasn't chips and pizza available every night. We travelled with friends and found there to be lots of choice and the food was always hot. The bread is wonderful too. All the staff were brilliant, they all made the effort to talk to you and I would wish to recommend to the management team the services of Ahmed in the bar, Hamadi and Mohammed in the restaurant and our cleaner Hamdy. They all brighted up our stay with their fantastic service and ready smiles and willingness to help. My only comment would be for the management to enlarge the lobby bar and give Ahmed some support, unfortunately the manners of some guests left a lot to be desired, particularly around the time that the all inclusive drinks finished. They should be ashamed of themselves!! Have a massage in the spa, they are wonderful. If however you wish to be in a lively resort please look elsewhere, there is nothing but the hotel around for a good 40 minute drive to Port Ghalib, this is well worth a look tho.
The swimming/snorkelling is wonderful in the bay but please everyone try not to stomp on the coral!! We saw a turtle and absolutely hundreds of fish. We went on the Ocean's trip and saw a dugong and a turtle and around 12 dolphins swam alongside the boat, it was brilliant. Our rep Alan was lovely and more than happy to help with anything. Please First Choice give him his wish to go to Aruba next year. :)
Thanks to everyone at the hotel, we will be back.
