Spent two weeks 14 to 28 November. The 2nd week cost me €146 extra pp = €20 per day!!! Given this cost the value is astonishing. The resort has many plus points; Food is good to excellent (could have had a "Middle East corner every day and not once per week); anyone who cannot find something good to eat at each meal has a serious problem. I heard rave reviews about the pasta. Staff were friendly without being pushy. No "baksheesh" begging. Room quality/service was impeccable, after some initial equipment problems.
There was a mix with Russian, Italian (not on the dives though) and Germans dominating, but with a good representation by Dutch and British. A mega-plus is access to the best house reef in my 20 years of diving; superb snorkelling; close to Elphinstone; professional dive centre with competitive prices. Weather was perfect; sea temperatures excellent. Warm and fresh swimming pools. Easy beach access. Gym, chemist, hairdresser, massage and clinic on site. Pretty gardens. Alcohol quality was remarkably good, even the white wine, but the red was dreadful. Beer was cold and pleasant. Brilliant pool bar.
Cons: One case of 'Gippo' tummy, sorted out by the pharmacist in 24 hours. Wonky room equipment - speedily repaired. Decorations and ambiance of the dining room and lobby bar reminded me of old railway stations. Bring repellent for the mozzies for pool bar sundowners. Very limited english TV
