Stayed here for a long weekend, amazing location and beautiful scenery but all else is a bit of a let down.
Rooms: Spacious, clean and good access. Beds are nice and comfortable.
Pool/Beach: Great, lots for kids/adults to do and really well maintained. Guys with water and fruit only really come once a day if that. All loungers are reserved early in the morning as well which is a pain as no one sits on them till 11am.
Food: Big let down, very expensive and compared to other shangri las, very poor. We had raw lamb one night which led to a toilet hopping night. Other nights, food was edible but not what you expect. Visited 3 other Shangri Las and they are much better.
Overall, great location, rooms and pool. Food is a let down and nowhere else nearby to go.
Free shuttle to the souq is a good touch although they just leave people who are not back on time with no headcount done.
