Had a lower ground floor room with balcony overlooking the beach fab setting! Room a bit shabby asked for two single beds they were made up as a double so had to wait for housekeeping to change bedding despite pre arranging this. Went to pool had towels taken twice! Once with my watch wrapped inside fortunately pool attendant had it in his pocket! Again nice location of pool overlooking the beach. Ordered two pizzas for dinner one came which was good then waited like a lemon for the other after the first pizza was nearly demolished I made enquiries after the other pizza to be told they had run out of mushrooms. Would have been nice to be told ended up with a club sandwich which was cold. The hotel is geared up for weddings because of the location so had to dodge wedding parties the whole time and photo sessions! It was however Eid so maybe that contributed to issues.
