We travelled here last March for 2 weeks as a couple through Thomson.
When we first arrived at the hotel check-in was a breeze we went straight to our CLEAN One bedroom apartment no.126. As it was located on the Ground floor our balcony was really shaded by palm trees and as my partner can't sit in the sun all day we go back to our apartment of an afternoon and I like to sit on the balcony. So I asked reception if we could change rooms and it wasn't a problem, they changed us to room 86 on the top floor, again it was absolutely spotless, the balcony had sun all day and we even had a view of the sand dunes and in the very distants the RUI hotel and the sea!!
We rented safes, as we had read a couple of reviews that peoples stuff got stolen, but its only common sense to rent a safe and not leave valuables lying around!! $15 a week with a deposit for the key
We also paid extra to have more channels on the TV. $15 a week, with a deposit for the remote.
We were self catering so we didn't eat in the hotel at all, So I can't comment on the food.
The Apartment as I have said were soo clean, Massive bathroom with a shower over the bath. Kitchen had microwave, Fridge, hob, kettle, toaster and all the utensils you needed.
The Resort as a whole was beautiful, there were always gardeners & cleaners about, the hotel is all two story and is like a little village, there are three pools in the front section of the hotel and if you walked right to the back there was another two, which we only found on the last couple of days of the holiday.
There is some shops attached to the hotel, The supermarket is soo overpriced go to the Dino supermarkets, they are so much cheaper!
If you walk out of the hotel and go right, there was a cafe owned by a English Family, they served very English food!! That was great for lunch.
The resort was very quiet the only noise we ever heard was the seals opposite the hotel @ Baku Water park, which was unfortunately closed as we were there out of season.
The walk down to the town took between 15 - 25 minutes depending on where you wanted to go, We ate on the sea front every night...
NOT A MACDONALDS, BURGER KING, KFC OR PIZZA HUT IN SIGHT!!!! Which was fab!! Fresh fish, steak, tapas ect.. all brill, we never had a bad meal in the whole 2 weeks we were there.
We rented a car and went out and about all the time, the south of the island is gorgeous as well!
The best beaches are where the sand dunes are, some days we were the only people on the beach, also..... FUE is a big attraction for nudist.(not that there is anything wrong with it, we were probably some of the very few people who wore bikinis and shorts!!).. we didn't know this until be got there... and we were very shocked!! This didn't ruin our holiday what soever , you just learnt not to look, and on the big stretch of beach near the two RUI hotels there were areas built where they tend to sunbathe.
All in All, we never had any problems start to finish of our holiday, We are a well travelled couple in our mid 20's and found this Hotel/Resort had everything we wanted, which was a clean base and quiet and relaxing (we went in March). Alot of people love to come on here to complain about really petty stuff... Go open minded and you will surley have a fab holiday like we did.... and we are booked to go back.
