I have recently returned from my latest stay at this beautiful hotel. It was so lovely to see so many of the staff have returned following the forced closure due to the cessation of direct flights, including Mr Ayman the hotel manager. Even though there were very few guests the standards are still as high as always including entertainment every... More

The hotel room was very large with high ceilings, a balcony looking out to the front of the hotel which would not be so great if you wanted to sit out there although it was v quiet out front but it was handy to dry out the beach gear.

I visited in November 2015 for a 6 day stay. The hotel was clean and had a nice atmosphere in the lobby area. The pool was a bit cold but wasn't over crowded either. The all inclusive menu was extensive but the food was quite salty.
