Having been a returning guest at the 'Houda' for many years, I have just enjoyed my 'free' week, courtesy of the hotel. As usual, we had a fantastic holiday, with superb weather! All staff were attentive as always and went above & beyond, to make our stay more enjoyable. The chefs and kitchen staff deserve a special mention for offering to prepare special dishes, if there wasn't a good choice for us at the buffet - this was not necessary - but, like always, there was a great choice. Maybe some food looks strange to some people, but please don't 'knock it' until you've tried it. The hotel, obviously is quieter at this time of year, it is easier to get sunbeds & chairs in the terrace or reception at night, but even in the height of summer, we have found somewhere to sit. As we venture out and about, we don't have chance to join in with the animation as much as we'd like. Although each team we have met over the years are a great bunch, with some very talented dancers & gymnasts. Cleanliness of the rooms and public places were up to scratch, it would help if guests tidied up after themselves, especially after eating at the snack bar- there are bins located all around the pool. The hotels private beach is kept immaculate, by the hard working Farjani, and if any locals have time on their hands, could they please tidy the beach by Palm Inn?! We have never had any problems whilst staying at the Houda, but I'm sure attitude has a lot to do with that. Quote: “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” ~ Wayne W.

Glad the hotel is open all winter, looking forward to spending New Year with you all!! See you soon!!
