I visited the hotel back in the beginning of July and hadn't read the reviews until a few days before we were due to go, they did make me wonder if it was going to be worth it but it was all booked by that time so too late really. We got there at about 1am as our flights were delayed but all the staff were so welcoming and nice and they helped us with our bags up the stairs when they showed us to our room. We had room 618, a nice clean room with a balcony overlooking the pool which was really nice. Only a short walk from the pool/restaurant/bar as well.
Our rep Jamal was so nice and caring and he was always making sure we were okay and enjoying ourselves. In our welcome meeting he told us about different excursions and we decided to do the camel/horse ride. It was good fun we got taken to a small indoor market where they gave us drink and we had a look around and then made our way back. Make sure you cover your legs if you do this as I worse shorts and was bruised from where the saddle rubbed my legs but it wasn't bad, my fault really!
The pool area was lively and the animation team were always coming to chat and make sure you were enjoying yourself and invited you to join in with their games and activities. Even if you didn't take part it was fun to watch everyone! The music was good, repetitive but it made a good atmosphere.
The food I really enjoyed there was always things like pizza/chips/salad but more or less every night had different options. Lunch was more of a recurring meal theme but we didn't always eat lunch anyway because of the heat. The waiters in the restaurant and bar were all so nice and have good English, always checking you have everything you need.
The entertainment at night was decent, they did things with the children early and then with the adults, all the animation team were great and really enthusiastic trying to get everyone involved in the dancing. They put on shows every night which were different each night and made you laugh. They animation team would often come and sit with you after as well and talk to you which was nice because you got to know them a bit more and they were so friendly! - Gaston especially as he was so outgoing and enthusiastic, they work such long hours and for him to remain upbeat and outgoing all day every day is amazing as it must be so tiring. He was friendly with absolutely everyone and has such good English he was a joy to talk to and do activities with and he definitely made the holiday for us.
The bar was good with decent spirits on offer and soft drinks.
Local shops were good and had a lot to offer, the beach was just across the road and was so lovely! It was nice ad private with plenty of beds and the sea was so nice!
I had a really good time and I would go back again. I think you just need to take the bad reviews with a pinch of salt because I can't honestly see how people can rate it that bad!
