Stayed here January 2013. King size room (103) had lovely sea view, clean and plenty of space, with the usual hotel room items (toiletries, coffee, tea, robes, slippers). Positives included the free water every day, the delightful and very helpful staff, the reasonably equipped gym, and the location, which has to be just about the best location in the area. We tried the sushi night which was first class, and the pool and its area were sufficient, with the pool being warm and the area tidy. Areas for attention included the room itself, which was tired, as was the balcony area, which had tiles broken and missing which should be an easy job to maintain. Also the noise from the generator on the hotel roof was unacceptable, and when we complained about this, it was evident this was a common complaint about this particular room. So if you are sensitive to noise, make sure you are not in room 103! Also be careful in the restaurant if you attend the weekly themed buffet nights, as the drinks supplied at the table, including the bottle of water waiting for you, do not come with the meal, and a heavy tax adds considerably to the cost. The breakfast was a great experience, being served each morning on the balcony outside your room, plenty of coffee, breads, cakes, fruit and hot food, although was surprised the only choice of hot food on the menu was eggs. Whether fried, poached, boiled, scrambled or as an omelette, you can have eggs, but beef/turkey bacon, sausage etc. was not an option, something we think should be looked at, as it would provide some much needed variety. The location of the hotel adjacent to the Al Qurum resort is great, with easy access to restaurants, coffee shops and a small mall, and the hotel backs straight on to the most amazing beach, which took us easily 2 hours to walk along it, and we enjoy our walking. The hotel also has a good relationship with the local car hire service, and we booked 2 days car hire very cheaply. All in all a pleasant stay, very helpful staff and great location. If staying in the area again this would still be our first choice of hotel.
