Stayed here during Ramadan 2010 - it was everything we had hoped it would be and more......from the moment we arrived and were taken to our room until the moment we left, we experienced courtesy and good humour at all times.
Ate in the Al Khiran and the Beachside Pavillion and rate them both highly - breakfast is incredible and offers the most variety that I have ever experienced during a hotel stay. The Iftar buffet was just as astonishing - and the Chinese Restaurant offered the best Chinese food that my husband has ever tasted! Room service might be a consideration if you don't fancy getting dressed up for dinner - delicious food delivered to your room promptly and with the minimum of fuss.
Poolside service is second to none (Roni is a gem) and the heat was not a problem....air conditioning is brilliant inside the hotel and a choice of pools outside means that you never get too hot!
The private beach is an added luxury......try as we might, we could not find fault with anything at all.
We knew that we would return but didn't realise it would be so soon!!
