Just returned from Ramla Bay with mixed feelings about the place. There was no room for us the first night due to overbooking by the hotel (not the tour operators) but we were eventually put into one of their appartments for one night. We'd booked a superior room (£20 per night) but the first room we were given was awful - shower didn't work, air con didn't work, water wouldn't drain from bath because it was clogged with old hair - yuk. Afer 3 days we got moved to another room (number 3) and this was OK except air con could only be used on full blast. For £20 a day you get to see the sea and have a mini bar that is filled on arrival but not again - about £10 worth of drinks.
Our tour rep was excellent and negotiated a £100 refund for us - repaid in cash before we left.
Having said all this the facilities were excellent and the staff were brilliant . It's in a remote location and you really need a car unless you want to rely on the local bus service and you couldn't see the whole island using that.
The food was mixed . We stopped half board so not sure about lunch. Breakfast was good - plenty of choices of continental or full cooked, but the evening meals were a bit repetitive. A good salad bar plus a choice of a roast and fish plus food for kids, but the vegetables were the same every day and the roasts were overcooked and bland.
This was advertised as a 4 star hotel, but it wasn't up to the quality we normally get for that rating. All in all a bit disappointing, but not enough to spoil our vacation. I wouldn't use the place again though.
