We booked this location for the beach access, but found the waterfront less than inviting, with bottles in the water, and the water being less than clean.
But the biggest letdown was the extra costs. Although we booked with the hotel chain with breakfast included, we were told that breakfast would be extra, and my daughter who was supposed to be free (children free) needed to pay full price. There was a pool, beach, fitness charge that amounted to $100 a day, and room service was in packages, so you could not just order what you wanted. This a la carte approach is a great money maker for the hotel, but it is really rough on the budget. Coupled with what was not available because it was Ramadan, I feel that I will go elsewhere, and steer clear of Accor for a while.
Our room smelled musky like there was a problem with the air conditioning. Pool was excellent!
Breakfast was sensational! Staff should have stayed home!
