I used to stay in this hotel for business purposes, and I was very happy coming back everytime. I then booked for a vacation on a Friday to enjoy the pool and beach on a weekend, but unfortunately my stay this time was not that pleasant. The rooms are fine, the restaurants are good, we also enjoyed the early morning on the beach but unfortunately the pool was a disaster. There was a lot of children in the pool taking swimming lessons (I'm not sure if they are organized by the hotel but I saw 3 instructors that day) and much more playing together in the adults pool. It was so crowded, you can never try to swim but you can just walk between the crowds in the pool. The temperature of the pool was also annoying as it's temperature controlled and it was really cold for us at all timings during the day. They informed me at the reception that this is something they do in all rotana hotels. Anyways, will not go back for a vacation but I guess it's a good choice if you just need a place to stay overnight as the rooms and service are really very good
