Have stayed here several times. If your budget can stretch to it, stay in a Gold Room. Service on the Gold Floors is impecable - efficient, pleasant staff, who will greet you by name, remember your favourite tipple, and for whom nothing is too much trouble. The Gold Manager (Arnold Francisco) moved here from Dubai and had his staff delivering wonderful service from day one.
Poolside staff carry on this level of service. Italian Restaurant is very good and so is the cafe near reception. There are better restaurants if you venture into the city centre. City centre is about 30 minutes by taxi, which will cost you about 20 - 25 Dirhams each way.
Currently no spa (it has been coming soon for two years now) and the gyms (mens and ladies) are in villas at the bottom of the driveway - small but functional.
Best hotel for business and couples - not really oriented towards children as there is just the sea and pool for them to play in.
