We stayed in the hotel for weekend. Almost all were as we expected. Here is some details.
1) Very good location with the biggest beach in the city center.
2) pools are divided for two groups: for adults (with good evening bar with cool lounge music) near East wing and for families (with river and sliders) near the West wing.
3) sunset views directly from the beach area
4) we were upset for the food quality (as many others). Italian restaurant has no view at all (book table inside) and food was so-so. Arabian restaurant has great interior design with tasteless meal (the dessert we got 40 minutes later after several reminding). The best food was Fish restaurant - fast service, tasty dishes, nice music.
5) SPA treatment is very good. I recommend to visit.
6) BAD experience - there is NO welcome drink - You need to serve yourselves ))))) at the table where there is no clean glasses ))))))
- do not take rooms on the ground floor - there is almost no hedge from people eyes
- the first floor (second level) has the biggest balcony with Arch shape exterior.
- the best view will be from the top level rooms only (if Garden view)
- if You will choose a room with sea view NOT in the end of the wing - probably You will be faced to the white pavilions (they were built for Ramadan but looks like permanent constructions)
- take a taxi directly from the wing (do not go to the main entrance). Taxi fee is 3 times less than hotel car service. 6 hours rent costs 1.000 dirhams cash to driver or 1,200 if room charge.
- magnets in hotel shop were cheaper than in shopping malls.
