The hotel rooms were very nice and well appointed. The property itself was undergoing maintenance while there so it created a bit of an eyesore, but it was not a big deal. Service was very good and employees always were quick to help with a smile on their face.
The breakfast buffet is not very good at all. No salt or pepper at the tables which I though was odd, the coffee was not good at all, they would also stop putting out more food at around 9am. Hash browns became a real hot commodity around 0845! The food we ordered for dinner and snacking was very good, so besides the buffet I give the restos a thumbs up.
The Beach, my Lord, the beach! It was like walking on talcum powder, and the sand never got hot! The water was a beautiful clear turquoise, it's a real postcard sight! The beachfront service was top notch, and the security guard did a heck of a job keeping the peddlers away. The beach itself is far away from the Sex pats and the unruly kids that hang out in the D Mall area, so it really is a quiet place to relax.
I have stayed in many 5 star hotels, and I would not include this hotel in that category. The service was great, but it was the little things like lack of toiletries, terrible breakfast buffet and coffee, etc. However, the beach is really something to behold and makes this place worth it...
