We have just returned from our holiday and can't wait to be back at the Ibn Battuta. This must be our 6th time to this hotel and enjoy it so much as it feels like a home from home. We are always welcomed with big smiles and genuinely feel that the staff are pleased to see us. The food is so good in this hotel that we have to lose weight before we go as we know we will put so much on. The Sicilia Italian is wonderful and the chef Stephano is so fascinating to watch, we call him the Italian Gordon Ramsey! He is so good, as my husband is a fussy eater that he will come out and ask him what he would like and will always adapt a dish to suit him. The Chinese is lovely as is Chit. I want to mention a few of the staff who always make our stay more enjoyable as they really go out there way to look after us. Vincent and Evans at the hotel pool are lovely and they both smile all the time while serving us endless cups of tea and coffee in the boiling heat. Romel (the little Philippine man) on concierge is lovely and always quick to help. It's so nice to go to the Oceana Beach Club and be greeted by Jacqueline, Vincent, Eric and Paul. They work so hard with sometimes very demanding people in the soaring heat without moaning and always a smile on there face. We love Vincent who has a passion for music and seems to know so many different styles of music and kept us reminiscing and trying to remember certain groups. All in all a great hotel and the reviews speak for themselves. The staff are a credit so Ibn Battuta Gate keep up the good work and we will see you again soon. X
