Just got back from Citadel,(17th May). Hotel is really big but although there are a lot of people there it never seemed crowded. Stayed in deluxe room, it was very large and generally clean. Mohammed cleaned it every day and restocked the mini bar. Some days he would create towel art which was a nice touch. The main buffet restaurant is what you would expect at all inclusive, reasonable choice and quite basic but what was there was really nice. We ate in La Gondola (Italian a la Carte) twice, and once in the Brazilian a la Carte. Both where really good and the food was much better. A nice change. You do need to book the day before you want to eat. We never used any of the three pools as there was plenty of space and beds on the beach and the snorkelling was okay. Ahmed at the beach bar looked after us and made sure we had some nice cool drinks when we needed them. Went snorkelling to Giftun island unfortunately the sea was quite rough and there are lots of other trips all in the same place. If like me you like your snorkelling at a slow pace with plenty of time to take all of the various sights in then this trip may not be for you. You do have a chance of seeing things like moray eels as a bit deeper but a bit chaotic. The stop at the island is literally lots of different excursions piled up along the beach. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and the staff were really polite.
