We went to the Old Palace Resort as a couple in need of some R & R in March 2014, having booked through Fleetway Travel, whose services we found to be excellent. This excellence was continued throughout our holiday with the help of everyone we encountered at this very well-run Resort, due in no small way to the management in general and Mr Tamer Shaheen, Director of Operations, in particular.
We were placed in chalet room 4010 which was wonderful. A six-foot bed, plenty of space, a beautiful bathroom, large television, all amenities and kept scrupulously clean every day. Although we overlooked the small, heated, pool and jacuzzi we never used them, opting instead to be on the beach which was worth a early rise to bag the beds we wanted! Even late-comers were looked after by the beach attendants, being found beds from nowhere and made as comfortable as possible.
Drinks were brought to the beds by the barman and were never in short supply. Yes, they were local spirits etc but whose fussy in the sun! They were made a strong as you might want anyway although we didn't want strong drinks anyway - we left the neat vodka to the Russians!
The restaurant was extremely well run and the food variable and well presented in heated vessels that showed individual temperatures to suit the contents. There was plenty of choice and food seemed to be available all day at one place or another. Chef Sayed at the egg station at breakfast is a genius deserving special mention. He remembered everyone and their choices and served eggs, omelettes etc to perfection.
Hasaan ensured that everyone was well looked after at the tables and helped make mealtimes a pleasurable experience.
The entire resort is run with welcoming hospitality at the top of the agenda and nothing is too much trouble to ensure satisfaction for the guests.
We shall be happy to return to the Old Palace Resort.
