My husband and , returned yesterday from a two week honeymoon.
This was our third trip to Hughdra and second time to the sunrise Royal, The moment we arrived in the Hotel it had a great atmosphere and staff reminded calm while checking in. We were surprised how quick we were taken to the room and our luggage arrived. We arrived with two full coaches and half of another coach.
We were put in block 34, we had a family room, when we arrived to the room, we had a cake, bottle of wine and fresh fruit waiting for us. This made the start of the honeymoon better. The room was large, very clean, the bed was comfy, the bathroom good, the shower was great with hot water running no matter what time of day we used it. Our room cleaner was great, he spoke to us daily and made arrangements out of the towels and decorated them with fresh flowers. The mini bar was stocked up weekly for us. The view from the baloncy was great and although we were in a family block we never heard any children.
During the day we went around the main pool and lay near the towel rack, I was a little disapointyed with the sun loungers as the last time we were here they were wooden, a guest did inform us that the hotel management had explained they had problems with birds getting at them at night. We assumed they were pulling the stuffing oput of the mattresses. The loungers were clean and staff went around the pool throughout the day clearing up and mopping up water around the pool to stop people falling over. The towels were always clean and the staff very friendly and always asked if we were ok. The water was abit of a shock when first egtting in, but after a couple of days we were fine. The man at the swim up bar was always polite to us and even remembered what drinks we liked. I often felt sorry for him being there all day, his smile and attitude never changed. I joined in the water gym, a few times and found that this time alot more people were joining in, rather than when it was in the sports pool. The animation team walked round the pool often, talking to guests and making us feel welcome to join in the activities.
We did not spend as much time on the beach this time, but went swimming in the sea, the beach always appeared clean and was a friendly atmosphere.
We ate our dinner pergola bar having pizza, the atff were always friendly checking we were ok. They all seemed like they enjoy their job. We opted to eat here as the main buffay was to busy at luch time for us. All around the world was calmer, but we gotr into a great routine. The only thing that let it down was some of the umbrella's looked a little tired and broken.
During the evening, we ate in the al la cartes, the touvh screen booking system is sooo much better. We really enjoyed the mexican and asian, The staff in all the restraunts were amazing, friendly, kind, gave advice on the food. The lay outs in the restraunt were great and each one had its own theme.
During the evening we drank in the lobby bar, where we found it was comfy, friendly staff, drinks were nice, pleasant music. We do feel more chairs are needed in the outside seating area.
The staff at the hotel helped make our honeymoon, they ALL went above and beyond the call of duty, Mohammed our rep was great to and was concerned when I had to get medication from the clinic. Again there the doctor was friendly, spoke clear english, gave advice. (I had a bad tummy, immodium did not clear it up). Guest service were great arranging candle lit meals and answered all our questions. We liked the fact the management team were always walking round the hotel, talking to guests and asking questions.
We cannot wait to come for our 3rd visit at the sunrise royal. Thankyou so much for an amzing honeymoon.
