My daughter and I spent a fabulous week here at the end of October in the Fort Arabesque.
The weather was faultless wall to wall sunshine and not a cloud in the sky 30+ degrees every day it was great just what we needed.
Hotel was only 30% full so plenty of room on the gorgeous beach and round the pool area although the swim up bar is being refurbished so was closed.
A special thanks to the fab animation team Tito, Bavy, Samy, Bibo & Haisam who worked really hard to try to encourage the small number of guests to join in. The evening entertainment was good especially the show the animation team put on and the acrobats were great - then international dance show was terrible and needs to be replaced by the animation team doing there dance routines.
The beach, sea, coral & snorkelling was a good as in the Maldives - amazing !!!
We went on the Dolphin trip with the Idive centre and it was great actually saw dolphins & some beautiful fish.
Rooms were large & clean - and the room boys were excellent at making shapes out of the towels which my daughter loved.
Would I go back - yes definitely - had a fab week didn't want to come home.
