Overall it was good value for money and the gardens and pool areas were spotless and well maintained. The best points in my opinion were, staff were great, Osama the pool attendant by block 14 was hard working and always polite, running around offering drinks and keeping the area clean. Ahmed in the cliff bar was again fantastic, polite chatty tireless and ran rings around the other staff. Rooms, we were placed in a standard room first which was OKish, but seemed dark and had Mosquitos. On the first morning we requested an upgrade, £34 per night, and got a pool and sea view junior suite which was clean light airy with a fantastic view and no mozzies, worth every penny, you pay your money and take your pick! Drinks on all inc were usual own brand stuff OK for a a package at that price. Food in the Fusion was very good, also the Mexican and the cliff bar lunch was great, we also paid for the seafood meal as extra one night I the cliff top bar, again gradations food. The reef bar was good for a quiet breakfast and evening drink if you want a quiet spot. The main buffet was the let down and the reason for an average score. Better food there would make this hotel good or even great. Poor choice if you arrived an hour after opening time, food was bland (as opposed to tasting bad), not very warm, service slow and often you seemed to be sat in a corridor with other guests passing your table all the time. Free WIFI in the lobby??? Never got a connection. So in summary, great for the price, try and book the other restaurants every night if you can, pay for an upgrade to a sea view room and you will enjoy your stay
