What can I say?? Nothing other than that we had a lovely holiday here. The staff are amazing!! My husband and I have stayed in lots of hotels---and have never experienced being looked after so well. The room was beautiful, a huge comfy bed, linen changed regularly and cleaned so well by Josef---thank you for the towel art, especially the monkey!!! Food was lovely, for dinner, on different evenings, we had the choice of roast turkey, chicken, lamb and beef, loads of salad, a pasta station and lots of vegetable dishes. Breakfast consisted of lovely pancakes, bacon, sausages, scrambled, boiled and fried eggs, yoghurt, fruit and cereals.. Omelettes were made on demand with lots of choices on fillings---also available, cold meats, cheese and a great choice of bread and rolls and lots of Danish pastries.
The sweets and desserts were out of this world---so much to choose from and all delicious!!
Now to the staff---Tamar looked after us from the moment we arrived and until we left---thank you--- you will go far in your career and we wish you well!!! Michel in the restaurant was exactly the same, he looked after us so well--- thank you too!! All the waiters in the restaurant served us with a big smile, they couldn't do enough for us! The bar men were so nice, both at the pool bar and in the top bar---Mohammed especially!!
Thank you to the pool man (sorry can't remember your name) who enjoyed a laugh and religiously put our towels out in the morning, and there are loads of sun beds available.
All in all, this is a lovely quiet hotel, it only has three floors and is so relaxing, it is only ten minutes from the airport, and the planes fly in all day, but they do not disturb you. All the toilets are immaculate, beside the pool, and throughout the hotel. If you want to visit Soho Square, a hotel taxi is available in the lobby. A free bus to the beach is available throughout the day, and you can visit Naima Bay on the hotel bus for a small charge. As for excursions, we went on the stargazing trip and also went snorkelling. The day spent on the boat was great, we saw the coral reefs and all the beautiful fish and had a lovely lunch.The stargazing trip was amazing and the knowledge that the guide had of the stars was beyond belief.
Now to the animation team---Lauren and Nicola are very friendly and will help you with any questions you may have. They tried their best to get people to join in the activities in the day, but, most people (ourselves included) didn't want to take part. Baboo was amazing, the kids loved him, he played water polo, table tennis and darts (as did the girls) but,due to the type of hotel this is, people come to relax, enjoy the sun, and really don't want a lot of activities during the day (or maybe we are being selfish?), so I think you should concentrate on your evening entertainment.
There are a few shops in the hotel, Ag selling the most beautiful Egyptian prints on papyrus--he was so kind to us, also visited the perfume shop and bought oil burners and lovely perfumed oil, thanks guys for your friendly attention!!
A great hotel, with amazing staff----highly recommended for a wonderful relaxing holiday.
