Well it is difficult to describe how good this place really is. It could be the superb rooms, lovely pools or incredible cleanliness! All of which exist as you would expect. A number of things set this Hotel apart from all the other Hotels including many 5 star hotels we have stayed at in our one or two holidays a year since our honeymoon. We wanted a small peaceful boutique hotel and that is what this is. Dedicated entirely to personal service the management seem to have developed a level of service ethos that permeates from top to bottom. After a few days it became apparent that every member of staff was dedicated to delivering an excellent level of service. Not for tips either but you felt yourself tipping them anyway to make them as happy as they were making us. A mention goes out to Mohammed on reception. Mohammed the porter. The pool service guy who made sure our towels and sun beds were ready every day and the pool area immaculate. A special mention goes out to Mohammed the bar tender who was entertaining throughout and of course Mr Taha who is by far the best front of house manager I have ever come across in my life.
It seems they have solved the food issue with the opening of la Gondola exclusive for Royale guests on 1st October. Yes you have to walk about 200 metres into sonesta main resort but I have never stayed anywhere where you don't have to walk to the hotel restaurant. If you are a moaning idiot with no life and don't want to walk 200m then have one of Abdel's steak sandwiches at the bar they are to die for!
If you want a large herd mentality 5 star impersonal cattle market then don't stay here. If you want the best small boutique hotel that is different from all the rest then this is for you! Enjoy.
Guys! We know you will either read this or be told about it. Big up and respect to you all and see you soon. Jeremy and Debbie.
