Firstly, I would like to say - DO NOT believe all the negative feedback about this Hotel - it was EXCELLENT!!!
The airport is a military airport (I would bring your own loo roll), but it is perfectly acceptable, with a coffee shop, Duty free etc.
The Hotel is clean, stylish and our room was large, comfortable and airy, with a balcony overlooking one of the four pools.
The beach is lovely, clean and about 1 min walk form Hotel.
The food, which after reading several other reviews, was my main concern was excellent. A wide range of food is available from 5.00am unbtil 12.30pm. Everything we ate, (in my husband's case, an inordinate amount!!) was well cooked and tasty. The service was good and the restaurant was very clean. I would love to know what the traveller who wrote that there was very little choice eats at home!!!! Basically if you can't find something you like here you must be super fussy!! For example there is usually a choice of pasta with a wide variety of sauces, 3 or 4 meat dishes, a couple off fish options, rice, potatoes, loads of salads/houmous, cheeses, freshly steamed veg, couscous etc etc etc.
If you still can't find anything, the chefs will usually try and help. I saw one Russian guy ask for chips, which the chef, although they weren't on the menu that evening duly made and another woman asked for poached eggs, when they also weren't available that morning. Again they obliged.
However the main thing about this Hotel are the staff - EXCELLENT - especially the bar staff (Walid and Mahmoud are particularly good). Nothing is too much trouble - they are helpful, friendly and the service is exceptionally good.
Even when certain Nationalities, who shall remain nameless were shouting, clicking their fingers and in one guy's case actually leaning over the bar to add more brandy to his drink, the staff were polite and professional. If you treat people with the respect they deserve, instead of like animals - you will not find better service than this is any bar anywhere!!!
We made friends with several other couples on this holiday, all of whom thought the Hotel was very good.
I will definitely return to this Hotel and would recommend to anyone - ENJOY!
