From the second we arrived at the Sofitel until the time we left we had 14 days of the most relaxing holiday ever with definately the best value for money. The spacious and clean room was adjacent to the new pool area, no problem with sun lounges(plenty of them) although the towel guy reserved our beds outside our room every day. The bars and restaurant were in easy reach , all staff were very friendly(especially after they had been given a small gratuity) and helpful and the food terrific, we found that every night their was always something we enjoyed, we did visit the Asiatic Restaurant and had our meal cooked in front of us what a showman the chef was although the wine was very pricey at £50 a bottle (more expensive than the meal). The snorkelling was good in front of the Sofitel but much better in front of the neighbouring hotel (newer coral). Weather was between 35- 40 degrees every day with not a hint of rain exactlly what it stated in the brochure - zero rain with most days a nice breeze.
We only saw one creepy the whole two weeks and NO mossies, although we stuck religiously with ensuring plenty of water consumption my wife suffered a little bit with the dicky tummy but a trip to the pharmacy soon cleared the problem.
Entertainment was limited but a night under the stars with a few drinks were very relaxing.
In summary just what the doctor ordered, a very relaxing holiday in superb surroundings with fabulous staff and at a low cost.
