This is the second time that we have stayed at the Sarojin - the last time being around 3 years ago. We stayed for 11 nights in March and on returning found it it to be generally as wonderful as last time with perhaps a few more signs of wear and tear in a few places.
The staff were as friendly and helpful as ever and it is still a great place to relax either on the beach, by the pool or relaxing in the sala that is provided outside of each room. The rooms are generally quiet and quite seclude. We stayed in a garden room which was well appointed and had almost everything that you might want. We used the spa on 3 instances and fond it to be very good and the staff to be very friendly. We ate in the hotel restaurants each evening and found the food to be very good. The edge restaurant in particular is a great place to eat - although it is best to book a table as it is very popular now.
Negatives would be a pool which while perfectly useable is beginning to show some signs of wear and could probably do with taking out of action for a week or two to replace broken tiles - although there seems to be an attempt to make repairs while it is still in use. Being picky it would also be nice to have an iPod doc attached to the music centre in the room as the range of cd's is limited & the standard of English spoken is not as good as the previous time we stayed which can cause some confusion when ordering meals.
Overall though the staff are wonderfully friendly and inviting and it is just a great place to relax. If you get the urge to do something more active the hotel offer a variety of activities and excursions using their own guides, cars, boats etc. I have only marked it down on value as it is no longer as competitively priced as it once was due to the fall in the balue of the pound. We are definitely looking forward to visiting again in the future.
