After reading all the bad reviews for this hotel I was a worried about staying here, however, now I'm back I can't fault it, I don't know what the people leaving 1* reviews were on!!
Hotel: the hotel itself was beautiful, grounds and lobby areas were all kept clean. Reception staff couldn't do enough for you, waiters and bar staff were all lovely and none of them hung around expecting a tip like I have found in some hotels.
All inclusive: I'm not sure what people think when they book all inclusive, but obviously the food is going to be similar to other nights as they have all foods available. They can't change food because the minority want to complain, they serve rice, pasta, pizza, chicken, fish, beef, potatoes, vegetables, chips, hamburgers, pretty much anything you want. If you're that fussy that you can't find something you like in what they serve then you shouldn't be going all inclusive. Soft drinks were fine, spirits wasn't as strong as back here so not sure if they were watered down like I read on someone elses reviews but we still manged to get drunk off them one night (oops) so they weren't that bad! Beer was good, gassy but still drinkable, wine was fine also although best with a drop of lemonade in.
Location: due to the weather being rubbish the whole time we were there we walked out of the hotel and around the town most days. Perfect location, taxi drivers are outside should you need them but a simple no and they'll drive off. Up the road to the left is the medina with all restaurants in (beautiful steakhouse there, definitely recommend!).
Having 2 days of thunderstorms and 4 days of rain we did not have chance to visit the beach so can not comment on what this was like in terms of cleanliness. I would definitely return to this hotel, although probably in the summer!
