We have just returned from 16 days at the Samira Club and we all had a great time. we were a family of 5 I travelled with my husband and 3 children aged 15,14 and 11.
Check in was quick efficient and friendly even though we arrived after midnight, all inclusive was over so we were given bottles of water until the following day. We were shown to our room which was at the back in the green block nice and quiet although a little dark a bit more lighting on the paths would be useful.
The complex consisted of little blocked bungalows, there was a yellow block, blue, orange and green, if you have any walking difficulties I recommend asking for the yellow as it is closer to all the amenities.
The rooms were basic but clean and gave a very authentic feel with a small area outside with patio furniture. The bathrooms consisted of a bath, shower, sink and toilet clean towels and complimentary soap and shampoo.
The restaurant was very spacious and clean, waiters were not miserable it was just their lack of understanding english which made them a little hesitant. The food was good, breakfast consisted of your usual breads, sweet pastries, cereal, toast, cooked meats, doughnuts, boiled eggs and sometimes fried eggs and fruit, sorry no omelettes. Drinks tea, coffee, hot chocolate and fruit juices. Lunch and dinner had a variety of fish, beef, turkey, lamb and mutton dishes with a wide selection of vegetables and bread, desserts were also very nice tirimisu, fruit and chocolate mousse to name a few.
Snack bar was open from 10am til midnight, fries, pizzas, rice potatoes, bread, pastries and salads on a rotation basis as well as unlimited icelollies from the all inclusive fridge, the one with the lock on is with charge.
Every day around 4 til 5 outside the snack bar there was doughnuts freshly prepared.
Pool area, was cleaned every morning, we always got 5 sunbeds together but then we were there before 8 am, my advice is to get up a little earlier for breakfast to avoid and rush.The entertainment was good with archery, water polo,aqua aerobics, boccia and stretching all done on a morning, music and dancing was limited at the pool which was disappointing but when the did the atmosphere was great, The animation team was really good our kids got on really well a special mention to Mario and Baganda who were great. The beach looked clean and tidy although the only time we used it was for a parachute ride which I really recommend at only 30 dinar, book with super Mario on the beach.
The afternoon entertainment varied, there was a tournament every day of either football, volley ball, ping pong or archery as well as arabic lessons, step classes etc. The kids club had a play area as well as free games consoles etc.
The bar was great, the waiters are fab once you show them a little respect which sadly lacks with the clientèle of this hotel, when they know what your drink is, they have it ready for you whether you tip or not.
The evening entertainment is poor unless you like cheesy drawn out dancing and bingo followed by an ok show which starts around 10.15pm
There was an onsite night club but cannot comment as I didn't use it,
On the whole this hotel was great here are a few negatives
There was a bit of a wasp problem around due to people leaving ice lolly wrappers, uneaten food, half full drinks, they could address the issue with maybe some traps of some description, sadly I was stung but it did not ruin my holiday.
The lighting around the complex could be better as it does get very dark.
All in all a fantastic hotel which I would definitely return.
