We have just arrived back after a week's stay in this hotel. Firstly, I want to start on the positives... the pool is amazing and so is the beach and sunbeds. The bed was very comfortable and the view from our room over the pool and beach was lovely. Only thing i would say is the bathroom could do with updating, well in our room only really the bath itself, mirrors and hairdryer etc were great. Staff were mostly great, cleaners and waiters etc. were very tentative.
Our main and only real problem was the food and all inclusive package which has left us disappointed (and hungry!) however I have just been reading some of the recent reviews so I am very confused now as it seems it is only us that has had problems! We were given information on arrival about where we could eat etc. No mention of the Terrace Restaurant at all so on our first night we ended up in the Ouyon, which just caters for the Russian guests - we were so hungry we went to the reception to ask where we could get a snack and only then did we find out about the Terrace Restaurant, we went there and had dinner, the food was great and staff were brilliant. On the sheet it said that breakfast was served in the main restaurant so we went there, again only catering for Russian guests so we skipped breakfast - we only found out the the Terrace served breakfast on day 4 and when we did have it there it was great! Lunch, again I have no idea apart from the pool bar and main restaurant where you can eat, we thought you could eat at the beach bar but there was never anyone serving food there just drinks so we only ate at the pool bar, the food was good but not much variety for the week. Soweto bar according to our sheet was all inclusive after 10pm, we went and there twice and were told both times we couldn't have a drink on our all inclusive package and would have to pay. So all in all we are still confused, some of the reviews say you can eat in places that we couldn't when we were there. We barely ate in the hotel or drank in the evenings, the wine you could only drink with a meal in the restaurant and it was a battle to get a drink in amongst the Russians at the little bar in the corner! We met with hotel staff half way through the week and told them all of this and they still didn't explain to us where we could and couldn't eat/drink just listened to what we had to say and then told us about their 'Be a Sultan' package, so we gave up and ate out and went to Soho Square for drinks. I think they need to make it clearer what is available. I wouldn't stay again as when we book an all inclusive package we want to be able to eat/drink pretty much when you want and what you want not hunt out food and drink and for it to be so restrictive! Would be interested to hear anyone else opinion about where we/if went wrong on this!
