This hotel is extremely old fashioned and a big black mark on name of Holiday Inn. Don't expect any sort of frendliness in service, teh decor simply reminds me of 1990's. There is very less maintainance done and to my surprise, the rooms still contain CRT TV! rather than LCD.... and it comes out of cabinet with a sliding tray!! Like its a big treasure hidden inside.... The hotel staff is not well dressed at all
Though it i big, but still the breakfast is served at a smll poolside restuarant, where even you have to queue sometime to wait for your turn... toiliteries are of some pathetic brand and same is case with in-room appliances. Location is good an central but there are better options in the area.
Even though the hotel is right on the beach, there are no services provided at teh beach, you go at your risk, and there is not even a sunlonger bed provided at beach. The hotel needs a big rennovation in my opinion and a total change of staff.
Good for families who are not quality concious... you see a lot of Arab people here.
