We stayed 4 nights at this beautiful hotel and were lucky to get access to the club lounge which is well worth paying extra for. All staff were very professional and polite in every area of the hotel. Food was excellent in the club lounge. Fantastic big gym if you're into your fitness while away. We will defiently be back one day in the near future!

10/10 Exceptional

THE BEST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN. I don’t normally write reviews but the hotel was amazing from the first minute. Ahmed the manager, Salim and Crystal at the front desk were very welcoming and upgraded us to an executive room with decorations and a cake on arrival. The housekeeping were so friendly and attentive especially Mohosin and Sohag. They always kept our room clean and made sure we was comfortable. The hotel itself is amazing. Big and well presented. The views were incredible but the best thing about the hotel was the staff! They really made the experience special. The breakfast was really good to with a wide selection of foods. Will definitely stay at this hotel again. Definitely a 5 star hotel, better then the 5* hotels in London.

4/10 Fair

2 of my 4-day stay was spent calling security for extremely loud noises. When they finally identified the source of the noise I was ready to change rooms. I booked a suite and went to the property ahead of time to verify, on the day of check-in it was not what I saw previously nor was it what was advertised in the photos.
