    Great resort but cleanliness requires attention

    Our room smelt of cigarettes, especially in the toilet. There was a lot of dust in our room and I believe a deep clean of all rooms is required. The Italian Riva restaurant was amazing, the food and service was exceptional. However, the Nahham Arabic restaurant require a lot more outdoor heaters, but the food and service is good.

    Beautiful Getaway

    The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very welcomin and friendly. The activities are all excellent and make for a good overall experience. The breakfast and dinner buffet restaurants are both excellent with fantastic range. The rooms were beautiful, but there was quite a lot of dust on the decor.

  • 6.0.Good

    The room was really amazing....if it was not for the fact the AC broke a few hours after checking in, and poured water down from the ceiling. Then it took the maintenance personal about an hour to come to the room and even look at it. We had to ask the manager to check us into another room. After that it was great, until there was a cable issue. Then the second room we where checked into was at the very end of the hotel with zero reception for the WiFi. So to make calls back to and receive calls from our families, we had to go out on the front balcony and walk down some. I called and notified the manger of everything and hope this will never happen again. I would expect something small in compensation, but we got nothing. All this for a resort we paid over $500 USD for one night is unacceptable!!
