Family stay
The service was very poor and obviously understaffed for the number of guests. The hotel is really nice with a special vibe but it is a little outdated. Food was expensive and with an average quality. Check in took sometime. Beach was very clean. Good for families with young children

4/10 Fair

Amazing Establishment - BUT Poor Service
We originally had booked 2 rooms. Both rooms were given late. 1st room 8020 and then one hour later 8012. We also requested both rooms be next to each other when we initially booked the rooms from Hotels.com. Also we did not get the view from the room which we originally had booked for (Deluxe Room) which we paid extra for. Then after getting the key to 8020 - as we were walking to van to take us to the room, I noticed where my luggage was on the trolley, there was also someone else's garments which were on top of my luggage - to be exact it was on top of my 7 month old's foldable bed. In current conditions with COVID, this was very appalling. I raised the concern to the attendant who was putting other peoples garments on top of my luggage - at which the attendant completely ignored my concern. Then I went back into the reception and raised the issue, and also raised the issue with Ibrahim (Front end manager). The difficult part was obtaining a van to take us to and from the beach + pool. Waiting time was ridiculous as we had to make several calls because we had a children 5yrs and below with us, walking in the heat was difficult for them. At one point when we were taken from beach back to our rooms - the driver made another stop to pick up additional guests to pack the vehicle. Now this is another COVID precaution red flag - especially with a newborn in the vehicle the driver was mixing up guests.
