Relaxing holiday

Pools and activities, breakfast, location

After several weeks touring Europe and UK, it was wonderful to relax, get over any jet lag and do as we pleased at the resort. There were plenty of activities in which to be involved, I particularly enjoyed the pool volleyball, but there is the chance just to relax, unwind and soak up the friendly atmosphere. The location of this hotel right on the beachfront makes it quiet and the rooms are spacious and well furnished. The fruit platter and bottled water were also appreciated. The smorgasbord breakfast included everything anyone could want and the staff were always pleasant and friendly.

We booked this hotel as a new family with a 5 months old baby. The hotel did a great job accomodating our request for a baby cot, rental car recommendation and late checkout (although this required some discussion on the front desk, as on the first desk they confirmed and on the actual leaving day refused to know about it). They agreed to it in the end though. The hotel is very popular with tourists from Arabian countries and you may find yourself a little uncomfortable lying around in your bikini. It is however not a problem. The children pool was super busy with children and we therefore chose the normal pool facilities for our swim with the baby. Breakfast selection and availability are great, however you may choose to go for breakfast in the restaurant at the beach to avoid huge crowds. If you order drinks or food from the hotel restaurants we were disappointed. It was expensive and local dishes were not up to standard. We chose to go outside to the food court every evening for a wonderful dinner among locals and tourists alike. We were actually planning to choose the beach over the pool, although this didn't work out. the beach is nice, apart from the occasional jellyfish (nature :)) but i really hated the high number of jetskis and various water sports activities constantly going up and down the beach. the smell of gasoline didnt make this a nice experience.
