    Unsatisfactory”

    On our arrival it took so long to check in because we had to consecutive bookings as we could not amend the first one made on Agoda and had to make a second. We requested our breakfast to be served to the room instead of going to the dining room and was not told that this is charged separately even though we paid for a b&b. So we paid twice for breakfast. The room was only serviced when we called reception to send someone as the service button did not work. We went to the pool where there were only 6 umbrellas for about 100 people. People were so unhappy and arguing about umbrellas. Staff did nothing about this whilst we were there and I believe the situation is still the same. Our car was damaged in the valet parking and no one took responsibility for it. All in all, we will never return. We like the location and the nearness to the restaurants, but that is all. Very disappointed. Paid far too much for the breakfast we already paid for and this without being informed.

    A Gulf Apart”

    Meticulous service, very well-appointed rooms and excellent location. Bear in mind I got a good deal from Agoda otherwise it is pricey. Cons are difficult to find parking space and an annoying habit of both bellboy and reception calling you to check everything is ok. Not great when you are asleep! Please ask guest at reception if they need this. Otherwise particular praise to Carolina and Tanya for their service

    Great Stay”

    The facilities, staff, and pool are wonderful. However, the checkin and checkout procedures took far too long. It seemed to take the staff 10 minutes or longer to check-in or checkout a guest. The hotel was fairly busy for the long weekend and we had to wait about 40 minutes just to check-in to be told the room wasn't ready. Otherwise, our stay was very enjoyable.
