We had heard that this hotel was rated second to The Four Seasons, but it is certainly is in the better location, with terraced pools and gardens down to the beach, and we could not have been better looked after.The hotel staff were all so helpful, welcoming and almost invariably smiling.The previous review has desribed in detail the facilities and amenities, with which we would absolutely agree. The routine at the pools was the best we have ever encountered. On arriving, the staff would help to choose the best position for loungers, and constantly check to see if one was happy, and readjust as required. Supervising their patch, they made sure that early arrivals didn't dump their towels, and then disappear. The various pools and waterfalls made for interesting swimming, but surprisingly, few adults entered the pools.
We had arranged to stay in an "upper" room, down at the sea front, which was beautifully appointed, and the view as good as you would get of the Red Sea.However, the rooms in our block numbered in the 7 series only experienced the sun earlier in the day, and those in the adjacent 6 series, positioned at an angle, would have enjoyed it for longer in the day.There is however quite a long and relatively steep climb from these sea side rooms up to the main hub of the hotel, including the restaurants, and although it is through stunning gardens, I was glad that I had already had my hip replacement.
The restaurants were first class. Breakfast, as described by many reviewers, provided everything you would want. Surprisingly for a hotel of this quality, there was only one restaurant with table service,the Thai restaurant, which from our experience of many Thai restaurants was outstanding. The main restaurant provided a themed menu from a different nationality each night, and provided great variety and choice. The "Souk" restaurant, with live entertainment, had a great atmosphere, and a choice of menus,from Chinese, Italian, seafood (the lobster was expertly cooked and reasonably priced), and a mix and match possibility.Being on an extended half board basis, we found it impossible to exceed our allotted amount of money, despite eating heartily without any restriction. We will return again next year.
