We were in awe before we even stepped through the front door! What a fantastic place! But you know a hotel is only as good is its employees and I want to start there! We had just come from Wadi Rum after having ridden camels for over 2 hrs, so were pretty dusty and hot and a little bit embarassed to arrive at such an amazing place looking like that. Well, the most amazing staff member called "Dulcie' greeted us with a smile and we shared a laugh over our appearance, and she organized to get us into our room as soon as possible. When you meet someone so welcoming, lovely and down to earth you automatically fall in love with your surroundings!.... I felt like I had made a friend already!!.... And as for another staff member who was a delight worked at the bar near the beach, wish I could remember his name he was from the Phillippines and we laughed the whole time time we were at lunch - what a pleasure it was!....
Now for the hotel, what a view!!!! what a pool!!!! what a room!!!!!!... Loved the welcoming fruit basked, loved the free mini bar! We had a huge room with a wonderful view over the water, the room also had a large balcony where we sat daily to enjoy our surroundings. . The only thing we didn;'t like was as mentioned by others, was the blind into the bathroom even when it was down you could see everything going on inside. At night we learned not to turn the light on in the bathroom, just leave the room light on so enough light was reflecting inside- not the ideal thing but it worked. I love my husband but don't enjoy seeing everything he is doing!!!
I would absolutley stay here again and would recommend this to anyone who will listen to me!!!
