Food was not great in the evening however there was good choice around in the day afternoon tea a good idea . Water when arriving in the room would be a nice touch. When we arrived we were given bed and breakfast bands which should have been all inclusive so that was disappointing on the first day as we ended up paying for items which should have been Included

Nilufar, gb5 night family trip
Very good 8.0
A lot of good with bits of bad!
They put a plastic band around our wrist which was supposed to be there during our whole stay. This was strange considering that it did not have much use, since they would ask for the room number whenever we went to have breakfast, as well as to use the indoor pool. I mean there are many hotels that have pools and included breakfast (or all inclusive option) and they do not put a band around your wrist. About the location, we had a nice sea view. Also as we had hired a car, we did not try the public transport, but looking at buses that passed, it seemed to be many. Also the Aquarium was in walking distance, and there were plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. There were also many tour centers around that would take you to different attractions in their shuttles. Finding a parking was possible, but not always easy for us who had hired a car. One problems with the location were a bad smell (like sewage smell) at some times (not always. Another was them having very loud music until midnight (maybe later). Generally we were quite happy!
