    very bad experience
    I consider myself paid lots of money In front of nothing. I am not recommending anybody to go.

    Fair 4.0
    Too early to enjoy staycations
    To be fair the major influence is the fact that the COVID-19 conditions made it very difficult to enjoy. We were relegated to pool or room and restricted restaurant services So we did not even stay the night. A case of wrong timing.

    Very Bad Stay.
    Dears, My experience was very bad, this was my first visit to this hotel and unfortunately it will be the last, and here I will mention a few points : 1- The room was smelly and dusty. 2- The Tv signal was lost and there was no channels at all 3- The Sink was broken and whole was blocked adding to that we found that the water that is coming from the water faucet was yellow! means not clean. 4- The service was very poor due to the current circumstances so it was taking like 20 - 25 mins to get car for transportation between the rooms and the Main restaurant or to the beach. 5- My wife passed out due to the heat on the beach and they didn't send a car to pick us from there for more than 35 mins!! more than 5 calls to reception and no response. IN the end I had to check out 1 day before my check out due to this poor service.

    Resort is beautiful THATS IT
    -Resort is gorgeous - service is poor, you have to request things numerous times - choice of restaurants is poor, both food quality and service, overpriced - spa (massage) is poor, unprofessional and very over priced Overall, the resort is gorgeous. However, the whole thing is overpriced. The service is poor, so is the food quality and options as well as the massage spa. Essentially, you’re paying high premium prices for not premium services. That’s my honest review. Would not repeat.
