A blissful experience
A beautiful venue, website does not do justice to the atmosphere abd beauty. Loved the design, architecture, comfort, professional yet friendly staff- from management to maintenence. Lovely grounds, short walk to private beach too. Only downside was no outside pool due to refurbishment/maintenance during our stay but team working on it round the clock - quietly. Only other minor noise issue meant couldn't sleep with balcony door open die to a nearby discotheque playing loud music but that will be commmon for any resident in the area. The hotel complex offers every comfort, I highly recommend it. Spa was relaxing too. We dud camel ride and horse riding on the beach (additional cost), a day out with the hotel recommended guide Fathi who looked after us, he went above and beyond what was expected. Thank you sooo much Bechir, Besma (management) and the whole team, esp Feysal at breakfast too. Looking forward to visiting again.

8/10 Very good

Nice, but terrible location
Outside pool was under renovation. Overall a nice hotel. The downside is that is super far from everything and since it's a five star hotel, taxis will always overcharge you to take you to anywhere. There is no service of tour in the hotel, they only recommend one guy that is always busy. They don't help on that. The spa is great, hamman is te best service! I just don't recommend the manicure service, very bad and expensive.
