I stayed 3 nights for a business meeting. The location and the sea is good. The rooms are quite spacious and have a view and balcony. The food was ok and the service was quite slow. There are a few hotels in the resort so we were able to dine at different locations.

It was lovely romantic get way for us specially after 2 years busy with the baby. It felt so excluded from the world and we really enjoyed our stay. The service could be improved but it didn't effect out visit much. Highly recommend to take the shuttle to the souq and Avenues mall!
