Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a family get away in December 2016. The hotel is large and well equipped - 3 swimming pools, a small gym, onsite restaurant, on site bar, ice cream bar. Hotel is popular with expat oil rig workers. The room was a good size and clean, bed was comfy. Air con stopped working at one point but the hotel sent someone out quite quickly to sort the problem, which was good. Good selection of local and international food options at breakfast. We only had dinner once at the restaurant - the food was okay, not brilliant. For us, the overall stay was fine, but other people in our group who had visited the hotel the year before picked up on a few areas where standards seemed to have dropped - for example no lifeguards at the pool area (where previously there had been continuous life guard presence); the linen used in the restaurant was of a lower quality (paper napkins instead of fabric); less hotel staff than previously etc. The children enjoyed staying here, mainly because of the swimming pools (so it was frustrating when the pool was closed one day for a private party). The beach is approx 10 minutes walk away, and there are a few bars on the beach selling drinks, food etc. Overall, a nice enough hotel, and staff are generally helpful. less
