I was here with a friend and the place looks good. The service though was not up to standard and the food was not attractive. The view of the waters is quite spectacular. The environment is serene and peaceful

A beautiful place, with very friendly staff. Loved the activities the staff had for all the visitors. From water aerobics, tennis, beach volleyball, table tennis, beach walks, canoeing, snorkeling and night entertainments. My kids had fun at the kids club with Zuhura who they still mention. The rooms were beautiful too. Food was delicious and of variety.
