Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 February 2017

Staff are very friendly throughout the hotel. Lovely little get away a 5 year old. He loved the Chess set, trampoline and Sand Surfing. The pool was clean and the drink selection offered on the All inclusive package was more than substantial.

The hotel was well sign posted and the email directions were clear enough.

We would definitely be back again. Thank you

Room Tip: The ground floor room gives easy access straight out to the pool.

Excellent value for money - nothing new or fancy, but quiet, nice, clean and super friendly service. Really good beds, great balcony and a very good buffet dinner.
Breakfast was ample and included in the already low rate and the awesome burger for lunch was just that. We'll be back!

The hotel interiors (rooms, lobby, restaurants) are beautiful and in excellent conditions. Probably they have been renewed recently. All in all, inside you feel comfortable everywhere.
Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the exteriors, as they need some serious refurbishment. In principle, the facilities outside can be amazing, as I saw at least a large swimming pool, a children swimming pool, tennis/basketball courts, a small football pitch, a huge playground, but all needs some refurbishment.
The personnel is very kind and fast in supporting all request.
I would definitively come here again for a week end while enjoying the amazing dunes of Liwa.

Booked this hotel on a quick weekend getaway with teenager kids and family friends. It's an old but well maintained hotel. Strong Wifi signal in every room, lobby and restaurant. Nice pool with lifeguard on duty. There's ping-pong table on the recreation room. There's a pool table but in the bar, so kids can't play there. There are 'villas' accommodation too, in case you want to bring extended family or friends to stay here. Parking is easy and I prefer a ground floor room for easy frequent access to lobby and my car.

Breakfast is included for two persons, kids up to 12 yo pay half price, older than that pay full price.

Staff are friendly although the check in and check out is slow due to some miscommunications with the booking agency. Apparently in the certain days close to festive seasons the price is increased significantly, so watch out for that.

It is probably worth to mention that this hotel is located up the hill with no other building around it, so you always want to reach it or leave it by car.
