Excellent hotel and service. Beautiful lobby, the best in the world. Very nice a Deluxe room, but a small bathroom. Excellent buffet breakfast and dinner. We tried Seafood and Arabic Nights. High quality food and service at Turkuaz and Chinamood restaurants. Very nice area around the hotel, but the beach is wild. After all it’s a great place to stay.
