8/10 Very Good

The wash sink and shower clogged up several times.

8/10 Very Good

A gorgeous Arabic-influenced palace, with spa services and nice pools facing the sea, supported by friendly and attentive staff. Overall still overpriced for what it offers. The Italian restaurant is great but the other main one was under renovation; great international tv channel selection; would have enjoyed a morning newspaper and a room service menu in the room. On the way to become a 5 star hotel for sure, but except the price, not there yet. It surely will be with time. Overall a very pleasant and memorable stay, but a notch too expensive.
