Great location, beautiful property, nice rooms, awesome beach. Very pricey when it comes to food and beverage so we avoided purchasing from the hotel. There is a mini market nearby where we got water and snacks from. We ate out most days for half the price minimum. Iron in the rooms were faulty changed 4 irons until I gave up and decided to wear something else that did not require ironing. Staff was very accommodating and helpful with our needs, with the exception of a concierge staff Wellington who when we ordered a taxi accommodated others first whom requested it after we did, for what we can only assume was due to better tips from those individuals. Also DM Youssef could do better with acknowledging people and saying hello when guests are passing by the desk, I tried to say hello to him a few times but he would not acknowledge us and he was even slightly condescending on one occasion when talking to me. Everyone one else was amazing and provided great customer service. I had requested a quiet room and they were amazing and accommodated our request and provided exactly what we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Would definitely return.

This is a really nice hotel. Provides good value on the palm. Youssef at reception provided wonderful service. He saw how tired I was from my stay at my previous hotel and was kind enough to provide me with a free upgrade to a sea view room. He also mentioned the VIP benefits I was due to receive without me having to prompt him. Breakfast is a really good experience but staff could be more attentive. Poolside is wonderful and relaxing with many varieties of food and drink.

Beware of the jellyfish
We enjoyed our stay however it wasn’t very clear that this was a non alcohol wellness hotel. The hotel next door however made us welcome at there bar both during the day and in the evenings. There were jellyfish in the swimming area at the beach so beware as a few people got badly stung myself included.

Lovely hotel, amazing staff. Great vibe and energy. Sea view was amazing as well. I can’t even complain, really excellent hotel! I did think that the fact that it was a wellness-first and family-first retreat could have been clarified in the listing. Other than that, it was amazing!

This hotel is highly recommended. The guys in the front desk is amazing, shout out to Yousef, Chris and Almsek( hope I got his name right) we’re so accommodating and gave us a room upgrade. The facility is immaculately clean, staff are courteous. The breakfast is awesome, with lots of food choices. The beach is also beautiful! Manbrook! To the management, please keep it up and take care of your great people there. Indeed, it’s an awesome “Retreat” for us.
