On returning for another holiday at this resort for a beach, spa and golf holiday we have left with plans already for returning next January and for longer too! The golf course (thought suffering from a lot of rain) was in superb condition and now that golf carts are included in the New All Inclusive PREMIUM package it makes life a lot easier. No hidden charges.All requests made by us were immediately addressed and delivered in professional and caring way. You can't ask for more than that! We have come home feeling refreshed, cared for by excellent staff and well fed! The F & B team is well informed and keep a good eye on what people want, dislike or want changed. Not an easy task when some holiday makers can be so unnecessarily rude. Well done. Read less

7 Time repeat visit to Awali. Always a friendly pleasant experience . Staff willing and want to please the guests. A tropical very hot climate at this time of the year can be a challenge . The staff remain customer focused doing their utmost to achieve a good experience. Food selection remains varied and improving each time we holiday here. Golf course suffered by the tropical storms, staff attempted their best course of action to get players up and in the course without damaging it . Unpredictable global weather patterns are in no ones control . Would highly recommend this venue Read less

We are lucky to be able to have returned for our third visit to Awali and we we were not disappointed, in fact i think the place has improved if that was possible. Last year we had a few slight niggles about the service this year we had no such concerns, the staff are amazing, friendly and the food was excellent with some of the best beef fillet we have ever had always cooked as requested, the whole place just makes you feel relaxed. We love it here because it is relatively small but still has everything you could want. I think the best way to describe it is relaxed quality. All being well we will be back again soon. Read less
