We were greeted on arrival and checked in swiftly. As always, the room was lovely and spotlessly clean. Staff are attentive and polite and so helpful. Breakfast was a pleasure - socially distanced and calm. The food was very nice and lots to choose from. We look forward to our next stay.

Special mention to Badir of the reception who welcomed us warmly as regular guests and me as a platinum Ambassador, Chris of Belgian Cafe who is extremely kind and accomodating, Melanie of Selections who is consistently wonderful, Nirmal of Aquarius who has been amazingly helpful, and last but definitely not the least, to our favorite Duty Manager - Amr Tarek who has always been there to ensure that we have the best hotel experience and always take the extra mile to make us feel most comfortable.
