                        The Fairmont was spacious and felt luxurious. The staff were exceptionally helpful and delightful. The room was very functional and worked well and we liked the design of the bathroom, and the beautiful view over the mosque. It was also a great environment for photographs. We very much enjoyed the happy hour bar and the food at Frankies which was exceptional. Breakfast was also a treat.

                        In the three days that we were there (over two stays) there was one time that we found that the fruit dish had not been washed. Also the room scales were very inconsistent (room 439) which was a little bit of a bother when weighing our luggage for our onward travel leg.

                        Honest, I liked the hotel excellent location for proximity to the sea and the beautiful landscape and the way the hotel staff treated me

                        Does not have anything I did not like during my stay in the same hotel, everything was excellent

                        I loved the Seafood Buffet on Thursday nights, service was fantastic, food was great and a very relaxed atmosphere.

                        I did not think the reception staff were very accommodating, we had friends stay the night before and were very impressed, but because we were there on a long weekend, they really didnt try to add that extra value to the service, even though we would be returned guests - they didnt seem to care.

                        Everything about this hotel is first rate. The staff personally greeted us by name every time we saw them, and were genuinely interested in talking with and assisting us. The facilities were beautiful and the club floor is certainly worth paying extra for. I have no complaints about this hotel, would stay here again in an instant and recommend other travelers to do the same. Thanks to the hotel for a hotel experience that is everything it claims to be. Recommend visitors go to Chameleon Bar and Frankies restaurant where the amazing service and quality continues.

                        We loved this hotel. On arrival we upgraded to the Gold Lounge and found it excellent. The original room was just as good, but we were several stories higher and the view was amazing. The added extras of free wifi, fabulous breakfast and canopies with evening drinks were terrific. You can also have afternoon tea but we didn't make it during our stay. The pool area is very good with staff bringing cold water, icy towels and fruit kebabs at regular intervals. The swim up bar is also fun. Fortunately they cool the pool so it is very refreshing in 40C heat. Not so the sea which was like hot bath water. We ate in most of the restaurants and found them very good. Cheap by OZ standards.

                        The most wonderful hotel we have ever stayed in! We were so impressed with every aspect of the hotel..from the minute we arrived at the airport we were greeted by a friendly face who whisked us off to the hotel. the reception knew our names before we even checked in! the hotel room was amazing, the food delicious and the pool was great for kids too..cant wait to return.
