6/10 Good

It was probably the best hotel for the amount of money we paid. Its definitely not luxurious or anything. There is no AC except in the hotel room. The food buffet is terrible, wet bread, rice and chicken every day. The breakfast doesn't even have real bread, ham and cheese or anything like that. Its better to just book the hotel and eat in the restaurants right next to it. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean.

Things that I liked: staff responsiveness, room size, comfy bed and pillows, internet speed and connectivity. Things that I didn't like: the buffet didn't have enough varieties, the bath towels were not fresh and overly recycled. These could be better.

Great Property poor staff focus - Customer Service
Great property for an open island stay Excellent location with options for sports activities and restaurants very close to the hotel The hotel has its private beach, well maintained & great view from the hotel Customer service needs a complete revisit. Due to the dominant position of Kaani Palm hotel, staff only focused on add-on sales but not focused on customer service. Poor communication skills lead to staff becoming too argumentative and over-explaining why requests or services can not be provided rather than helping customers. Issues faced: - When we booked almost 3 month+ early, we requested all 3 rooms to be next to each other. No acknowledgment at the time of check-in and the staff explained too long why the request is a request and should not have expected it to be honored rather than look for it. - Poor check-in experience since it took almost half an hour for the front desk to check in as they fumbled over each other to check in. - The TV did not work for 3 days (in our 3 rooms booked) and none of the staff solved it after continuous complaints each day. (Probably this is because each connection cost money and staff was not interested to hence solve it) - Specific office staff (Kadir) assigned for our 3 rooms- once he got the tip after dropping our first day. Only checked once for booking excursions but any issue was reported he just ignored We used iCom company (close to resort) for transportation and water excursions (much cheaper & excellent)

I really the hotel, it is in front of the best beach on the island (bikini beach), food is okay and Tours are fun. The hotel is very small but well maintained. Rooms are medium size and very clean and comfortable beds. Drinking bottle Waters given everyday. Staff is very nice, helped to get my luggage from the airport the next day. Area is nice, whole are is safe to walk at night. The island is very small and can see it all in 20 mins. Kaani hotels are a chain with few hotel in the island, next to each other. I have stayed in another one before but this one is defiantly worth paying the extra money. I really recommend this hotel and I would stay here again if I come back. I would probably do tours and meals outside just because are cheaper but the hotel has the convenience of having it right there without leavings the property.
