Well, it's difficult to sense the flavor of real Algeria in a place like this, a 5* international chain hotel. It is a huge monstrous building which is a small self-sufficient town almost, secured and surrounded by walls, but with open access to the beach. The location is no doubt magnificent, although very far from the city, but the beachfront is a bliss. There is a large garden, open and indoor swimming pools, a night club, several restaurants and bars, a gym, tennis playgrounds, business centre, a bank, souvenir shop, hairdresser, conference halls, and over 400 guest rooms plus fancy tres chic penthouses and de luxe suits and rooms.
BUT... there is a terrible sour smell, it is impossible to keep the windows open, the canalisation is so badly resolved. There is a canalisation river coming out of the hotel and entering the sea only about 50m away, and the wind that usually blows towards the hotel from the canalisation permanently carries the foul smell, not only to the beach but all over, to the room and gardens and tennis playgrounds and simply everywhere!
Another bizarre thing is that there is a mass of maids circulating the room all day long.One person brings the towels, another one cleans,the third brings the little bottles, the fourth refills mini-bar, and so on.It never ends!And they keep on coming, even in the evening!So if you don't put DO NOT DISTURB sign on your door, you can beautifully expect housekeeping at 9-10pm or so!
However, security is very efficient. Once I was followed by the guy who entered the hotel and wasn't a guest nor he had some business in the hotel, he was simply lurking for women and pretended to be part of the hotel circulation. My guess is he felt lonely on the Valentine's Day (that's when it happened) and sought some female company, and where better than in a fancy hotel.He almost harassed me (I fought back!) and reported to hotel security, he was caught immediately and they took the problem very seriously,made an alarm in entire hotel and kept apologizing endless times.
Nice hotel with courteous staff.
Had some problems getting hot water on the shower, but not on the tub... so I took more baths than usual.
Unique Quality: Indoor pool was nice in the winter.
The gym is packed in the afternoons.
Nice complex for running.
very good food in all the restaurants Algerian, French, Italian and Mexican.
