Stay away from this hotel because it’s completely full of aggressive Russian tourists who hate kids and other nations.. our family were deeply disappointed with their rude behavior, full night shouts end alcohol drinking.. they didn’t let our kids to play billiard nor even to stay nearby.., what a shame! .. poor Russians.. please note that real Faith of Nation is reflected in relations to their kids ... you are still so far.. the only person we liked was Alfia on reception who was really helpful and kind. The food was normal.
Just got home from 2 weeks there. The first few days were bearable. Downhill fast after that.Cons... The maid wanted in our room every morning at 8am. We asked for a DND sign, but we were told they don't have any. Only left the resort 2 times. Sketchy place. Prostitutes, dirty on the street with garbage, people snotting & spitting everywhere, pushy shop owners "what are you going to buy from me". There is no coffee available between 9pm-7am, no pop or alcohol before 10am either. No cappuccino or latte anywhere. Only 1 bar (10am-2am) that was a long way from the beach, so needless to say was busy always. And only 1 restaurant that was always either out of food, or it was cold. There is a grill for a burger or hotdog from 4-5pm, if you like that kind of food, but be prepared to stand in line for 1/2 hr or more. Our shower only piddled water that was cold. Several times there was NO water.The sellers on the beach were extremely annoying. Every 5 seconds (sometimes more than 1 at a time) "want to buy: massage, towel, bracelets/necklaces, cigarettes, CIALIS??!" Over & over & over. Christmas Eve, they put on a large smorg around the pool. By the time we got up to it there wasn't even any plates!! Let alone food. The last 10 days were horrible. Christmas Day & Boxing day, a couple new plane loads arrived. They spit on the ground & every where on beach, blew their noses straight onto ground & into the beach towels, they pushed & shoved at meal time, were over greedy, leaving lots of food on their plates that went in garbage. They were like starving dogs. Disgusting.Pros... Hot sunshine, and clear ocean water. (if you don't see the gross people doing their nose thing..ewww) The bartender in training, she was really nice. She knew what we wanted. And 1 hostess in restaurant went above to help us feel cared for. She even brought me a special appetizer on my 50th birthday (Dec.25th) because, once again, there was no table or food after the hoarders had swarmed. We've never been more happy to return to -35 Celsius. Never will we go back.

We are still here actually waiting for our transfer and the italian Manager just asked us to share our holiday online and we are going to do it because really they deserve it.Great mention to him, he was everywhere (Reception, beach, bar, restaurant, around the swimming pool) always taking care of all the guests.A special mention to the Animation too, young guys all hardworkers with lovely results!Food is good, cocktail too.Thank you so much to all the staff for what they did for us.Sadly it s time to go home now!
