Poor value

The Anantara is perched on top of Jabal Akhdar, a 35 minute drive up the Side of a mountain. I am a novice driver and didn't find it difficult, just utilise low gear and take your time.

The options at both Bella Vista and the main restaurant are nearly identical and rather limited for an upmarket resort. The service was slow, very slow. Our cold meze starters took 25 minutes to arrive. Our hot meze took half an hour and had been fried from frozen as the middle was still cold.

Hence, our bicycles are now offered on complimentary for our guests to enhance guest offering. Your comments about your dining experience have also been shared with the team to ensure that this is covered on our continuous training and improvements. Thank you once again for taking the time to review us and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again to our resort. With kind regards, Darren Darwin General Manager
