Very large clean rooms with great views, but needs a little updating. On the banks of the Nile. Great restaurant, Kebabgy, for dinner. Delicious, very reasonable North African cuisine. Get the mixed grill, where it is cooked at your table. The mixed appetizer is fantastic. Another restaurant, Sud, had the best breakfast buffet we have ever encountered, anywhere in the... More

This was a lovely vacation, staff were friendly and polite. Our room was clean and spacious, the bathroom was lovely. Their pool was also clean and there were plenty of beds to sunbathe and relax around the pool area. Food was also good and plenty of choices. Would stay here again.
