The place is amazing, relaxing and quiet. Side view of a small lake with some greenery, reasonable pool with side bar, pool game and so on. You get free drinks for all exclusive booking, and ice-cream for kids. This i discovered as the stay moved on, but upon arriving i was welcomed with a-not-so-welcoming staff. Rooms are not that amazing,... More

My partner had seen this hotel advertised 3 years previously and had wanted to go there because of the family and friendly atmosphere and we were not disappointed. We had paid for a lagoon and pool view... More

the hotel experience is really poor but as the word poor is subjective let's say that it is a hotel that you should not pay more than 300EGP per night. the main advantage is the location at Downtown and very close to facilities like cafes, restaurants and supermarkets
