We love diving and snorkeling and noticed that "Diving centre" is close by the pool. Guys were great and prices were normal... More

If you are looking for dirty beach, poor smelly rooms, disgusting food with green color, go there! This hotel is a big shame. We stayed only one night and than asked our representative for other hotel! Stayed in june 2011.

I am quite happy to read such a bad comments because thought maybe only we had that terrible experience in this hotel. During our 2 weeks trip to Egypt we stayed in different hotels and all of them were fine except this one, room was not too bad but the athmosphere at the reception as well as in the restaurant...

I've never seen a more dirty and miserable hotel lobby;but... More

Ok, firstly, we WANTED a cheap and cheerful holiday, and booked with a little less thought that what we should have. The hotel itself is 2 star at best if comparing to a typical UK hotel, so do not be fooled by 3* rating. The hotel itself offers very little in the form of entertainment/excursions and what they do have... More
