Guaranteed sunshine, clear skies & no rain or humidity @ Red Sea at this time of year; temp's 35-40 degrees, but... More

Arriving at the hotel, it was dark so didn't get a look at the area. It was quick check in. And the luggage was delivered to our rooms quickly. The rooms are tired and need a update. But clean. We travelled all inclusive and was then told if we wanted tea and coffee in our room we would have to... More

The hotel has an excellent beech, plenty of room between sunbeds and fantastic coral reefs to explore entering the sea from the beach. Excellent location for visiting the valley of the kings. The IDive Centre is on site and Carlo and Erika head up a fantastic team of professional staff all passionate about diving and snorkelling. Thank you to instructors... More
