I'm new to trip adviser. Nice hotel. Great location next to the Red Sea. Food ok. Just spent our time snorkelling. Fantastic! Aircon In rooms not the best, once the Egyptian sun had been beating down all day it wasn't up to the task.

we stayed for 5 night, food and drinks quality was good, room service is below normal as our room air condition was not working properly, staff is not at the targeted level especially in the restaurant. Location generally is good, Animation team was interesting and nice.

I have read other recent reviews on here and can only say this - WE HAD A GREAT HOLIDAY HERE- don't want to tell you about it - since it will get too crowded. Holidays are what you make them - some people are never happy -... More

After flying for some 5 and 1/2 hours with Thomson with no entertainment apart from the cabin crew selling drinks and snacks, (no meals with Thomson!), we arrive at Hurghada airport. Now the fun begins. Total chaos! Toilet cleaners block entry to the toilets... More
