Beautiful hotel, All rooms have sea views, beautiful irregular swimming pools, pretty well-kept garden. The hotel grounds are very extensive, there is plenty of space, the hotel is huge, the restaurant also. Food ok always something good you can find. Rooms cleaned thoroughly every day left a few dollars tip. We had 10 minutes to Naama bay (taxi)

Overall the stay was good....but there was too much egyptian guests with extremely inappropriate behaviours on the pool and in the buffet stealing food to outside .....which was really embarressing.......the guest quality was low may be due to new travel packages which made this kind of people enter this hotel and later on can harm its reputation.....select your guest please...

Overall it's a nice place to stay, nice swimming pool, food is ok, apparently all tourists are Russians. The beach front needs more attention specially for diving lovers. a very tiny place to use for going to the water, needs to be bigger place as corals are all over the beach and really nice view for snorkeling fans.
