These comments are from the 'A' part of AandJBerkshire. I'll try to be balanced because the Cataract has potential. Currently the Cataract is not prepared for the British, and has some wacky procedures. Firstly it has 'Cataract Time' which is one hour ahead of Egyptian time-get this wrong and you'll miss your dinner! Secondly beer is served from bottles into... More

Poor service, all signs in Italian,average food...but biggest issue was no hot water in room for 6/7 days spent. there .Lovely beach..but pool freezing..could not swim. Silly rule about drinks..only issued in small beakers wharever the beverage. Strange and inexplicable 'extra hour at this hotel who operate in an exclusive timezone...wierd! Not recommended.

I could not find any reviews in English on this hotel, so was weary. Anyways, the hotel is classed as a 4 star, but more like a modest 3 star. If you can't speak English, don't bother going to this hotel, it caters 99% for Italians. The food is hit and miss, usually bland pasta dishes with left overs from... More
