We spent two weeks in the larger of the two appartments (seahorse) in April with two children and a baby. Toby and Fi were amazing, really friendly and especially helpful and supportive when we were stuck there a few extra days due to Volcano ash problems. I would recommend it for family with kids without hesitation. The garden is really safe for them to run around , the so called Jacuzzi is big enough to be used as a pool by them. The shop is only 100 meters away and has everything you might need (even nappies, wipes, baby milk and food). We used the beach at Panda Hotel every day. They charge 25LE per adult (nothing for kids) and the food in the cafe is great so we had lunch there everyday. The beach attendant was really friendly and played with our kids most of the time. We also let them use the playground at the next door Ibeya hotel where they made friends with other kids. Fi and Toby's recommendations for restaurants were all really good. All in all, we thought that Bedouins and Egyptians there were really chilled, loved kids and were very welcoming. Even shop keepers were friendly and not trying too hard to get us to their shop. Taxi drivers really friendly as well. I can't fault anything and am going back next year.
