I do not normally put pen to paper but in the interests of balance and fairness I felt that I had to.I was very surprised at the experience of the family mentioned previously as it was the total opposite of mine.Having stayed at Sheik Salem many times both solo and with my children I have never encountered cockroaches,lack of towels,dirty sheets etc. If I had done I certainly would not have returned.I have also met many families staying there who were very happy .The location is fantastic being right on the beach.It is also very peaceful and quiet as it is not on the main strip which is just a few minutes walk away.It is mainly staffed by very friendly Bedouins which gives the guest an intro to their culture and way of life.In addition it is run in a very honest way with no attempt at rip offs which does happen in many places. I can heartily recommend it for a lovely holiday.
