Trip was from 21/7/2013 till 26/7/2013, Hotel is very good, lobby is always very crowded but staff is doing excellent effort to satisfy all guests, the beach is very large, while you can only use a very small area via a wooden passage.
Animation team is very good, despite a bad personal experience with my 7 year old, as they treat Egyptian kids differently than non Egyptians.
I had two rooms, the bungalow type, and one of them had a problem with ants, but housekeeping took care of it as soon as we asked.
Diving centre was very good at organizing a trip, while the diving instructor (Islam) was very young, and did not pay attention that all divers were 40+, so self (got sever mask squeeze), a Dutch (bleeding nose) and a Russian (sever dizziness) suffered several injuries resulting clearly from not having enough time to equalize pressure.
Chinese tourists are the worst, one of them spit on the floor at the main restaurant, while another attempted to enter the restaurant dressed in bathroom towel only, while there were clear instructions on the restaurant entrance
Billiards room was very much neglected, and we had to look for the entrance until we found out that you have to go in from the Café’s cashier door.
The overall experience was good, children had a good time, and the elderly found the golf carts to be very helpful as the hotel is large.
