Four Stars was enough for my overall rating for this resort, but because of the many bad comments, I added another star, in order to create some balance, which this outstanding resort deserves.
Of course it is not a five-star hotel, so do not expect to be treated as a king, but expect that they will try to satisfy you in every way.
4 nights in this resort was special and I have spent a good time.
It all started when we arrived to the hotel 3 hours before our (check-in), everything went fast, thanks to Mr.Haitham (reception), but unlucky we found ourselves in a room with no view at all, we can see the sea, but not the beach and another hotel under construction, but because we don't care much to stay in the room, we didn't ask to change, it was noisy in the early morning when workers start to do their job, but on the other side it helps me to woke up early to spend the day.
the bathroom was narrow, but no problems with the hot water or the towels, maybe it's color was a shock and funny "GREEN" !!
There was no diversity in food, especially salads and desserts, they do one kind of rice and another soup, If you're a fan of junk food, you will enjoy the pizza, kabab (shawerma), hot dogs, pasta, fries, chicken panee..etc.
The taste was Ok, and the restaurant is big and got good views to enjoy while you are there. schedule for the restaurant, was sufficient in order not to miss meals and do not feel hungry throughout the day.
There are two other restaurants belongs to the hotel, one of them Asian, and the other is italian. Hotel gives you the experience to try one of them once free, the Asian restaurant i experienced was good
there is 3 small swimming pools, with warm water (not enough warm), but some people managed to swim..... the atmosphere was very mild during the day and the sun is shining, but some breeze make you feel cold, but, of course, this problem is not for Russians.
you can access the other neighbor resort's swimming pool, it's much bigger.
The problem was to find enough seats to lie down under the sun.
As for the beach, it was great and very close to the hotel, and multiple places to enjoy the sun and some small fences that keep privacy, and working to fend off the cold air.
You will find there many offers for many activities and not expensive, such as sea sports, diving, riding camels and horses in the desert in a whole tour or a simple round at the beach, there you will find 2 bars and a volley ball playground.
The animation team was good and active, especially those I have dealt with them (shady, Neely, Mira)
many things to do during the early morning, like gymnastics and playing darts, afternoon there will be aqua-gymnastics, Volley ball, Football, aerobics, and some times there will be entertaining shows.
at night, exactly 9:45 every day at neighbor resorts's disco .. there is a show for the kids, then DJ maestro turn it on for dancing all night.
The main point, which almost convince me to give a bad assessment for this hotel, is the day were there was a concert Dec. 7, entrance fee was $15, i paid a lot of money for (A/I), i should be allowed to all the events inside the hotel, without paying even one extra penny. lucky you're i am forgivable, but let people decide if they want to go to a place let them pay "again" to spend the night.
not serving mineral water in the room, only you can drink from the coolers around the hotel, is not also a good point.
cheap drinks at the bars are normal, but wasn't a good point too.
i didn't try the spa or the beauty center, so i cant judge.
no internet service for free, another bad point.
there you can find some good photographers offers taking you a picture for about 3$, if you're interested.
the hotel guest mostly were from, Russia, Ukraine, Deutsche, and few dutch, most of them cant speak English but they were fun, i did some friendships.
me and my friend were the only Egyptians i think.
if you are a family with children, this place will be great for you, also if you are a group of friends.
all the staff can speak at least 3 languages, so don't worry about 'dealings'.
The hotel is very spread out so make sure you ask about the location of the rooms. Noise levels can...
