II've decided to post the not so good stuff as a point of balance for those looking to book this hotel as I myself appreciate a balanced view. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is very good and my 5yr old and 18 month old had a fabulous holiday, as did my wife and I. But most posters here have concentrated on the good, indeed the majority of these posts are absolutely correct, the hotel is great and I would definitely recommend the place for groups of families, kids, even the teenagers, as there is plenty to do.
So here's the not so good stuff:
The shallow childrens slide pool in the water park area has a lino flooring which is torn in areas and water has got underneath making walking in parts of it a bit uneasy, the hotel are aware of this and it definitely did not ruin my kids use of the pool, both used it all day, every day. I would not consider it dangerous, but it needs repairing. There are plenty of other pools too, it's just that this is the biggest and best kids one (age group up to about 7-8 years old).
I love good food. The food here is perfectly fine, but it isn't outstanding. We were here for a week and thought the variety was just about ok. We actually ate outdoors near the Asian bar and went in 3 or 4 of the restaurants to pick and choose certain dishes which you can easily do. The pool bar restaurant was being refurbished and there were temporary outdoor hotplates, which were just about ok. They carry out the refurbishments very quickly I understand. The choice in each restaurant is minimal, but there are 6 or 7 restaurants, so a good chance of finding a few thing you like.
The airport was busy on arrival, we knew this was the case before we arrived so we just made sure we got near the front first, it wasn't an issue for us even with small children.
Everyone seems to want a tip! But you simply do not have to if you don't want, just turn away if the put their hand out, neither I nor they, were offended. Albeit I did tip some, like the room cleaner.
Mosquitoes, you don't see many, but they see you. Plenty of people had been bitten, my wife had over 150 on her legs, while I had none.
We only had one plug socket in the room, it wasn't a major issue though.
I piece of advice, there is a cash machine in the foyer of the hotel, I got about 15% MORE than I did at Manchester Airport with my UK cash/ATM card. Take some English pound coins if you feel the need to tip or just get some Egyption Pounds while you are there.
