We spent Christmas week at the Premier Romance as a family of two adults and three early twenties. The experience was extremely positive. The accommodation is of good quality and the overall style and decor of the hotel is in keeping with a 5 star hotel. We all agreed that it was an excellent time of year to visit Egypt as the temperature was warm, yet comfortable. Also, the hotel was not overly busy so there were no issues regarding sun bed availability or level of service. We were quite happy that there was no entertainment in the evenings (apart from Xmas eve) because as a group we entertained oursleves. The arrival of Santa on a speed boat to the private beach was somewhat surreal, but very entertaining!
We found all the staff to be extremely friendly and attentive. They quickly learned our preferences and routine and were keen to accommodate our needs wherever possible. We tended to drink mainly water during the day which was quickly noted and our arrival on the beach was always met with a delivery of cold bottles of water to our sunbeds. We experienced absolutely no rudeness from the staff, only smiles on the whole and in some cases a bit of friendly banter with the youngsters in our group.
As a point of constructive criticism, it would be good to have a range of soft drinks/juices which are not quite so sweet. We found the majority of soft drinks and cocktails to be really sweet and somewhat sickly. As two of our group are not big alcoholic drinkers, this limited their choice. The fruit juices all tasted artificial.
I would also agree with the previous comment regarding the practice of placing guests in the bar area where smoking is permitted while awaiting check in. As non-smokers, this was unpleasant, but we simply moved ourselves into the reception seating area, which was fine.
The food was excellent in respect of the variety and range of choice. I understand that catering for a wide spectrum of tastes is not an easy job, but we would have appreciated a heavier handed use of spices or herbs. Sometimes some of the dishes were a little bit bland. This by no means detracted from our holiday experience and is a minor observation. The range of fresh vegetables, breads, and meat dishes would make it difficult for guests not to be able to find something to their liking.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for anyone wishing to get away for a relaxing and very chilled break.
