Had a lovely week in December, the hotel is imacculately clean although abit weathered as are most buildings in Egypt. The rooms are huge very clean too.
The food, in the buffet it's ok, but the staff are great after coming in late and being only customers cooked up extra steak after seeing in had had the last bit off the Buffett. Eat at the Indian and med both times which were superb, ESP the Indian. Lunch at both places was ok but again not amazing.
Bars, spent most the time in the little bar with live singers very nice, and most performers very good with a superb waiter who would have your drinks ready the second you finished your last sip. The sports bar was nice to, also some good shows at night, and a couple not so good but better than a lot of others.
The pool is nice pleanty of beds, the entertainment people would ask you to join in but to say 18-30's is a joke, with the majority of people joining in being 60+! I didn't join in as was just out to relax but they were all very friendly. The beach is ok but not fantastic.
We did the snorkelling which was very good. We also went to Cairo which was def worth a visit.
I would also say, even if you weren't going to stay in this hotel still do visit Egypt. The country is in desperate need of tourist and the people on the whole are genuinely nice and really could do with the support at a time their country is in desperate need
