Stayed here as part of a tour and was pleasantly suprised.
Hotel was clean but the rooms were a little dated. Not sure where the mosquites were coming from (possibly the air conditioning) but my friends two rooms had them as well. Room and bed was comfortable and the private beach and pool was very nice.
Buffet dinner and breakfast was good but was not so nice that smoking was still allowed in the restaurant. Everyone smokes in Egypt but in a resort town catering to international visitors you would think non-smoking restaurant would be easy to enforce. Non-smoking tables were 2 metres away from the smoking ones so made no difference where you sat.
Staff were friendly and the beach towel service was really good, but could take time to get service for drinks in the restaurant, whether is was coffee for breakfast or evening drinks.
A fair way from downtown but there were plently of taxis going by to get you there. More restaurants only a few minutes walk up the road. Overall a good stay and the diving on the Red Sea is a must. Not sure on value for money as all included in the tour price.
