With reguards to the previous review, this is egypt not the UK things will be different!
We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and would recomend staying at this hotel.
The rooms were of a good standard, just what you would usually expect on holiday. We came back to the room every day and the housekeepers had made our blankets into various animals, it kept us very entertained. We found the air con controlls pretty confusing and had difficulty gettting the room cold but once we figured it out we knew what to do. The shower was fine, not up to british standards perhaps but we were in africa! I would be surprised NOT to find a lizard on my balcony in july in egypt.
The food was of a good standard but was aimed towards the germans we feel. For a week the choice of food was fine but i feel after two weeks it may have got repetative. I have a gluten allergy and struggled to find things to eat as they didnt understand what this ment, so i mostly ate rice and salad, luckily i had taked snacks in my case. We went to the chinese resteraunt which was much of the same but nice food. Pool snacks were limited so we went to the perade of shops to stock up on ice creams, crisps and chocolate.
The holel had a great atmosphere, it was livley without being overbearing. It was very family orientated and there was plenty of other kids. There wernt many english people, the majority being german, russian and french, but there was still english familys to talk to if you made the effort, which we did and really enjoyed thier company.
We took a trip to luxor, we visited the valley of the kings and various temples. It was a 4 hour drive to luxor with only a german comentary (my only complaint of the day!) , but well worth it. When they say it will be hot, there not lying! It was just like opening an oven door, so take plenty of the free water from the hotel. Everywhere you go in egypt you feel obliged to tip, but luxor seemed much worse, so take plenty of small change. All in all an unmisable trip.
Overall great holiday, amazing weather (every day very warm!) and a very realaxing time!
