Stayed there for 9 days and mostly found this hotel as ok. The rooms are basic but clean and the staff was generally friendly. The all-inclusive food and drinks were a lot worse then I even expected though (even after some negative reviews). The wine is absolutely undrinkable and the beer, I think, was very diluted as never went to my head (and I normally get it from two sips only... The daft-sized plastic beakers for beer were just silly and unnecessarily small).
No one in our family had a bad stomach during the stay but the food was very repetitive and extremely bland. Best were mini kebabs and aubergines. For the omelettes to be so tasteless, the mixture must have been watered down somewhat....
If you looking forward to snorkelling or diving, that is not the place to go. We went for this particular hotel as as have "large natural lagoon" but due to heavy fishing and cutting and selling of corals for a few dollars, very few fish and the reefs are colourless and largely dead. Having been to Sharm and Taba H before, those would be the snorkeling, diving areas, no here.
Our 8 yo son won't even step in the kids club as it was essentially a Russian language club. Yes, the nice young lady spoke good English, but with all the kids being Russian, the Club is one better suited for Russian speakers. The equipment was a hit lacking as well, and Westen kids would find the electronics very substandard.
Given the fact that there are so many better hotels around (including the great Grand Rotana in Sharm) we could not say we would want to return.....
