We have just returned from a weeks holiday here. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There were very few British there but that didn't cause us any problems. We only ate in the main restaurant on the first night and the next lunchtime but found the food typical of all inclusive restaurants though only beer, wine and soft drinks were available there. Thereafter we ate in one of the other restaurants, which we found very good especially La Palmas the Italian restaurant. It was my birthday while we were there and they made me a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday to me in English and Egyptian.
There are camels and horses available for rides and multiple pools one with slides. We didn't ever use the pools preferring to use the beach. The sea doesn't drop off so good for children and those of us who like to swim within our depth. There is also a quiet area at the far end of the beach so you can escape the salesmen from the spa, beauty, camel rides, diving e.t.c.. There are two bars on the beach, one overlooking the beach, plus a music bar and another at the side of reception where you will also find a pharmacy, jewellers, sports shop, tobacco and souvenir shop and a t- shirt, swimwear etc shop. There are also more shops outside.
This place is remote with nothing for miles around but we found everything we needed on site. There are also no lifts and we and another two ladies who arrived at the same time were located on the third floor. One of the ladies who suffered with athiritus found the stairs too much. The hotel moved them immediately to a ground floor room. The rooms are good and clean with a good shower.
We didn't use the spa, gym, beauty salon or any of the water sports so unable to comment on these.
We enjoyed our stay and have to say a special thank you to Ezz, the junior assistant food and beverages manager, Ramy one of the bar men, Israa, the Thomson rep, Alena, customer relations and all the reception staff. We would go back to this hotel.
