This was our second trip to Swisscare and only the second place in 12 years of independant travelling that we have ever returned to. Alvin and his team were fabulous - they could not do enough for us.
The suites are brilliant, very spacious, large bed, 2 bathrooms, a really effective fridge, constant hot water, very effective A/C and a small kitchen area for making tea/coffee etc - rather than a small tray with nowhere to plug the kettle in, as is so frequently experienced. The evening turn down service also includes a nightly mossy room spray.
The food was even better than last time. The idea of a standard main menu which varies completely every day, even takes the effort out of having to decide what to eat each night - brilliant. You also know the food is freshly cooked rather that just heated up in the micro. Should there be something on the standard daily menu that you do not wish to have, you can order anything at all from the full resurant menu to replace that item, providing you inform the staff in the morning. The bar is small but suited to the needs of the place, plently of live football on the TV if you want it as well as pool, darts etc. Drinks are reasonably priced. Just ignore the Spurs memorabillia which adorns the walls ha ha!! Poor Alvin, don't know what he sees in them.
The pool is absolutely fabulous, spotlessly clean water and surroundings.
The beach is natural soft sand - a rarety in Egypt and you can order your lunch and have it delivered to your sunbed - total luxury. There are a few guys who trot along on camels once in the morning and again in the evening and call you to see if you want a ride. They are no problem and do not hassle you if you say no. There are no beach sellers, wonderful.
We went to Swisscare to completly relax and having experienced perfect peace and quiet last year and again this year we will regulally return. There are a list of tours available and snorkeling is reportedly excellent - although we do not indulge yet but Alvin is convincing us to give it a go.
If you want a lively, noisey location with nightlife, shopping etc - Swisscare is not for you. This is for the peace loving fraternity. Long may it remain so.
