When you think of Egypt your attention swings to the Pyramids, the Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings. The Menaville resort is for the alternate mindset that thinks of just sitting on the beach for two weeks.
As the review says, it's an odd sort of place, the hotel is fine the beaches are decent and there is a very nice tiny chunk of coral reef just of the beach, which you can snorkel over and see quite a few fish. Nonetheless, the main memory will be of folks shovelling food down themselves at breakfast, lunch and tea amidst barbecuing themselves under the Red Sea sun, whilst the Pyramids remain odd triangular things somewhat akin to the chocolates being gorged. If you want to gormandise yourself into cardiac arrest this is the place for you!!!
The place itself, somewhat aside from parts of its clientele is decent, though there are a vfew issues with air conditioning not working and pretty impressive insects entering rooms - though the grounds seem to be routinely gassed each day at about 17:00 there are some hardy survivors wishing to make your acquaintance.
As I said, its a decent place, with decent enough food and facilities, but if you believe Egypt to be the Land of the Pharoahs and 5000 years of culture and history you might just wonder what Rameses II would make of it and its inhabitants? Shashlick anyone ???
