We went to club life magic for the 3rd time last october.
As always the staff were great and very efficient overall.
The assistant GM patrols the grounds as always ensuring high standards are maintained.
The rooms are a little tired but by no means shabby! There is satellite TV , very comfy beds and pillows.The air con works well and have to say for the amount of time we spend in the room we have always been very happy.
The animators are the main reason we return each year ... They are professional performers/ fitness instructors who also mingle until late making sure everybody is happy.
The buffet restaurant has a different theme each night , French, Italian etc .... This visit we didn`t feel the need to go to the a la carte restaurants.
You can sit outside in candle light and the whole atmosphere feels like a top notch quality restaurant. The Buffet can be a little repetitive into the second week so next time we might book the a la cartes more.
If you like an active holiday this place is amazing .... Too many Zumba , pilates , tone up classes and others to mention .... But they are not `Pushed in your face` ....
There is archery, Arabic lessons, mountain cycling, gym and tons of other things to do.
There is an activity pool playing upbeat music or a quiet pool ...playing none!
Club life caters for everyone ... Hence the return visits from reviewers ....
The only thing I would say ... And this applies to any Hotel in Egypt is be careful of the tummy bug ... We are not immune.... I was quite ill the last day and for 2 weeks after.
When you take a plate or dish in the buffet make sure it is bone dry. If it is damp it probably was removed from the dishwasher too soon. (Dishwashers dont use bottled mineral water).
The ice cream station which for some reason only serves at lunchtimes ?? Has a scoop which is kept in a dish (Tap ??) of water. As you can imagine, by the end of lunch this dish is full of warm water/ice cream. If you have children perhaps ask them to change the scoop dish!
Also the money .... If you handle money it is advised to clean your hands after ... The pound shop do small bottles of sterilising gel that fit perfectly into a bag.
As I said this applies to any hotel in Egypt.
Last point .... When the bar staff are very busy .... They simply have not got time to wash and dry glasses ..... They will dunk the glass in water (Tap?) shake off the excess and serve the next drink... I always take vodka in the hope it will kill the bugs ..... Didn`t work last time though ...... Maybe that was because my wife made me drink less !!
Either way this is a great place and have already booked for april ...
