I have just spent a week at this hotel (24th Oct - 1st Nov) and was pleasantly surprised with the accomodation and the hospitality from all the workers at this hotel -- they all work so hard and they don't stop. We were lucky as it was the festival and a lot of Egyptians were coming for this period so there was evening entertainment- belly dancing, fire juggling, etc.. it was very repetative for the four nights but it didn't bother us as a family. The swimming pool was always cleaned up in the evenings. We as a family wanted a peace and quiet surrounding and we got that.
Syed the shop keeper was lovely, Ibraheem the waiter was excellent, and Ahmed the excursion rep at Sharks bay was very good , we booked all our excursions with him and without any fault. Quad biking the boys loved, The Tiran Island on the boat was relaxing with snorkling, and we also did the Cairo trip by plane through Ahmed- perfect. Maybe we were very lucky but we really enjoyed our stay at the Al Diwan - food was lovely - good breakfast, nice lunch and BBQ's in the evening with salad galore all day. DJ was entertaining and all the waiters were exceptional including Mohammed the manager. The reception guys were also nice and literally everyone, I can't remember all their names. Shahad the laundry guy did our room every day and new towels were left - he even went an extra mile and tidied up. They really do deserve tips as they all work so hard. If you want alot of childrens activites, night entertainment and proper British food then you are not going to get that. It is a basic hotel and what you pay is what you get. We will hopefully go back again.
