First time to Egypt & enjoyed it alot. If your a nit picky kind of person then dont book this hotel u wont enjoy it as broken pool tiles (which u find in 99% of hotels) & the amount of steps there is will spoil it! spend abit more & stay over the road at the Hilton!!!
Ok so stayed 25/11/12 to 9/12/12 we had two rooms 2318 & 2319 both rooms brilliant very clean & kept to a high standard. Our cleaner was mohammed who is such a gem very trustworthy we left our phones & ipad in the room everyday & was never touched.
Jasmine bar & restaurant were ok, beer is out of a can & soft drinks is out of bottles, you only get little glasses but you are welcome to take your own beaker & they will fill it for you. Food not brilliant breakfast was crap but as a fussy eater i found something to eat every night.
The hotel is over run with Russians who we found to be rude & aggressive but they were housed in the Rosetta part of the hotel & all english were in the Jasmine.
The night time entertainment consisted of a speaker on the stage playing music in the Rosetta & a few young girls took the evening entertainment in the Jasmine & to be fair it was diar!! They do organise a trip to SoHo Square which is cheaper than getting a taxi & is a hassle free area just dont pick the coach with the russian girl running it as she will only tell collection point pick up time/ important info in Russian she knew we were english but ignored us we had to ask! VERY RUDE!
We only used the jasmine "quite" pool which was brilliant with poolside bar & snacks the chef & barman are brilliant.
Every worker here is lovely & cant do enough to please you most nights we ended up in the Jasmine bar & were always laughing with the barmen, they like to play tricks on you, they once pretended to drop a cup of tea over me which obviously i screamed & everyone laughed this resulted in "CUP OF TEA" being the catchphrase for the rest of our holiday haha!
Tip everyone early on it pays. 10-20 egyptian pounds once a week is enough but it will pay when the restaurant is full a free table will appear just 4 you
Yes the road outside is busy but you are on the main road into Naama Bay what do you expect. If you decide to walk into naama bay the best & safest way to walk is to come out of hotel turn right cross over to the Hilton & walk through the Hilton (this is allowed & security are fine with it) this will bring you out to the beach and if u turn right it will take you straight into Naama bay!
You will get hassled just say no and keep walking otherwise you will be there forever dont fall for there tricks to get you into a shop either they say things like can you come and write an advertisement in English for me please i have a new shop etc etc!
Overall id rate this hotel a 8/10 and i would return & recommend to my friends and family.
