Me and my then fiance stayed at this hotel during the end of Feb and beginning of March.
It is one of the last hotels that the coach drops you off at and does not look so great from the outside but do not let this fool you.
Reception is rather nice and the people are very helpful.
Do not be surprised to find something broken in your room so that the handymen can come and fix it for a tip. Oh, and by the way, you have to tip everyone.
Comfy beds with huge walk in showers. Same as the rooms, massive!!
I wouldn't bother going all inclusive as the food really is not all that great, trust me, i love my food and bed and breakfast is more than enough. Breakfast comprises of pastries and some cereal. Or if you're feeling brave, a very greasy omlete.
The food is really cheap out there but the alcohol is very expensive. Buy a few bottles from duty free as the international stuff is like the price of gold!
Oh and the cab drivers will do their best to rip you off, be firm and pay the fare that is displayed in their windscree. Should be 40 egyption pounds. If you get a minicab from the hotel, more than likely you will get the same driver day in day out which works out much better for you.
If you are footy nut like me, if you come out of the hotel and tunr left and walk to the end of the road, there is an English bar which shows the matches and serves a decent burger and beer. Nice if you can't be bothered to go to Naama Bay.
Naama Bay is only about 7 minutes from the hotel by cab.
But you do have to check out the Camel Bar in Naama Bay, there chips are simply amazing along with the atmosphere when the footballs on.
In Naama Bay, go to the restaurant next door, called Pomidori or something, excellent food and even better desserts. Go for the Creme Brulee, i guarantee you will thank me for the tip.
Another good place to eat is the big mexican place, can't remember what it's called though.
Anyway, back to the hotel, you may find the pressure in the shower a little weak, just contact the reception and they will den some round to fix it.
There is a brilliant pizza place by the pool which has to be tried.
If you get this hotel and flight for less than £350, grab it, you won't be dissapointed.
