My wife and I chose his hotel as our honeymoon destination the day after our wedding, we flew the next day. The reveiws on tripadvisor were so good, we just had to go. We flew with Thompson, which was ok, after the multitude of ad-ons to a package holiday.
When we arrived at the hotel, they offered to upgrade at a price, but we stuck with the room, with no regrets! Pool, bar, beach, restaurant, all faultless. Look out for a la carte deals. They even fixed a Luna eclipse for us!
Excursions are what they are, tourists in a bus, with cash to spend. The local diving is good, with a very good centre, although a little pricey as they are the only one there. Go for the biggest package if your there or 2 weeks.
Next to the hotel is a nice lagoon with a bar/restaurant on it (although closed for refurb whilst we were there), this offers a nice diversity to the day, but if you walk past it you come to a shallow spit of beach which goes out to about 200m into the sea, at no more than knee deep. From there you can see Egypt (obviously), Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. How good is that?
We are just about to book our return visit, just a pity about the carrier. Enjoy!
