We stayed for 1 week from 7th - 14th November and can honestly say this is one of the best hotels that we have stayed in, have stayed in sharm before and in Naama bay but out of the 2 would highly recommend and definitely return to this resort and hotel. From arriving the staff could not do enough for us, check in was smooth and bags taken to our room, our room was huge, very modern and comfy and balcony huge, we stayed just above the swim up rooms which looked very nice. Our room cleaner called Yasser was brilliant and left us amazing towel art each day and also a huge bottle of water sometimes 2 in our room at no extra charge, he also left us a fruit basket, we didn’t feel the need to grab bottles of water from the bar at breakfast although easily available if required as there were plenty of water fountains around the grounds of the hotel and the staff waited on us especially Sam (Hossam) making sure we always had a drink which also meant a beer was brought to us early in the morning sometimes 2 at a time. We had no problem getting towels or a sun lounger and often didn’t head down to the pool until 10am, the staff in the restaurant were amazing especially Mahmoud and Ahmed they looked after us very well. I celebrated my 30th birthday out there and Ahmed sang happy birthday at breakfast and wrote me a birthday card in Arabic and with Mahmoud we booked the American Restaurant for the evening, he decorated the table with balloons and banners, played Happy Birthday music and made me a cake which made me feel special but the food was very nice even cooking my Partner 2 meals from the menu as he couldn’t decide what to have, we ate at the Asian restaurant which was also lovely but even in the buffet restaurant there was always plenty of choice, freshly cooked pasta and pizza's and no need to Q for long. The Evening entertainment catered for everyone with the sports bar which we only went to once but they had a great magician on but the terrace bar was nice with a live musician each night and again you never had to leave your seat for a drink. We booked the Ultimate Desert trip with Falcon across the road and found this half the price that First choice charge and the staff were very friendly there, we called them Ashley Cole and Jermaine Janas. No need to worry about leaving the hotel, Yes expect a little hassle from the camel guys and guys from the shop but we had light hearted banter with them and they will joke with you for example they would constantly ask us to stroke the camel as they then want you to get on for a photo but my partner would just ask him how much it was to buy one, just remember they are making their living and they work for very little. The guys would try and get you into their shop but again we would joke with them, have a chat and they will leave you alone and we returned back to see Coco just next to the Metro supermarket at what he says is his new shop to buy some souvenirs but again very friendly guys. There is no needs to be rude like we heard from some people just smile and be polite and you will be humoured by them. Outside of the hotel the beach is not far and snorkelling was great and we also found a great beach bar called Pataya where we went to a beach party with a lot of Egyptians and they again were very friendly and we felt very safe. Last but not least if you are keen to do any boat trips, snorkelling or Scuba diving which we didn’t on this occasion only because we had other trips planned and were only away for the week then please go and see X he works for Aquarius based at the hotel and is a really cool guy who we became friends with, he doesn’t hassle you, the trips sound amazing and you even get a free scuba diving lesson in the pool with no obligation.
