We booked this hotel from 27.12.2012 because our plane was planned to land at 3.30AM. Finally due to fligh delay etc we arrived the hotel on 28.12.2012 at 10 o clock in the morning. The reception lady asked us to wait 40 minutes because room was not ready (room that should be ready 1 day ago...)
We paid for the trip 7000USD for a couple for 7 days with All Inclusive option but after 1 day we recognised that it was not good deal. This hotel is BIG mistake. The same amount we paid for trip to Cancun in January 2012 and it was amazing. We thought that it will be double better. We heard from friends that UAE is luxury country so we could not wait to see it and to taste it.
Unfortunatelly everything in this hotel is joke.
All Inclusive includes nothing. You can only order very short list of cheap drinks tea, coffee, home wine, home bear and some domestic alcohols. regading soft drinks if you order for ex. coca cola they bring you water mixed with concentrate (sweet taste simillar to coca cola) When I asked for REAL coca cola in can the waiter said that I have to pay for it. Also if you want to have some real beer for example Amstel Beer you will be requested to pay for it. Very often waiters at swimming pool offer some nice coctails (for ex Mohito) or ice creams and then they bring the bill and say "sorry it is chargable" Imagine that you pay for the stay 3500usd per person and they charge you for ice creams!
Next thing is internet. There is no WIFI internet in the room (only cable internet that cost around 20USD per hour - cable is very dirty with dust so be carreful) WIFI internet is only in the lobby but also chargeable)
They request to pay for everything in this hotel - even they will charge you for billard (cost approx 20usd per hour)
Mini bar also payable
Rooms are dirty especially bathrooms. They ignored my two requests to clean better the rooms.
Food is OK also stuff at main restaurant is nice (most of tchem are ladies from Filiphines). the problem is that in All Inclusive option you can only eat at Main Restaurant. There is no free lunch at the beach or close to the pool like in other hotels that you can eat eat in the bikini and enjoy the sun. There is nice Italian restaurant close to the pool but of course "payable".
Chargable is the most popular word using by the waiters. You will hear it very often at this hotel. Also extremly annoying is that everytime you want to order something you must tell your room no and sign some document. There is a price on this document so you do not know if they will charge you at the end of the stay or or not (they say it is only for their records but we are not sure cause we are still here) We have booked our stay at this hotel until January 4 but we are going to leave ealier. We want to move to another hotel after New Year Party on Jan 1, 2013. We just cannot be here any more. This hotel ruined our holidays.
Next thing is New year party. It was not included at stay. They requested to pay for it extra approx 350USD per person BUT after midnight you must pay for the drinks! Also the price does not includes champagne or sparkling wine so we had to pay additional to have champagne for new year toast.
the list is much longer but I am sure that is enough warning for people who care where they stay. The only good thing in this hotel is weather but the same conditions you have in Egipt for 3 times less money.
