We chose this hotel after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The hotel staff really made this place stand out. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at almost midnight but the restaurant was expecting a late arrival and laid on a really nice cold buffet. We booked a room with a sea view and balcony. We didn't get the balcony but our hotel voucher on checking the next day did not mention this. We only mentioned it to the hotel team and were immediately taken on a motorised buggy to examine 3 rooms tochoose which one we liked. The food was excellent and even after 2 weeks we were still spoilt for choice! The house reef was outstanding. This was my fourth trip to the Red Sea area and this was the best reef by a mile. The inner lagoon was visited by Turtles that were not worried by us swimming alongside them and we also saw a Barracuda inside the reef. Outside the reef there is a vast amount of marine life. We were lucky to see a White Tip reef sharks, more Turtles and Barracuda, big Stingrays, the list goes on and on! There is no jetty out to the reef so you need to carefully snorkel out over the coral, this is not a problem. They were building what looked to be a jetty at the dive centre end of the beach, hopefully this will be able to be used by all.Also worth mentioning is that the hotel time is 1 hour ahead of Egyptian time. This gives an extra hour of daylight at the end of the day. This week (5/6/13) it was almost 8pm before it was dark and it's always light well before 6am so plenty of time on the reef! We enjoyed it so much that we will go back in October. We were the only British people in the hotel, most guests were Italian, German, a few French and Czech. This was not a problem for us!
