Our family of 4 (2 young kids) just had a great long weekend at this hotel. It is by far the nicest beach location we have seen in Egypt and the hotel was outstanding. We had a wonderful stay. Beach was lovely and the access to coral and marine life does not get better. Hotel staff, especially Ahmed at the front desk, were very helpful. It does not get a 5 star from us as the food was just okay. It did not take away from a wonderful time. It was very easy for us to go running in the local area and we brought scooters and roller blades for the kids to enjoy the pathways. Rooms were beautiful and the decor of the hotel is amazing.
