We (couple, mid twenties) stayed here for a very quiet and relaxing week in the middle of September 2012. We booked a taxi from the airport through the reception at the hotel which I would advise doing, it was less than $30 and got us there in 20 mins. Easy Peasy.
The hotel is beautiful. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which was stunning and really made our holiday. The staff on the reception desk were very helpful and polite. Our suite was lovely. Huge, very modern, very comfortable, and kept very clean by the lovely El Sayed.
Food - the food in the main buffet is ok. The main buffet can get quite hectic and we found some of the other guests were quite rude but generally this was the minority. The staff in the main buffet work incredibly hard. We used the buffet mainly for lunch but you can also have dinner there. Our favourite restaurant was the Breezes restaurant by the main pool. Tarek in the Breezes restaurant was a brilliant waitor, he always remembered our names and made us feel so welcome. He was fantastic. The Souk restaurant was atmospheric and the food was lovely. I’d recommend booking both during your stay.
The grounds of the hotel are kept very pretty. The beach is a five min walk down a pretty private path but there is also a shuttle bus on golf buggies that runs all day.
I couldn’t recommend the hotel highly enough. Thank you for a lovely week – and a special mention to Tarek in the Breezes restaurant for being so brilliant.
