First time to Egypt; and it was exactly what we needed. Only stayed for a week from the 13th Nov. Rooms (it was an apartment) excellent- clean, spacious tastefully decorated. Rest of the hotel was good, staff were attentive and welcoming especially Tarek.
The only thing i would note is that this was our first All Inclusive holiday- which we booked knowingly so we missed eating out elsewhere or just choosing off a menu. Being that you have to eat here for breakfast,lunch and dinner as there was nowhere else close by to eat. The food being offered at this hotel could be fresher. It wasn't horrendous but similarly wasn't amazing. The hotel's feel in general is very good,there's a good team of people behind it, you can tell it is a relatively new resort, and if the food were improved it would be spot on.
Top Tip: although you're in Egypt; dont bother taking Egyptian Pounds! Yes we know-took us by surprise too in this resort. Take Sterling.
