Rooms are big and convinient, especially shower cabin: it's big anough for romantic couple and for children to splash, towel shelf is inside the cabin which is also very comfortable. Shower head is also very big. For tips you can get a small and thick towel as a rug before the cabin. Be careful with the shower cabin door: if the door-handle is not properly fixed (if it's fixed only from the top or bottom) the door becomes jammed when you pul it so that you'll be locked inside the cabin. There is a fridge in the room.
Restaurant is very good, food is various and tasty, much fruit. There is special menu for vegetariants on demand (for example, pasta with vegetables and mushrooms or vegetables stewed in a pot) but as for me ordinary mill was various enough for different tastes and habbits. Besides, there were a lot of delicious sauces for vegetables and other courses so guests can "prepare" their own courses to their tastes. Most of vegetables are cut separately, and guests also can mix them into salad with different sauces to their taste. There were also diffetent types of tea (black and green), coffee, cocoa and hot milk to ones liking. In May only one restaurant was open but there was another restaurant about to open on the 2nd floor with amazing view to to sea.
Hotel territory is nice; pool is clean, and not very big, children are fond of playing with a "banana" and a big "wheel" in the poor. There is a special warm pool for little children with a slide for children's fun. Beach loungers and mattresses are comfortable. Loungers are wooden, not plastic. The beach is sandy but sea entry is stony and not deep so shoes are obligatory. Hotel ponton has not yet built but guests may use ponton of the neighbouring hotel which is within 10 meters reach or just walk several meters into the sea (not far) in order to swim at depth. Snorkling is very good. Hotel has it's own coral reef. You can see some bright color fish just standing knee-deep in the sea and watching. If you are lucky you can see dolphins or sea-turtles near the ponton. In May beach territory was not clean from fragments of shells and corals brought by flows. The sea is heavy, with many waves. In the mid of May there were 2-3 days with "red flag" when it is not allowed to swim in the sea; all other days were with "yellow flag". In very windy days there is much sand in the air; impossible to stay at the beach - all the skin gets covered with sand; it's better to stay at the poolside in such days.
Upon arrival I was met by a glass of cold juice - very promptly after 2-hour transfer from Hurgada airport. Then I was accompanied to my room and was asked to check it for any defects right away. I only asked for more light in the bathroom: not all the lamps worked; they were replaced immedietly. A determind bottle of water was also delivered immedietly without any requests. All the staff is very polite and friendly. Guests from different countries can find staying in this hotel
comfortable and pleasant.
I strongly recommend hotel diving center "Wonderful Diving Center". Very good and responsible instructors (speak at least English, German, French and Italian), new mordern equipment, new comfortable suits. They have different diving programs depending on your preferences and experience (many dive places to visit: with tortoises, dolfins and sea cows, with canions, with sunk ships and sharks; with muny different fish and crubs). I made 6 dives in different diving centers with different instructors. Impressions also differed from delight to total detestation to water (when I swallowed plenty of disgusting-salty water during unsuccessful diving). So, I can compare and conclude: Wonderful Diving Center was my best experience). For those who do not want to dive I strongly recommend night snorkling; you can see different fish, crabs and maybe lobster.
For more informaion about the hotel you can see the hotel site, I can just confirm that all info on the site is true. My best recommendation for the hotel - I'm going there again at the end of October 2013!
I liked my room on the ground floor - it's very convinient to go down to the pool and the beach...
