Just got back from resta reef in marsa alam yesterday and couldn't have wished for a better holiday.
The positives: 15 minute drive from the airport! Every single member of staff was so polite and helpful from the bar staff to the cleaners even the gardeners spoke to u every time u saw them! Every single day u were asked numerous times was everything ok with your room, could anybody get you anything? Where you enjoying your stay, it's the first holiday I've been on where I genuinely felt that the staff really did care about you and your holiday!
2 lovely pools 1 with a pool bar! This was the one we used the most! Ramadan the bar tender was the best ! Had your next drink lined up before you had finished the one you had! Also the beach and beach bar were really nice although the sea was very rough so was always a black flag but that's hardly the hotels fault!
On our first day we had a one hour Turkish bath and massage which was a brilliant relaxing start to our holiday!
Hotel cleanliness was one of the best I've been to! Every single day the room was cleaned and you were left 2 bottles of water! Air con was a saviour left the room lovely and cool! Our cleaner was also called Ramadan and he was a lovely man! So happy and polite came and said hello to you every day and asked about your room even made us a swan display from our towels!
Last but by no means least the animation team! Whether British or Italian both teams said hello to you every day! For us solo, Lisa jay and Alan where the best! Jay and Alan spent a lot of time chattin with us and making us feel welcome, solo is possibly the happiest man on earth never sad or down and always trying to get you involved in activities but none of them where ever pushy with it! Charlotte was also very friendly and helpful and took the time to come and speak to you during your holiday.
On arrival we were greeted by jay Alan and Charlotte and made to feel very welcome! When departing all the animation team made a point of coming down and saying goodbye to you and waved us off to the airport!
One piece of advice I would give if your going the beach party do not touch the mojhito's ! They made us so ill!!
The negatives: not much food choice! Having said that the quality of the food was good would just have been nicer to have a bit more choice! The resort itself is very remote but as we didn't wish to leave the hotel it suited us fine.
All in all one of the best holidays I have ever had made some really great friends both staff and guests! Would definitely recommend the resta reef value for money without a doubt! Such a shame Thomson are thinking of pulling out because it really is an amazing hotel ! Achmed was our rep for Thomson and again very polite and helpful, full of knowledge and happy to sit and chat with you and share it!
