Dear Guest, I am sorry to read that you were not happy about the security guard. You will understand that we have to take security very seriously in Sharm El Sheikh and that means that all people must pass through the security checks before entering the hotel and there can be no exceptions. If the guard dealt with this in... More

First time in Egypt, and i wasn't disappointed. Didn't really get the Egyptian experience, but that's not really what i went there for. Nice local room design, nice variety of food, nice beach and cute shisha bars by the boardwalk. Not really planning on going back. But if i do i wouldn't mind staying here again.
