Great choice of pools, towels provided, but some dining areas were shut due to time of year, presumably. Some dining places needed to be booked in advance, which was worth doing, just to have a change. The walk... More

Dear Guest, It comes as a disappointment to us that you were anything less than fully satisfied with your stay with us. The hotel has a small army of housekeeping staff working 24/7 to keep the hotel's public areas, guest rooms and kitchens spotlessly clean, as this is high on our list of priorities. If the food was not to... More

It's on the sea so we had amazing time with all the activities you can do there. The price was not that high they didn't take advantage of us like other Egyptians guys so I recommend it... More

This is by far the worst hotel I have ever been to. It is listed as a five star hotel, but it does not even deserve one star. The facilities are very old. The rooms are very old, not very comfortable and not very clean. The food is terrible. If one eats there, one has a high chance of getting... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry to read that you were not happy about the security guard.

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.
