An ok hotel option definitely visited better in Egypt. Clean sheets, dining areas and relatively polite staff. Our rep was hardly ever available. The pool was clean but there were some issues with the beach and one bar staff member.

Lovely hotel around 20 minutes from the airport. Room was cleaned daily and was more like a suite, it was so large. 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...

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...
