We booked a 5 night winter sun holiday at EP with Kenwood travel. We were booked in a diamond room and they upgraded us to a suite, which was fantastic, happy days. We were in the west wing which is supposedly the noisy end (not). The hotel is huge but the place is tastefully decorated and immaculately kept. It does take about 5 mins to walk to the restaurants but it is a pleasure to do so. We spent our first day by the west pool which is the children's pools but it was very quiet, they have a golf buggy shuttle which whisks you to the east pool in about 3 mins, but we walked and took in the hotel grounds which are amazing. The beach is superb and the free camel rides amazing. we were on half board which limited us to certain restaurants but the food was of michelin standard in Mezzaluna & Sayad. The buffet in the main restaurant was outstanding as was the breakfast. There are a lot of staff and yes it does get a bit irritating being called sir all the time but , having stayed in Dubai's glitzy hotels this is a lot less pretentious, with a lot less pretentious people staying there and its much cheaper than Dubai but doesn't have the attractions outside the hotel. We stayed put for the 4 full days we were there enjoying the pool areas and the excellent service you get from everyone. Yes it is expensive, especially the booze, but it is an amazing place and you can get some great deals on short breaks.
