Chose this hotel because of the reviews and location as on this visit not visiting the sites but wanting a peaceful, restful and luxurious break and we were not disappointed. Met at the airport for shuttle to hotel (20 us dollars) by lovely Ahmed worth it for the lack of hassle outside by taxi drivers after long flight and lateness of the day. Met with a lovely rose, bottled water and cool flannels.
Booked in by very efficient reception staff whilst enjoying more cool flannels and lovely refreshing drink. Upgraded to Nile view room with larger balcony at extra cost but worth it.
Hotel occupancy very low but did not detract from our holiday, restaurant and bars open. Spent the week at the spa pool which was just magical with the best service ever by Ahmed and Hashem The staff work very hard to make your stay as special as it can be and the service is second to none. Towels, sunbeds prepared prior to your arrival in the morning, beautiful towel decorations, flowers, water and ice prepared in champagne buckets ready for your day, cool iced towels provided on the hour every hour to cool you down with lovely mint aroma. Could have used other spa facilities ie saunas etc but too hot for us. Spa manager very attentive to ensure everything as it should be.
Ate at the Asian restaurant and Olives which was as expected excellent service and great food.
Rooms very clean and daily turn down service ensures fresh towels and products always available. Fresh fruit on arrival was a nice touch. Daily bottled water in the room a welcome thought. Fresh milk for tea and coffee provided by breakfast restaurant staff. Variety at breakfast very good from freshly made omelettes to fruit pastries hot food etc.
Pros for this hotel is Service service service all the way, nothing is too much trouble.
Cons - Being picky but the base of the pools are tiled and have started to come away with loose tiny tiles on the floor which needs attention but did not detract from the holiday.
Reception staff (Veronica and Amr very helpful in every way). Will definitely be back already looking at dates for September (special birthday).
Booked taxi back to airport via concierge £6.50. Small shop across the road from hotel for incidentals and drink if required for the room. Prices in hotel for food and drink as you would expect for this quality of hotel and service.
