What we loved about this place is that its secluded away from the busy cities. Dont forget its a 3 star hotel and we honestly were not expecting much but apart from the room issue we had, it was actually quite a good experience. Its better to call the hotel and book your rooms or double check cuz I booked 2 rooms from booking.com but when I called they said they had no bookings from my side. Food was ok, they have 2 swimming pools in the Resort and kit-surfing was great to watch.
On the down side, room #229 had an AC problem. We informed the reception and they sent us a guy saying that we had to keep the room closed to allow the AC to cool it which wasnt the case. We had to complain 3 more times till a technician showed up later at night saying the AC was out of Freon & it should work fine after refilling. Again this wasnt the case until they were finally convinced that we had to change the room at midnight!!! We only stayed for one night so this wasnt pleasant and when we asked for a contribution on check out, they offered 25EGP discount and said that was the best they could offer... seriously?
The beach is rocky so you better watch where you step... otherwise bring swimming shoes along cuz the water is really shallow during this time of the year. Kit-surfing was nice but we couldnt even try it cuz u have to take the full learning course which can take up to 2 weeks! All water sports were over priced including the Jet-ski which costs for an hour the same room rate u pay for 2 nights. There were other activities like billiards and beach volleyball and u can ask them to arrange a golf cart to drop u off at the beach from the hotel.
The place is not so easy to find for a first timer going by car. There's only one sign for the place 1km before it, otherwise u have to find someone to ask for directions. We phoned the guys in the hotel and they were very helpful explaining how to get there.
Overall, we were satisfied with our stay apart from the room issue we had, and we would definitely come back again!
