My husband and I have recently spent two weeks in this hotel. 18th of June to 2nd July. We had a wonderful holiday. My husband has walking difficulties and has to use crutches to get about. We searched for weeks to find a hotel in Egypt that would suit his needs. Before booking I e-mailed the hotel to request a ground floor room with a walk in shower. I was e-mailed back the same day to say that everything we requested would be provided, they even sent a picture of the walk in shower. we had a lovely welcome by the reception staff and within 10 minutes of our arrival we were taken to our room. It was a ground floor room a few yards from the pool and close to the restaurant. The room was excellent plenty of cupboard space, excellent walk in shower with hand rails and spotlessly clean. A plate of lovely bread rolls and a selection of cheese and meat had been left in the room also. The pool was lovely and had a gradual slope at one end which was perfect for my husband to get in and out unaided. There was a few steps down to a lovely beach and you could walk straight into the sea again perfect for my husband. The view of the surrounding mountains was stunning and you could see Saudi Arabia in the far distance. We went on a trip on the yellow submarine, after the sales man said my husband would be able to get on and of the boat with his crutches. he was true to his word and the staff on the boat were brilliant and helped my husband when he needed it. The trip was out to the coral reef near the hotel, the reef was stunning and the fish were so colourful it was like looking at a photograph in a magazine. The food was brilliant if like me you love to try different food from all over the world you will be in your element. The food was always hot and the waiters were brilliant, remembering what you like to drink and bringing it to you table without having to be asked. The chef even left his work station some mornings to bring me husband his pre ordered omelette to our table. The staff work so hard and are always pleasant and so helpful. we have kept in touch with one of the staff since we came home, my husband really took to him and he was so funny and so helpful. A lot of people we spoke to were on a return visit to the hotel, one German couple were on their 13th visit. The man who cleaned our room made some brilliant shapes on our bed out of the towels, he was so clever, even a monkey hanging from the roof one day. The only thing I can reluctantly criticise is flight of stairs that my husband had to negotiate at night to get to the bar. They could do with small lift. But as he only had to go up and down once a day it wasn't a major problem. Most night there was some form of entertainment in the amphitheatre. Or in the bar where we sat some night there was a singer or a guitarist. Or some nights if you just wanted peace and quiet you could sit in the bar and just chill out. English people were in the minority but met some lovely people, all different nationalities and most of them attempted to speak to us when they knew we were English. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and my husband and I cant wait to go back, hopefully in September. Thanks to all members of staff keep up the good work.
