We first visited March 08 and loved it and we were not disapointed on our second visit. In March when the resort is quiet it can't be bettered as a place to unwind in peace and quiet. Temperatures are good although it can be a bit windy Feb/March. As members of the Starwood programme we were upgraded to a lovely two room suite with its own hot tub in its courtyard but the Superior room we had before was great and still had its own terrace in front and private courtyard behind. The sea view rooms are definitely worth the extra price.
Be prepared for lots of stairs and do not expect a lively night life or entertainment as only the Vie restaurant and Horizons bar are open at night in the low season. The food is good ( the best we've had in Eygypt ) but the main courses not European 5 star. There is the choice of a buffet and a very nice Asian based A la Carte. Entertainment consists of a guy and a guitar playing local music, which can be a little monotonous after a few nights. Breakfasts are excellent with a great selection and absolutely fantastic pastries. At luchtime we enjoyed lovely snacks at the Sails beach bar. Bliss. Prices have not changed here since last year but we did notice the effects of the worsening exchange rates making the wine seem pricey.
Unlike a previous report we have never had any problems with staff and have found them all very welcoming and friendly. With regards to security we take the same precautions as visiting anywhere else in the world - keep your valuables locked up!
The camels along the beach are a pest but we did not find them intrusive apart from the smell, just remember you are in Egypt and this is a Bedouin area. Water sports facilities are great and seem reasonably priced.
At the moment there is very limited gym and spa facilities but we have been told the new areas will be finished for next year. These will be great additions. We will definitely be going back next year.
The only negative with this region is the litter. Anywhere immediately outside of the resort beach is covered in rubbish - such a shame.
