Have just had a very good five day stay at the Oricana. Our daughter (16) was diving with the Big Blue Dive outfit (also recommended), so we looked for somehere local to it. The Oricana let us have two rooms for 310 egyptian pounds in total (42 euros; 48 pounds stering; 55 us dollars) including breakfast which seemed an excellent deal. The room was comfortable, the air-con and bathrooms were fine; the staff always attentive and fun to chat with (and very pleasant with our daughter; one of them tested her on her diving theory); they were helpful on booking taxis etc. without being pushy and there were no unexpected extras when it came to settling up. The breakfast was very comprehensive (the owner said he'd got a new chef after a few complaints) and included omelette or pancakes to order in addition to both cooked and cold buffet items. The pool is a bit chilly, but once you are in was OK.
No complaints at all; overall I think the best feature is the architecture of the back terrace; lovely to sit in during the early evening with a bottle of wine. I'd recommend a room overlooking the pool. It's a tiny bit out of the town centre, but if you walk in along the front there is always plenty going on and the local shops are cheaper than those on the main strip.
