I will start with positive: The food is really good, especially if you stay no longer than 5-7 days (as in my case).
As for negative:
On the day of departure the person from reception called us exactly at check-out time and on the excuse for 10 minutes delay because we were packing started shouting!! sent a porter who just opened the door without knocking and was staying at the door as we were packing!
The reason is that they want money from guests for literally every little "service"!
Similarly, they were not changing blankets and bringing bottles of water even though we were leaving tips! until we complained.
For minor points: In the middle of the park there is an artificial lake. That would probably be a positive point if not the mosquitoes. Though the risk of getting a malaria in Egypt is not high I would still be cautious. On the beach there is no escape from flies.
