Stay period: 2012, end of October. The weather was perfect (air 30-32C, see 28C), we have stayed for a week. It was our first visit to Egypt.
Room must be changed beacuse of location (facing outside) but the new room facing to the central pool was nice. Service was quite good, guys were very helpful and friendly.
Various sunplaces (grass, sand, stone) many towel-corners, nice pools (two of them with slides, some of them heated) are available. Grounds for children and volleyball place fine as well.
Main Restaurant area was a little bit confused - buzz in the hive, sometimes service places are not enough for such a lot of people - Iam afraid - and you have to walk a lot with plates between your table and buffet-lines. Besides it was fine, 1-2 days and you will get used to it. There are many snack bar around pools and beach area so later you have chance to eat something else with your children.(Theirs pasta and pizza are quite poor but other snacks pretty good (hamburger, kofta, rosted chicken, salad and french fries). Drinks are acceptable (fair-enough), bier quite good, icecream for children was very popular.
Aqua-fittness and street-dance hours were funny and pleased. Mini disco is every evening, Turkish-kind was at higher standard in Antalia- in my opinion...
Beach is quite beauty but strange (shoal) the water-level is extra mini when the ebb is coming but we knew it before so weren't so disappointing. A Hotel-owned private pier could be fine for swimmers and snorkelling bacuse the usage of neighbour-hotel's pier wasn't allowed by their guard. It's a really missing object , we had to walk along cc 600 meters in the short water to get the local snorkelling place. Don't worry, walk and you will enjoy fantastic "nemo-fishes" !!!!
We went all-day excursions to Giftun island (snorkelling-ship tour) and Luxor and the Hotel made travel-package (sanwitches, water) so it was fine as well.
I recommend this beauty place to families to relaxing with children, but for advanced divers only with organized trips with extra diving possibilities.
