Firstly this hotel is 99% Russian. Don't let this put you off!! Reading other reviews will mention the pushing and basic bad manners of these people. Just don't let them!! They would stand outside the restaurant waiting for it opening, to rush in and fill their many plates with as much food as they could!! LET Them! We just waited around 45 mins so they could get all their pushing and shoving out of the way. Food stations are constantly being refilled, so you wont get any different to what they did. Above all- be polite to the staff and let them know that you are ENGLISH. They WILL bend over backwards to make you feel welcome. A simple 'Good Morning' surprisingly will get the towel boy searching through the beach towel pile to get you the newest and fluffiest towels he can find, or to getting more coke and water put in your room fridge than you can drink. A small regular tip will also go a long way. Like I said we would wait till around 45mins after the restaurant opened to go for our breakfast, lunch and dinner, but would have a table sat waiting for us with drinks on!!!!!! You would see the Russians pushing and waiting at the bar to be served- us, we had another drink brought for before we had even got to the bottom of the glass!! But Enough about the other guests- Hotel is around 2 years old. Very well maintained and kept. Pool area and grounds were fantastic, as were the rooms. Clean, spacious and comfortable. 2 flat screen TVs, coffee/tea facilities, free safe and stocked fridge. All rooms look onto the pool area. Entrance to the hotel looks a little scruffy and un enspiring set nestled inbetween a row of crappy shops- but wait to be very supprised once entering the lobby, as from here things take a turn for the better. Check in was quick and suitcases taken to our rooms. Golden 5 complex is over the main road, took us 15 mins to walk to the far end of the complex where the beach is, or you can get a free courtacy bus to take you -around every 30mins, like the bone idle Russians did. Ground here are a very tired. Many things not working including the advertised cable car. Water park good though, and their lunch time snack bar better than the one in the topaz. You have to walk through a lobby of shops to get to the rooms. Very cleaver design. Just get used to saying NO, THANKYOU. And if cant be bothered with all the haggling carry on there are 2 fixed price shops within a short walking distance. We went on two trips. First one cost £30 each and was the safari trip. Around 9 hours of Jeep riding, quad bikes, camel riding, Bedouin village, go kart FUN!! Second was the 2 day Luxor trip. £110 each, Filled to the brim will sightseeing, Boat trip, food overnight stay in a floating hotel and horse-drawn carriage riding. Journey took around 4½ hour with one stop. If we were in the habit of going to a hotel more than once, I would consider this hotel again. But the world is far too big for that. :) Anything you need to know- contact me, I will reply with as much info as I ca
