After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we were already expecting high standards and it didn't disappoint! As soon as we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with cocktails and met the assistant manager whom informed us that the manager had upgraded us to a sea view as it was a special occasion. The guest relations were excellent and friendly and constantly attending to our needs without causing a hassle.
The hotel was so close to the beach that you could almost jump from the pool onto it! The beach was clean. There was an amazing coral reef on our beech which I spent much time around. There was thousands of fish here including sting rays, puffer fish, clown fish, lion fish etc. It was better than the coral reefs I had seen in Sharm.
The entertainment was great, and wasn't like cheesy entertainment I have seen at other hotels. A lot of the entertainment included the guests taking part which was great. There was also dance groups and professional dancers which came in and performed which was enjoyable.
The food was good, and there was a different theme for each night. There was plenty to choose from and you was never stuck without food. A personal favourite of mine was the grills night where it was fillet beef which was cooked and presented like an al a carte restaurant.
The room was kept constantly clean and our cleaner made towel art every day for us which was nice to come back to. We had a lovely window seat along with a balcony, The bathroom was great and the shower was excellent with two different types of shower heads, one normal and one like a rainfall effect on the ceiling.
Overall this is a fantastic hotel and I would recommend it to everybody! I don't usually go back to the same hotel as I like to try other places but I would 100% come back here again!
