We had a most marvellous 7 day break in mid-March at this hotel. From the moment we arrived to when we left, the staff could not be more helpful if they tried. Our room cleaner was charming and helpful. The beach attendant would see us coming and immediately came over with two towels each and helped move the sun beds into the direction we wanted, likewise the pool attendants, dining staff and reception.
The food was fantastic – no buffets but dishes always freshly prepared to your order, to top restaurant standard, and half the menu choice changed each day. The dishes ranged from European, Middle Eastern to Indian, so there was always something you liked. In any case there was never a problem if you wanted something added or taken off.
The hotel is away from main Hurghada on a quiet piece of coast with its own beach and corals. The buildings are of a very high standard but in an understated way with plenty of room for everybody, whether in the dining areas, around the pool or on the beach.
All the rooms are suites in groups of about 5/6 bungalow suites, scattered across some 50 acres. They are not just places to sleep in, but with plenty of space to move and sit about, a separate dressing room for suitcases and clothes, and a walled courtyard with a couple of sun beds – particularly nice in the afternoons. There was a very good buggy service if you wanted a lift from/to the centre to/from your suite.
Yes, this time of the year it does get a bit windy but not too unpleasant so next time we shall try later in the year.
I also did the trip by car to Luxor, the Valley of the Kings and Karnak, a very long day but worth it.
