My wife and I spent two nights in this hotel as part of a 9 day group tour of Egypt. It was not a highlight of out trip. Reception was chaotic. Breakfasts were average but dinners were poor. Dinning room buffet style was always crowded. Staff appeared to be under pressure or just not paying attention. Bar staff likewise. Pleasent enough when their attention was attracted but prone to making mistakes like bringing the wrong drinks, making out the tab, etc. Also when I tried to settle my bill late on the night prior to departure it was not ready. I got the impression that the staff regarded the hotel as theirs and that guests were to be tolerated, except when tips were due. The management needs to get a grip on this establishment. Bed rooms are standard lego type, with no originality and the balconies are narrow. As all rooms face east to the sea they get no sun. Architecture in the bedroom wings is functional with uninspiring narrow corridors. The reception area is quite large but the airconditioning is inadequate. The heat was unbearable. Drink prices were exorbitant, even before the what appears to be a common Egyptian custom of adding tax, service charge, and a further 2% if charged to your room. The majority of guests appeared to be staying on an all inclusive bases so presumably prices did not concern them. We took a trip, on what was called a semi submersible but was in fact a boat with a glass sided hull, to the coral reef. Nevertheless, quite spectacular, really close to the coral and fish, but don't expect spectacular photographs. It lasted about an hour and a half not the two hours touted, but still an option for less athletic guests. For the more active snorkling, scubba diving, windsurfing, etc is all there. There is little else near the hotel.
