We read the reviews before booking direct with Red Sea Holidays. Our room (535) was better then we expected but as with most hotels, if you look hard enough you will find minor things that need sorting - yes it could do with a redecoration but it was extremely clean (our cleaner - Naser, really looked after us), the bed was superb! The food (we were all inclusive) was a bit samey but there was a good choice from the 3 restaurants. We found that the Palm best suited our taste. We had no problems with the food and did not hear of anyone being il (as usually happens). The Beach was superb, but if you wanted a sunbed close to the sea then you needed to get your towels on one before breakfast. However, if you were not worried about this, there were plenty available further back. We wanted a relaxing week in the sun away from the British winter and we certainly got this. Just make sure you take a sweater for the evenings as it does get quite cold when the sun goes down. There are also alot of German and Russian guests so bear this in mind, especially with the food as the hotel caters mainly for them. The other thing to be aware of is the drinks. Not all of the bars are included in the "All Inclusive" which can be frustrating. We found that if you wanted bottled water without being charged, get this from the Beach Bar in the morning. We got about 6 bottles a day to keep us going. Overall we found the hotel to be very good and the weather was excellent. For what we paid, we found it excellent value for money.
