After reading many bad reviews of this hotel, I wasn`t happy we booked it in combination with a Nile cruise, but I was positively surprised. We had two different rooms - one before and one after the cruise. The first one was better, we actually got a free upgrade to a superior deluxe room. The room was simple, but nice, only the bathroom wasn`t the newest. The second room had the actual category we booked (superior) and one could clearly see the difference - this room was even more simple than the previous one, so far from being "superior", but it was okay.
This is a huge hotel which can be a problem when trying to get a place at the restaurant - it was usually very crowded, especially in the evening. The food quality wasn`t constant - we usually managed to find something delicious, but there were also not too tasty dishes. The service was okay, sometimes we had to wait longer to get our drinks, but altogether the dining part was okay.
The beach was nice, despite of the fact that the chairs were obviously not the newest. Still, it was a nice experience swimming and sunbathing there. The only negative thing was the garbage floating in the water (tossed from ships) from time to time.
The fitness room is a disaster - expensive and the machines are VERY old.
Altogether it was a nice holiday. There are for sure better hotels to stay, but I guess we still got a great value for the money we paid.
