We stayed here for a week at the beginning of April and had a lovely relaxing time, weather was amazing, very hot, don't think I could cope in Summer season as it was 38 now.
We found the food a bit repetitive but lots of choice, drinks were fine although the vodka and gin tasted the same !! The staff were friendly although some ,only if you tipped ( i know this is their culture )we weren't aware the first night so ordered a drink in the bar outside, then wondered why they were not too keen to give us another one !!!!!! When we have been All Inclusive before we have'nt carried money especially around the pool areas, but it's a definite must.
I also felt that the cleanliness could have been better just little details , maybe it's the lack of a womens touch ( no women workers in Egypt , sorry this seems sexists ) for instance the areas around the light switches, skirtings, the hairdryers in the bathroom.
We went with Red Sea holidays which were great all smooth sailing, loved the fact that one of their policies is that you can keep your room until just before you leave.
This was our first time in Egypt and we weren't prepared really for the constant bombardment when we left the hotel either as we are not very assertive.
After all this, we had a great week but would possibly not chose to go back to Egypt due to the constant bombardment and constant tipping. I certainly do not want them to change their culture but I just choose not to go their when I can pay the same to go to Cyprus or the like with less pressure.
