First of all I'm Egyptian. I went to this hotel on a family vacation. For the first glance it seems of a standard lower than that of normal 5* hotel all over Egypt, but it seems ok for a normal 4*. Reception is sort of helpful staff, but can't be considered professional ones. All in all was good & bearable. No heated swimming pools, but good animation team with special care for the kids especially in the restaurant where they have their special meal in their specified corner. Many things inside the rooms need to be fixed. It seems that they are using tap water as drinking water, where this water is not potable & the quality of food materials is so humble. No big variety in food. Finally, I & the whole family go an Acute Gastroenteritis where we suffered about a week from it even with medication.
I'm writing this only for the benefit of the members, not to be harmed in this hotel as I & my family did & finally in order not to affect tourism in our country. I really do prefer hurghada & Sharm El Sheikh, but may be other hotels will be better in Safage, where it is a very calm city.
