Okay should of written a review by now just never got round to it. What can i say what an amazing holiday! The hotel was absolutely awsome. From the first to the last moment nothing wrong. On arrival check in was not rushed what so ever and yes okay was a bit odd leaving your suitcase outside reception with the porter but it was fine. Have some change to tip the staff member the guy easily pushed 16 suitcases up a hill in 30 degree heat and did it without breaking a sweat incredible.
The thomson rep was really good the welcome meeting yes we know their boring but so helpful espesh in egypt unless you have been before. The pool at the hotel is great, only bad point is that the pool needs a paint. The rooms are big and roomy, view from the balcony was great with the pool view just make sure u dont lock yourself out like we did twice there is no handle on the outside. The hotel food i thought was really really good, there is always plenty of choice, the amount of people we found sitting there saying there was nothing for them to eat what a joke!!! the bbq outside is fantastic for dinners chicken wings legs tighs we found it after second night and what a find hardly anybody used it.! the two a la carte restaurants were also very very good they say u can only use them once a week but that didnt stop us it gives you an excuse to dress up a bit and is much more civilised the waiters were so polite and fun we had such a laugh with all the staff.
bar staff were amazing always so polite and helpful, there was usually a que at nighttime so get 2 or 3 drinks at a time. Yeh okay for about 4 days out of 14 i had a dodgy tummy but just take te tablets with ya and its sorted :) the hotel is under a flightpath but didnt bother me or my ex partner at the time we quite enjoted seeing all the different planes going over, u can't hear them in ur room.The hotel is near lots of wee nick nacky shops and yes u doo get a bit hasseled but as long as your polite to them they generally leave ya alone. We decided one day to treat ourselves to a mcdonalds and holly bajeebus the portion size is huuuuuuge.
Just accross the street from the mcdonalds is a wee hut falcon excursions book everything you want to do in egypt through them, pyramids, valley of the kings, quad biking, ultimate desert experience red sea cruise and trip to the water park was everything we did when we were there broke up the holiday nicely, pay in english pounds though infact in egypt take as much english money as you can the egyptians dont like their own currency becuase they save it all up and wait until the exchange rate goes through the roof. All in all what a fantastic holiday and i would love to go back at some point :D
Take more english money than egyptian.
Take plenty of clothes espesh if going into the desert
Take imodium or similar tablets take few packs
Take mini set of speakers for ur ipod or mp3 player for evenings in the room
Don't book anything through the travel rep it is over priced and heard pretty bad reviews from the cairo and luxor trips.
Always say please and thank you i know basic manners but the staff and people will domore for you if you polite the amount of people we saw being rude to them was disgusting.
if you are planning on going into the desert take desert scarfs(is pic) with you or shop around they try charge you a fortune for them at the place, if going into the sea the wee shop next to the hotel sells seasocks wegot them for about £7 for 2 pairs
