We stayed here in Oct 2011 and this was our second stay on Sharm'. On our arrival we were given a welcome drink that looked loke Night Nurse and tasted much the same. The reception staff were indifferent and although there was only us to check in it took best part of 30 minutes. We were then shown to our room which was clean and well laid out. The next day we went to the pool where we were greeted by Mohammed and made most welcome. The guy never stopped smiling and was always helpful. In the evening we went to the restaurant to be told that there was no bottled water available and all other alcoholic drinks had to be paid for. The food was of a poor quality and there was little variation. The only place to take advantage of the "All inclusive" deal was at the pool bar. This is fine if you don't mind being jostled by VERY rude eastern Europeans. Lunch was mainly of the frozen pizza and fries type and you had to get there fast or the food would run out. After 2 nights we seriously considered moving to the Baron Palms hotel, where we has spent a smashing fortnight in July. Luckily for us, we met a lovely couple who felt the same way that we dis and from then on in we left the hotel in the evenings to go to the local shopping mall where you can get a very nice meal at quite a good price. The hotel and pool was clean and well kept, it's just the staff and the food made this very much a "B" lister. I think that if you have never been to an All Inclusive hotel before, then you might think that this is what it's all about, let me be honest and say that you can get a much better holiday for your money. Aklthough the hotel was not the best, this won't stop us from returning to Egypt in 2013!
