Travelled from the 18th July for 11 nights, 2 adults 3 children ages, 6, 15 and 16. Lovely hotel, clean, tidy, rooms really spacious, had superior rooms courtesy of Thomas Cook no extra charge! The weather was bearable, in the 40's most days, however at times I did pray for some rain! You can just jump into the pool when you got too hot, although we were unable to book day trips as I just didn't want to be in the searing heat with children. We were advised not to eat or drink outside of the hotel so bearing this in mind we spent most of our time in the hotel. We did venture out a couple of times, firstly to the sister hotel, I cant remember the name of it now! Which had a bar and towel facilities for guests from the Royal Hotel. My son and ex partner did some scuba diving, we didn't go through Thomas Cook as I had read reviews previously on Trip advisor with people recommending Mickey Blue Eyes and Diamond Geezer at the sister hotel, they only charged £30 English per person, my son who is 16 said it was an amazing experience and one he will never forget, in the sea with sting rays and tropical fish circling them! As for the food at the hotel there was always something that would take your fancy, pizza, chips etc for kids, vegetables, fish and meat dishes for adults daily. The only thing I would say is that as there are only two restaurants to eat in it can get a little boring, the al a carte restaurants were not ready when we visited, but however were not part of the all inclusive, neither was the mini bar in the room, a bit upsetting as I love this on holiday! They have a sky bar which I situated as you can imagine on the top floor however drinks are chargeable here. The only negative would be the evening entertainment which was truly disastrous, probably the worst I have encountered in 12 years of family holidaying all over the world, but I believe this may have been due to the hotel being new, you would literally sit at a table waiting for entertainment, this would last 40 minutes at the most then that was it, the music would play from a cd player till 11pm the that's your lot!! The all inclusive finished at 12pm so if you wanted to stay up you would just sit at the table with nothing going on, except of course if you had the pleasure of great company! A visit to Naama Bay is a must, to haggle for the handbags and purses etc, just take a taxi from the from of the hotel approx. £5 English each way, just nice to get out of the hotel, and we also went on the evening visit to the shopping arena Soho Square with Thomas Cook, this trip worked out cheaper than taking our own taxi, again it was nice to visit somewhere different. Lastly if you are unfortunate enough like me to suffer from the stomach problems and the runs, trust me you will know when you get them because the pains are awful, do not suffer in silence, I brought remedies from Boots at home but they don't work at all, go to reception and request Antinal, it costs around £1.30 English and is their own antibiotic medication to rid the bug, it started to work for me after just 3 tablets, remember to continue the course, its very common in Egypt to get it, they call it 'Pharaohs Revenge'! I was the only one out of 5 that had it, also sun cream factor 50 is a must in August, keep hydrated and continuously hand wash, all in all we had a lovely trip and I would return in the future.
