We had a fantastic time at this all inclusive resort. We were a family of 13, whom enjoyed the service and the food. The animation team was first class and deserve a massive pay rise for all their efforts.
The rooms were not great but they did provide comedy value. Problems were fixed within a flash. Everyone's wardrobe door fell off but was always fixed, to fall off again the next day. But this made us smile.
The food was OK, there was such a good range and the quality was good. In the end, we realised that the local supplies were poor but this would be the same at all hotels.
I did some fantastic diving at the sister hotel - saw a turtle within a few minutes. However, just some caution, the dive centre is nice but they like to convert between three different currencies. Try to either stick to sterling or local. Do a few trips and get a big discount BUT do not then get stung on the conversion. Actually, it was when paying it was converted to local currency. Agree the local currency price first and then all is good.
The hotel has a red flag policy for tradesmen trying to sell you things. I suggest you use it!
Sharm is very expensive and so is Soho Square - but you must visit.
We all went on the Pyramid trip. Some on the bus and some by plane. The bus is an experience and perhaps something you need to do for the real experience. My 65 year old mum opted for the bus trip - laughed all the way.
go there. If you have kids, this is a fantastic place to be.
Smile and join in on the dance - it is fun.
