We were a party of 8, including 4 teenagers and the hotel was great. The pool and gardens were fantastic, best pool I've been in. All areas inside and out were very clean and the room boys very friendly and we loved their towel animals everyday! As has been written before, the staff were either very friendly or looked to be fed up.However most were in the friendly group. Memo the animation guy was great and the kids loved him. We didn't get round to booking the restaurants of an evening unfortunately which although the food in the buffets restaurants were nice, it got to be a bit samey after every night. We all ended up with different degrees of tummy upset throughout the holiday but we were told it is to be expected in Egypt so make sure you pack enough Imodium! Two of us had the Cleopatra spa treatments that were lovely.Just remember to haggle the price. We paid £60 but found people who had paid £45! The down sides were going out the hotel and being hassled by people in the street. Just ignore them usually helps but annoying all the same and on our arrival we weren't allowed to take our own cases to our rooms. The bell boys insisted and of course just stood there waiting for a tip to be given. As the first night of the holiday we had no change so they done exceptionally well out of us! So make sure you have small notes to tip. Booking trips is also cheaper outside of the hotel. We used Sinai safari adventures which we looked up before going away and contacted once there. They are an English run company too and provide their own guides as well. If I returned to Sharm I would use this hotel again.
