Nice hotel, smart, well-maintained public areas and gardens. Very polite and helpful staff (perhaps erring on the side of too polite and too helpful, if there is such a thing). Nice beach and views of Tiran Island. Rooms seem to be of a good size, well maintained with air conditioning and ceiling fan. I wasn't convinced my aircon was working particularly well, but with it on, it was definitely cooler in the room than outside.
The only downside for me was the temperature in the gym. It is a small gym for the size of the hotel, 1 running machine, 2 cycles and a stepper/crosstrain machine, free weights and multigym. The machines are all relatively new and work well, however the staff in the adjacent Body Art Spa seemed to take great delight in turning off the air conditioning in the gym every time I went there. I asked why and apparently each time it was because someone was having a massage in the Spa and was getting cold. So unless you enjoy training in the heat, then I would give the gym a miss, as it's way too hot without air conditioning.
Indian restaurant and Italian restaurant both provide good food and service, but you can't just walk in, bookings have to be made by 3.30pm as I recall, so some element of pre-planning is required.
There is free wifi available in reception, enough bandwith for Facetime or similar.
