Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our stay. The hotel grounds are immaculate and well looked after. The rooms are nice, very clean and have a fridge which is refilled every day, a safe, plenty or wardrobes, decent aircon and also a fan on the ceiling. The bed was also firm but comfortable.
The staff in the hotel are excellent, our cleaner was so friendly. The main chef in the Indian restaurant was also very nice and if u asked he will make u a filled naan bread.
I wasnt a fan of the entertainment team. Sorry but I don't know names but larger girl always seemed drunk and the younger guys were very over the top and silly not entertaining. I would suggest the hotel looks at bringing in some outside acts to improve.
The problem with this hotel and its not the hotels fault is that its full of Russians. We saw some of the worst sunburnwe have ever witnessed on their kids and yet they did nothing to cover it up or protect. The mothers talked to their kids like dirt, dragged them around and make them take photos of the parents laid in seductive positions. We saw this alot - its very strange!! Not to mention their manners!! Try to ignore them and it won't bother you, it was only the last few days they really started to bug me.
Its quite funny because the staff in the hotel clearly think the same about them. They love the English because generally we are polite and well manored and this shows in the service they provide.
The food is ok for the first few days. Breakfast is fine as they do fresh pancakes, toast and omellets. Lunch is ok for chips, pizza etc but dinner is the same as lunch really. Unless your into goulash and weird cheap looking hotdog sausages mixed with olives spinach and all other dodgy type russian looking foods. The bbqs were ok but meat could be quite tough and fatty sometimes. Chicken was always fine.
We were in egypt for 9 days and only had buffet for tea 3 times. The others we went to hard rock cafe, naama bay or ordered mcdelivery mcdonalds to the hotel.
Fresh naan bread and fresh pizzas are the best bits. Also having icecreams around the pool is brilliant!!
One of our favourite things about this hotel is the unbelievably comfortable sunbeds and loungers. No joke, they actually are like memory foam mattresses!! They are so comfortable!! Make sure your up before 9am though to secure them!
The water slides are an excellent way of breaking the day up in between sunbathing. All of them are excellent and lifeguards are very cautios.
The hotel has a coffee bar outside and 2 inside all of which were very good and served tea, coffee mocha's, cappuccinos, iced coffee/tea's etc. also they do fresh creppes on demand!
Also on site is a "English" style pub that shows all the sports. I watched a few football games here. They also do pub food but u have to pay for this.
Overall I'd return to this hotel, but only for a very good price. I'd also take into consideration that il need to take more spending money as we'd eat out more often.
