We spent only one night in this amazing hotel. Unfortunately we were the only guests because everone else cancelled (with no good reason) due to the recent clashes in Tahrir square in Cairo. Please don't cancel your trip to Egypt. We were there for the supposed clashes and protests (Nov 19 to Dec 6th) and we never felt unsafe. We did 5 days in the desert which began with our stay at the amazing Sands, Baharia. Family run hotel amids an orange grove beneath the starry desert skies. The rooms are charming and large. The dinner and breakfast were lovely and exceeded our expectations by a mile. The service was perfect. We were offered Shesha (our first time) around the campfire after dinner. You have to experience this to believe it.
