e-mailed hotel for a nice double bedded room and received a promising response. unfortunately the room given was next to some construction work with twin beds and no hot water. we spoke to reception and the next day we were moved to another room BUT a bit of disruption when you only have 7 days. Staff extremely good and friendly in all areas and this makes up for some shortfalls. We went all inclusive and i can testify that in somebody elses review they state stick to wine and beer,the vodka is like paint stripper and the other local spirits are not far behind the vodka. The beer is good and wine drinkable. The mixers are shweppes and coke so if you want a nice g&t bring your own gin. The buffet is varied and you can always find something to eat. The pool is great and the jetty into the red sea is superb for snorkelling.
A major feature of this hotel is the grounds which are well maintained and quite spectacular with water features and bridges. watch out for the mosquitoes, you can buy a can of "off" from the shops across from the hotel entrance for £4. what ever word you want to put in front works. we had no more bites.
Tip small and often although you need 10s and 20s egypt pound notes and they are hard to come by over here. The exchange rate there is much better 11+ to the pound, get them at the airport coming in.
Do tip because they will appreciate it and you are not giving a lot but it will mean a lot to them.
The animation team are as enthusiastic as can be and they are great with the kids.
A secret gem is the spa pool hidden under the rocks by the italian restraunt good shade on a hot day for a hour.
overall good holiday
