I travelled to the resort last December with my family. Went on recommendations from travel agent. Had planned another trip to Dominian Republic but were persuaded to try the resort. We were pleased with the price etc. and looked forward to the holiday.
On arrival it was a bit manic at the airport. My advise is to keep your family close to you, especially young children as they could easily get lost in the mayhem.
The airport porters will try and fleece you, so if you do wish to use them have some small currency available.
The trip from the airport to the resort was short, which was good. The accommodation was clean.
The resort was not too busy. The entertainment staff tried their best, but with the same holiday makers getting involved every time it became a bit labourious.
The swimming pools were absolutely freezing. Now I'm not a wimp when it comes to cold water, but this was ice cold. The evidence was shown by the fact that very few dared to venture in to the pool thoughout the holiday. This was very disappointing. My son loves the pool and it's what alot of families go away for. Not to be able to use the pool without freezing was a massive disappointment. Honestly my skin was buring when when I came out from the water as it was so cold.
Food was average. Most staff were friendly and would try to help out.
No mini bar as advertised at time of booking.
Night time entertainment, well ermm.
I hope the resort has improved.
If you plan to go Quad biking, top tip, make your own way to one of the many hire outlets. Haggle for a price and the guides will take you out. Three of use went and it was great. bonus is you can go as fast as your skill level as you do not have a big group to slow you down. On our was in from biking there were massive groups of fifty or so in one line!
After this experience I doubt i will return to Eygpt again. I could gone on about lots of other minus points about the resort.
If I did go again I would probably go self catering or half board and stay near the town centre.
