We stayed here as a couple in January 2013 and decided to write this review, although a little late because we were looking to go back. It was a great time of year to go as it was peaceful and not too busy and just what we needed as a pick-me-up from the winter blues. It does go dark early this time of year in Egypt but it is still warm enough to sunbathe. We highly recommend this resort, we are in our 40's-50's but found it was for all ages. The staff here are the best we have ever come across, they go out of their way for you especially Ahmed in the main buffet he made us feel like royalty, getting to know everything we liked. The food everywhere was fantastic you can never go hungry here and the 24hr bar does make a difference to your holiday just for early morning/late night coffees (honest!) We were amazed how big the resort was and you can use all of it. The rooms were big, modern and very clean, the bed was big and comfy. The gardens are beautifully kept. The beach was the highlight for us because the sea life was breathtaking and you don't have to go far out to see the coral and fish although there is a jetty if you want to. You do get approached for massages, excursions etc but a polite no does the trick. There is plenty of shops, bars, pools, places to eat and activities we didn't feel the need to go out. The only fault we can find, like other guests, is the rudeness of some nationalities but don't let this put you off. We did venture out to Naama Bay as this resort offers a free bus service but we couldn't wait to get back, the shop owners were too pushy and we felt threatened and we were insulted for not buying anything from them or entering their shops/cafes. We also went on the stargazing trip, it was great fun and something we will never forget, well worth the money to ride a camel in the desert, learn about the culture, eating and dancing around the campfire, seeing the sunset and looking at the stars close-up through powerful telescopes. Thanks to the evening entertainment at this resort we won a boat trip where we could go snorkeling, see a shipwreck and have lunch, wow... what an experience and to think we would never have done this if it wasn't for the generosity of the resort. We will definitely go back but next time take more change with us to tip as the staff really do deserve it. Great memories.
