First impressions of this hotel were very good, it's very clean and we found most of the staff very friendly. The waiters remember you if you tip them (and it doesn't have to be very much) and you'll find your glass is never empty! Also, we found the various towel sculptures in our bedroom very funny, the crocodile being the best!!
While I'm not too fussy about food my husband is and he couldn't fault it - there were plenty of choices for dinner and always something he liked. Contrary to a previous review, there WERE chips, but mainly at lunch-time.
We preferred the pools to the beach, (the windbreakers make it feel quite claustrophobic) but the sea was warm and you could walk out for a fair distance without it being deep, though shoes are essential because of the coral.
The shopping mall can be quite annoying because the shopkeepers do try to entice you into their shops, but just say no and they will leave you alone! Same goes for Naama bay!
We went on a couple of Thomson trips, a red sea cruise and quad-biking in the desert - both of which we thoroughly enjoyed, and we found the reps really good. I also had a hot stone massage in the spa which was admittedly pretty expensive but really enjoyable!!
We would go back, can't beat the weather at this time of the year.More
