We really love this hotel. It was our second time there and the food has improved enormously. We were upgraded in our all-inclusive package to include the new Terrasse Restaurant which is waiter-service with really good food, though we also like the main Oyoun Restaurant with its wide variety of local food and flavours. There are also other choices of restaurants.....the fish restaurant, for example, has a menu with no extra charge within the all-inclusive price. If you like a glass of wine, that has also improved.
The hotel has a really good position on the beach, with a nice walk in either direction along a path between the hotels and the beach, and the main pool terrace is lovely.
We didn't have children with us, but my observation is that it's excellent for children. There's a nursery-type room near the beach where children can paint etc out of the sun and, alongside, there's a climbing frame in a grassy area. There are also very pleasant young women who will look after children. For older children, there's the hotel's own aqua park with water slides.
We had a lovely room on the ground floor, on the sunny side of the hotel. Ok, the bathroom was a bit 'tired', but scrupulously clean - as is the whole hotel. What's missing in comparison with the bigger, glitzier hotels? Well, fluffy bathrobes and towelling slippers.....but I can live without those because everything else is great.
The service is as good as you'll get anywhere.....the efficient, friendly staff have a very strong customer service ethic.
This is a smaller hotel than most in the area and one thing they have to watch is that the Animation Team can be too intrusive, a little old-fashioned, on the 'hi-de-hi' lines. At times their music was defeaning....we complained and they turned it down. Let's hope that continues! It's the only 'down' side of the hotel, from our point of view.
We've been to other, ostensibly posher hotels in Egypt, but I have no hesitation at all in recommending this one. We shall certainly go back.
