All of the staff are excellent, nothing was too much trouble and they always had a smile on their faces, Aaymon in the restaurant, Mohammed reception, Ahmed our room boy room 768, Hussein pool bar were all exceptional. The First Choice Rep Mohammed is the best rep i have ever come across and I Travel a lot. He was so helpful and did over and above of what he was required to do, he also has a very good sense of humour.

The Hotel is second to none, spotlessly clean everywhere. The pool was heated and a very nice design. Food was very good with a fresh choice everyday. I liked the fact the the chefs were constantly checking that there was plenty of food available and that it had not overheated in the serving dishes.

When i saw all the children there i thought it was going to be noisy, but i must say the animation team kept them all entertained and the children looked like they were having a fantastic time. Well done to them

The resort is quiet, the nearest town is an hour away, so if your looking for a quiet time, like snorkeling and diving this is the place for you. I went snorkeling for 4 hours with 2 dolphins on the reef which is just off the beach, which is great that you don't have to pay to go on a trip. The corals and fish were fantastic, the best i have ever seen. You can hire wet suits, snorkels. flippers and masks for about £8 per day, or you can buy in the resort. Even if you don't snorkel you can see the reef and fish from the jetty. I will definitely visit this resort again. Even the management were actively asking if everything was alright with our stay. I was very impressed and could not find a single thing wrong. Great Hotel.and resort.

Room Tip: Go on the safari trip, and Luxor fantastic experiences

Not long home from our jollies. We was looking for a cheap, relaxing break and that's what we got.
You will need to pay £13 each for your visa when you arrive, well I say when you arrive, we paid on the coach on the way to our hotel. Children's visa is the same price.
Arrived at hotel welcomed by hotel manager, checked and were quickly taken to our rooms.
The hotel is small (about a 100 rooms) but we liked that. You get a much better holiday because you form friendships with staff, they work so hard and long hours, but always have a smile and more importantly the barman always remember's your favourite tipple. You walk up to the bar and he rattles off our order and tells you to sit down and he will bring it with "pleasure". The same with our pool waiter, he always knew our order.
The pool is small so you can see the animation team girls do the morning stretch class and water gym. These last for about 45 mins, so if you are interested, you can burn off some of the calories you have consumed.
Again the gym is well equiped but we didn't use them, but see other do so.
Now let's talk about the sea because we did want to go snorkelling. This time of year it's bloody freezing. The staff told us that the weather in february is up and down but it heats up at the end of March. Then the sea takes a couple of months to warm up. So really the best time to go is May onwards for the perfect holiday.
We travelled with our friends and even though the weather and the sea temp could have been a bit better, we had a fab time so really, your holiday is want you make it!
Oh yeah, one other tip. Lock your door until your ready to leave coz the room boy seemed to be always trying to catch you out! Which he did on our last day. I would say lucky for him but I bet his eyes are bleeding now! From oh my god what a sight! Anyway, go on book up. We can truly recommend it and they love the Brits because we are polite. Happy holidays.

Lovely resort in the middle of no where - so beware of getting bored . Just swimming snorkelling & diving ...that's it. Always a cold wind blowing - no one ever mentions that !!
Hotel is very good - clean rooms , staff friendly, food excellent but repedative.

we stayed at the hotel just before Christmas 2011 and it was just perfect ! The hotel is quite small, not one of those big hotels with thousands of rooms difficult to locate, the personnel was very friendly, service brilliant, food very good and different every day, everything very clean. There was also a team of youngsters in charge of animation and they were just brilliant both for adults and kids. Very nice swimming pool reaching 30 degrees in December ... Available on site : swimming pool, the beach (bar and food + long chairs + service available free of charge) within 5 minutes walk, diving centre with acceptable prices (11 euros for snorkeling per day including all equipment) kids club, sport room nicely equipped and at 200m the aquapark.

Room Tip: family rooms are on the ground level with direct access to the swimming pool (but not noisy).

It's quite a small property. The location is not front-line beach but second row a short walk from the sea-side. We stayed for a week from June 17 to 24 and came for diving. Can't fault the hotel nor the dive centre nor the actual diving, even the weather was perfect ranging from 32 - 35 °C during mid-day down to 23 - 26 at night , the sea at 27 - 28, winds were moderate. The A/C is not too noisy and adjustable.

The rooms are nicely decorated, comfortable bed, large walk-in shower, nice fair sized balcony, plenty of space in the closets. There is a kettle in the room , the socket is behind the cup-board ! Food is OK, house-wine also, I don't like the beer. The -Chocolate- Chef came around at dinner for a couple of days and then I needed to hunt him down as I was getting addicted. There are two - à la carte restaurants - (paying) one italian and the other arabic both with indoor and outdoor setting .To top all this is the generally amicable personnel from gardener to GM.
The entertainment team was beautiful and I can't judge if they were good or bad since we were busy with diving most of the time and wouldn't bother with anything else. The vast majority of the guests were Italian and german speaking , there were only a few english voices. Occupancy was about 60 % and the general atmosphere was just most relaxing, the ladies particularly the younger generation dressed up quite chic for dinner while the men tried their best.

On the day we checked-out Theresa of Public Relation came to wave good-by to everyone leaving that morning and I suspect there was a tear in her eyes but then I am sure she will be all smiles again greeting the new arriving guests. We would have loved to stay longer.
