This was our second consecutive year at this hotel and resort, visiting for October half term. Given all the troubles in Egypt over the run up to the holiday we weren't nervous but more intrigued as to how the hotel would have been affected by lack of tourists from other countries not permitting Egypt holidays.
The first few days were definitely quieter than the previous year but by mid week when all the tour operators started coming again the place quickly filled up.
The nice thing was it hadn't changed, we even got the same room as loved that one so much last year (and I would never ask for the same of anything !). Many of the staff recognised us which was amazing given how many people they must see and made a special fuss of ensuring we had a good table for dinner etc.
the children's entertainment this year was fabulous led by the superb Gerry, what a star. For the first time we went to some of the adult entertainment which was also very good.
The food was excellent again and there had been a few improvements on a couple of things since the previous year. The beach as wonderful as ever with plenty of sun beds always available and drinks service. Snorkelling was super again too and we went out on one of the ocean cruise day trips including a super lunch where we saw turtles and saw cows. Excellent trip.
Once again I can't fault the hotel or the resort, the staff are absolutely fantastic, the weather continually perfect and the facilities ideal.
May try somewhere else this year for a change but have no reservations about recommending this hotel and will definitely return!
