Just Got back from this Hotel on the 10th of July 2013.
Firstly let me say The thomsons flight sucks Nothing to do No movie no tv nothing 5 hours 30 mins of sheer cramped Boredom
This Hotel was Nice Not Great simply Nice. There was nothing about it that set apart from others.
The Rooms are on the small side But Nicely fitted out And they are Kept very clean and fresh Towels Daily. Ahmed our room cleaner works long hot hours and takes pride in his Job. Walk in shower no matter what time of day boiling hot water.Soft Drinks and water in mini bar everyday free of charge.
Outdoors the Gardens are well groomed green and lush grass. The gardeners spray a bug killer daily so not much flying biting bugs in the Evening.A 2000 meter paved walkway going round the bay is nice to have a walk round in the Evening. The Beach IS where this Hotel fails They have used desert sand Not beach sand to build there beach.
Desert Sand being lighter has need drawn into the sea and killed a large area of Coral. And makes the water VERY VERY cloudy. In 2 feet of water you can see your own feet when you look down. They have cordoned off what Coral is left in the bay so unless you are a very good swimmer and are prepared to go into the deep channel. You`ll not see Much Marine life.
The Main Buffet Restaurant was so-so The Omelette station for breakfast was good You could even Boil your own eggs if you wanted. The Pasta station for Dinner was Good But limited to Tomato sauce. If you ask for white sauce they simply pour milk into the pan lol. The main problem with the Restaurant is you never ever get a HOT meal. Unless you like beef that goes Moo when you cut into it you`ll be on Chicken for your stay.
Ice Cream is available all day which is great cause in the Egyptian heat anything that cools you down is a bonus.
But then there is Amanda what can i say about Her :) An English lass that works for the Hotel If you have any requests or problems go see Her. She`ll sort it out for you if its possible.
We would Not go back to this Hotel. We would advice anyone going to Marsa Alam to book the Resta Grand 1 mile down the road. Or the Resta reef only a three star but the Food is great.
Jim and Lorna Welsh Room 2814 sea view that was very nice.
