Having returned last week (staying All Inclusive in Room 1204) we could hardly fault this hotel, its staff and amenities. All the managers and staff were always on hand, very pleasant and helpful. The hotel is beautiful, the room was very comfortable, with presents on arrival, and a present being left each day. The food was plentiful and very varied and tasty - lots of choices, and of good quality too. The beach was lovely as the bay is beautiful, with crystal clear water and lots of different fish.
This hotel and service is pure luxury - a pillow menu to choose from, and while you are lounging on the beach, chefs offering melon, figs or bruchetta, and even a member of staff offering to clean your glasses! How decadent is that! Even the beach towels are replaced in your room while you are at dinner - superb service! We did the boat trip to see the coral and fishes which was brilliant, and ride quad bikes into the desert to watch the sunset which was amazing.
Although we did not use the internet or have the massage, we did use the free laundry service which was great - we came home with only 1 days washing!
Our only qualms were the uncomfortable flights as it was a First Choice plane and very hot and cramped. I advise not to pay the rep the extra £12 for 2 people to sit together as we were placed across the aisles - not together at all! And we did try the Italian meal at the Pomodoro restaurant but would not recommend this as it is a set menu and very disappointing. However the a la carte was very good but we could not fault the food anyway. In the evenings, if you need to be entertained then you will be left wanting! It was 35 degrees each day and really hot by 8am, however, the sunset was at 5.30 while we were there (7-14 October) and it seemed most people were ready for dinner by 6.30 - some needed to chill out and break the routine from home! And why complain about things you cannot get at home - this is a foreign country and you are only there a limited time!
Summing up, we had an excellent stay and highly compliment this hotel and staff. Having been to different resorts in Egypt 7 times before, this by far exceeded out expectations and will be returning to this hotel for our main holiday next year. Pure luxury!
