I enjoyed myself so much that i am going to take my entire family this year. Everyone was kind and friendly. The surroundings where beautiful. It is an unspoiled paradise. The food and the snorkling are amazing.

we have just returned from a week at this stunning paradise, and we want to go back a soon as possible for a longer stay. It is quite simply breathtaking, a beautiful place, the staff cant do enough for you and the food and drink are superb!! ( some cocktails are included in the all inclusive package).The room we had was right next to the active pool and was spotlessly clean, with remote control air conditioning and a beautiful domed ceiling. The gardens are lovely and they smell beautiful, we have travelled extensively and this is one of the nicest, friendliest places we have visited.

iWe have just returned from 16 glorious days at Calimera, again like some of the reviews we were concerned about the complex after reading some of the reviews. We think that some people must of stayed at a different place to us!! From the moment we arrived to the day we left the staff couldn't do enough for us, the Egyptian people are some of the most friendly people we have ever met.
On arrival (1900hrs) we were shown in to reception, given a cold drink while we checked in, a member of staff showed us to our room and then returned with our cases. The room was a double superior, it was massive, the bathroom had a shower which four people could've showered in!! We requested a sea view which we got. The room was clean and was cleaned every day, we recieved clean towels when asked for and had our sheets changed four times during our stay. Every day we recived fresh bottles of water in the fridge.
The food was fine considering the amount of people that they were catering for. In fact we found that there was too much choice!! We wanted to try every thing and we never finished everything on our plates!! The cakes,choices of breads and desserts were to die for. The themed evenings in the restaurant gave us the chance to eat freshly cooked local food, the best falafel i've ever tasted!! We never had any problem finding a table, we sat amongst the Italiens inside and out and felt no bad atmosphere at all. The restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. On entering the restaurant there are alcho gel dispensers which you are encouraged to use on you hands before helping yourself from the buffet. At lunchtime we ate at the snack bar by the Active Pool as we found the food in the restaurant too heavy at lunchtime.
The pool areas,beach and public loos were extremley clean. The pool filters were changed on a regular basis throughout the day, the loos were cleaner than some of the public loos in Britain!!! We never had a problem finding a sun lounger poolside or beach, yes we did put our towels down on the loungers on our way to breakfast!! (If you can't beat 'em join 'em!)
The gardens were always being attended, watering, mowing, pruning and sweeping was always going on. We have never seen such green grass and walked on such soft and spongey grass before! There are bins and ashtrays all over hence no dog ends or litter any where.
The beaches were good, but do take some protective footwear due to pieces of stray coral. My husband loved the snorkling and one morning came face to face with a 4ft Reef shark!! He was informed that they often come in the shallow waters to feed on the fish NOT the snorklers!! One morning whilst watching the sun rise of fthe end of the jetty we were lucky enough to see a pod of wild dolphins swim by AMAZING!! That morninig we also saw a Blue Spotted Ray in about 5 inches of water. On a calm day you can see many different fish from the jetty. The music from the Eden Beach did get a bit tiresome so we often caught the free bus to the peaceful Abo Dabab beach highly recommended. We used to pre order a lunch bag and go off to Abo Dabab for the day, the lunch bag consists of 5 filled rolls, 4 pieces of fruit, a bottle of water and a carton of juice and that is for one person!!
We NEVER had to pay for water, you are welcome to help yourself from the water dispensers at the bars you are NOT limited to the amount of cups you fill!!! You are charged if you want a BOTTLE of water though. The bar staff especially Mohamed and Hamed who worked The Active Bar were fantastic. Many an evening they wanted to learn Cockney slang which was hilarious and not forgetting Zidan who the Relax Bar we are missing them all!!
I did get Egyptian belly (through being a pig and eatin too much!) went to the hotel GP who gave me an injection and some tablets 3hrs later I was fine and back on the beach!!!
We got on fine with the Italiens and Germans and found them polite, infact some more polite than some Brits we've encountered on our hols!!
Don't go to Calimera if all your kids eat are chicken nuggets and fish fingers and you want you carvery on a Sunday because wont get it!!! If you only want to mix with Brits book book with a tour operator who has exclusivity on certain hotels then you can have a home from home holiday!!! But I bet you will still find something to complain about!!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!! Hello also to Sarah and Max from Seaford, Eastbourne.

I was slightly weary of going on this holiday after reading some horrible reviews, but once i was there it was clarified that those reviews were complete rubbish and i had nothinig to worry about. The resort is just beautiful with a fantastic team working there, everyone of the staff would bend over backwards to make the guests happy. We were continuely told we could do or have what ever we wanted. The staff really made it feel like a home from home we made so many friends and will truly miss them until we return for a second visit. The people outside the hotel were also really friendly, every shop we went to we got invited in for a cup of tea and a smoke. The food was lovely and had a very wide variety to choose from. I would definatley recommend going into the dessert during the night, the stars are amazing out there, bit scary going out into the darkness but with a good guide you are totally safe. All in all this was the best two weeks of my life, we were treated like royalty, made some great friends and the place was just gorgeous.
