“Amazing, fantastic, unforgettable”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

For a three star hotel we were all pleasantly surprised. The hotel was comfortable, rooms nice, and everything clean. Small downside would be the food and drink, though you have to give the chef his dues, he would willingly prepare something special for fussy eaters.

The location is beautiful and would highly recommend going out to the bay at 5am to see the sunrise and to go snorkelling before breakfast.

The staff were what really made the stay unforgettable, welcoming and always up for a chat, everyone would ask if there was anything they could do to improve our stay. The animation team were great, despite being quiet they did their best to host fun activities, and got us involved (which we wouldn't normally) without being pushy.

I would go back now if I could!

Stayed for a fortnight in March. The hotel was clean and tidy,but the best resource of the hotel was the staff. Ehab ,Osama, Saad,Ahmed members of the bar staff soon remembered what our drinks were. All the restaurant staff including the chefs were friendly and helpful. The front of house manager and all his staff also need to mentioned because nothing is too much trouble. Thanks to EVERYBODY at the hotel it made our holiday a GREAT holiday. Also thanks to Ellie and the animation team.

Stayed for two weeks in march. Once again a nice relaxing time. Thanks to Saied and all his staff in the restaurant. All ways happy and smiling. Room kept clean and tidy. Mr Mahmoud Farouk front desk manager was so helpful. The animation team came round every day to talk and see how you are. Ellie had just joined and was full of fun and smiles. Thanks to all bar staff that always had drinks waiting for us.

Stayed here for a week in March. This is the best place I have ever stayed for a holiday. The staff are so lovely and friendly, and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was lovely and clean and we had a great view overlooking the sea. Being vegetarians, we didnt expect the food to be as varied and as lovely as it was. We had something different every day which we usually struggle to do going abroad. The sea was great for snorkling, never done it before but it was the best experience! Also a camel ride on the beach has to be done. Overall I could not fault this hotel or it's lovely staff and will definately be going back, cant wait!

Well what can I say..my 9th visit at this wonderful resort..and it is still as fantastic as the last time. It is a 3 and a half star hotel with 5 plus star service.
The bar staff..Ehab..Osama..Saad..Ahmed..and Hamada remember your drinks and I dont have to ask..great service.
The restaurant staff Saied..Moustafa..Samir the chef..are all brilliant..they made sure you had a table and the drinks were brought straight over. The food was really good..there is a new menu now..which is really good.
At the reception desk Mahmoud is always on hand if you need any help.
Ahmed the towel guy is amazing..teaching me a bit of Arabic..
All in all this is like my second home as everyone makes me feel so welcome.

Certainly a good choice to get away for a week. Service was good and the staff was extremely polite and helpful. The animation team done a good job at keeping all guests entertained. The coral reef is perfect for snorkelling and is just off the hotels private beach. The food was also okay however got a bit repetitive after a week of eating it every day. Overall a great holiday and would recommend it to any family or anyone one else
