With just 100 rooms this hotel was exactly what I was looking for when I needed 2 weeks of sunbathing and nothing else! There were always sunbeds available by the pool and the staff are very friendly and attentive - nothing is too much effort. Situated a (£5 rtn) cab ride away from bustling Naama Bay, the hotel is perfectly situated away from the crowds if all you want to do is sunbathe for 2 weeks (top of and only thing on my holiday 'to do' list).
Having a fridge in the room was invaluable, especially with a supermarket & pharmacy just across the road (selling water at 20% of the price of the pool bar) so you can stock up on water and snacks. That said, the all-you-can-eat dinner (for just £8) looked great although I never actually had it and the food served at the pool bar was of a reasonable standard (although most dishes were served with chips). The shopping/restaurant area of Il Mercato (a £4 rtn cab ride away or a 15min walk if you can bear the heat & tooting cabs) has a few restaurants that other holiday-makers recommended and the best seafood restaurant in Sharm (Fares).
Despite a few less-than-perfect aspects (a couple of lamps and a ceiling light not working, limited choice of food on-site, cleaning not totally thorough, lack of choice at breakfast if you don't fancy the traditional Egyptian choices of salad, mash, cream cheese) I didn't want to come home and would go back in a heartbeat. For guaranteed sun and relaxation I would definitely recommend this hotel.
