General overview: This villa was a dream come true. Its the kind of place you look at and think it cant possibly be that good in real life, but it is. It is a good price too. We paid £100 per person per week. The owner Stephen was a gem, we partied together but he also left us too it and we had a lot of privacy. He also made me soup and gave me anti sickness medication when I came down with an illness. The villa is made up of several parts that house the owner, and other paying guests. it was such a relaxing time I would love to go again.
Activities: A very helpful and lovely lady Summer was also there to help us and arranged any excursion we wanted. She made our holiday what it was. So definitely make the most of her! I recommend snorkelling and the boat trip. It is expensive at £50. but SSOOO worth it. Camel ride with the Egyptian Bedouins is also brilliant. the 3 of us girls stayed in the desert with them by ourselves and felt very safe and respected.
Cost: The only thing I would take care of yourself is the airport transfers. If you book with the villa it will cost around £140 one way for 8 people! but £30 with a private transfer. I spent £220 all week and that included food and an activity everyday. and so much alcohol. We had a great time.
Area: As for the area, it looks a bit dodgy if you aren't used to it. But ask the villa taxi man (yeah you can get your own taxi man) to take you to the "strip" and there are loads of relaxing bars and shops. Really beautiful. and although touristy, not your typical brits abroad set up.
Good temperature in April too, between 28 and 38 degrees C. but cool enough to not feel like you're dying.
