Overall a Great hotel with some fantastic facilities but it is shame about some of the staff.
The hotel offers many swimming pools but has a “no reserve sun bed policy”, however the guests do not stick to this and every morning when you come out to the pool all the best location beds are taken, one day we went to Luxor and had to be at reception by 5am, on the walk to reception a good amount of beds had towels on! Shame the hotel does nothing to stop this.
With regards to other comments about the staff who offer trips and Spa experiences around the pool: They are not as bad as other guests make out, I think we were approached by 5 or 6 people a day whilst laying around the pool for 7/8 hours and when you say no they say bye. We spoke to 1 person about Spa and he was really friendly and offered us a great deal.
The staff were mixed, we met a lot of friendly staff in the buffet restaurant, the cleaners were really good but we did not like the reception staff and the bar staff who were rude. They would ignore you for some length of time and would favour guests who have previously tipped. Also the bar staff serve all girls first regardless if you have been stood there for 5 minute and a girl has just walked to the bar.
The main restaurants: Asian, Middle Eastern, Italian and Sea Food were all very good. The Middle Eastern food was very nice and service was great too. The Italian was nice but overrated you could get the same Pizza and pasta in the buffet restaurants and beach bar so if you can only visit 3 I would go to the other 3.
