We stayed fortunately only one day before and one day after our Red See cruise in this hotel and were very disappointed. What a contrast to the luxury cruise we made!
The first impression when you come in the reception is not bad. The staff is very friendly and the little beach is ok. The room was clean but very poor. Damaged curtains and a very noisy ( empty!) mini bar. In the bathroom we found only a little piece of soap. We asked the reception for shower lotion en shampoo and a bottle of water but that was not available. We had to get it from the supermarket! Because we had a rather expensive package deal with our cruise we didn’t know what the price for this hotel was. We heard people paid only € 400 including flight from Germany and all inclusive for 14 days! In that case one cannot complain much. At breakfast we got frozen bread and there was hardly any difference between coffee and thee. The buffet dinner was reasonable. The drinks however were very very bad. One could get only a couple of hard liquors. Probably home made? Cocktails or liqueur were unknown. The red wine had a very peculiar taste and the white wine we us in the salad at home. Even Cola light was not available. Only some strange tasting so called cola from a machine. All the drinks including beer were served in tiny glasses. We were sorry for the people who had to stay here for a longer time.
