We arrived 31st of July and stayed in 14th of August. We had a group of 11, 2 adults and 9 kids. The trip was sort of a tennis practice session for us, and the hotel completely fit our requirements. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful; whenever we had any request, it was done in a question of few minutes.
The restaurant managers were very kind and were always able to find a table for our crowd. We enjoyed endless choices of delicious food and desserts.
The kids loved animation team, especially Pablo and Marley. All the show programs we went to were spectacular and fun.
The sea was very clean and warm. Also, if anyone likes observing marine wildlife I would recommend going to the right side of the beach when the water is low. There are many crabs, clams and beautiful fishes in that area.
As one of few adults in the group, I was able to enjoy disco. 2 times a week (Mondays and Thursdays) a bus takes people to city clubs and I would definitely recommend going there.
The hotel shops have wide selection and the prices are pretty good because you can haggle. I would recommend visiting spice shop where Joseph (a very nice redhaired man) will treat you with tea and smoke hookah with you. He has lots of tea, oils, spices and shisha tobacco. The owner of papyrus shop (Samer) is also very helpful and he will help you to find a perfect papyrus for your home and friends.
Mohamed Al Tayar is your man if you need anything. He is making rounds around the hotel making sure everything is perfect and everyone is happy. He helped us to get into gym (because normally no kids are allowed in there) and to extend our rooms for few more hours with a discount.
The tennis courts are pretty good. They seem to have some kind of rubbery surface so the bounce is soft but even.
We enjoyed our stay in hotel and would like to visit again
