We went for two weeks and since we were mainly diving it was only used as a place to sleep. So, for us, it served its purpose as it was clean, comfortable bed and air-conditioning. So I have no complaints.
Here is some information which may be of use:
When you turn up, do not be put off by the front of the hotel. It is, as another writer noted, a lot better on the other side.
There was a swimming pool and entertainment on through the day on the little private beach and something on the night. It was a bit loud but it was always finished by midnight and you got used to it.
Food and drinks could be purchased from either the bar or the hotel restaurant (we did neither).
There was a Red Sea tour operator on the private jetty. He did snorkelling and visits to the island opposite the beach.
There was a fridge and a TV in the room. The TV had BBC world news and a few of the Arabian channels had the odd English language speaking program on.
As stated by previous posters- only 12 safe deposit boxes but hardly any of them were being used.
Shop selling various snacks and drinks on site plus a few other shops which sold perfume and leather bags. Please note that you could not bring drinks and food stuffs from outside the hotel (the shop was not that more expensive).
There was always security on the door no matter what time you ventured in.
Opposite was several fast food places (burger bar, pizza hut, Costa and an ice-cream parlour)
You were about 15 minutes walk from the new marina, which was full of restaurants, a nightclub and a few bars to catch the football and pick up a cold beer.
