This is the second time to Egypt, first time to stella Makadi . All i can say is what a lovely hotel this was. We stayed in block 3000 which was right next to the pool, the beach bar, and the beach. The gardens are well maintained and looked lovely.
On the first day however you get a lot of people selling trips, massages, camel rides ,quad bikes trips, beauty products. We purchased quite a few of these and got to know all of staff and what friendly people egyptians are they could not help us enough.
If you do not want to be pestered by these sellers there is pool to the right of the hotel which they cannot enter.
On the beach front is the long jetty to the coral reef which you will see lots of beautiful fish.
Lunch is served from 12.30 at the beach bar, pizzas, burgers, kebabs, sandwichs and salad. If you want a proper meal you would have to go to the main restaurant, which gives you a whole range of food. When we stayed in Egypt the first time this was the only thing that let it down but not at this hotel we was very impressed.
They cleaned our room everyday with clean bedding and clean towels.
Every morning you got clean beech towels which you collected on the beach area or pool area.
The only thing i can say that let it down was the tide went out and stayed out for a good 6 hours, this does depend on what time of year you go out there of course. So for a swim we used the beautiful pool and swam to the pool bar and had a few cocktails to make up for it.
If you stay at this hotel you will not be dissappointed.
I travelled with my husband and daughter who is 14 and two very good friends.
