the hotel when we arrived was accomodating 1200 people and it was v busy, dining room was ok you could always just about find a table, food superb-couldnt fault in any way. after 3 days the russian, german and scandinavian tour operators pulled out dut to unrest in egypt and left just about 100 british guests rattling around in a large complex, sometimes of the day it was like the Marie Celeste, the vast majority of staff have been laid off but i must say the staff team were superb, nothing was too much trouble with the exception of the reception staff who i found to be somewhere between snooty and haughty. Very good value for money, only one pool is heated so the others were very quiet, you could always find sunbeds and shade even when the hotel was full. Nothing to do really outside of the hotel and the hotels entertainment was dire but we were quite happy to stay in the quiet bar out of the way of silly games being played for the amusement of german guests
