Arrived back last week from 2 weeks at the Sunrise. On first arrival was amazed at the size of the place but we soon found our bearings the next day. On arrival we were missing a bed in our room for our daughter but we were soon given a new , larger room so no problems there. Even a light bulb was replaced immediately at our request ( we weren't being picky but couldnt see in our wardrobe)
We ate in the A la Cartes 12 nights out of 14 and can't believe this option is available. There was a varied menu in each restaurant (not set) and they still would go out of their way to let you have what you want. The buffet was fine but can't imagine why you would want to eat there with the other options available to you. We only ate breakfast in the Mexican and found no need to eat anywhere else in the morning as everything you could possibly want was there. At varying stages we did have tummy problems but we could find no common denominator between us all so do believe it is the heat etc. We bought some antinol from the onsite clinic for 8 dollars and the problem was soon resolved.
We did 3 trips with Thomas Cook all which we thoroughly enjoyed and found good value for money. These were quad biking, Mahmaya, and sand buggys at sunset. We also did the parasailing from the beach and the sofa ride which were good. Mohammad the TC rep was very knowlegable and helpful and was there when we visited him at the times he stated he would be.
Haysan at the family pool was lovely and a breath of fresh air and wouldnt even let you take your own towels back to the beds. Pool towels were always available . We stayed at the family pool area as this was close to our room and the slides and found there was always enough sunbeds and never had any trouble finding them . There was also plenty of fixed shades which were a godsend.
Little Muhammoud at the family pool was also very friendly and obliging and made me smile every day.
Had abosolutely no problems with bites after using the usual preventatives
Our anniversary was whilst we was there which we chose to spend in the Italian. They made sure this was a memorable occasion and we really did have a wonderful night with good food, singing , dancing and a cake.
AI drinks were good and readily available . Smirnoff etc were available in the lobby bar . The cocktails were also very good in there too.
Yes , some things were'nt perfect, yes sometimes things werent 100 % clean but I believe this is more down to people leaving things in this state to begin with and acting with slobbish behaviour. Also I have never been on holiday anywhere where there isn't slight niggles . Also Egypt is a third world country so this also needs to be taken into consideration .
We also had a free late check out and my husband took full advantage of his free hair cut.
We always go away with an open mind and make our own opinions and this years holiday certainly didnt disappoint and was very good value for the money that we paid.
All in all we had a lovely family holiday with no complaints!
