My boyfriend and I travelled to Egypt for a relaxing all inclusive week away after a busy year. What we expected was a nice week where we could chill out and enjoy the sun, which we got, but there is so much more to this hotel. We were greeted after our delayed flight with drinks and food still provided for us at such a late hour and a really nice welcome from all the staff. Throughout the week we got to know the amazing animation team who really made our trip special. Natalie and Sylvia in particular made the trip as homely and comfortable as it was, they along with others in the animation team spoke to us regularly, acknowledged and remembered us, came to wave us off when we left, which was a lovely touch. The entertainment was fun, the food was excellent, the a la carte restaurants offer a great variety for everyone and they're very easy to book on to - and they're unlimited!!!
We could not have asked for a better vacation, and felt vey welcome as a gay couple in a Muslim country! I would recommend this holiday to anyone and everyone, there is no prejudice to anyone at this resort. We also found there were no extras added on to our bill at the end, everything was actually free, just as it should be in an all inclusive but sometimes isn't!
Our room was located so close to the pools, bars, beach and reception without it ever being too noisy or loud! The views of the clear blue Red Sea were exceptional and the fish you can swim with on your own private beach mean there is no need to pay the extra for a snorkelling trip, although we would highly recommend the scuba diving company found within the hotel!!
The only slight niggle is the wifi is fairly slow, but there is enough to do at the resort to distract you from your twitter, email or Facebook! Don't judge what you hear about Egypt as this is not true at this resort. Thank you for everything, thank you for a great holiday, it was so much more than we could have ever asked for.
Miss you all already!
Bradley and Thomas :)
