We went for the first time over xmas & new year. weather was excellent & the hotel up to its usual high standard.We still consider this is the best beach we have seen in egypt as the beds are not too close & the snorkeling is good for people that cannot swim too well.
The entertainment is only average but we noticed that there were more professional acts than in the past( which are fare better than the italian entertainment team)
We find the food fine & it was especially good over xmas & new year. The hotel met our request for a room on the 1st floor due to my wifes recent op.The room was a little tired ,But they are slowly refurbishing. main grevance was the small wardrobe.
WE did notice that far more people suffered from stomach problems than on past visits despite them constantly checking the food temp .I would start swabbing sunbeds & furniture to trace the source of the infection.
Would we return for a 5th time ? we would have to be convinced that the management had traced & addressed the stomach problem issue.
