Having spent a superb week on the Nile doing all the temples ect ,we booked this hotel to chill out in for the second week of our holiday. We were able to do just that as this hotel is probably best suited to the slightly older age group, ( although there were some children and younger people there ), the average age would have been 50+.
A slightly older hotel with plenty of character and wonderful well established gardens, with it's own beach front and plenty of sun beds + beach bar, good sized pool with bar.
Rooms were spacious, clean and with v/good service. Food in the several restaurants was plentiful with an excellent choice for all meals ( especially the sweets ! ) being all incusive we took full advantage of this.
Staff were friendly and helpful at all times, there is a theatre on site with nightly entertainment, sailboarding, canoeing are free with instuction if needed and snorkeling in the sea close to shore is fantastic with small areas of coral easily accessible with an awsome array of coulorful fish.
A trip to Hurghada ( 40kls ) is reccommended and was the only time we left the complex.
All in all a thouroughly enjoyable stay.
