My husband has already written a review on here but I wanted to add one too especially to praise the staff of this hotel particularly Ahmed in the restaurant and Mohammed in the pool bar. Both of these guys gave great personal service and were always incredibly polite and cheerful.
We stayed in room 1242 with a sea view. We had fresh towels beautifully designed on our bed every day and on Valentines Day pink petals. The only thing wrong was the lock on the back door was not very good. I made sure it was locked but this was difficult to do and the cleaner never locked it properly (it had a technique and could do with a fresh new lock fitted). Occasionally the water supply pressure wasn't very good but maybe that was at busy periods.
The food was good. Neither myself or husband were ill, a big plus in Egypt!! People have to remember this is Egypt not England! There was plenty to choose from and always something that could be cooked up fresh. Bread is lovely and you can get a decent cup of tea too!
Plentiful supply of alcohol with excellent personal service from Mohammed who ensured we were topped up all day and evening, we didn't even have to leave our sun loungers!
Would be nice if wifi were free or a bit cheaper but you can go to Soho square and get free wifi if your desperate!
Take £2 coins and £5 notes to tip the waiters, bar men and cleaners they will be very grateful and this ensures you a great personal service.
The guys in the hotel shops are lovely too. Of course they want you to buy something but the prices are very reasonable certainly not rip off and if you need advice on what or where to buy something they are very helpful. "Antonio" (his shop sells beach stuff and clothes) is lovely and loves to talk about England and share a cup of tea. "Marco" too has some lovely papyrus paintings, well worth the money if you think of what you could buy similar at home (I've never seen anything in the UK like his stuff).
On the whole this hotel is great value. It's a bit tired in places but it's clean and the staff are very helpful. If there is something you don't like just let them know and they will do their utmost to sort it for you.
