We were a party of 8 mixed ages ranging 22-70 travelled on 7th February for a week... On arrival check in was quite quick, the hotel staff took care of your cases and put labels on them and brought them to your room which was quite helpful as we had 2 nans with us with walking aids, now please bare in mind that this complex is pretty big so there's a lot of walking to get around to different things, the lobby is beautiful and always kept spotlessly clean. We were really happy with our room and had a pool facing balcony. The rooms were equipped with a flat screen tele with great choice of English tv channels and movie channels, a fridge, big beds side tables, chair and table and a dressing table and lamp then on the balcony 2 chairs and a table and a clothes rack which was very handy.
Hotel also gives you a free big bottle of water too, breakfast was good, usual pastries, fruits, cereals, toast (fresh baguettes and loaves etc) lunch and dinner were good also, pizzas, chips, salads, meats, jacket potatoes, veg, fish, panini's and soup etc. waiters were lovely and nothing was too much trouble, always pleasant and welcoming, please bare in mind they work super hard, sometimes you would see them at 7am in the morning and still there working til 11pm, they never put a hand out for a tip etc and if you do tip they are so grateful, so do the nice thing and tip when you receive good service.
Pools were great, although the bigger out the 2 was still undergoing refurbishment while we were there, but I'm sure it's all complete now and looking fabulous, again pool bar staff were great and the animation team were fantastic, always full of energy and smiley faces, and again they too work really hard from morning til night, always making sure that everything was ok and if ye needed any advice etc they were more than happy to help... I was eaten alive and was advised to buy OFF spray, it's in an orange spray can,and works a treat, bought it from the hotels shop..does stink at first though so spray it on the balcony not in your room as it is quite strong, if any of the family suffer from asthma don't spray it too close to them.
Now to the water park.... Our favourite part if the hotel! The First day we were at the hotel we spent it at the pools... Until we went to the water park, absolutely loved it! Plenty of loungers and umbrellas etc and the snack bars were great, I've cream was lovely, and popcorn by the pool bar too. There was also a jetty at the beach, the sea doesn't start getting deep until the very end of the jetty. The beach bar/restaurant was also great and to be honest I was expecting toilets near the beach to be grim, but they were fantastic, probably better than the bathroom in the room tbh, so that was an ice surprise, smelled clean and fresh. The whole hotel and the grounds were spotless.
Inside the hotel there are some shops, selling painting, perfume oils, swimming stuff, shampoos sun screen things, and lots if Egyptian ornaments, fridge magnets etc, and in the same part there was the entertainment bar where the animation team done like Mr Coral Sea, Mrs Coral Sea etc, was great fun.
Do not be warned off going to the shops outside the hotel grounds, we would regularly walk up to the shops to have a nose and there was like a superstore that's open 24 hours, theres a Burger King, KFC, Starbucks, Hard Rock Cafe, and plenty of shops selling hand bags and perfume oils, ornaments etc. yes the shop owners do come out and say to come and look in there shops but that's just normal for Egypt.
Transfer from airport to hotel, no longer than 20minutes.we also done quad biking in the desert and it was phenomenal!
Think I've covered everything, if you do or don't have children it really doesn't matter with this hotel, you will absolutely love if and we can not wait to go back, thanks to the hotel staff and luigi and all of the animation team for making it such a great holiday :)
