We went to this lovely resort at the end of October. What a fantastic experience. We came to the hotel, got checked in, and the hotel arranged for a small golf cart to pick up us and the luggage to take us to our room (we had paid extra for a room in the royal wing). When we entered our room, we were amazed - what a size….. Must have had about 30 sqm room, 4 sqm hallway and about 12 sqm bathroom with a huge tub in it. Had two ¾ beds in the room (for 2 people) - so there was plenty of room on all the 280 centimeters. There was coffee facilities and TV with lots of channels. Room was located close to the royal wing pool - only 50 meters down to the pool. The royal wing pool was also big and very nice, with depths ranging from 110 cm to 150 cm - and a childrens pool only 45cm deep (with a water playground). Bar and restaurant in the pool area as well, serving cold water, soda, beer, and descent food.
Only downside of the royal wing is the distance to the beach - takes between 5 and 10 min. to walk down there - but it is possible to catch the little hotel train, driving from the reception, down close to the “beach” area. Just remember there is a lot of steps down to the beach jetties, and you have to get there early to get sunbeds. But snorkelling on the hotel reef was absolutely amazing - saw lots of colourful fish - could have spent hours and hours down there.
The hotel itself offers a variety of restaurants of different cuisines - there is a buffet restaurant, a bistro, a Chinese and a Lebanese (in the Royal Club across the road - restaurant is overlooking the golf course). During the day, there is 2 pool restaurants at the main pool and 1 in the royal wing. Prices of food at the hotel are more expensive than in Naama Bay - but food is descent here. One thing I lacked from the previous reviews, I read before travelling, is the price level for food at the hotel. Prices range from about 50 LE and up: pizzas 55-70 LE, large burger with fries 70 LE, club sandwich and fries 65 LE, pasta 70-80 Le, lobster or steak from the grill 135-300 depending on what you should fancy.
In Naama Bay, at a restaurant called Dananeer you can get a steak dinner for about 60 LE for a beef tenderloin with fries (about 80 LE for Surf and Turf). Pizza Hut offers Large pizza’s with stuffed crust for 55 LE per pizza. There is also a KFC, TGI Fridays, Hard Rock Café, Egyptian, Italian, Lebanese and Chinese cuisines - so plenty to choose from. Taxi down town cost us 40 LE - but they will try to charge 50-70 LE. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus on certain times.
Breakfast at the hotel was free, of course - and very nice. Plenty of selection between freshly made omelettes, chicken and beef sausages, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, meatloaf, 8 different yoghurts, plenty of fresh fruit (melons and fruit salads), all carved out and peeled (so no worries about eating the fruit), serials, bread and more. Sometimes it does however take some time to get some coffee, but waiters are fast to clear the tables.
Hotel also had free internet access - that is on the stationary pc’s they have in the reception - however, these are almost always taken.
Staff at the hotel were generally very welcoming and polite, particularly our room cleaning guy was a nice young man. The Egyptian people are very warm and accommodating people, but respects a no thank you. The occasional one may noy get the hint - so you should just ignore them.
