We have recently returned from a weeks holiday at this resort and can honestly say that I would not recommend it to anyone.
You are constantly pestered around the pool side to book excursions, spa's and if you happen to fall asleep on your sun lounger you will be woken by getting blown in your ear or tickled at your feet...... nothing deters them from asking you to book! At first I thought the constant pestering was because we were a group of females but I seen it done to couples and families too.
You cannot get a bottle of water on your all inclusive..... you get bottled water poured into a plastic glass....wine is only served during lunch and at your evening meal.... all alcoholic drinks are locally sourced and just don't taste nice at all.... buffet restaurant food is limited to choice and lunchtime snacks consist of pizza, frankfurters and chips every day so we stuck to the restaurants you pay for .
The spa is lovely even if a little tired with frayed towels etc. although staff do talk in Egyptian and burst into spontaneous laughter during your treatments and massages which does make you feel a little uncomfortable.
The worst for our group of ladies was that after only one day in this resort we all experienced painful stomach cramps and could barely get off the toilet. Immodium does not work with this illness!! After 4 days we had to go to the doctor as there was no way we could endure a 6 hour flight home with these symptoms. We were all put on an intravenous drip.......it was extreemly frightening as the cleanliness and sanitation is not what we are used to!! Seemingly an oral antibiotic etc would have taken between 5-7 days to have an effect and as we were flying home in a few days we couldn't risk it and had no choice but to accept the drip. We had to have 3 sessions on the drip, 8 hours apart each time. We were told to keep the cannula in our arm dry until the sessions were finished. It was then that we noticed the amount of people with bandages on their arms or wrists............ There were loads of people around the pool area and hotel with cannulas in and the Thomas Cook rep refused to acknowledge there was a problem and put our illness's down to "climate change" Everyone we spoke with had been ill with the cramps etc.
This has to be the worst holiday my friends and i have ever been on. 7 days all inclusive in the sun turned into a detox holiday from hell. I most definitely will not be returning and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
