Stayed here with my husband in Nov/Dec 2011 for 2 weeks. i had read the previous reviews saying this was not really a 5* hotel and I have to agree although, I don't think the price is 5* and therefore it is very good value for money. Whilst we were there, on the second week they changed all the pads on the sun beds for brand new ones and this really made a difference as the old ones were extremely shabby. Also the restaurant booking system was not too bad, we were able to get into most restaurants when we wanted to as you couldn't book via the computer system until 10am so there was no early morning queueing as I thought there would be. Our room was not as big as I thought or a luxurious as I would have liked and I have stayed in better 3* rooms but it was clean and tidy.The buffett restaurant was a bit like a school dinner hall but the others were very nice and the service very good. I couldn'd find any bubbly like other 5* hotels and any wine that was not on the all inclusive was very expensive to buy. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially waiting and bar staff and couldn't do enough for you and didn't seem to be hankering after a tip but we did tip at the end of our holiday to individual staff who had served us well. we went on a couple of trips, by plane to Luxor, well worth the early morning start, we did the Senai by night to see the Bedwins in their supposedly natural surroundings in the desert and ate with them and danced around the camp fire and observed the stars and milky way through a telescope, which was very good but very cold. What spoilt the illusion was when the Bedwin kids pulled out mobile phones, up to date ones!! Then they brought out a load of handmade gifts for you to buy which you felt obliged to. In fact everywhere you went outside of the hotel, it was in your face constant trying to flog you stuff, it got very nauseating and we even witnessed kids trying to get onto our coach to flog stuff, they never left you alone and this was a big, big moan of the other tourists we were with.
After all said and done it was a good holiday, would I go back again? probably but in a few years time as there are plenty of other places we would like to visit.
