Just returned from this hotel yesterday, having had a great holiday with my husband and 15 year old son. The hotel is very nice, extremely clean, and ALL staff from cleaners to managers are all very friendly, attentive, and go out of their way to help. Yes the hotel in parts, is beginning to look a little tired, but the standards of service, staff, and food far out weigh this. All of the hotel including the grounds are kept immaculately clean, even individual leaves were picked up from pathways. The room we were in (Block 14), was lovely. Not dark or outdated as stated by previous reviewers. Cleaned every day, and fridge replenished with cola, Fanta, and bottles of water. Our 15 year old son soon made friends and with the Teens rep Kimmi, she kept them all entertained and did a FANTASTIC job, as did ALL the entertainment team who do a great job. My The daytime pool games were great fun to watch and participate in, with no pressure from staff, around activity pool. Evening entertainment as in other Egyptian hotels was OK. However the pool party and beach party were great nights, and great fun had by all. The Michael Jackson show was good too. Food, all very good, plentiful and all tastes catered for. Main buffet restaurant was nice, and effort was made each evening with real tablecloths and candles on the tables, nice additional touches. Staff again very friendly, and helpful, straight over when your glass was empty, or clearing plates, and always so pleasant, despite, living away from their families, and working in temperatures of 49 degrees. The Mai Thai (through the day) worth a visit for Fajhitas as previously mentioned. Also a visit to All Al A Carte restaurants - I can't recomended enough. We celebrated our wedding anniversary whilst their and booked into the Egyptian restaurant, they made such a fuss, a lovely night and great fun. Thank you Mohammad !!! Various bars situated within the hotel, but we liked the Eagles bar, where everyone is SO well looked after by 'Bob' and 'Omar Shariff'. Great service and crisps or peanuts served with drinks. Also preferred the cocktails in here. Beach was very nice too with plenty of sun beds, and jetty leading out into sea. Can't understand the comment of previous review who stated 'beach awful'!! This is Egypt !!!!! Not Caribbean. We booked a boat trip through Magic Divers based at hotel. They were great, and have both English and Egyptian staff. Well worth the money, lovely lunch, and great staff, we had a lovely day, we're well looked after and paid half the price that Thomson charge. Can't recommend enough. Also did quad biking in desert which was great fun, we booked that through Falcon Tours, out the hotel entrance turn right, and a approx ten minute walk. They were also very helpful, and have English and Egyptian staff. We only paid £15. Each and had approx 2 hours trip with a stop for drinks, and photo opportunity. Well worth the money. Overall a great holiday and would recommend to friends and family.
