We stayed at this hotel both with and without kids. There are three pools at the hotel (one is an "adult only" pool which is great for those who want a break from the kids). The upper pool is 105 cm deep, and was great for our 4 1/2 year old who is learning to swim. It has a "lazy river" which is a lot of fun for kids. The pool is a bit "worn" and could stand to be renovated. The middle pool is where the water slide exits and it is 145 cm deep. The water slide is fantastic (very tastefully hidden in the landscaping), and is fun for kids and adults.
The landscaping is well maintained.
The beach is lovely and diving from the hotel is fantastic. You can rent wet suits and all necessary gear for diving on site.
The souk (outdoor eating area) is open for dinner and nightly entertainment (including belly dancers) is provided. Unless you are on half board, lunch and dinner can be VERY pricey! A cheese pizza will run you 50 Egyptian pounds/$9 USD, and other entrees will run as much as 180 Egyptian pounds/$32 USD. Beverages are also expensive, so we made a trip into town (on the free shuttle provided by the hotel), and stocked up on water and soft drinks to put in our minibar fridge).
Breakfast offers a lot of choices (omelettes, waffles/pancakes, fresh fruit, pastries/bread, veggies, cereal, fresh juices, etc.) and is of excellent quality.
Room service ended up being one of the most affordable eating options.
The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The Oasis Kids Club is wonderful. Childcare is FREE! They are open from 9am to 6pm daily and will also do babysitting in the evening for a fee. They have a schedule of activities for kids, and also have a shallow pool on site.
Spa services are very expensive (massages are about $100), and the beauty salon is very mediocre, and also pricey (they charged me 300 EGP/$55 for a 30 minute pedicure.
The hotel is close to the airport (7 minutes).
Guests during our stay were from the UK, Russia and Italy.
