“about the hotel”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

the hotel is clean and really nice to stay in although not many english here thats not that bad though
my wife needed medical help from the hotel doctor which was very fast and professional attendence , the treatment was so efficent and excellent ,
even the location of the clinic was so nearby the reception
so if you are the one of the hundred that get sick,do not worry . the doctor will look after you well

My first visit to sharm with my family and friends in july of this year. The hotel was very good and the location was close nearby shops and over looked by the tiran island. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and waking up to the view of the read sea was glorious. The main restaurant catered for all nationalities with lovely displays of bread, cakes and lots of different pastas. The main pool was lovely with lots of activities going on for children and adults, the animation team trying to get you involved in there daily activities. The evening shows were good sometimes in the bar area and then in the laylina tent outside the egyption night was brilliant! The hotel was very quiet and very relaxing would definitely visit again. The managment ans staff were extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble, special mention to cheif animation mohamed who works so well :) look forward to seeing you all soon

This was by far my worst vacation ever .. this hotel is really terrible starting from the rooms we had to change our room twice in order to find one with a proper AC working not to mention their weird lizards hanging around in your room with even the housekeepers didnt wven bother to clean after a dead lozard in my room .....!!.
My friend's room got stolen .. thier money disappear after they returned from dinner and when we told the manager he said I am not responsible as the money were not in the safe ... so some work just breaked into their room and he is not responsible I mean imagine if a guest was in the room !!
The food is awful and most of the time it wasn't well done .
The bottom never consider going to this resort
