From check in to check out - five star excellence!
Excellent double family room with a great view of the quiet pool ( block 10 ) superbly kept by the housekeeper with some great towel art!
Restaurants and bars really good with great service especially Hermina in the adult and lobby bar, Med restaurant was our favourite ( top class steak ) but Chinese, Indian and Village diner all well worth visiting!
Pools great and all First choice team were excellent - Holly, Charlotte and Anna Banana were the kids faves!
Katie from swim academy and the football guys were fantastic also - we will return!!!!!

Arrived at the hotel, easy quick check-in and food available, bags taken to the room. Booked with family 2 rooms but we were in completely different blocks (5 mins away from each other) booked late check out. This is until 6 (it's only 5 if booked on resort) they were outside at 6 to take our bags. We had a jacuzzi room if I am honest it was a waste, partly because we didn't use it. The jacuzzis are on an open balcony next to a public path so it's not very private, not quite as bad as having a bath in the middle of the high street but not idillic either. On the bright side, massive clean room, bright and airy. * take tea bags, tea/coffee making facilities supplied and replenished daily. Nescafé coffee but lemon tea. Bottled water also supplied daily.

Food/drink
As much food and drink as you want many hours of the day, very clean and some of it cooked while you wait. Puddings are amazing. Arrived late but the restaurant stayed open for soup/snacks until 12am.

Entertainment
Very good for small children, and a huge variety, very hot and uncomfortable sat the evenings, someone in a previous review described it as a clay oven, a very accurate description. Very uncomfortable- not sure what they could do to make it better.

Shopping/trips

Went out a few times, very typical Egypt. Some were helpful some were a bit pushy. Beware of the camel man outside the hotel- very pushy. The man on the beach with Bobby and Lilly is very nice. If you go visit the 'Yorkshire shop' at the bottom of the stairs on the beach, he is one of the loveliest people.

Transfers
I would probably book private taxis as on the way back they take you to the airport 3 hours early. No duty free shops at the airport either and £10 for 3 bottles of water.

Pool
The pools are nice and big, sadly a few tomes during our stay the pool had to be closed due to people using it as a toilet (a Facebook craze.

Trips
Market was a waste of money/time no different from the town. Banana boat was fantastic (I didn't go but family who did enjoyed it)

Would book this hotel again if we went back to Egypt.

Tips- take English money, you get a much better deal for your money. I lost money when changing it back with Thompsons/First Choice.
Take snorkels etc, you will use them
in the sea and can see some lovely fish. They were expensive to buy here and not great quality.

Great hotel. the people are very friendly. It offers great activities for the kids. The beach is right at the hotel and there is a bar there too ;). Good kids club. Offers lots of excursions. The cleaning staff make great things out of the towels for the kids and leave them on your bed. The range of food was great.
I would love to go back here someday

This is our second year running to this hotel. The service is excellent special thanks to Ali for serving us drinks by the pool all day. There is plenty of good to choose from so no one should ever go hungry. The A la carte restaurants are really good especially the Chinese.
The only thing that spoilt it is the usual scummy families who think it's funny and acceptable to poo in the pool for a laugh and post it on social media sites to see how many hits they get. It's such a shame as the hotel staff and management work so hard to make everyone happy. It's a great hotel for families so I hope that the idiots are barred from going there . It's in a great location and you can't beat the weather.

We had a fantastic holiday here in August. Many people said we were crazy to go at this time of year as it's so hot but to be honest it was fine and totally bearable. We had a swim up room which was perfect but was a bit far away from the main hub and was a but if a trek in the heat to the main pool and entertainment. We were in block 11. On arrival we thought that the hotel was very unorganised and we were left by the hotel in the dark if night by the wrong room. We were totally lost and would never of found our room by ourselves. Eventually after much confusion a kind member of staff helped us find our room. Our room was good but needed desperately redecorating. The tiles in the bathroom were chipped and the shower was hanging off the wall and was very rusty. The room was very clean though and although our maid was quite forgetful (every time he came he forgot towels or water) he did keep our room clean and was friendly. The laundry service was good value too. The restaurant choice of food was fantastic. How anyone can say it's repetitive amazes me. It was excellent. My only complaint though was the chaos of it all. It reminded me of Butlins and it was hectic with queues out the door; especially breakfast time. The al la cartes were excellent and the Mediterranean and the American diner were excellent. We ran out of time to do the others. The entertainment was a but flat compared to HV Turkey last year. This could do with a bit more thought as it was very repetitive after four nights. The adult bar us great but as soon as the quiz ends at 11 it goes dead as people have to pick their kids up from the kids clubs. It would be great if they allowed the children up just for the last hour; there is usually only music on and not anything that would be unsuitable for children. The pool was closed 6 times in one week whilst we were there. In fairness it was trouble causers that were doing it, I don't understand some people's mentality. There are some concerns with the state of the pool in general with cracked tiles and the pool ladders are all lose. One actually came away and was hanging off. It took two days for the staff to cone it off and then repair in on day three. It was dangerous. The pool bar was excellent and the staff worked hard. We tipped these guys plentiful. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens and everything is clean and tidy in and outside the hotel. It just needs a bit of an update and a few repairs made. We had a few health issues whilst staying there and the pharmacist outside the hotel was fantastic. He prescribed antibiotics to myself, my son and friends of ours with different ailments. He spoke good English and was very helpful. We went to Soho square one night and it was a welcome break from the First Choice entertainment. It was great for drinks and shopping. I preferred this to haggling outside the hotel. We were not bothered by anyone in Soho Square. All in all it was a great holiday. We would return to Egypt but I'm not sure if I would return to this Holiday village, I know some people do. We would probably stay in a different hotel and that's not because we had a poor holiday, that's because I think nothing with regards to the entertainment would of changed and it would seem a bit repetitive.

Arrived home early hours of this morning wishing we had booked two weeks instead of one. Soo much to do wether it's trying out one of the many restaurants or taking part in activities. All staff are extremely helpful and work very many hours. It was our little girls 1st Birthday and the pool staff decorated our sun beds for her. At dinner that evening they sang and gave her a cake. Great room always kept immaculate. Very rarely return to the same ace but would consider returning!

This was our first holiday as a family in 6 years. The hotel was clean, food great and people really friendly. It was a superb holiday and we wished we had booked longer. Would definitely return - excellent!
