From the concerige serice, the golf buggy ride to our room (which was a short distance from reception), to the attentive hotel staff this is the place to be treated like a true guest. The room we had was the largest we have ever had in any hotel anywhere with plenty of room for two doubles, chairs, dresser, uplighters, two wardrobes and his and her sinks in the bathroom with a huge bath.
The location was perfect for us, away from the hustle of Naama Bay but easily accessible by shuttle bus, or for a ride on the wild side take the local bus for a couple of Egyptian pounds.
We went all inclusive and although we had passes to the Italian restuarant anda discount in the Thai, we found the food in the main restaurant and BBQ poolside bar really good with a good choice and variety. I can have a terrible stomach problems and even took an I-straw which is basically a filter, but for me the standard of hygiene and cleanliness meant no problems for me - and I am the personwho gets sick in Canary Islands if there is ice in my drinks.
The huge pool is well designed for accomplished and less accomplished swimmers with designated areas for water polo, and a separate kiddies pool.
We loved our room in the bungalo style building an the outside area with its own garden area. We used the gym, the spa and salon and found the standard of service in all areas to be comparable to any of the above in the UK.
Even though there were difficult guests (we've decided that some guests from certain parts of the world just don't give a great impressionof their fellow countrymen), the staff continued to be pleasant and try their best to be accommodating. There is an excellent shuttle service to sister hotel for the beach.
The negatives: location - don't come here if you are going to be bothered by airplanes, which we rarely heard once in our room and hardly noticed after a hile anyway. The shuttle bus times to Naama Bay are ridiculous and if you have paid for your meals, (FB or AI) you will miss out based on the shuttle bus times. However, there is a hotel taxi (£50 Egyptian) or take the local transport for a couple of egyptian pounds.
Entertainment: The same virtually every night, with the same singer (who can sing) or belly dancer or animation team who were not very animated at all. If we had children I am not sure this hotel would be our first choice, although the children we saw seemed to like it there (this is when the animation team seemed more animated).
Although AI expect to pay extras, ie use of rackets for tennis and possibly room service which we did not try as the layout and design of the resort really made things quite accessible from where we were.
All in all quite a find.
