We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Sofitel and had a lovely relaxing break. This destination is best for people looking to get away from it all and just put their feet up around the pool and enjoy doing very little. It is however a good location for visiting interesting sites like Petra in Jordan and Israel. There is also an 18 hole golf course on the resort and snorkelling along the reef to break up the day.
We normally like to have a drink in the day and a bit of a laugh but the heat does not mix well with alcohol and I suffered with an upset stomach for a few days as a result. Its very important to keep hydrated at all times. The food is great and they do well catering for everyone. The hotel has a mix of nationalities which varies throughout the year, according to staff. While we were there it was mainly Brits and chezch so be prepared for the differences in cultures i.e. manners, queuing etc.
The best asset of this hotel is the staff. They work hard to ensure you enjoy your stay and they do a very good job. It is polite to reward good service and we did do a bit of tipping but felt the money had been well earned. A special mention must be made for Ossama from the recreation team who was always willing to help teach Arabic and assist in any other way he could.
This was our first trip to Egypt and the people are very friendly and helpful. We will be coming back.
