22nd May 2012 and we arrive to see if this stay will be as good as the last time. Let me tell you IT WAS. As we waited for the bags to be taken to our room after checking in, we retired to the bar where we were met by one of last years bar staff. He greeted us, gave us a hug and a kiss and then brought our drinks over. We hadn't ordered them, he just remembered us from last year....what a great start. From that point on the stay was once again superb. The entire team are so friendly and prompt. This resort hotel in 5* in our eyes.
Something else I noticed, the General Manager "Chris" is always visible around the resort and you can talk to him. He is very approachable and clearly wants his guests to be happy. As someone who was in catering for over 20 years I thought this was very good.
If you've never been people....GO.
We return there again on 27th Nov 2012 for another stay and whilst the weather will not be as hot it will be just as relaxing. This time I will be returning as a member of the Ambassador Club.
Having read some other reviews I would say this....just go there and make your own mind up. You can't please everyone all the time but I tell you what....they do try and very hard.
Specials mentions to El Shehat, Alaa and Mohammed on the beach, Ossama, Mohammed and Ahmed in the bar, Ambassador Ahmed in the Reef Bar and of course the lovely Nancy in the restaurant.
We look forward to seeing you all again in November for my birthday and Chris..keep up the good work.
Mark H and Joanne N (formerly room 1507).
