Even though I heard several complaints from other people in the resort I can state that I was more than happy with the hotel. The only negative would be the personell with their speed and friendlyness. Yes, it was Ramadan, but especially the personell at the bar were bad.
We had a sea view room right at the beach which was perfect.
The diving base next to the hotel provided everything I needed and I was able to do my 11 dives within 5 days.
Food was sufficient and good. Also it changed regularly.
The animation shows in the evening are not worth visiting.
The pool area is nice and the beach is perfect to relax. The beach is cleaned everyday and due to the set-up you always have privacy.

Room tip: Take a room away from the animation teams base as it is getting very loud in the evening.

Very nice and friendly hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, good furnished.
Hotel staff is friendly, helpfull, ....
Cleanless, enough umbrellas and sun loungers
Hotel was almost full but you don´t feel it....
You have no possibilities for shopping, historical center, ....BUT if you know it, no problem. The resort is space. Close to the Wadi Gamal National Park.

Delicious cuisine, 1 main restaurant, 2 a la carte restaurants - pizzeria and fish restaurant. International cuisine, every day - egyptian corner. The food is really excellent, wide choice - maybe too wide :-) (many bars)

The local reef wonderful for snorkellers :-) It´s like a dream ....

I heard mostly italian, german and french.

Would go back and would recommend it to anyone...:-)

Hello again.

Me and my fiance spent a week here after a fabulous cruise on the Nile.

The hotel is not something extraordinary although it was a totally okay place to unwind and relax while working on your tan. The beach is not the white soft sandy beach you would want to find, but a hostile rocky place where you really need to use shoes. The pool is better but it's not a resort for complete relaxation since there are Animators there that, as always, encourages normal calm people to become a nuisance for others.
A guess it's more of a family hotel, and not so much for couples.

It gets a 4 from us, but barely.

We stayed in May for 2 weeks
So, the best things first:
The outer coral reef is outstanding, one of the best we have ever seen! The outer wall grows and branches in beautiful coral gardens mostly of the porites solida family, hundred of years old, healthy from bottom to the top, reaching 7 metres in height. There are also some nice fire-blade corals, star corals.
Surprisingly the fish variety was poor, maybe depending on the season or overfishing. Anyway we saw some fishes we have never seen before: zebra shark, honeycomb filefish, star puffer,broom filefish, orbicular spadefish. There are hundreds surgeon fish on the top of the reef, some turtles, guitar fish... Not many groups of fish.
The visibility was good on the far left and poor on the right (also depending on the season, they say July is far better, but you have to stand the heat!) due to the cold current catching more the left-north part.
The outer reef is from 150m far from the beach entry on the left-north ( enter at the tip of the small bay past the hotel grounds) to 20m far right-enter at the dive center.
The small book you get in your room is excellent, explaining the reef,entries, etc!
Inside lagoons are murky, the left one is good for swimming, if you are a serious snorkeller, don’t waste your time there, go out, you will be mostly alone!
The wind constantly blows, sometimes strong. It is good, you don’t feel the heat and it is bad, it lowers the visibility, sometimes the sea is too rough for the outer reef. Check the tides for snorkelling!
Diving centre is very helpful and professional, we’ve been to El Qulaan islands, Sharm el Luly, Marsa Figuera.
The hotel: nice big rooms, quiet, little animation (could be even less or none!). The right hand rooms are more noisy due to the generator plant in the vicinity, the staff is very kind and professional- more freely speaking than during our visit to Egypt years before. The inside restaurant is badly aerated and poorly air-conditioned, so we ate outside- not enough space outside,you have to wait for the table.
The food: lots of choice, we avoided the cold starters and salads and nevertheless we got a stomach infection. We were surprised and annoyed, it never happened to us in last 15 years travelling around and eating in low and high places! Possibly we got it in the fish restaurant ( you have a free meal there once a week, if you reserve), from the seafood salad or the nauseating sleazy grouper fillet we only tried. We overheard some others complaining with high fever and vomit,we didn`t have nothing like that,”only” cramps and diarrhoea, cured with homoeopathy, anise tea, gin and 85% dark chocolate in two days!There seems to be an endemic problem in the food chain.
Conclusion: If you are a real reef lover it is definitely worth it !
By the way: In the desert there is a lot of plastic flying around, the Bedouin no longer live in tents, they live now in cardboard shacks.
