I'm not a complainer, and this is how I found the hotel and all that goes with it. Travelled with Thomson who I use 90% of the time, no prob, only to be told on the last day by some one else that they charged us £13 per person for the Egyptian visa on the coach and if we had gone to the bank at the airport it would have been only £10 pp. Arrival at hotel was 10 mi s or so from airport, very swift check in, quick delivery of bags to room. Block 1, 1st floor, large family room , free safe, lovely bed, nice big pillows. Tv picture quality poor, just like to catch up on what's happening whilst getting ready for dinner!! With BBC world news, only English Channel . The shower power is quite weak, when o called about it, it got a bit stronger, but not a lot. Beach restaurant for lunch and buffet, but only the buffet for evening meal, 5* hotels usually have 3 or 4 al a carte restaurants, although you can pay extra to go to the Italian. The selection in the buffet was adequate but not vast, (the children's corner was very poor, glad we didn't have our 18 month granddaughter with us.) the evening entertainment was laughable, not sure if they were new and trying out their routines before the high season arrives. However, the staff were wonderful, so friendly, Karim and Mohammed in the bar, and the rest of them plus the restaurant staff.(Tayeb) Drink selection is not the best. ( I don't drink much) but no amaretto or champagne !! The snorkelling was amazing, the fish were fantastic . I would go back for a week off peak, for the sun, fish, and relaxation. Can be windy, beach shoes are a must . I have done 5* Caribbean , Mexico and Cuba . I would give this 3*+ in comparison.
