This is a nice location with good beach, excellent weather let down badly by the food, the ice cream police, the shabby rooms, broken fittings, silly rules, noisy staff, dirty pools, electric cables hanging in the pool, dingy towels, slides out of order, liver for lunch most days. Limited wine even at advertised "allowed" periods, despite being supposedly all inclusive! Coffee/tea at any time other than meal times is extra. As a single person, I went to queue for wine in the dining room (no waiters!), only to find my meal removed when I returned.
Unpleasant odour in the evenings as the gardeners use toilet waste on the gardens. Lots of flies and mosquitos. Staff held shouted conversations from one side of the site to the other, regardless or inspite of the sleeping guests around the pools.
If another member of staff asked where I was from I swear I would scream. Only one blanket on the bed and no spare in the wardrobe. Even at Egyptian 3 stars this hotel is well over rated. When I tried to leave to site in a local taxi, it took 20 minutes of heated negotiations to get outside the gate, eventually I got out of the car and physically removed myself from the premises with my hands up daring the police guard to shoot me. It is more like a prison than a hotel. Local taxi charged LE60 to go to El Quseir, and back, hotel car (described as a limosine hoho) LE200. I need a holiday to recover from this holiday! Be warned, go elsewhere. In fact go to Magic Life Hotel up the coast a bit near Safaga, and experience how an all inclusive package trip can really be!
