As an Egyptian family , we were a bit worried about few negative comments that were mentioned by some travelers.
We did write to the management and we were assured that we will have a great time.
So off we drove to marsa matrouh , the road was ok on a weekday as we tried to beat the week end congestions on north coast road.
We reached around 2PM and we were quickly greeted by a lovely lady Ms Lucy and finished the check in formalities , we were also greeted by the manager Mr Mostafa who ensured that our special requests ( connecting rooms and ground floor ) are ready for us on arrival.
Then we were escorted to our rom by the bellman ( forgot his name) who was a very friendly person and informed us about the full resort facilities and how to make the best of our short break.
It was lunch time so we went after dropping our bags and refreshing after the 3 hours drive towards the main restaurant.
A Buffett lunch style that was well presented and had a lot of varieties.
After lunch it was time for fun under the sun , great spot for kids and adults too , crystal clear waters , almost no waves as it's a Bay Area , and we had no problems with sun loungers or towels , all staff were super friendly.
We had the all inclusive option , so unlimited soft drinks and pizza , grills , French fries were offerd on the pool bar.
Dinner was also great , a lot of varieties that suits all tastes , we were really spoiled for choice.
After dinner there was the night entertainment in the amphitheater , of course it was in Italian as all tourists thee are fron Italy , so we spend few minutes there and headed for a nice walk on the beach promenade.
Back to our rooms , very nicely decorated as an African Safari theme , were we crashed after a long day.
Next day breakfast was really a feast , you found all what is required to get a great start for the day , and agan to the lovely beach where we did couple of fun rides with the kid on the banana boat.
We were lucky to meet another very nice Egyptian family and our kids made friends unfortunately it was out last day for both our families.
They let us stay for only one extra hour as the hotel was fully booked , which is understandable but were offerd to stay and use all facilities after we vacate our rooms , which we did for another to hours before hitting the road back to home.
All in all it is a lovely spot and we already recommended to our friends and families.
Nevertheless , some things need to be adressed like the old fashioned tv , also to be more strict with hygiene principles in water dispensers of bars and restaurants. As we saw guests filling used water bottles instead of using the provided disposable cups.
When we complained to the bar staff , we were met with a careless.
We will still go back as it was one of our best vacation.
