Stayed at the Flamenco Beach resort for a week commencing 2nd Feb a large complex situated on a beach close to the city of El Quseir 1 & 1/2 hr transfer from Marsa Alam - A great holiday.
We chose the half board option, food was plenty & beef, chiken, rice, salad etc........ Drinks a little pricey but had taken duty free for the balcony as advised on here!
Rooms good size & clean, staff helpful - Simon our Thomas Cook rep was helpful.
Payments at the hotel are by reciept which you pay at reception whenever you like.
Beach large area for sunbathin - plenty of beds, a lagoon to snorkle from the beach, otherwise to get in the sea is via the hotels own jetty! Sea is crystal clear - Weather was 96 - 100 when we were there in Feb - a mini heat wave! 5 pools, 1 at the Flamenco resort across the road from the hotel part of the same complex. Plenty of areas to be entertained at Ali Babba tent, Pool bar, Granada disco - the reps try to get you involved loads. Lots of Italians but they are much nicer than the eastern europeans!
Hotel has its own camels - we took the hotel trip to The Lost city 28 Euros for 3 1/2hr camel ride - saw lots of ruined houses 3km into the desert, had a bedoiun tea then home - ok for your tanning & a laugh! Abdul the guide spoke no english!
El Quseir - a cool little city, very poor & felt untouched by tourism worth a visit for your water, coke & snacks we got 12 lge bottles of water, 6 lge cokes & 4 big crisps for £6 approx! Remember to barter like hell get your pressies here as the hotel shops charge you loads. The market on Friday is fruit, veg & fish but good atmosphere for culture!
Luxor trip was 5 1/2hr trip but is worth it, 1 day just isn't enough time there!
Abu Dabab snorkelling trip, saw sharks, rays, green turtles - The sea cow wasn't there - good for strong swimmers.
Camel market was cancelled not enough people set of is 03:05am south to the Sudan border - dissapointed couldn't go.
Our friends went to the water park & had fun other guests went to the Dolphin house = no dolphins on the day!
Reccomended holiday for relaxation, culture, sun & sea. A little pricey as it's a new resort in Egypt & there is no real competition just yet for the cheapness you usually get in Egypt. Hurgada is not far away & the hotel offers trips at a cheap price!
