After a bad trip in Cairo I found this hotel through Trip Advisor. Tucked away away behind a gated community of upper class condos and villas is a really wonderful resort, three resorts actually. The Pool was amazing it is made to look like a lagoon and they did a great job. It is large and has shallow ends for the kids.
The food was great, breakfast and dinner were included and they had a buffet of different foods each morning and night. You won't go hungry.
The hotel offers different restaurants on the resort and we ate lunch at the Beach Club a few times. It was priced very reasonably.
The rooms were roomy and the bathrooms were large and clean.
The staff were very helpful and service was prompt. The A/C was really noisy when we got there but they called maintance and it was fixed within 20 minutes.
The have all sorts of activities for young and old and a 5 Star PADI dive Center on site that has a variety of courses for kids through to adults and Pro Courses as well.
My 10 year old daughter took the DSD course through them and worked with Ahmed. He was really great with her, paitent and you can tell he is passionate about what he does by the effort he puts into it. She first went for a two hour lesson in the test pool at the sister Beach Club and in the afternoon was checked out in the sea on Dolphin Reef. I went with her and it was the ultimate Mother/Daughter expereince. Thanks Ahmed!
The staff at the dive center are all really great and of course the Dive Center Manager, I called him Mr. Italia, but his name is Maurice speaks, English, Italian and French so no worries about language problems. The equipment is in great shape and they have a very nice and organized equipment room. All being run very smoothly!
I missed the beach, awesome white sand, lots of umbrellas and the staff are not holding out there hand all the time for a tip! They will bring your chair cushion to where your sitting and make sure your comfortable. They have an activity staff that are all multi lingual and will ask and not push you to particiapte in a whole lot of great activities.
There are no flags on the beach to tell you if it is ok to swim because you can walk out along way before it get's deep. So don't worry about asking the staff if it is ok to swim. LOL
When low tide has arrived you can walk all over and look for shells and see jelly fish and other small marine life.
Not much more I can say....it was great!
Well Done Staff of Stella Grand Hotel!
