We spent a great vacation in this hotel. The condition is really very good. The rooms are really very, very large bathroom. Shower and bath, separate wash basin and toilet. Everything is very clean. We thought it was particularly pleasant, that the 6 existing pools not like so often centrally designed, but over the whole complex spread out.

  • Recommended hotel

  • Beach holiday
  • August 2014
Large room, breakfast good, lunch good but diner was often not wel cooked because of a large number of guests, the food was served before it was wel cooked. Pools were perfect, personel very friendly and there were a lot of excursions available. We did a camel ride and an excursion on a boat to do some snorkling by the beautiful reefs. The undersea world is magnificant. We had one of the best holidays ever and we recommend the resort, it was perfect. Try the a la carte chinees restaurant, also very nice. There are also two italian restaurants, 1 ... a la carte and a free italian restaurant (one that you don't have to book). The free italian restaurant was also very nice. read hotel review

I don't know why many people here complain, the hotel was outstanding the staff is super friendly, the food was (as i had already other hotels in Egypt) The rooms were cleaned every day at the pool and the pools were very well-kept the bars. The entertainement during the day was okay, if you don't want to let you also in peace and in the evening the shows were great. Internet access available in the lobby for 1 hour 5 Euro for 2 days 10 Euro or for 6 days for 28 Euro So we will definitely be back. Perhaps ... they have then also for the children super RTL or RTL as tv channels in german. The only criticism we have is the dress code for dinner: long trousers for gentlemen must really be careful that it is respected as the hotel, many did, and went out to eat and had a long pants are still our. So the hotel must really do something or abolish the dress code. read hotel review

Very friendly staff, nice hotel. Very few other guest so the atmosphere around the pool areas was rather quite, but animation team tried hard to get peoples moving. Food was OK, we visited the ' restaurants but were not very surprised by the menu they offered, always visited the dessert buffet afterwards :-) read hotel review
