    Beautiful surroundings. We only had to walk 2 minutes to the beach. For people who don't like the beach, there are 3 swimming pools with a bar at the centre of it.

    There are 3 restaurants, 1 buffet and 2 a la carte restaurants. We went to the buffet many times, quality was good. We also went to the Italian restaurant, this was excellent. Good portions and kind waiters. Both restaurants were very clean.

    The animation team made sure there were many activities; stretching in the morning followed by a ball game. In the afternoon the programme was varied; one day you could go and have a belly dance course, in which I participated , followed by aerobics, other days there were ball games in the afternoon. In the evening they would put on a show for the entertainment of all guests, which they did great.

    It's nice when you go somewhere for the second time, people remember who you are. We were here for the second time and actually got a fruit basket in our room on our second day. Very kind and nice gesture. As for the staff, they would do anything for you, so service is great!

A new management. Company have taken over the running of the hotel and although things seem to be slow in making the necessary improvements it is still only two months since they took over, so may be the next few months will see things starting to change.

The warmth that receives you right away at reception is real and not an act. Of course you can write about this and that but it is all small stuff. The hotel is just undergoing major renovation The team deserves a mention, they are all quick, helpful and very attentive. Thank you all. The animation team is always present, but not intrusive, the evenings are entertaining. A small drawback, however, is that the wind walls on the beach could be repaired, and there could be more of them. For all divers there is a great Dive Center at the hotel ..., thank you Svenja and Salem and the whole team. All in all an again a successful vacation. read hotel review

We always travel with thomas cook and we visited 6 Sentido so far. This one is the best Sentido we have seen. It is simply art of making a holiday. Very large landescape with fantastic very long beach. The rooms are good size, around 35 meters with a sofa bed. The food is very good and very clean "first time we did not get sick in holiday", the cleaning is very good in general. One high light is the heated pool as it was cold to go to the sea. read hotel review

Visited for the 3rd time and it was not the last time. The hotel is located directly on the beautiful sandy beach with available loungers and not far from the beach bar, where you can also get great food for lunch. The resort is very well maintained and equipped with 3 pools. Very clean room. The very friendly staff always tries hard to handle the guests' wishes. The food was also very delicious and there was always something for everyone. If you would like to relax outside of the pool and beach, you should take a look at the many ... offers in the spa area. Massages are highly recommended;) activities during the day like volleyball, boccie, zumba, water gymnastics, etc. There is always an entertainment program in the evening that is controlled by the entertainment team. This includes dance shows, Skatch show, Fakir show, etc. Special praise to the entertainment team. Had lots of fun and was always very funny. Also the evening shows were very nice. So again thank you to Adam, Vigo, Vicki, Vergie and Natasha for the nice time that would have been only half as nice without you:) see you soon;) read hotel review

Very nice hotel. It is never very full through the expansiveness and the many usage areas. Extremely friendly staff! The food is good and always varied. The rooms as well as the bathroom and terrace are very big. The bathrooms need to be renovated immediately, definitely not at a 5 star level! As well as the wind screens on the beach and the cushions in the bar area. You should change it to a 3-4 star level. The pool and garden areas are very nice. We had a 2-day excursion into the Nile Valley with a night on a Nile ... cruise - that is absolutely recommendable! Our guide was Yasir - great! You can relax perfectly in the hotel, everything is taken care of, even a doctor is there at all times. read hotel review
