Very nice, very clean and with a lot of green area. The staff is very friendly and helpful, even if it can take a very long time ☺ Every day there was a wide selection of dishes available - very tasty and fresh. Unfortunately were the tables nothing special clean (but with the eating habits of many russian guests was no wonder). The double rooms are for three adults people definitely too small. These are but clean and for two people, very probably great. …  read hotel review

Best hotel we've stayed in

  • May 2014
This was our first trip to Egypt, it was myself, my husband and my 3 year old daughter. We stayed at the beach resort, we weren't looking to leave the hotel as we have a little girl, so it was more convenient and safer to stay in the hotel. This hotel was perfect for us as it had everything and more that we needed, so we never got bored. There were about +-5 pools in each hotel spread over a massive complex, with rooms spread out from each other, we never found it noisy. We'd spend 1 or 2 days ... at the main pool, then 1 or 2 days at the relax pool, then the water slide pool and then the wave pool. We were at the water slide pool in the garden resort the most as this was my daughters favourite. This is also the only pool bar that serves food, so we didn't have to get out of the water to eat. It was also the only place that makes proper chips. The other chips are all homemade crisps, my daughter preferred chips, which is also why she loved it there. Eid the bartender there was lovely and always made us laugh. The head chef there was also amazing and made every effort to make our stay special. He even booked the Chinese restaurant for us in advance as he was cooking there that evening which saved us having to queue up 45 minutes before to reserve a table. You had to book them at 6pm to eat at half past, but as its first come, first serve, so it was better to get there at 5:50pm to make sure you got a table. While my daughter and I were showering my husband always went ahead first and we met him there which worked quite well. The al a carte restaurants were all equally delicious, we preferred going to these rather than the buffet as it was difficult to carry my daughters plates and drinks swell as my own, so it was easier to be served. The lebanese was my favourite, they had a stone bread oven outside making fresh pita breads and they brought a mini coal grill to the middle of the table, filled with different skewers of meat. Delicious!! As my daughter's name is Leila, which is an Egyptian name, everybody was always making a fuss of her. Mr Abdula was absolutely amazing, nothing was too much trouble for him and he made every effort to make us feel special and part of the family. He also offered to reserve a table for us in advance for the lebanese and upon arrival at the restaurant he came to greet us and bought my daughter a toy camel which she loves and appropriately named "Mr Abdula". We visited all the pools and pool bars so can honestly say the best bar tender by a mile was Mahmoud Amoud at the relax/quite pool at the beach resort. You never had to ask for a drink as he would top it up for you, he was always walking around the pool offering drinks to everyone and serving them, even if you sat miles away from the bar. He was extremely quick and efficient and always full of jokes, so kept everyone happy,relaxed and well taken care of. We got a room over the quite pool which was beautiful. Our room cleaner made the most amazing towel art everyday which kept us giggling. The animation team at the garden resort were better in my opinion, we didn't meet any at the beach resort although this was our hotel, and animation chief Messi was hysterical. So, to some it all up this hotel was definitely 5 star, the grounds in both hotel were absolutely beautiful with lawns and flowers everywhere. We had the most amazing time snorkelling off the private jetty and taking pictures of fish. The food in all restaurants was delicious and the staff were amazing. Would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone, it was breath taking on arrival and even more so when we left as all three of us wanted to stay longer. Would definitely go back. read hotel review

    I rode a camel in the beach with my daughter which was good fun, and all three if us did quad biking, which was brilliant, it was great that we didn't have to drive anywhere to do an excursion, it was all at the hotel . We also had a photo shoot which was also good fun and got some pictures, the only criticism was that they were a bit expensive at £5 a photo for the quality wasn't that great. The shops were great , and the shopkeeper at the pharmacy with the turtle was lovely. The airport was only a shirt drive away and also full if souvenir shops. So lots to keep you busy while waiting for your flight.

All in all it was a wonderful holiday, the staff were friendly and made sure your stay was perfect. If you needed anything you only had to ask once. The only problems were the beach had sellers walking up and down all day haggling but they are not part of the resort, so you just have to put up with it. The A La Carte restaurants were brilliant, but the way they booked the tables was a bit annoying. There was only two sittings and you had to queue early to reserve a table, go away for half an hour ... and then return to have dinner. read hotel review

The hotel makes you feel welcome from the moment you arrive.the staff are very helpful and nothing is too small for them to be of assistance. The entertainment team are always around to help you enjoy your holiday and if you do happen to have any problems they pull out all the stops to get it rectified for you. The a la carte restaurants are brilliant with a selection of different types of food. The room attendants are always cleaning your rooms to a high standard every day. weather was great so a relaxing time is had by all. ... This is the second visit to the hotel and it will not be the last. Let the hotel know your requirements in advance of your arrival. read hotel review
