The hotel has approximately 400 rooms (according to the description, have of course not recounted). In allgemeien we have the facility to be very clean.

    The staff at the hotel are very friendly and responsive, smiling. Everyone greet travelers, smiling at us and the mood even more rises. The staff have always wondered if everything is good. What we asked staff acted immediately. Staff good relate to our child five years. Even without our request they brought into our room one more bed for our kid, to he does not fall at night)) My husband and I returned from a night walk and saw that our son was sleeping not on one bed, but on the two beds. it was very pleasant to us))) It's nice when nothing you need to think because the staff thinks about you)) Many thanks to administrators at the reception, especially Ahmed, who is very well speaks Russian. All questions he solved very quickly. Thanks to the bartenders for their work and their smiles. Guys you make very hard work and you do it perfectly! Thanks Ragay in the lobby bar for his always in a good mood and nice words. And special thanks to Wageh in the bridge-bar for smiling, quick service, friendliness and the most delicious cocktails and for your attention to our child. I really appreciate this! Wageh, you're the best bartender in the hotel! )) Many of the staff are fluent in Russian, so that problems with communication will not. Staff in bars speaks a little in all languages )) Cleaning service is held every day. It was very nice)) Our room was always clean. Thank you for this)) When we checked into the room, in the bathroom above the mirror had no bulb. we reported this to the cleaner and during half an hour screwed the bulb. when I dropped into the pool the electronic key of our room at the reception administrator smiling sweetly replaced it in a minute. when our child began to cry, the receptionist gave him sweets. In short, a huge thank you to the staff for their efficiency and care! ))

    Animators worked well. in the first half of the day was water aerobics in the pool. husband every day playing water polo. took place on the beach dancing lessons. An evening performance on stage and disco. showed performances with fire, games and dances with children, humorous performances and competitions. there was a children's club, but we did not go there baby, so I can't talk about it. well done animators! cheerful and active. Especially liked animator Misha, he's the best! Misha, I will return and will avenge you - I'll push you in the pool, I promise! )) Very nice and clean pools. Plenty of space. Different depths. I liked to sit on the marble chairs right at the pool and drink cocktails and to dance - kaif! Beautiful panton at sea. I liked walking on the pontoon and admire from it with fish and crabs. We've swimming with mask and looked at the corals and fish - awesome view! I've seen a lionfish directly under panton next to corals!!! Hooray! )))))

    The hotel is next to the Sea. Hotel has private beach. Our room was about 100 metres from the beach. The beach is gorgeous! Very well maintained and romantic. Stunning beds and mattresses transformers. Stunning views of the sea from the beach! Warm sea breeze blowing in your hair and caresses the body and creates an unusually good mood ))) We did not have any problems at the airport. Our tour operator was AHEC. The hotel is reached in half an hour on the bus with a guide. He told us about Egypt, and about how much money do I need to get married. Much more than in Russia )) Dear Arab men: come to us in Russia and Belarus, over here marriage is cheaper )))) And many Russian women love hot passionate and smiling Arab men )) Returning to our posh hotel)) There are many shops in the hotel with smiling vendors who make good discount and with whom it is pleasant to talk to. My favourite seller of handbags Regen. I recommend to go to visit him. and if you do not buy a bag, just a pleasure to talk)) in the stores, the hotel has everything you need to relax and of course you may choose a lot of interesting gifts for friends and relatives. Our tour operator gave us a lot of excursions to choose from. we chose the paradise island, diving and safari. All loved it! Especially riding in a jeep. Our driver Hani ride us at breakneck speed. This trip through the desert on a jeep we will remember forever )) And of course we were stunned with beauty of underwater world of the Red Sea!

    The hotel is 1 hour far from Hurghada in the middle of nowhere. There is no another hotel in neighborhood, there is no taxi, only shuttle bus of hotel, that run two times a day, if there are enough number of turist. The view from a corridor to alongside by the fence out of hotel: litter, dirt and building refuse. At low tide the sea is 4 hundred meters from the beach, it was pleasant warm.

    The stuff are very friendly, smiley and helpful, but don' know their job: catering. First day we got 1 bottle clarified, chlorinated water per person (I think it was not mineral water) and after it we had to fill the empty bottle in the lobby from a tank with lukewarm, chlorinated and intensely chlorine tasted water. The softdrinks from machines made of this hideous chlorinated water. The bottle beer was trashy and warm, it has got awfully taste. Only the draft beer should have been drunk and it was cold in rare occasion if there is. Draft beer every day run out of stock, all of the bars, they lied that. Sunday i called the manager, because we haven't got for 2 days draft beer, but we pay for all inclusive board. The stuff fill the drinks in to HOT glasses, that abstract from the dishwasher machine.

    Summary: drinks are lukewarm and chlorined, undrinkable. We parched all the week in the desert. I was 5. time in Egypt, but it was the first awful experience for me here. Never more.
