“Not so good”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I used this hotel once and demanded that the tour operator change the hotel for the next trip as I knew I would be back in Cairo/Giza another 3 times for tours. It was relatively clean and the grounds were maintained. The service was was slow and the staff not very motivated. 20 minutes to get a luke warm beer and another 20 minutes to get your change. The only thing this hotel has going for it is location. It is about a mile closer to the Pyramids than a much better hotel down the same road.

This hotel was very nice, very clean, and most of the staff were very friendly and accomodating. It is located across the freeway from the pyramids and not so far from other attractions depending on traffic! The room was large and clean, and the grounds were very beautiful. Needs some renovation, as the sinks are peeling and the carpet in the lobby is worn through in places. Breakfast buffet was average.. poor service one of the 5 days, out of coffee and no one to cook eggs or omelets. Overall a nice stay, and the other restaurants were good.

We stayed in this resort for the better part of a week in early January, 2012, and were very pleased with our experience there.

Our room was ideal for our family with two children; two cots were set up on the main level, while we as parents had the loft bedroom. There was a full bath on each level, and sliding patio doors overlooking the pool deck on both levels, with a glimpse of one of the pyramids from our upper level balcony. The room was kept impeccably clean, and the beds were luxuriously comfortable. A fruit/cookie plate was supplied to our room along with bottles of water, refreshed daily (in addition to the minibar).

We selected the half-board option, which meant that we had breakfast and dinner at the buffet restaurant on premises. For both types of meals the selection and quality of food available ranged from Egyptian fare to more European and American style dishes, so both my Egyptian husband and our American preschoolers were happy with the choices. Many dishes could be made to order by the attendant chefs who clearly loved their jobs and serving guests.

The best part of this facility, by far, was the attentive and courteous staff. From the bellhops to the front desk and housekeeping departments, we experienced polished professionalism. I know Egyptians to be typically warm and gracious people, and the staff at this resort combined these qualities with their professional courtesy.

The only drawback was the lack of wifi, which I was told will hopefully be in place soon in both the rooms and the public areas of the resort. The front desk staffperson who sold me the 45LE (approx 8 USD) card for 30 minutes of internet connection in the guest's business office room off the lobby was sincerely apologetic for this. While I would gladly recommend this resort to others, and stay there again myself, this is one factor I would probably want to know about ahead of time, so I could adjust my expectations accordingly.

What was sad for my husband and me was that the resort appeared to us to be at only approximately ten percent of its capacity. Like the main tourist spots in and around Cairo, it was mostly deserted (in comparison to previous visits in the last decade). This is likely one of the unfortunate outcomes of the past year's revolution, but probably unnecessary. I would encourage anyone considering a visit to Egypt to please do so, and support the Egyptian economy in which tourism plays a significant role. In our three weeks in Egypt (Dec '11 - Jan '12), not once did we experience any disruption to security or services, nor did our friends who happened to be in Cairo at the same time, and who elected to stay in a hotel just a few minutes' walk from Tahrir Square, which they explored on foot. Whatever you may hear on the news, Egypt is safe for tourists, and well deserving of our support. I highly recommend both this resort as well as endorse the Egyptian tourism industry; it is well deserved.

If you want to see the Pyramids, this is a good hotel to chose - less than 10 mins drive away. While it could certainly benefit from some renovation, it's very reasonably priced. We stayed there one night at the beginning of our trip, and one at the end, and our double room was spacious and clean both times. Staff were all very helpful.
We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel, both are buffet style and there was plenty of choice, inc vegetarian options. We would definitely stay there again.
