This was our first visit to Egypt and im so pleased we chose this hotel. We were checked in with a nice cool drink and cooling towel and taken to our room within about 10 minutes of our arrival. We were in room 330 which was on the top (3rd) floor overlooking the pools mainly, but we could also see the beach. Lovely big room with safe, tea making, fridge with a few fizzy drinks and bottles of water left every day. We had to ask at the bars for some milk for our tea as that didnt seem to be available. Our room was cleaned daily by the lovely Omar, he was very friendly and made me a couple of lovely little figures out of the towels. It was our 40th wedding anniversary while we were there and Omar saw our cards and left flower petals on our bed. Very much appreciated. The hotel staff were all great and everywhere was very clean.
We had meals in all three places to eat and all of them were great. The cocktails were lovely especially the Tequila sunrise and the Pina Colada.
The entertainment team worked extremely hard and were full of enthusiasm for everything that they did.
The weather was a great 32-35 degrees for the two weeks we were there. We didnt go far from the hotel because everything we wanted was there.
We were a bit worried about the stories we were told about having to tip everyone but inside the hotel none of the staff expected to be tipped, but were grateful when they were. We found that £1 coins went down better than Egyptian pounds.
Overall for our first visit we definately chose the correct hotel and would like to thank the staff for an enjoyable two weeks.Last week in April and first week in May.
