It appears from the previous reviews I've read that we all clearly have differing standards and expectations. Having been to different parts of Egypt I was under no illusion what to expect from a 5 star hotel.
The rooms were pleasant and clean with large bathrooms and white and blue decor. Ours had the same painting on adjacent walls!
The complex is huge and has a number of a la carte restaurants which are themed. These are well worth a visit and can easily be booked on a touch screen computer in reception. We particularly liked the Asian one. The main restaurant is as expected, large, busy and sometime you are having to bite your tongue at the rude Russians. The food is average but no worse than any other hotel I've stayed in Egypt or Turkey. They are catering for many nationalities so it's varied to say the least.
The beach area is small and there were a few jellyfish on the beach however these were quite harmless and disappeared when the tide went back out - not stingers!
There were plenty of sun loungers, no arguing over beds or towel. Just pretend you're asleep or reading when the tour salesmen come round - they can get really annoying!
The gym opens at 10am and has some really good equipment. Plenty of cardio and the selection of weights and strengthening machines were almost as good as any UK gym.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the week away and particularly the adult only pool!
