Very Good8.0
Fun for a Week
Nice hotel. Good food. Unlimited bottle water. Beautiful grounds and a clean beach. Very popular with Europeans. Which meant 1. All prices were in Euros, but Egyptian Pounds were accepted. 2. There is A LOT of cigarette smoke, which as a non smoker made some areas unpleasant. There is an ATM at the hotel that dispenses Egyptian Pounds or exchange Euros/dollars for Egyptian Pounds to use out in town. On the grounds there are several activities to do like swim, sunbathe, snorkel/dive, and parasailing. Some are free, some cost extra. There are also tours you can take to Luxor. Off the grounds activities are limited. There are some more things to do up in Hurghada that is a 30-45 minute taxi/ shuttle drive.

Reception with a chip on their shoulder
We did not get the superior rooms as we had purchased. Superior rooms are supposed to be on high floors with Sea view. 2 of our rooms were on the 2nd floor with no sea view. I had booked 5 rooms and asked for these to be kept together 2 months before our stay and was asked to ask closer to the stay date. I asked closer to the stay date and rooms were scattered on various floors. Gymnasium, Spa and WiFi are additional charge (not so for many all inclusive resorts I have stayed at). Reception at the hotel were not at all welcoming and were not willing to listen to our requests. Dining area staff were very good and tried to attend to our needs. All other staff were friendly and helpful. On our final day we asked reception for a vegetarian breakfast box and got ham sandwiches.

Lovely atmosphere but tired & some silly elements
This hotel is very well laid out and spacious with the beach and swimming pools all within easy access .Staff are ok if a little grumpy at times and not very attentive compared to other hotels i have been too also the pools are quite tired and could do with a lick of paint and a tidy up , the other thing that is bad is you have to pay for wifi and the gym. Avoid the hotel taxi service and chemist and shops as they try to seriously over charge you . The spa is good and lovely salesmen and staff there .
