    Fabulous

    I loved the fact that you don't feel like you are in Egypt, the staff is so easy going and they won't push you at all on bakeesh (tips) making a huge difference. I also liked that snorkeling is very easy at the hotel beach, lots of fish and coral reef. Perfect for families. All inclusive is a good choice, buffet is big. Rooms a little dated would not hurt remodeling, but still very livable spaces. We had a great time. Fare for taxi from airport to hotel is about 100-120 LE.

    The taxi left us in the middle of the road when he dropped us off from the airport. The hotel staff that was at the front door of the hotel, did not even bother to help us with the luggage. I think that was so inattentive.

    Very good

    Based on our previous experience I can say that this hotel is really worthy. Good staff, clean beach, beautiful corals with a lot of different fish, food for any taste. Also I loved shisha place there and bars are nice. Thats not the place for parties and all that stuff, but one of the best I think for quiet and relaxed vacation.

    Well, in the morning a lot of yachts come on reef and people are such pigs that they throw their rubbish into the sea and when it is wavy all bottels, paper appears near the shore. Not very cool.

    Very good

    Above average A/I hotel in good location with nice (though small) beach with direct access to coral reef for snorkelling etc. Chose it on recommendation of Rough Guide and was not disappointed. Cliff-top location gave great views over Ras Mohamed area, but despite this, access to beach was good via both steps and ramps. Believe I had a better room than the "single saver" that I booked - was a quite comfortable double so maybe I was lucky!

    Nothing of interest within walking distance outside hotel. Nearest is old market in Sharm but this was several km taxi ride.

    Fabulous

    It was small enough that you had the opportunity to meet people;adults and children alike. The family suite's layout worked well, sleeping a family of four comfortably.

    Having to pay for internet! Food was okay. Lunch was the best with fresh barbecued fish,poultry/meat available. Dinners got to be a little repetitive. The staff in the main dining area seem to be always in a rush - so evening meals were not very relaxing or intimate at this location - more like a glorified cafeteria. Thankfully the other Italian restaurant provided a better evening setting. Some staff were too friendly/chatty to my 13 year old daughter - she found it to be quite uncomfortable at times.

    Hotel staff was very heplful and kind excluding reception staff. The beach was a bit small but we could fit there anytime. The staff at the beach was very helpful. And the sea was beautiful. Best corals and marine life! Best hotel for snorkeling and diving!

    The hotel itself and hotel park are is well-designed, the food is exellent with the veriaty of international cusine experience, beach is clean and sea world is interesting. Staff seemed to be pro-active in most cases.

    can't remember any particular negatives

    Fabulous

    Its location by the sea and the beautiful corals; the pool area and diving facilities; its all-in formula and plenty of food was value for money

    Staff was interfering when we were asked to fill out an evaluation form, we found this very inappropriate; entertainment was poorly managed; rooms were in a noisy area and smelled smoker rooms; cleaniness and amenities of rooms was just so but when we had filled out the evaluation form, immediate action was noted

    Nice atmosphere with very well trained staff. Good food. Location is wonderful and away from stereotype spots. They have a complete programme for the entire week.

    Internet connection is too slow.

    Breakfast is good

    Shower doesn't have door. Room is just so so. We paid money for two family suite (292$), but all of us (4adults) have to stay in one family suite which is only 146$ online. It is even more expensive than Renaissance where we stayed for the next 2days(378$ for 2nights for 1 family room 4adults capacity). Beach is so small and full of people. 90% rooms are very far from beach, even 15min walking.

    Superb

    Good location, courteous staff & meals were included in the package. Everything was within the resort right from the swimming pool to the beach. So you can enjoy your entire day within the resort. Apart from the children policy which was misleading for the room which I booked, everything was fantastic.

    We had booked 2 rooms, a Double Saver & Superior Family Room (2 Adults + 2 Children). The website clearly stated that Children below 12 stays free of charge using the existing bedding. My son is 5 years old and they conveyed upon check-in that in Double Saver Room child cannot stay with us as per the hotel policy which is quite absurd. So they charged me US $ 100, as per the other room policy (1 child stays free and other is charged 50% of the room rate) which I had booked for a friend of mine. On reaching the Double Saver Room, it was quite spacious and the irony of life is that my son was with us throughout our stay in the hotel, so I strongly believe that I should not be charged anything extra.

    good F&B service team, food taste was good also the variety was fair

    Front office team was not up to the standards, i had to wait about 45 minutes for my luggage pickup, show at last day of my stay was so weird and i commented this to font office manager who agreed, maintenance at room very poor also quality of room amenities, simply it is a hotel i will use for emergency
