Staff here will always offer you a warm welcome and many have been singled out and mentioned by name for their exceptional customer service and their willingness to see that you have an enjoyable stay with the bar staff especially always on hand to top up your drink to ensure that you are always refreshed.
Just yards from the beach
With the beach and the Red Sea located just yards away you can enjoy a nice swim or you can sun yourself on the golden sands. Should you wish to stay nearer to the hotel then the large inviting pool is an excellent spot to take it easy with plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas available and the area surrounding the pool is kept clean and well maintained by staff.
Spacious and spectacular rooms
The rooms are very comfortable and cosy and there is lots of room inside so you won't feel cooped up at all and have beautiful views of the gardens, the pool or the sea. Housekeeping do a good job of keeping the rooms clean and soft fluffy towels are replaced every day.
Not many British guests
Most of the other guests staying here are either Russian or German so a lot of the entertainment, including live sports on the television, is geared towards them. Most of the staff do speak English so this is not a problem, but you may find yourself in the minority as far as other guests are concerned.
Food menus are uninspiring
Although there are three different restaurants the food is pretty much the same across them all and doesn't change much from one day to the next.
A hotel for cat lovers
Many previous reviews have mentioned the number of cats in and around the hotel which may not be to some people's liking with some complaining about the smell and the noise from fights.
