We've just returned from our first visit to this hotel, and we loved it. The food is great, the staff are great, there's plenty to do and its very clean. There are some renovations ongoing, but nothing that would spoil your holiday. ROOMS - Very large rooms, with great balconies. Rooms are clean, towels are changed daily, and bedding is changed regularly. There are tea anc coffee making facilities, and bottles of water are left daily. We left a note asking for an extra bottle of water every day, and we received one. There is a safe in the room which is free. There is a stocked mini bar (fridge) in the room which you have to pay for, but if you ask for this to be emptied, it will be done quickly, and you can fill it up with your own purchases from the supermarket. RESTAURANTS - The main restaurant is buffet style. The food was always delicious, with a great choice. For breakfast there was always fresh fruit, pastries, bread and tea cakes, cereals, cold meat and cheeses, and of course a full(ish) English. There are also crepes, waffles, omlettes, eggs etc all cooked to order. For lunch and dinner there was always soup, salad, hot food, themed dishes, pasta, spaghetti, fresh fruit, a good choice of desserts. The drinks are waiter service, but you can also go to the bar if you choose. There was a good choice of water, soft drinks, lager, wines, shorts and hot drinks. There are also 5 other restaurants on the complex, for 4 of these, free tickets are given. The Chinese, Indian, Mediterranean and American are all worth a visit. They are waiter service not buffet style. The Seafood Restaurant is not part of the All Inclusive, so we didn't try it. POOLS - There is a quiet pool (heated in winter), an amazingly large main pool (with a couple of water slides), and a kids pool. There are plenty of sun loungers available, and the towels are free. There is no culture of reserving sunbeds (thankfully), so you can move around freely between the pools and beach, and not have to worry about not finding another sunbed. The pools and the pool areas are cleaned daily. All have a bar with a good selection of drinks, and there are waiters who will bring drinks to you. BEACH - The sea is really shallow, but buy some beach shoes as there are lots of stones, shells, crabs etc. It is possible to walk out to the reef in the afternoons when the tide is out. There is a long jetty, and its possible to snorkel from it. There are lots of watersports available. Plenty of sunbeds, and the beach is also cleaned daily. There is a bar with plenty of drinks available and the toilets are really clean and modern. BARS - There are plenty of bars to choose from, and all are clean with a great choice of drinks and friendly service. Drinks are served in glasses unless you are taking them outside, then, quite right too, its a plastic glass. ENTERTAINMENT - The reps work really hard entertaining the kids (and adults too!). There is always volleyball, water polo, a quiz or something going on at the main pool and/or beach. There is no pressure to join in anything if you don't want to. There is also a nightly entertainment. COMPLEX - The gardens are beautiful, and the gardeners are constantly at work. The place is really clean, the cleaners never stop. There are some reasonably priced shops around the restaurant/ bar area, so you don't need to leave the complex if you don't want to. If you do fancy a walk out, there are plenty of shops within a 5 minute walk including a McDonalds, Hard Rock Cafe, Kentucky, Sports Bar etc. If you leave the complex and turn right, we found the shops there had nicer staff and were slightly cheaper than the ones to the left. If you do leave, expect to be hassled, but have a joke with them or say a firm 'NO', and they'll leave you alone. BEWARE of taking camel rides or photos of the camels outside the Hotel. They ask for £2 for a photo and then want £5, or tell you its £2 for a ride, and will not let you off until you give them £25. They can get quite nasty and are quite persistant. If you want a camel ride, use the guy on the Hotel Beach (he has a set price of £10 for adults and £5 for children). WIFI - At the moment, wifi costs £1.50 for 15 minutes, £3 for 30 minutes or £6 for an hour, although I believe this will be free from May. Some of the bars outside the complex offer free wifi if you buy a drink there. One word of warning, if you do this, check the price of the drink if there is no price on the menu!! We had a fantastic 11 nights here, and we will definitely return to this Hotel. We could not fault anything. Most of the people we got chatting to were 'repeaters', which speaks volumes.More

First Time Lucky
Our first visit to this hotel and it was great. Problem with food - too many lovely choices!!! Asked desert chef on first day which had nuts on [nut allergy] he said they would specify if anything contained nuts in future - did they? No - they put all deserts with nuts on a different table headed 'deserts on this table may contain nuts'. How fantastic was that then!! Room boy did some fantastic things with the towels, elephants, crocodile. Walk in wardrobe was fantabulosous, want one, want one. Staff friendly and helpful, obviously happy in their jobs and well line-managed. First Choice staff ? Sorry who? Absolutely not interested unless you were their age group!More

Another fantastic holiday
14th stay at this hotel which speaks for itself. Visited my second home in the sun again in February. Again treat like royalty. Every time we return improvements have been made to the hotel. The staff are a credit to this hotel which is why I return. Already booked to return in April, 2014 and we are counting down the days. Thanks again to the staff and management for another fantastic holiday.More

Perfect for families
My partner and I had 10 wonderful nights here 24.02.14 - 06.03.14. Transfer from the airport to hotel was 25 mins, however we did not make any other stops. It was extremely disappointing that the coach baggage handlers were harrassing guests for tips to load the bags onto the coach (I know this is customary but should still be a choice and not a demand!!). We checked in quickly and were promptly shown to our room. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Free toiletries are provided along with a hairdryer. TV had good selection of channels that included sport and movies. A free safe is also provided along with free tea and coffee. A mini bar is also available - we had a problem where we were charged for items from the mini bar we had not consumed!! After complaining this was removed after we filled in a form. TIP you can ask for this to be removed upon check in to avoid any problems. Good variety of swimming pools - as we stayed in block 14 and did not have kids with us we decided to go to the "quiet pool" this is not a quiet pool as advertised! Given the location and access this would be difficult to manage as it is a family resort. We are used to having kids around so it didn't bother us but if you are a couple seeking a quiet holiday this is not the right hotel for you. Food was excellent at every sitting!! Our waiter Amr was wonderful and looked after our every need and was only too happy to assist with anything we needed. Look out for Eslam the amazing pasta chef!! Hes a wonderful character and was funny and very accommodating. In the restaurant you are not allowed to directly tip your waiter (there is a central tip box) which I think is a shame!! As Amr really went the extra mile. We didnt really experience the evening entertainment but it sounded good from where we were. The sports bar shows most of the premier leauge football. If you fancy venturing out the St Georges bar next to the hotel was a good night out for the England football :0). There is currently refurbishment happening which caused a few minor disruptions, so you may want to check this before you book as we were not advised of this. All in all a good holiday for the price we paid. The negative comments are very minor and in no way had an impact on our holiday. I would recommend this hotel for a good family holiday. More

excellent hotel great service
2nd stay at this hotel still has a great service and a friendly atmosphere. perfect clean facility great pools and beautifully manicured gardens good food and reasonable drink. We stayed in one of the swim up rooms which was great even though the pool was a little cold. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. The only downside for this hotel is the poor internet service but we found if you need the internet go to falcon tours which is a tour operator only 200 meters from the main gate where you can hire a portable internet dongle for around £23 for a week, try falcon for excursions as well much cheaper than booking with the holiday reps and they really make the effort to look after you with no pressure selling we swam with dolphins and also took a tour of the desert on quad bikes both trips were fantastic.More
