Loved every minute of the holiday!!
My boyfriend took me here for our first holiday together and it was amazing! Staff were all very friendly, food was great. We spent most of our days snorkelling down in the sea and there was always lots of colourful fish!! Would recommend doing the quad biking ( good experience) and the diving tours as well, the housekeepers were always very friendly and wanting to have a chat and kept the room very clean with some great towel art on the beds :) I cannot wait to return here hopefully very soon!More
I spent the best week with my beautiful wife there hope to visit it again next year, the parties there is very wow; and the resturant is very good; the service is nice and the beach is clean, I recommend it for everyone wants a romantic weekendMore
This is the 5 stars hotel
Every year I go to this hotel since 2005 ... I adore the place starting with the management the rooms the service the entertainment the food the activities the cleanliness the location everything in this hotel is perfect it should be upgraded to 7 stars... More
We have just returned from this hotel and it was lovely! Everywhere was always spotlessly clean and all the staff are so helpful and polite, always there offering more drinks and full of conversation. The pools are great and the gardens are always being maintained, Italian restaurant was great and staff here are really lovely especially Ibrahim and Mohammed, they were always entertaining my 4 year old daughter, making balloons etc. Hotel has great views of the sea especially from the infinity pool and the seafood restaurant. Location is ideal for soho square for shopping, we did go to the sports hotel but didn't stay long as the front hotel is definitely much nicer. Food was nice but wasn't much choice for English, but then there wasn't many English people there so this was understandable. Our rooms were always cleaned daily to a high standard and the towel arts were amazing, special thanks to Sammy and Ahmed for this. We booked a few water activities with bobos who are located on the private beach and they were well worth the money, highly recommend the private boat trip to Tiran island with them, we were lucky enough to see dolphins on the way and the sunset on the way back was breathtaking. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and more English people should definitely visit. More

Even better than expected!
I stayed at this hotel for 10 nights from the 1st-11th August with my boyfriend. We loved every minute of our stay here and we would definitely recommend it. We stayed at the beach side of the hotel rather than the sports side. THE ROOM We stayed in a standard beach front room. This room was quite spacious and was decorated in a modern style. The bed was very big and if i was at one side of the bed and my boyfriend was at the other side of the bed, our hands could only just reach across it. This was good for when my boyfriend started snoring!! The bed was very comfortable to sleep in. We had two pillows each and plenty of sheets to share. In the room there was a desk and several chairs, a television which had 4 or 5 English channels, two large wardrobes, plenty of draws and a mini fridge. Every day a 1.5 litre of clean bottled drinking water was put in the room with two glasses. This was a great little extra as we had heard that the tap water in Egypt could not be trusted. In the bathroom there was a large shower which had plenty of space and was also a wet room. Every day we had two large and two small towels placed in the bathroom. Shampoo, soap and a shower cap were also provided. On the wall in the bathroom is a small hairdryer which came in handy. Our room also had a balcony which had a stunning view of the beach and Tiran Island. From the door to our room we also had a nice view of the pool. We were given three signs to put on our door. One for if we did not want to be disturbed, one for if we wanted fresh towels and one for a complete clean of the room. The cleaner did a fantastic and thorough job and we were very happy with his service. On several occasions we came home to towel art on our bed of a swan, a heart and a flower which were very impressive and a very nice touch. THE GROUNDS The grounds of the hotel are kept tidy by a hard working team of gardeners who can always be seen working hard around the hotel. There are lots of pretty plants and bushes all around the grounds and the gardens are very nice to walk through. For the whole 11 days we were there i never saw one piece of litter. THE STAFF All of the staff in this hotel are extremely friendly, polite and helpful, Everyone we spoke to could not do enough to help us. However for us certain staff members really stood out above the rest. Nader (Malcolm) who works at the pool bar made our holiday extra special. Every day he would make sure that we always had a drink or whatever we wanted. He was fun and always made us feel welcome at the pool bar. He deserves to be recognised for all his hard work, as the pool bar would not be the same without him. His happiness and friendliness makes the guests around him feel happy too. He is excellent with children and the children all love him. He is always rushing around to make sure that everyone is being served and never stops working hard. We give him 10 out of 10 for his excellent service. Ahmed (Tito) who works as a lifeguard and works at the towel station was also very helpful and friendly. In the mornings he would greet us and help us find a sun lounger. He kept us amused with funny stories and again went out of his way to help us and made sure we had everything we needed. A big thank you to all the staff who really went above and beyond to make our time at the hotel extra special. POOL BAR The pool bar is a great place to sit and relax. I liked spending time here talking to the staff and other guests. The food here at dinner time was great. They have a wide range of food but my favourite was the cheese burgers and chips! Osama did a good job of running the pool bar, even though that is not his usual job. All of the staff who work at the pool bar are very friendly and polite. In the day you could also get ice cream and nuts at the pool bar. PIANO BAR The piano bar is the only place in the hotel that has wifi. The wifi was quite slow due to the amount of people trying to use it at one time. I would recommend using the wifi either early in the morning (around 7:30) or later on at night (around 11:30) as this is when it works the best. Me and my boyfriend liked spending time at the piano bar as it is a very relaxing place. In the evenings a pianist plays lovely relaxing music which is great to wind down to. The staff in the piano bar are also excellent and we could not fault them. FOOD For each meal time there was always a wide range of food which has something for everyone. The dining room itself was very well presented and is a nice place to eat. The tables were set differently for each meal time, and in the evening crisp white table clothes were put on the tables along with a full set of cutlery and napkins. Staff work very hard to reset the tables after people leave them and are always running around making sure everywhere was clean and tidy. Bakr, Hany and Ibrahim were our favourite staff in the dining room. For breakfast i would recommend making a cheese toastie in the toastie machine and i also enjoyed the pancakes in chocolate sauce. For lunch i liked to go to the pool bar to eat. For our evening meal we liked the pizza and the wide range of cakes for dessert! The hotel also has an on site Italian restaurant and a sea food restaurant. Evening meals at these restaurants are an extra charge but breakfast and lunch are still free. POOLS The main pool is large and very clean. In the mornings there are pool activities such as volley ball tournaments and aqua aerobics. The volley ball court is always in the pool and anyone can go and play. In this pool is the pool bar. This pool also has a great view of the beach and the sea! There is an indoor pool in the spa which is nice and refreshing as it has cool water. This pool is only a minutes walk from the main pool. There are also several other smaller pools around the hotels grounds. CLUB There is a small on site club called Normandy II which is nice enough, but we only visited briefly as you have to pay for drinks in the club. SHOPS In the reception of the hotel there are a few shops which sell almost everything from handbags to beach balls! At the entrance to the hotel there is a strip of shops including a supermarket that are handy for picking up anything you may need. ENTERTAINMENT The entertainment at the hotel is okay, but you do have to go over to the sports side to watch it. There are shuttle buses every 10 minutes from the beach side reception which take you over there. We didnt watch the entertainment much as we went out to Soho Square most nights. THINGS TO DO: SOHO SQUARE - Soho Square is just a five minute walk from the hotel and has plenty of restaurants, shops and clubs. You can also find a cinema, bowling and ice skating here. It is best to go after 8pm as this is when it starts to get lively. There is a nice British pub called The Queen Vic which serves the best fish and chips in Egypt! There is a large musical fountain in the middle of Soho square which does water shows every hour. SNORKELLING - On the beach of the hotel there is a plastic pier which goes out over the coral and into the sea. Here you can snorkel in the day. There are plenty of tropical fish to be seen and it is a great experience. SCUBA DIVING - On the beach there are several huts where you can book excursions. We decided to go scuba diving and it was an amazing experience. We were picked up from the hotel in the morning and taken to the scuba diving centre. From here we got on a boat and were taken over to Tiran Island. Throughout the day we stopped at three different locations to do snorkelling around the coral reef! This was incredible and we saw many types of fish. At the second stop we got to do half an hour of scuba diving with a guide. We went 10 meters down and it was amazing. We had our own personal photographer who took loads of great photos and got a video of us. Food was also included on the boat. This day trip cost us Â£45 each but was definitely worth it. For an extra Â£30 we got a disk with all the photos and video on. DESERT TRIP/QUAD BIKING - We chose to do the desert trip which involved quad biking into the desert, a camel ride, African dance shows, food and stargazing. This was a great experience and again was a full day out for only Â£30 each. GLASS BOTTOM SUBMARINE - This was a great three hour trip which showed us many tropical fish from the safety of a boat. You could see all the amazing coral without having to get wet! CONCLUSION Overall i would say that this hotel is definitely worth staying at. It is in a great location with lots to do in the local area. It is clean and the people are very friendly and give great service. Thank you so much to the staff and the hotel for the great stay! We will be back! 10/10!!!More
