Can't really fault anything about the hotel. Really good restaurants on site- most of them free. Great pools with the option of a swim up bar, and then a lovely bit of beach ( in my opinion the best part of the strip of hotels because there were only a hotel one one side) Really good options for breakfast. There...

The furniture in the hotel room was old and very simple, but all is clear and works well. I really loved diving lessons which the hotel provided.

An ok hotel option definitely visited better in Egypt. Clean sheets, dining areas and relatively polite staff. Our rep was hardly ever available. The pool was clean but there were some issues with the beach and one bar staff member.
