For Aussies this resort may be an unfamiliar concept....it's one of those family holiday clubs that you may have seen on TV shows. Whilst you don' t have to participate there are organised activities and kids program. All meals and house wines, spirits, beer, soft drink, tea and coffee is all inclusive. But stay away from the local Gin - it taste like kero.
The rooms and facilities are great. There is also very nice spa/massage centre on site; prices are reasonable. A very relaxing environment - you can find kid free areas.
For those visiting the Red Sea area for diving there is a dive centre on site as well as a tour desk. There are a number of small shops for souvenir shopping. An ATM is available also.
All meals are buffet style, but this can become a bit monotonous if staying more than several days. Although we didn't try them there were two other eating places on site for a bit of variety.
I think this resort is pretty typical of the area - it had a high rate of German guests, so don't be surprised if the staff make the assumption you can speak German too.
