We (family of 4) have just returned and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. We paid extra for a pool view room which we felt was worth it. Our room was a good size with a double bedroom and seperate twin bed area. Large walk-in shower. The food overall was good, although the main (buffet-style) restaurant does get busy at peak times. There are separate Chinese and Italian restaurants with waiter service on site that are included in the All Inclusive package, although you have to book beforehand. The staff do a very good job keeping the hotel, bedrooms and grounds clean. We had no stomach problems, although we supplemented our immune systems with some probiotics, as recommended by a well known high street chemist. Use wipes/ hand gel and follow basic hygene rules (banknotes are very dirty) and you should be okay. Three of us did suffer from mozzie bites though, although we have no idea where it happened. The music around the pool during the day may not suit everybody so just do your sunbathing at the other end. The nightly entertainment in the outdoor theatre can also be noisy. The large twin hotel opposite (Grand) is worth a visit. The grounds are vast and snorkling can be done at the end of the long jetty (very helpful expert on hand who refused a tip!). There are a few shops, banks and chemists nearby but be prepared to be constantly hassled when walking down the street. Just politely decline...they are used to being rejected! Tipping is expected so get some small denomination notes/ coins asap. We can recommend the Star Gazing excursion and the Red Sea cruise. The Seascope submarine (that doesn't submerge) was good but very noisy down below, although we shouldn't begrudge children enjoying themselves spotting fish!
