Me and my Fiance traveled here in June for two weeks. Overall the Hotel was Nice and the Room was cleaned every day and I couldn't fault how friendly the staff were, especially the bar staff at the African bar.
I had read reviews before we travelled that said it is not for English as it is full of Russians and Polish but it didn't put us off going, however i now understand these reviews as the other guests were so rude and had no manners whatsoever somebody actually pushed my hand out of the way whilst I was getting a drink so that he could get one!
There was only us and one other English couple there the whole time we wre there. The staff do seem to love English people though!
Both me and my other half got ill whilst away and the food was pretty boring, if you don't like pasta then there isn't much else to eat apart from chicken which got quite boring as that was lunch for most days!
Also when we arrived we weren't told that lunch was in the grill everyday so we nearly missed lunch the first day and there were no labels on the food telling you what was in the pasta dishes which wasn't too good for me as I am allergic to garlic so I had to be careful what i had to eat.
You can't fault the beach and the sealife is amazing, so great for snorkling.
It was just a little too hot for me the second week and I love the sun but i think it was in the 40's so if i went back to Egypt I would go at another time of year when it's not as hot.
I wouldn't go back to this hotel simply because we got so ill and the food wasn't the best.
We still had a nice time but I just wouldn't advise English to go to this hotel.
