Just got back from this hotel and the first time to Egypt and we loved it.First couple of nights we were very hesitant because its a new experience with tipping and so forth but once you got used to it that s not a problem. they are lots of different advice on what to tip on here but we tipped in american dollars and egyptian pounds and euros all notes and they are more than happy with either and the evening bar staff are very attentive if given 2 or 3 dollars,you NEVER have an empty glass..thanks Mohammed you were a star!!!People lower the rating on hotels for silly things in my opinion eg no cold cloths,no welcome drink but seriously we as a family can look further than petty gripes.Having said that we did get offered a cold cloth at check in,our suitcases were delivered to our room and even removed from our room and loaded back on to the coach at the end of our hols with a wave goodbye from many staff,which after picking up from grand Azure and watching them struggle with their cases and no send off and a truly horrific review from one family from there im so glad we chose where we had.The rooms were spacious enough for the time you spend there,yes they were a little dark but i did my makeup in the bathroom,its all about saving energy here which i think is good.The entertainment team worked tirelessly,long hours to keep you enterttained,one small gripe was the evening entertainment,'skye' were pretty dire and needing replacing and the entertainment started too late for us,little tweeks could go such a long way.
Snorkelling was FANTASTIC,be brave and go off the jetty...very deep and preety cold but fab,the fish you see is really unbelievable...endulge in a good waterprrof camera.
Only ventured outside once to go to the chemist to stock up beforehand and we hated the amount of pressure to go in shops,but if thats what you like,youll love it here.
Food was lovely most night,yes we did get a few tummy gipes but i dont think its the food,most probably the climate as its absolutley baking here so stock up on factor 50 and drink loads of water,it didnt put a dampner on our hols but we did see three people flake in the heat...day and night as it is like sitting with a hot hairdryer pointed at you,even at 11 o'clock at night.
i know iv wittered on but fort people visiting first time i think these little things help,feel free to ask any questions,this is only my opinion on things but hopefully i can help,we are looking into booking again next year!!!
