I stayed here in March , the hotel is all inclusive , if you are able, get a room in the 300 series as they are near to the pool/reception/bar etc , those that stayed in the 500/600 had problems with hot water.
The hotel is clean and the staff friendly , there is nowhere nearby to go for food so one has to use the all inclusive, the food is plentiful but same most nights , by the end of the week I could go to the buffet blindfolded.
The free drinks stop at 11pm an there is the nonsense of signing for all the alcoholic drinks. Avoid the mini bar, go to the shops that are on the beach ( left out of hotel) where you can get 1L bottles of water for 5 EGP instead of the 10 EGP for a small bottle in the hotel. Avoid the shop in the resort as they are having a laugh.
The room safe wasn't bolted down , so didn't see the point as someone could walk off with it .....
The place is crawling with mozzies so a spray/plug in required
The only other advice is , if offered a trip to Luxor be prepared for an 11hr return journey starting at 5am, really too ambitious
