At the pool we used most time the fridge broke down on 1st day so no cold drinks all week. Only had brekfast and choices were limited.
Staff were nice enough but entertainment was terrible.
I love Egypt but wouldn`t return to this hotel.

The hotel is spotlessly clean and the cleaners in the rooms were fantastic. The breakfasts were very nice and there was plenty of choice, fresh omelettes and pancakes were made to order.
The hotel was in a safe good location and the security was really reassuring.
The reception staff were very helpful, we visited the lobby bar on two occassions and felt the service quite poor the waiters were very slow to serve and gave the change in very low notes a mixture of Egyptian and U.S dollars so we did'nt know what the change was, we had to take it to the bar and get it changed for larger Egyptian notes(this they did but they were smirking) we felt this to be quite rude.

Towels put out for us every day at the pool which was colder than the sea ! but did,nt stop us from swimming in it lots.
Only down side was that the hotel is situated on the other side of the road from the private beach, you had to cross a busy dual carriageway but it was ok as only 10min walk.
You are close to the really great restaurants bars and shops great time bartering ! We are definatly going back again.
You MUST do the trip to Cairo brilliant day out we flew which took only 35 mins you can go by bus but takes 6 hours.
Take a travel kettle if you like your tea.

There are plenty of pools to choose from so never overcrowded, the best and biggest one seems to be the one at the top of the hill.
The pools are not heated though so didn't spend any time in them which is a shame as there is a swim up bar. The beach is better as it is more lively and only a 10min walk.
We stayed on a half board basis as we got a good deal but probably would not bother again as the selection is not brilliant and often strange combinations.
Can't really comment on the hotel entertainament as we did use it. I know they do theme nights with belly dancing and bbq etc, but with the centre of Na'ama bay so close we walked down town everynight.
We would go back as staff are friendly, its clean and is in a good location.

When you walk into the hotel it looks ok until you get to the rooms. The standard of rooms was ok but the decorating was poor, white emulsion slapped everywhere, I've never seen grouting like it. The furniture in the rooms was very tired and old but clean.
The pools were ice cold so no one was swimming.
The pictures on the Thomson web site made it look better than it is. There are better hotels along the same road as I saw when we were on the coach from the airport. (The airport should have a site of its own).

The rooms have air con/hair dryer nice size balcony overlooking pool area. Towels are changed daily you are given a clean towel daily for the pool or beach no need to take your own. We were b and b. Plenty of choice no need to go hungry something for everyone omelettes very nice, tea or orange juice tastes funny due to the water better buying fresh orange juice for a

The aircon didn't work properly and had to have the 'engineers' out twice! After the second time it worked but not as good as it should have.
The bar staff cannot keep track of who bought what drinks and they really, really don't like you to pay as you go.
The hotal never had any money for me to exchange traveller cheques. Had to walk down the road to do that.
The breakfast was standard for that sort of hotel. The omlettes and the pancakes were very good but the orange juice was orange in colour but not in taste!
The location is quite good, especially if you're a diver. Emperor Divers is next door and they were a very good outfit. Excellent dives.
The staff seem to loiter around on your last day, hoping for a tip.
I would not go back there. If I had been there with my wife instead of a group of friends I would have been very p'd off.

The Hotel was higher up than the beach hotels but if you are fit who cares.Its only 5/10 min walk to the private beaches Gaffy beach is best.(turn left outside hotel).
Although we were booked in for a single and a triple room, we were offered a family suite on arrival at no extra cost. This was really good as we got three double rooms, two bathrooms plus living and dining rooms and a decent sized kitchen with a large fridge - totally unexpected and very pleasing - also four air condition units.
We were given fresh towles both for the pool areas and the beaches every day - do not take your own - no need. The cleanliness in our rooms could not be beaten -when you talk about spring cleaning this was happening every day, we gave a good tip at the end of our holiday as the cleaners do not get paid a very good wage - worth every penny.
All the staff were very helpfull everyone speaks very good English.
The entertainment was about the same as you get in most hotels - alright at first then boring. There is so much going on in the resort that you do not nees the hotel entertainment.
The promenade (straight through the Hilton over the road from the hotel) has lots going on as does the main street which you will come to if you keep going along the promenade.
