"We returned from our stay the day before yesterday (stay 8/5 - 8/12/2023).
Overall, I rate the hotel very positively, we had a wonderful room with a sea view.
Everything in the room is functional, perfectly cleaned every day (we have been to Egypt many times, so we can compare), every request fulfilled without waiting. the staff is very friendly and clearly cares about making the client feel good and happy.
The food is varied and rich, I don't quite understand some of the reviews in which people complain about the food in this hotel. Every day there is an opportunity to choose something different.
Breakfast - a selection of many types of pastries, omelets, eggs, waffles, desserts, fruit, vegetables, spreads, salami, cheeses, yogurts, fresh juice, hot dishes, etc.
We didn't go to lunch
Dinner - chicken, beef, turkey, minced meat, fish, seafood, shrimp (it's not true that they don't serve fish here - during our stay, the fish was grilled outside twice), lots of delicious side dishes, salads, fruits and vegetables, excellent pizza also pasta, Indian dishes in the Indian corner, delicious desserts, etc...
During the day, refreshments on the beach and in the hotel area by the pools (burgers, fries, pizza, etc.).
To drink original Fanta, cola, sprite (no postmix drinks !!), it is excellent to sit sometimes in the air-conditioned lobby bar near the reception, they serve relatively good alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, cocktails, etc.
we didn't have a problem with Wifi, it worked well, although sometimes it dropped out for a while, but after logging in it quickly activated again and when it was running, you could work on the Internet quite decently. We bought a 20GB Egyptian data card just to be safe, but we didn't really need it much, the wifi really worked.
The beach is great, lots of free sunbeds, they will bring you any drink from the bar right up to the sunbed (this also applies to the pools). The pier at the hotel was being repaired and was closed, but there was another pier at the neighboring Palace Hotel about 5 minutes' walk away, which you can use. The pier was open every day. Super underwater life and corals, I recommend going earlier in the morning (before 9 am), the water is pretty clear, you can see well and there are fewer other swimmers. A lifeguard sits on the pier and makes sure that everything in the water is OK and that you don't have any accidents...
Not far away (10 min. from the hotel) is Port Ghalib, a nice walk, it is pleasant there, good restaurants, bars and the possibility to buy something.
To summarize everything - it was a great vacation and we will definitely return to the hotel again.
PS: minor construction works are taking place here, but it did not disturb us at all and you will always find a corner somewhere where you will have complete peace."
