  • 4.0.Fair

    The rooms were clean. Nice views. However the guy at reception was unfriendly and tried overcharging me so I book directly with hotel. Made me wait 30 mins. I Asked for a glass of water upon arrival. Never gave it to me. Told me go to bar and made me wait. Unfortunately below average service at this rate. 225£ already counts as a luxury hotel especially in Egypt.. The service was max 2.5 stars not going to come back. Sorry..

  • 8.0.Very good

    It's a very nice and comfortable hotel. My suite was a bit far from the lobby however it was okay. Room service is slow and could be improved. As an overall experience, I would definitely recommend the resort for the several pools and services it has.

    Great value

    Beautiful hotel, nice pools, nice views. Not super close to the town so you have to take a short tuktuk or car ride. Staff is friendly but not always super responsive. No wi-fi in rooms.
