Спасибо за прекрасный отдых

Posted Jan 27, 2015 on Hotels
Отдых очень понравился ,я приезжаю в этот отель не в первый раз,но зимой впервые.Приятно обрадовало то что египтяне зимой на много шустрее,или я на этот раз был уж сильный "тормоз". Питание на "высоте" ,спасибо шеф-повару.Особенно порадовало то ,что персонал в этот раз очень приветлив и всегда готов к услугам. При этом ,не как раньше ,только за "чаевые". Они конечно всегда готовы их получить ,но всеми поступками показывают ,что это не обязательно.И это особенно приятно.Обязательно приеду в этот отель еще раз ,и именно зимой.

Not worth going to

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Having been to Egypt 3 times before, I can say I'm very disappointed with this hotel. It's lacking in all categories - facilities, staff, service level, food. It's been a disappointing experience overall. -Facilities I understand that at the time of this review (November 2014) 1/3 of the hotel is under renovation and maybe soon it will be completed and up-to-date. But during my visit, the facilities are are in a state of neglect. The washroom in the room had to be flushed multiple times. It sometimes took more than 5 minutes to wait for hot water in the shower, and when I got hot water, it was boiling hot. Air conditioner in the room was not adjustable so you are either stuck with an ice cold room or a hot humid air. It's good to have friends living in other sections of the hotel in case there is no water (happened to me)! -Food I did not go to this hotel to enjoy a very nice meal every day, but some variety (other than chicken, beef, and fish) would not hurt. Fruit selection was very small as well - they only had oranges and pomegranates. Drinks are represented by powder apple, mango, and orange juice or pop. They do have real juice (guava and tomato) but you HAVE to tip in order to get it, but this is more related to the Service section of this review. -Service level / Staff This is where this hotel 'shines'. There were some very nice people, which you wanted to tip, and there were some characters that you want to argue with because of how rude and demanding they are.

Good value for your money

The positives: The location of the hotel is excellent. Having an all inclusive service in Egypt is great. There was food and drinks available mostly all day. It is located in the Soho area which have many shops and things to do. The diving and snorkeling are just beautiful in the area. Some of the hotel managers were very professional! The negative: A few(not all) of the employees at this hotel were rude specially to women. My wife ordered spaguetti with red sauce and she was given it with white sauce, when she asked the waiter, he just told her "just take it and eat it" I had to complain to the manager and they were very apologetic and told me the employee was just tired. Like this case there were others. The food can be better, it was OK Overall, good service and value for your money. Managers, please train your employees with great customers services since people have choices now.

Very good value, awesome location!

The best thing about this hotel is the immaculate grounds and the beach. It is a huge campus and there are canals and walkways with beautiful landscaping throughout. The hotel is next to the much more expensive Savoy and the beach is just as nice--lots of sand, two jettys, fantastic snorkeling (a much larger area for this than other hotels in the area), a bar and grill and a diving center right on the beach. There are about 2 flights of steps to get to the beach level from the hotel level. There is a vehicle ramp you can use if you have a stroller or wheelchair, but it is quite a workout. The hotel is also next to Soho market for shopping/entertainment/restaurants. As the other reviews said, the rooms are a bit tired, but were kept clean and are fairly decent size. Given the size of the campus, you should request a room next to the place you most want to spend your time. The two main pools, including the kids section, are furthest from the beach, near the lobby and main restaurant. There is another pool near the beach but on the hotel level that has spectacular views of the sea and Tiran Island and also has a waterfall and hanging vines. There is a restaurant on the beach on top of a small cliff, also with spectacular views, serving Egyptian cuisine for lunch. It was very good and convenient if you are like us and spend most of your time on the beach. The staff everywhere was great and they were especially nice to our son! We will likely return!
