Hope to go again!

From the moment we arrived at the hotel, the service was superb. We arrived extra early, about 9 am, and they checked us in. We later changed rooms to a location closer to the pool (because of our 3 year old), and they were very accommodating. The room was spacious! It was hot there, so we did have our A/C on. The resort itself is beautiful! The beachfront is very nice, with lots of seating. Unlike other hotels I have been at where the beach chairs are all taken with towels by 8 am, when we got there around 9-10 am each day, there were lots of seats available. The beach is rocky, like many in the Red Sea, and shallow - perfect for our little son. We did rent a paddle boat one day; they even had a little life jacket that fit nicely for our son, and the guys at the boat rental helped to fit it on him right. We found the pool to be freezing oddly enough our first day, and not too bad the other days. There is a small kids pool as well. The food is spectacular! Breakfast is the same daily, but so many choices. Lunch and Dinner had different specials each day, and we really looked forward to arriving at the restaurant to see what we would get to eat. The head chef was always out at dinnertime to greet guests, ask them about their food that day, and to help change up the empty trays. Our servers in the restaurant, Hamada and Waleid, were great - they always had our drinks at the table when we walked in! Actually, all of the staff are wonderful at the hotel. I really hope to go back!
