  • 8.0.Very good

    The waiters were lovely and helpful & very friendly. However I found the front desk staff very officious & snooty. The resort was extremely quiet with very limited facilities - one restaurant for breakfast & dinner & another for lunch. Breakfadt & dinner both a buffet. The room was serviced every other day ‘due to covid’ & the lack of amenities due to covid. I enquired about an excursion but informed the trip was not possible for one person (luxor) or would cost 450 euros (again very snooty & unhelpful). So I organised it myself for $175 - private taxi & english speaking guide. I think this hotel needs to get a reality check & be more genuinely hospitable. They let the waiters and pool boys down as they did a great job.

    Overpriced for nothing. Very poor quality construction. Small rooms. Has the feel of a youth hostel at times. Absolutely no surrounding leisure areas. Hotel is far and inaccessible
