We arrived at the hotel at about 8 am, without solicitation we were settled at 11 o'clock, which made us very happy! We left our things in the room and went to dinner.
The hotel area is large and green, it is clear that they are caring! In one building they are currently renovating the rooms, but this does not interfere and does not spoil the impression.
The rooms are very spacious, very much like whole apartments with their own terrace or balcony. Every day they clean and bring water. Everything you need is in the room.
The food is delicious, you won't leave hungry!
The beach is spacious, there was always enough space for everyone, even more!
We saw such a situation that vacationers from the neighboring Rehana hotel made their way to our territory, since their hotel was overcrowded with vacationers and there were always huge queues for the pontoon, so for some reason they decided that it was possible to swim in the sea from ours, but our hotel workers they noticed it and did not let anyone in!
The sea is insanely beautiful, a lot of fish, there is a call from the shore and from the pontoon. Yes, there is a breeze, but it turned out to be only a plus, without wind it would be very hot to be on the beach, the air temperature in early November is +33 every day, the sea is warm and even was calm on some days.
Great hotel, never regretted that we chose it!
And it's not 4 stars, but all 5!! !
At about 9 o'clock we were found and called to the reception to check in. We were surprised that even before the promised time. Everyone was polite, we filled out a questionnaire and they took us to the room and said that the bracelets would be put on at 12 o'clock, just in time for dinner. This is wonderful, although, again, according to the rules of any hotel, check-in is at 14:00, and in this case we would not have got lunch. In each hotel, you have to pay extra for early check-in or late check-out, so I am surprised by the reviews in which they write that, you see, they were not settled at 4 in the morning and demand money. I want to ask, does anyone read the rules? Come another week earlier and wonder why no one settles and feeds for free. We were treated with understanding.
When filling out the questionnaire, I smiled and asked for the best room)) and indeed we were settled in a good room, it was overlooking the garden and even the sea was visible. Considering the fact that the territory of the hotel is very large, the location of the room was excellent, and not far from the sea, and to the restaurant. Yes, I agree that the furniture is not new, but we did not come to evaluate the furniture, and not to sit in the room, so nothing was embarrassing at all. The standard room is very spacious, everything in the room worked, the bed is large, there is still a sofa. After settling in, we rested a bit and went for bracelets and then went to a restaurant for lunch.
Food: typical of all Egypt. There is a choice and it is quite possible to eat. For breakfast, a mix of eggs, vegetables, cheese and sausage or fried eggs was served - this is optional. Then there are many different vegetables, sauces, cheese, various herbs, breakfast cereals, milk, yoghurts, pancakes, pancakes. There is always sweet, it is very tasty in Egypt, for those who want to get better)) I want to say right away to those who write that sausages and sausages are terrible - yes, they are the same everywhere for an amateur and it does not depend on the hotel. There was more choice for lunch. There were always 2 types of soup, various side dishes: rice, potatoes, pasta, meat: chicken, beef, vegetables, greens, fruits. For dinner every other day there was a grill: chicken, lula kebab, there were even tuna steaks. A couple of times served paella with seafood. Fruits commonly served were apples, melons, dates, guavas, and oranges. There was an evening when there were a lot of different fruits, plus grapes, peaches, figs, mangoes, pomegranates. But you can’t keep up with our people, they scoop up full plates, and then leave them because they didn’t fit. We did not wait for the new update. But you can always overeat with guava and dates. For dinner, they always give an extra bottle of water, but if that's not enough, there are water coolers in every bar, take as much as you want.
In addition to the standard three meals, you can still eat after breakfast - pizza, and after lunch - burgers, but we never went there, because we ate without it. Moreover, we not only arrived there. The only thing that the hotel does not have is Ala carte restaurants, which is probably why the four, although it is quite possible to do without them. There may be a queue at the bars in the evening, with us a man approached the department where they poured juices, and probably demanded alcohol, the bartender sent him to the queue. We stood in the same queue calmly, he noticed us and called us to him, asked what we wanted. We wanted to try the beer, he poured us without any. We then brought him a chocolate bar)) Another time was that we returned to the hotel at 11 pm, the bar was already closing, but the bartender saw us and poured us, at our request, what we wanted without unnecessary quarrels)) here is a vivid example the fact that there is no need to spoil your nerves and swear, you can calmly ask and everything will be fine for you.
Hotel staff: very friendly and polite. When you smile at them, they smile back at you and always ask how you are, the waiters wish you bon appetit. It's nice to be in such a friendly environment. I don’t know what people wrote about birthday greetings there, with us several times people were congratulated at a restaurant at dinner. All the waiters gathered, sang a song and brought a cake. Very cute, in my opinion. Cleaning: the room was cleaned every day, changed towels, put 2 bottles of water and brought shower gels, shampoos and soaps. On the first day we used what was in the room, so the next day the cleaner poured everything into the mountain to make sure that it was enough and then added it every day))) every day they made swans, peacocks, a dog, ships and all sorts of different things out of towels . We left him a dollar, then a chocolate bar. Very nice.
Sea: the bay is not windless, this should be taken into account, but in October there are still no strong winds, so this did not frighten us. There is an entry from the shore, but always in coral, otherwise you can stumble upon hedgehogs and all sorts of other marine life. When the tide is out, of course, you can’t swim much, but with the tide you can calmly swim. The pontoon is long, but we saw it when choosing a hotel. The red flag most often hung until 10-11:00, then they hung a yellow one and it was possible to go swimming from the pontoon. The reef is beautiful, there are many different fish, there is always someone to look at. Sometimes the wind was strong and the waves were large, in which case it is better to swim with fins, otherwise it can be carried away by the current and it will be difficult to row to the pontoon. But again, when choosing a hotel, this should be taken into account, this did not bother us. The main thing is that you can swim, like in an aquarium, for pleasure.
Animation: very cool guys, Mario, Sergey, Vika and Mido. Funny, but at the same time unobtrusive. In the hotel you can always find something to do with them. Stretching, darts, volleyball, water aerobics in the morning. After lunch yoga, volleyball and much more. In the evening there was always an entertainment program in the amphitheater, the fakir and fire show is generally cool. In general, you will not be bored. At the same time, if you want peace, then you can always find quiet places for solitude and no one will interfere. They go to the beach and offer excursions, the guys are also unobtrusive. We told them that we had already agreed with others about excursions, no one was offended or rude, and in addition one of them gave us bracelets. It's nice. Wi-Fi is available at the reception and near the pools, but we bought a card for $ 10 and did not bother.
In general, I want to summarize that if you smile at the world, then the world smiles at you. Relax and have fun, do not get hung up on trifles and walk "with a star in your forehead. " The hotel is beautiful and left only positive emotions about itself. Would come back here again with pleasure and for longer.
Regarding breakfast: upon arrival, the manager said that they have an agreement with tour operators that states whether breakfast is included on arrival or not, and so, they contacted their tour operator, in general, they hear this for the first time and there have never been any problems with breakfast.
Food: there is no choice, raw scrambled eggs and fried eggs, there are sweets, sausages, some kind of gravy (there are no plates for the dish, they appeared in a couple of days), so take everything and then you will know where everything is. There are signs on the soups and they do not correspond to the dish (one for sure). If you want oil - ask, they will give you. So, let's continue, there are breakfast cereals, vegetables, pancakes, fruits (melon, dates, bananas, apples, orange). Upon arrival, the vacationers served their own food, and then they put the glasses on, the staff imposes service, the guys in masks, but not all of them are wearing gloves. Put on 1-2 pieces. On Fridays they give soup with shrimp and crabs, there is rice with shrimp and mussels. Cooking spaghetti in sauce.
The animation is on top, thanks to the guys: Mido, Victoria, Mario and Sergey. Every evening there is an entertainment program, on Tuesdays the foam party in the pool is generally class. We got to one evening and one day - it's FIRE! You are on top. The fire show is also cool, very beautiful. At the central bar during the day and in the evening, music + disco until 23.30, I would like it to be longer, the tables are not always clean at the bars, there are some waiters who ignore requests.
In the afternoon there is darts on the beach, they teach dancing, bocha, water aerobics, volleyball, music.
The bar serves beer, whiskey, vodka, gin, cocktails and alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There are coffee beans in the bars.
The territory is well-groomed, beautiful, there is a place to take beautiful photos.
There is not always cleaning in the restrooms that are located on the beach and near the pools, you need to pay special attention, it's still hygiene.
Room: large, comfortable, with shower and bath. The room is cleaned every day. Towels are changed every day, but the towels are in very poor condition. There are gaps in the doors in the room, there are parts that fall off.
There are two playgrounds for children, one of them is being restored. In the evening, children are shown a cartoon, then a children's disco. There is no children's room.
The hotel staff is friendly.
The birthday boy's number will be decorated if you pay).
We didn't need that cake! It's important to pay attention!
There is basically no service there. This also applies to boorish attitude towards vacationers.
You have everything inclusive, but the beer, which is supposed to be issued before 23:00, is already out of them at 22! …
They don’t want to give out glass glasses at the bar, they pour everything into paper ones. Allegedly a pandemic... But! At the same time, in the dining room, many cooks and waiters without masks! They take our plates with their hands without gloves!... At the bar, without gloves, and without masks! )
The beach is not suitable for children! Instead of sand, stones on the beach near the water. There is a lagoon for swimming, but it is small and basically there are always a lot of people there, because there is nowhere to swim, because they don’t want to go to the pontoon.
On a pontoon with railings, be careful, you can cut your hands on them.
The pool near the sea is fenced with a yellow tape, for some reason you can’t swim there, although the Arabs swam there! )
Only animators raise the rating of this hotel! Thank them!
First of all, the hotel is well-groomed and clean, all employees are always friendly (except the receptionist, who demanded money for the delivery of luggage to the reception), and ready to help.
The room provided at no extra charge is very nice, location by the children's pool. All the necessary places (restaurant, bar, swimming pools) were from us up to 50m and it's very cool.
The food is varied, there was always plenty (the variety fully corresponds to 4 *), no one was hungry, everything is fresh, neither adults nor children had problems with digestion during the holidays.
Contingent for the period of our vacation - Belarusians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs (hello mother of Egypt), Arabs and very few Russians)))
The attentive lifeguards at the pools were pleasantly surprised and always marveled at the children.
The hotel area is large, green, in bloom. There are many Instagram locations) Stone retaining walls add a special charm.
Sea: sunset in a mini bay sand mixed with stones. Even at a depth of 1m there are many fish, without a mask this sea is worth nothing)
And from the pontoon opens just a fabulous reef! every afternoon there was a yellow flag and you can swim on the high seas. There are a lot of fish, the water is blue, the depth is great, but an attentive rescuer is always ready to help.
But the example of this hotel is the animation) Mido, Vika, Mario and Manu are the people who made our vacation unforgettable! They met us in the morning on the beach, entertained all day (shows, water aerobics, volleyball, darts), in the evening evening shows and then disco (it's a pity that instead of the promised 2 nights. , Music ended at 23:30-0:00) . But sometimes the animators offered to go to the center for a disco (we went with them to the Pasha Club, the animators made this trip safe, exciting and very interesting. ) I want to come back here again only because of this cool team!
Short pier! There is a paddling pool in the sea for kids! Pools!
Strong current in Nabq in Tambra, Rehan, etc. But in summer it is 3 degrees colder in Nabq. And the pool over the sea did not work!
Of the shortcomings:
1) No signs do not disturb!
2) The pool over the sea did not work!
3) It's music at the bar in the evening very much and noisy!
For your convenience, I will evaluate everything according to the criteria
1. Check-in, room, check-out
As soon as you arrive, you will go through security, you will be seated in buses and taken to hotels. In principle, everything is as usual. Already at the reception, if there are no people, they will settle very quickly. You and your things will be brought to the room by typewriter, carefully unloaded. This is how our settlement went.
The room is very spacious, I have never seen anything like it, especially in 4 *. It actually has 3 rooms + a terrace (if on the 2nd floor, on the 1st floor there are not beautiful terraces). Entering the room we see a table, a comfortable sofa and a TV on a chest of drawers, 2 small ladders and we are in the bedroom. A very large and comfortable bed (if necessary, they will put another single bed), or you can ask for a room with two single beds instead of a double bed. There is also a mirror, 2 wardrobes, a table for bags and a desk. I will pay special attention to the bathroom. There is both a bath and a shower room. Toilet - separately. There is also a hair dryer, it is located where the mirror and sink are. They tried their best on the interior, which is a plus.
As well as the settlement, the car comes for things, the bus and the airport.
Breakfast and lunch almost never changed, the same menu. The most colorful dinner. Sometimes there were ice cream and even sushi (in sushi place fish carrots).
The food is delicious.
Happy darts, volleyball, yoga, aqua aerobics.
I liked everything.
In the evening, everything is according to the program, fun.
Sun loungers are in good condition.
The sand is not very, you can easily get scratched for something.
The bartenders at the beach bar do an excellent job.
The sea is gorgeous, especially from the pier. A lot of fish, a beautiful reef, for this you need to go here.
It would be 10 if not for the animation, I hope you enjoy it.
Although the hotel is not new, but well maintained.
Wonderful green area, polite staff.
We especially wanted to mention the animation team: Mido who approaches his work in detail, Antonio who knows his business. And of course Veronica is a friendly and respectable girl who was very much liked by our daughter and us as well. This is a hotel with a soul ... ! ! ! ! ! )))
A lot of greenery, no hotel, but a solid photo zone. You can sit at the bar, where you will make delicious coffee, and admire the sea. The reef is beautiful, but before lunch very often a red flag because of the wind. There is an entry into the sea from the shore, where in the afternoon there is very warm water (it is shallow there).
There is only one restaurant, but the food is delicious. Especially enjoyed the fish day. Watermelons and melons were every day. Sometimes they gave delicious ice cream.
Long excursions were not taken because of the heat. Most of all, the children and I liked the excursion to the crocodile show. There, in addition to crocodiles, there was a cool fire show, a performance with a cobra. You could feed and pet the tame monkeys. And there was constant interaction with the viewer. Even the crocodile was given to the children to touch by the tail.
Of the shortcomings. Because of the greenery, there are enough mosquitoes. It is also often windy, especially in the mornings. Because of this, it is cold to get out of the water. On the other hand, there is no strong stuffiness.
