    Apartments are very basic and not what I would call clean. The first apartment we were given had only a fridge in the kitchen, no pots, pans, cups or kettle plus when you used the shower it flooded the bathroom. We asked if we could be moved higher up in the building with a view of the sea and the reception staff were very helpful and moved us the following day to a smaller apartment but one that was fully equipped in the kitchen and with a sea view.

    The shower was also poor and leaked everywhere and the shower curtain needed a good clean, although we had the equipment in the kitchen it wasn't clean and we only used the kettle and the cups after we'd sterilised them.

    The facilities advertised as being on site are actually at the hotel across the road from the site and they are reasonable. The Beach was small but clean and the sea was gorgeous, pools were very nice and the food at the Fish Restaurant was superb but the buffet restaurant was not much good, the food was much the same every day and was rarely hot.

    Evening entertainment was regular and good and the staff generally were very helpful and cheerful but English was not spoken very well. This resort mainly caters for German and Russian holiday makers and for the 2 weeks we were there, there were only 2 other English people staying.

    The staff were not able to book any tours for you and the only way seemed to be through a friend of a friend of a member of staff. Tours to Cairo are advertised at taking 6 hours by coach but actually take 9 hours and the trips to Luxor actually take 6 hours. There are no English speaking reps anywhere in the resort and none of the folders detailing the tours are in English.

    Finally, the Satelite TV only has 2 English speaking channels out of 80 and during the 2 weeks we were there it only worked for about 6 days.
