My girlfriend and I stayed at Dreams resort the last week of October and both had a lovely time. I booked the holiday just under a week before we went which we hadnt done before. We were a little bit aprehensive after reading some reviews but thought we would give it a try!

The day before we went I rang the hotel and ordered a taxi which was waiting for us at the airport when we arrived. We werent sure whether it would be there as our flight was an hour and a half late but all was fine. It only took just over 20 minutes to the hotel though the taxi ride was a little on the scary side!

We arrived at the hotel and checked in quickly and the bags were taken to our room. The room was clean and plenty big enough for the 2 of us with a balcony facing the main swimming pool. The room was cleaned every day and various things made of towels left on the bed, even a crocodile one day which was very impressive!

The swimming pool area was very nice and we always managed to get the sunbeds we wanted although we were up fairly early each day to make the most of the sun as it was dark by 5pm.

People came round the pool on the first day selling papers and asking us about using the spa, camel rides etc but we told them we werent interested and they didnt bother us for the rest of the week except to say morning. I certainly didnt feel hassled in any way.

In our opinion possibly the only downside of the hotel was the food. Chicken or Beef was the main dish every day which was nice but got a bit boring! There wasnt much choice although the pasta bar was nice and made a little change. Though I guess on the upside we had no signs of illness and neither did any of the other people we spoke to which is possibly a bit unusual for Egypt!

This hotel is mainly full of Russians and I think the food reflected this. Incidently they seem to have no manners and think nothing of pushing in. Though I think the bar staff appreciated it when you said please as it only seemed to be the English who said it!

We just went for a relax and literally did nothing all week though we spoke to people who went to Luxor and Hurgahada, we just didnt fancy the travelling.

It was a lovley hotel to stay in for a week but we both said we didnt fancy 2 weeks there mainly due to the location and food. It literally is in the middle of the desert!

just got back from a lovely first visit to egypt, hotel was very clean staff were very pleasant and friendly , the location i have put down 2 star but this is only due to the fact that it is a developing area with not much around but the complex itself is very nice there r lovely swimming pools, had a lovely hour long camel ride along the beach, very enjoyable ,the food was lovely buffet style restraunt with a different theme night every night, for the first few days we just had chillout time on the beach and by the pool, but then middle of the week we did the super safari trip on the quad bikes along with camel ride to the sunset in the desert, afterwards we met the beduin (nomads) people and had dinner ,and did sum star gazing on the way back, we had a fabulous time and wud definitely reccomend this trip too anyone who goes there. the following day we had a trip to luxor which was a full day out visiting ancient egypt sites, we were well looked after and completely safe on both these trips by sum great egyptian people. the rest of the week we had more chillout time before going home on the thurs, which to be honest i was quite sad about and i could have stayed easily for longer time ,hence i will be going back to egypt sum time in the future !!!!

This is our independent, unbiased, view of the hotel; we’ve broken it down into sections and, hopefully, covered all aspects!

General Overview
Please note - we didn’t involve ourselves in the evening entertainment so cannot and will not comment, please see other people’s reviews.

On the whole you feel safe in the hotel and there are security guards patrolling the perimeter and guards at the main entrance gate.

There are 5 places to eat (main restaurant, Italian Restaurant [this must be pre-booked the day before and is included if you are staying All Inclusive], Noah’s Ark Fish Restaurant [also requires pre-booking and is NOT part of the All Inclusive], Pool Bar – lunchtime pizzas, burgers [not every day], chicken wings [not every day], salads, chips and afternoon tea cheese & cucumber rolls, cake, chips, Grill Bar – have no idea what they serve here as it never opened while we were there!).

There is one main swimming pool, a central pool (not suitable for swimming as there are pedalo’s and fountains), a kiddies pool and a water slide, a deep plunge pool and 4 or 5 small plunge pools around the sides of the garden area outside the ground floor accommodations.

A spa has very recently opened and this has a heated swimming pool, a fully equipped gym and massages, steam room, sauna, jacuzzi.

There is one disco (rarely open) and an amphitheatre for evening entertainment.

There are 3 bars – the Pool Bar is only open during the day, the reception bar is open 24 hours and has two tables with umbrellas outside, the other bar is the ‘Tent’ near the beach and this is open in the evenings.

The beach is split into two with a jetty in between.

There is a diving centre based at the hotel which is run by Grand Blu - they can be found through search engines - [--]

Reception
Very impressively decorated and the reception staff are very helpful but only one or two of them are fluent enough in English. This, however, does not stop all queries and requests for assistance being dealt with fairly efficiently. There is Internet available via reception and, at the time of writing, the cost was $6 (or LE30) for 30 minutes and we had no problems with connection.

Restaurants
The Main Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is buffet-style with a different theme each night. Breakfast consists of cereals, continental-style buffet and the egg station where you can have fried eggs or omelette, yoghurts, fresh fruit and lots of sticky cakes! The waiter will bring fresh tea and coffee to your table but the rest is self-service. For lunch and evening there is a pasta bar where you can choose your own ingredients and these are then cooked in front of you and on the Oriental Night there is stir fry available at the same counter. We would recommend caution with the food, whilst we, ourselves, were unaffected we heard various stories of illness. The Rep blamed this on excess sun but we are not convinced it was. Advice, if you want to take it – avoid the salad bar (unless it’s been peeled), definitely avoid the rice (a great breeding ground for bacteria!), any shellfish and we’d be inclined to give the fish a wide berth. Best recommendations for the meals would be pasta or eat in the Italian Restaurant where there is full waiter service and a set menu of ‘better than the restaurant food’ and it appears to be cooked to order. Desserts are to die for – plenty of them, very attractive and very tasty! The waiters are friendly enough but lack communication and language skills so this makes for an interesting time! Also, they are very quick to clear the empty plates from your table, you’ll find yourselves timing how long you can manage keep the plate before it’s whisked away!

Rooms
Comfortable but a bigger lounge area would be nice. Beds are a bit on the hard side and the balcony is a bit narrow so no room to sunbathe. The general décor is tidy but felt a bit like a Travelodge and could do with being decorated more in the Egyptian style. The rooms are cleaned every day but not thoroughly and clean towels were often brought late in the afternoon so you could find yourself drying after a shower with a flannel! Occasionally, the towels would be left on the bed in an arty design but if you don’t leave the room boy a tip when he’s done the first one you don’t get any more, they just put them on the bathroom shelf! There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms so a travel kettle and supplies are a good idea. The fridge was stocked with 4 bottles of water a day, which we found adequate. These bottles could be refilled at the bars but if you wanted a fresh bottle of water you had to pay for it. The TV has one total UK channel – BBC World, the rest are a mix of European and Arabic speaking channels with some American programming. There is a safety deposit box in each room and it is recommended you lock all valuables away when not in your room.

Money
The hotel will not change traveller’s cheques but they accept credit cards and most currencies but we would suggest you take Euros as these appear to be the preferred currency. The Dive Centre does not accept electronic cards but you can pay with Euros, Egyptian Pounds, credit and debit cards.

Pools
The pool is the centre of the activities with plenty of sunloungers, umbrellas and hammocks around. There didn’t seem to be a need to go down at 6am to claim a bed! You are provided with towel cards (one per person) and the towel bar is between the pool and the beach. The entertainment/motivation team (they are called the ‘Animation Team’) were based around the pool and occupied you with various organised games, salsa dancing, pool aerobics and a sort of kids club. The downside to the pool area (which we didn’t use at all during our stay) was the DJ and his choice and volume of music – the first week of our stay was very loud music but seemed to tone down during the second week and we were told he had been replaced, so we tended to spend our days on the beach where you are well away from the music.

Beach
There are 2 beaches but only one appears to be in use at the moment. Both have windbreaks, umbrellas, hammocks and sunloungers and someone will bring the mattresses to you when you’ve decided which beds you want for the day. There is a bar on the beach that opens at 10am and, if it’s not too busy, the barman will wait on you all day. There is also a small kiosk on the beach, which sells chocolate, and cigarettes.

The beach is set between two rocky outcrops, on which are situated the flags advising whether it is safe to swim or not. You cannot access the sea from the beach at all as it drops off onto the reef and is a 35 metre sheer drop. If you paddle out too far the lifeguards and beachbed boy call you back. There is a jetty from which you can access the sea for swimming, snorkelling or diving but you need to be a confident swimmer as there is a strong current and, at the access point, it is 55 metres deep. The house reef is also accessed from this jetty and is covered under the ‘diving’ section of this review.

Diving
Currently, there is no boat so it’s all shore dives but this doesn’t mean the diving is substandard. We did 11 dives and each dive was a superb experience, spending 10 minutes on the bottom with a Sea Cow is an amazing experience (we did this at Marsa Abu Dabbab). The dive team are relaxed and friendly; the main guide, Hassani, genuinely wants every guest to totally enjoy each dive they do. The house reef has 2 sides (the North side being spectacular), it is a genuine virgin dive site having been dived on for only 7 months. Equipment is brand new and available to rent at reasonable costs and dive packages are available along with snorkelling trips.

Bars
The reception bar is open 24 hours but the All Inclusive stops at midnight. There is a singer in the bar most evenings who is a hoot! (Watch him preen himself in the windows when he’s singing!!). The Pool Bar is open from early morning until about 6pm and serves alcohol, tea, coffee, ice cream and lunches (12:30 until 2pm) and afternoon tea (4pm to 5pm). The Tent Bar is open in the evenings and shisha pipes are available for a small cost (about £1).

Shops
There is a jewellery shop, a perfume shop, a tacky gift shop with cigarettes, ice cream, chocolate and canned soft drinks, a shop selling sarongs, water shoes, masks, snorkels etc., one selling wooden and marble ornaments, etc. These shops are within the reception area. If you go outside the reception, near the Dive Centre, there are a few more shops (pharmacy, spices, clothes, etc) with scope for more to be built and stocked in the future.

Spa
This only opened during the first week of our stay and I tried the Cleopatra Treatment (a wonderful relaxing time including steam room, sauna, coconut body scrub and a full body massage). There is also a physiotherapist based at the spa and many aches and pains can be cured during your stay. The are too many treatments to list but there is a ‘menu’ available at the spa and the girls are very helpful and speak good English, as well as German and Italian.

We stayed in the hotel for 10 days in December 2022 and we were very happy with the service. The staff is super friendly, always welcomed us with a smile and were happy to chat.
The variety of food in the restaurant was great and we especially recommend trying any of the seafood!
Our room was about 5 min away from the beach where we spent most of our days. Rambo, Yosef and Omar at the beach were always ready to help and Ramy in the beach bar makes excellent coffee. We recommend taking water shoes since there are some stones in the water near the beach but once you go further there is sand, lots of fish, turtles and beautiful corals.To sum up, we highly recommend.

Just got back from 2 weeks at Dreams Beach with my wife and 12 year old son. Before I went, I was concerned about the lack of feedback for this hotel so here is my honest opinion.
HOTEL. Very nice, location but it is pretty isolated, (nearest town is 20 mins away in a taxi) but we didn't find that a problem. Taxi is 5 euro's per person from the taxi woman in reception. We took the taxi to Hurghada for a day out shopping. The trip is less than two hours and the taxi driver waits for you for three hours then you come back. That will cost you about 60 Euro's for 4 people.
ROOMS. Clean, tidy and comfortable. 2 small double beds, (3rd bed if requested is only a camp bed, not a full size single bed.) All rooms have a safe and a fridge. Bathroom is a good size with shower, bath, WC, washbasin and bidet, big mirror and proper hairdryer. The lads who clean the room are very good and always looked after us. (A £1 a day tip ensures excellent service)
MEALS. I've been to Egypt twice before and I thought that the food at Dreams Beach was the best so far. The selection was good, the standard was good, in all honesty, if you can't eat well here everyday, you must be a very fussy eater. The food varies from pizza and chips, (available everyday after 12:30 from the pool snackbar,) to beef, chicken, turkey, duck with veg in the dining room.The pasta chef in the dining room, (lunchtime & evening) makes a lovely pasta that even the Italians enjoyed. Breakfast had cereal, toast, omelettes, fried or scarambled eggs, tea, coffee etc.
DIVING. I was really concerned before I went because I didn't know if there was a diving school in the hotel. Don't worry, there is. Grand Blue Diving is a PADI dive centre www.grandblue.it The dive school is in the hotel, all the staff speak really good English and are really helpful. 2 dives a day will cost about 55 Euro's depending on what you need to hire. The diving is excellent, mostly shore dives but boat dives are available if required. There are so many reefs around the hotel that I was normally back in the hotel by 3 having done 2 dives. My 12 year old son dived as well and the staff were lovely with him. Don't dive with Thomsons because they will try and charge you 20 Euro's per day for a long taxi ride to get to their dive company (Emporer).
POOLS. Clean, big and lots of them. (nine I think)
GYM. Well equiped and very friendly staff.
ENTERTAINMENT. The animation team were always busy with something going on everynight if you wanted, but they didn't hassle you if you just wanted to chill.
BEACH. Not a real beach, you can't just paddle out because its a reef, but you can always get a sunbed to chill out on. The jetty goes out into the sea and you can snorkle or dive. Like all this coastline, it can be windy and a bit rough.
We spent most evenings in the company of friends we met there, drinking the Sakara Gold beer and having a wonderful holiday so thanks Pete, Claire, Josh, Gemma and Mike.
If you are going to Dreams Beach, you should have a wonderful time, but remenber this is Egypt not Blackpool. If you do have a tummy problem, go to the Pharmacy straight away and the tablets will cost you about 9 Euro's and should sort you out within 24 hours. My one complaint about this hotel would be the fact that in 2007, they are unable to change travellers cheques of any description. So remember this when you are sorting out currency. They will change Sterling, Euro's, Dollars, Egyptian pounds, credit cards etc.

First, to set the scene! I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and other sources before we went. I have stayed in many Middle-Eastern, North-African, and Asian locations and properties. Please remember that stars are awarded to a property for FACILITIES provided and not necessarily the customer service or standards available. Do NOT expect a 5* European or recognised hotel chain level of anything... go with an open mind, open arms and a holiday attitude!

So: If you are looking for a VERY lazy, relaxing break, in the glorious sunshine, with clear sea, blue skies, a massive pool, warmth and plenty of food and drink.. Dreams Beach is for you!

IF, you want adventure, action or sightseeing (whilst you will find some) then it would be best to find another location (as in, not Marsa Alam as a destination).

The hotel is clean, welcoming, friendly and helpful. Food is available almost all day in one part or another of the resort (All times except 10.30am-11am, 12pm-12.30pm and 5.30pm-7pm). There is a 24 hour lobby bar and tea, coffee, wine, beer, spirits, 3 juices, cola, lemonade, water etc are available (near pool and in restaurants too).

The food is generally buffet style and you need to be really fussy to not like anything! Breakfast is cereals, fruits, yogurt, breads, cakes, pastries, beans, eggs, sausages and salad! and if that doesn't do it, the chef will make you fried eggs, omelette or pancakes. Lunch changes daily but consists of soup, breads, fruits, desserts, salads, hot sandwiches (bread, salads and meat) but also meat, fish, veg, potatoes and a pasta bar where the chef will make you a personal dish from his fresh ingredients (note there is hidden meat here too)! If you really don't like anything, or just for a change, go to the pizzeria near the pool, they always have two different hot fresh yummy pizzas, salad and fruit. Snack time near the pool is cheese or meat rolls, fruit, cake and freshly made pancakes with whichever topping you like. Dinner is themed and whilst the food remains the same, the dishes are different! Two different soups, extensive salad bar, Egyptian food bar, fish, meat, rice, potatoes, veg PLUS from the grill outside, another fish and one or two meats or kebabs. The chef will cook pasta to order again and if you really can't find anything you can eat, just ask! They are quite happy to cook you plain fish, or cook something as you like it! Loads of desserts for dinner.. and there are small tubs of ice-cream in the freezer near the bar! Also, during your stay, you get to eat at the Grill Restaurant one night (booking required) and the Italian Restaurant (booking required). Italian was amazing and we would have eaten here again and again and again if we'd been allowed to (it was freshly cooked to order and personalised for our individual tastes)!

The hotel (as are almost all hotels in Marsa Alam as at April 2013) is in the desert, in the middle of nowhere! Likely is, unless you pay extra to go on an organised trip, you will spend your whole holiday in your hotel and its surrounding private resort and beach. There is nowhere to go without transport.. except possibly into the sea and further along the beach.

Dreams Beach is a relatively new hotel and whilst some areas could possibly do with a touch up, we didn't actually notice any areas which were in need! The public areas are kept clean, tidy and well maintained. Our room (we were upgraded to a suite) was large, peaceful, clean and had everything we needed including fresh towels daily, tissues, toiletries and bottled water.

There is a kids club which had various activities running throughout the day, including a mini disco in the evening. the children were all made to feel very welcome and the reps spoke in various languages so nobody felt left out (we heard Arabic, English, Russian and German).

The adult entertainment has various forms including daily sports - tennis and volleyball predominantly, evening shows (comedy, Miss hotel, Oriental), and the team are around the pool area all day to play water polo, darts, give dancing lessons etc. There is also a live singer for a few hours at night and the team might entertain you with their dancing! If you are asked to buy a ticket for the Fire Show "DO" the fire guy is great, but the snake man.. wow!

The main pool area is clean, well maintained, has free sun loungers and beds and towels are available with a token you get when you check in. The guys will bring you drinks all day if you can't drag yourself over to the bar! There are other pools too (inside pool, deep pool, slide pool, kids pools). The beach is the same (bar on the beach too), clean, waiters, towels, sunbeds etc. Don't expect to swim in the sea though, snorkel or dive maybe (see the guys around the pool) but there is LOTS of coral on the beach so climbing down the ladder on the jetty (or diving) is the way to get in (not for littlies).

So, apart from sunbathing, swimming in the pool, drinking, eating and generally being lazy, what else can you do? ... find Rami and book a quad bike trip into the desert! you will get filthy dusty but it is well worth it and if you've enough energy to climb the rocky mountain face, you will be rewarded with amazing views. Quads not your thing? Rami can arrange horseriding into the desert too... horses are gentle and easily controllable! Children can sit with adults on either of these. There is a dive school on site and you can practice for free without obligation in the deep pool, or just try snorkelling, the guys can arrange trips for you or you could even do your PADI course. If you want a real treat, visit PlanetSpa at the Dreams Beach Resort, scrubs, facials, sauna, jacuzzi and a wide range of massages for men or women, all at bargain prices.

Would we go again? of course we would! Would we do anything differently? We would stay two weeks as the flight is 5 hours there (from London) but six hours on the way back! We would also take our friends with us and we would learn to dive before we go there, to get the maximum benefit from the glorious coral reef and all its inhabitants.

I feel I must point out about these reviews you will read, Please keep in mind we all want different things from a holiday.

We are a family of mum, dad, 8 year old and 7 year old.

Location: Personally we like the idea of being miles from anywhere, We felt the children could play safe and was not worried about a stranger walking by and taking them. My girls are very friendly and will talk to anybody. (therefore we felt they where very safe)
If you don't want to take advantage of the AL then look else where cause there is nothing within walking distance.

FOOD: There is lots of choice, Pasta, Meats, Salads, Breads and lovely deserts.
Italian rest. Great but can only go once per visit (Not per week) ?? - When we went there where loads of empty tables (So it is not even cause it get fully booked)
Ice cream ?? can only get free in main rest. and not around pool?? - Although they walk around the pool and charge to your room?
Grill Bar: We didn't bother with as quite happy in main rest.
Noah Arch: Had to pay, therefore why pay when main rest. adequate.

ROOMS: Very clean, and big enough, All over looking the pools with private balconies, sat Tv, Hair dryer Etc.

POOLS: Great. One with small slide, one with a larger slide for the older kids, one internal pool, and basically one very large swimming pool.
The problem is when people are putting towels on the beds B4 they plan to use them, or people reserving the beds for there towels whilst they go else where for the day. (Someone needs to tell these selfish Gits that towels don't need to relax in the sun all day)
The hotel management seemed to have resolved this though by removing selfish peoples towels, and making them go to reception to clam there towels back. Haaa Ha
(Not b4 time if you ask me)
Staff walk around with ice bucket and give you chilled face cloths during the day, which is really nice, then a little later on they offer melon and grapes again which is lovely, So why not do the same with free ice cream ??

Beach: Forget this hotel if you want to doss about the beach and dip into the sea, It just isn't going to happen unless you want to go over to the jetty.

Ent.: If this is important to you forget this hotel, people tend to sit in bar playing cards.
Nemo (English Ent.) Just fussed over my daughters and made them very happy
Patric (Italian Ent.) Made just as much fuss over my daughters as the English ent. team, But I agree with other reviews, If you want to be entertained it really isn't the hotel for you.
(It is not a Thompson Super family)

We enjoy meeting nice friendly people and I can honestly say we meet loads they made our holiday, and I am a strong believer that a holiday is what you make of it.

Upset tummies: Ohhhhhh Boy Yes, Both of my daughters had it (1day) - Hubby (1day) - me (8 days) I wish I had gone to chemist and not tried the stuff from home.
I have read a review blaming it on drinking booze and sitting in sun all day, I can honestly say I didn't allow my daughters to do this, neither did me or my hubby But we where ill.
I do not know how or why we got ill, But we did??
I would recommend going to chemist as soon as you get ill, don't even try the tablets you get from Uk, They just will not touch it. Believe me you will get it or at least one person from your party will get it, every family we spoke to at least one person from each party had The DODGY BELLY! Great topic of conversation though LOL

I would go back to Dream beach, but you have to remember that Marsa Alam is an up and coming area, and they are still learning, we really enjoyed the quirky things and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
To some it up, clean bedding, clean towels, nice pools, great food, Excellent whether, Excellent AC, What more would you want.. ?

It worked for us... But it will not do for everyone.

I hope you find this review helpful, and if you do go have a brilliant holiday.

Where do I start? I read a lot of reviews on here before we went to Dreams Beach, some good, some bad, some crazy! If I could give any advice, its use your common sense, don't expect total luxury and remember - you're going to Egypt - expect a different culture.
We've just returned from a week at Dreams beach - stayed elsewhere previously but fancied all inclusive this time. There's maybe not as many options as with other hotels, but you're getting a fantastic deal at this resort all the same. Here are the facts from our stay:
- Rooms - lovely, clean, very friendly cleaners. Tip them a couple of dollars a day and you'll come back to some amazing towel creations each night. We were on the 1st floor and had no bugs, mosquitos at all. Fresh bottles of water in the room every day which you could fill up throughout the day around the resort.
- weather - as to be expected - hot hot hot! Coming from the North West we knew it would be quite a culture shock, so took it easy in the sun, taking some shade too, to make sure the heat didn't make us ill. Also - remember not to hammer the air con or ice cold water when you're hot - could also make you ill (see what I mean about the common sense?)
- Food - fantastic. Out of the 4 of us we had 1 pretty fussy vegetarian and 2 people who don't eat fish, and we all ate plenty. Probably too much. As for people who say there is no variety - I think they were at the wrong hotel! Loads of options in the main buffet every meal time, plus there's the pizzeria, beautiful crepes, plenty of pastries, plus the seafood restaurant and italian which we chose not to visit, preferring the buffet options. Again, use your common sense, try the local food but remember your stomach may not be used to the new flavours and richness, so take it easy. We heard one fellow Brit complain about the lack of pie - what did he really expect? - and on 2 occasions, there was even pie to keep these people happy! Breakfast was a delight with omelettes/scrambled eggs, pancakes, bread, fruit, cereal etc. Plenty to please everyone.
- Drinks - yes, the wine stops being free at 10... so move onto cocktails!!
- Entertainment - well it really depends what you're after. 2 of our group liked to socialise in the bar at night and take part in the activities - the Italian animation team were really welcoming and involved everyone. Whilst me and my other half enjoyed the peace and quiet at the beach. Bliss. Likewise in the daytime, you had the choice of the lively, noisy pool area or quiet beach. The singer each night is... interesting! Not the greatest, but what would you really expect on holiday - its light-hearted fun. The karaoke got a bit too much for us, so we retreated to the beach.
- sales guys - there's no denying you'll be pestered to go on trips, buy papers etc - but if you tell them you're not interested, they'll leave you alone, then simply come over to chat now and then. Between us we went on a camel ride into the desert, which was amazing, did the snorkelling trip, star gazing and bedouin night - all booked through the guys on the beach at the hotel, rather than through Thomas Cook - much better value that way.
- stomach bugs. Out of the 4 of us, one of us had A dodgy stomach for a couple of days, but it certainly didn't spoil the holiday - we just took it easy on food, drink and sun - to be fair, if we over-indulged at home we'd be just as ill -I think Egypt gets an unfair reputation for making people ill. I didn't hear of anyone being violently ill whilst we were at the resort.

I've probably gone on enough now. I'd recommend the Dreams Resort for a relaxing holiday. Its too hot to do anything but relax! The only reason I wouldn't return is because there are so many other places to visit! If anyone has any questions, feel free to get in touch.

Lovely Hotel, beautifully designed and attentive and helpful staff. The only problem for us was the food, other folk there were not too bothered but we expected much more. If you like chips with everything and no local food , European food all the way you'll love it, we did not. BUT we went cheap and cheerful and all inclusive (first and last time) So we can not really complain. Went on Bedouin camel trip, fantastic, well worth the money.

Enjoyed the break as it was a quiet week for two, although would say it is a great place for kids as super kids club.

Very hot, just right in Feb think may be too hot later in the year. 9 pools though plenty of space to cool down.
