Hotels and holiday villages throughout Egypt are officially graded from 1 to 5 star but the standard is significantly lower than that of equivalent European star ratings. 1- and 2-star properties are unlikely to be used by British tour operators and are best suited to people prepared to "rough it".
The main and original part of this property looks a little tired not least because of the sparsely furnished lobby and large traditionally decorated activity ‘tent’ in the middle of the grounds. A more recent wing, with rooms surrounding the pool, has retained a smart glean.
The beach is wide and is backed by a jumble of dive and surf centres which add to the character. A definite appeal to sporting enthusiasts with few facilities for families with young children.
This property is separated from the main road by a long strip of car parking which runs in front of the single height predominantly white facade most of which is occupied by shops and a cafe. The actual entrance is reached by a few steps up to the arched, glass feature into which is set double, wooden framed doors.
