Swimming is the only what you can do.

- half board (breakfast and dinner, buffet)
- same prices for egyptians and foreigners
- very expensive: starting from 210 LE + 10% taxes + 12% service

The hotel is quiet, friendly and empty (= not many guests).
The staff is that bored from doing nothing, that they offer you to carry your breakfast or your dinner to your seat after you have chosen from the buffet. But they feel tired to help you carrying your luggage.
Payment should be cash even if you want to pay via credit card. This is because of a short problem with the line. Pay with credit card or don't pay! Before you don't pay they solve the line problem immediatly. That's service!
- very loud fridge, nearly louder than the A/C
- around two or three times a day no electricity for up to one hour (I was standing under the shower, shampood hair and no water because the pump works with electricity) THIS IS A HOTEL SPECIFIC PROBLEM, because the other hotels have had light
- buffet: only worst class white bread, boring
- botteled water: the only place you can buy within the radius of 2km, next place to buy is the next resort ==> price is high
- beer and shisha is ok

Special dinner (for this service you will be charged extra, because you don't go to the buffet):
- you order big shrimps for dinner and will get middle sized
- pigeon: my wife was not able to eat it

We arrived 10 pm and stayed for three nights.
After the first night we started to look for the other resorts. If you don't have your own car you depend on a taxi, private driver or hitchhiking. A taxi I had never heard and seen, second happend just by accident in another resort, third will be the normal: Have fun in the sun ;-)
After the second night we went swimming and relaxing from the day before. After the third night we packed and waited for our private driver whom we met the day before to take us to Suez.
