It doesn't deserve 5 stars. Very nice interiors that were made poorly. The electrical outlets are sideways in the lobby exposing the wiring behind them. The nice chairs have stains and cigarette holes. When we arrived, they did not have our reservation and could not let us check in until someone from the head office confirmed it and we booked this hotel days before. I'm not sure what took more than two days to confirm this. My wife's I-phone copy of the reservation was not enough, so she had to go in the manager's office and forward them the reservation from her email because the internet access in the lobby cost money. This took 30 minutes. The food was not good. There is chicken on the barbeque everyday for lunch and they put what is leftover in a dish for dinner and add some kind of sauce to it. The fish was cold and uncooked. Sometimes the soup was cold. The rice was burned. The ice cream that is supposed to be available as a snack was never available. The pool bar was supposed to have pizza, but I am allergic to cheese and my wife doesn't like tomato sauce, but this pizza is pre made, so we were unable to take advantage of this. The room was full of mosquitos. The wife got bit over 20 times. We had laundry done for a promotional price of something like $16. This was cheaper than the normal paying by the item. We were having a romantic moment in the room when we got a phone call saying the laundry was done. I told them we would pick it up at dinner time. Minutes later, a man knocked on our door. My wife answered the door in a towel only. Five minutes later, we received another knock ruining our moment. Another hotel worker wanted to give us bottles of water, but I think this would be the first white girl he saw in a towel and the whole hotel was alerted looking for excuses to get a peak at her. These bottles should have been delivered when the room was being cleaned and this man actually opened the door with his room key before we had a chance to answer it. After looking through our laundry items, she had a nice lingerie set that was no longer pink and was now grey color. A T-shirt was no longer cream and was grey. Someone in the laundry room now has a pair of her underwear for a souvenir and never returned. We contacted management and they said "what do you want us to do?" It is their job to find a solution to this problem. These things happen in hotels, but certainly not in 5 star hotels. When we wanted to use the internet, we had to wait for the cashier, who was not available at all times. When we went to the lobby bar and wanted wine, the staff had to go to restaurant to get wine and put it in a water bottle before returning to give you a glass of wine 15 minutes later. The rum was cheap and watered down and it was very hard to get drunk. Our hotel was not on the beach and we had to take a shuttle there. The road to the beach was dirty and he parked in a muddy car park. The hotel shuttle door did not open from the inside and was very small. I'm not sure how it shuttles people in peak season with only fitting 7 people in the shuttle. When we asked for a cocktail on the beach bar, he grabbed a glass out of the fridge that already had some liquid in it. He dumped the liquid out and poured our drink in that glass.

Flug über altbekannte mediterrane Reiseziel mit Erinnerungen an alte Zeiten:
- Tauern, Cres-Mali Losinj, Krk, Mlijet-Korcula (Luz), Dubrovnik, Korfu, Peloponnes.
Europe is beautiful - at least from above and under sunny conditions.
We have left Europe and have transpassed the first time zone East.
... are close walk, but dunes are not as high, but hey, we all know what we are doing! Despite losing EFI and another stage (which honesty I have no chance in winning but was second yesterday) am in a good mood, and ready for tomorrow, a short 84km ride to Safaga, where we have access to showers and hopefully wifi! Another lesson learnt, don't camp so close to camp! Noisy and busy! But coming up to 7 so should die down ...
... Red Sea! Remarkable! So lovely to see. Reminds me of the East Coast. We stop to take some pictures, and poor Karen and I get hounded by people (from the back of the police truck) for pictures. Luckily Mike and Dave help save us. But one guy is persistent, they really do like fat blondes here I quickly learn. Off we race, the sea, mountains and the road. So lovely. First Coke stop at 42km, mmm ...
... have an underwater camera and have not had great luck with the disposable ones in past experience I have no pictures from the snorkeling. After snorkel time is over we head back to the beach for a great Egyptian buffet which we share with a couple from Durham England. The next couple of hours is spent relaxing on the beach and swimming in the red sea, can't ...
... isle of sphinx. Here is where we said good bye to our leader Ahmed and most of our group although two are heading to the Hurghada resort area as well and we will make the 3 1/2 hour drive together.
We have arrived in Hurghada and have been upgraded to the Sonesta Pharoah hotel. It is huge and very busy with Russian tourists would have actually preferred something a little quieter and smaller but it is beautiful. Ready for a good nights ...
