In general, very nice hotel. They try to keep Kempinski standards. I think that customers over 50 like it very much :) Very good and attentive service.

Really lovely hotel in a great setting on the red sea, with crystal clear water and coral reefs you can walk out to. Hotel staff were great, professional but friendly and brilliant with the kids, rooms were large, well-kitted out and spotless, and the food was really good as was the ambiance of the restaurant. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Writing this a few hours before checkout. The hotel is exceptional in many ways, not just when it comes to customer service and employees, but for guests as well, who are equally friendly and always smiling. If I hadn't know better, I'd say the hotel staff interviews guests beforehand :-) However. The hotel, having German administration, as I've learned, seems...
