Went half term week and booked 3 days before we went. Bhx-zur-cai-ssh took a while £430/each but kids enjoyed trams in Zurich. Hotel and transfer v cheap less than £450 AI for family of 5 in family room. Room basic but fine. We normally are very active on self-organised holidays but just crashed for the first 3 days and enjoyed the aqua park, food and drink. We thought the food was excellent quality and variety considering it's basically trough eating for the masses! The langoustines, BBQ steaks, curries were highlights for us adults whilst the kids feasted on pizza, burgers, chips and beans. Us adults soon adopted a taste for the Eqyptian beer and wines. The sister hotel (beach albatross) had the beach but this was not particularly attractive and we only went once. We discovered excellent snorkeling at Fanara beach (15 minutes walk, turn left out of aqua blu and keep walking. Look for jetties on google maps and you are there). cover charge to use beach was initially 20 euros each but we "negotiated" a more acceptable (and unofficially) £10 for the family. I am a scuba diver (before kids anyway) and have dived from Dahab and Hurghada in the past and I was delighted to introduce my kids (13, 8 and 7) to such high quality underwater delights.
old Market is a short taxi ride away or a 20/25 minute walk. Enjoy the banter and remain polite. My kids wanted to go back night after night to buy souvenirs and fashion items.
We can't wait to go back
