Obviously I had read all the reviews on here before I went , so was expecting it to be good, but this good!!!! To be honest it exceeded my expectations, in all areas . We had booked directly through the hotel and the email contact was great and we were able to pre book airport transfers and a sunset felucca experience before hand . The pick up was great and was 30 USD per way for a private transfer , my tip just do it ( you won't be dissapointed) , the check in and baggage to the room was done quickly and without any worries , we were relaxed straightaway . The room was clean and modern , we had a large balcony with a view of the Nile only about 25m from the edge. The room had comfortable bed linen which meant a great nights sleep and the bathroom was adequately sized and well lit with all complimentary toiletries , and the shower was large and walk in with hot water always with no temperature dropping off if you fancied a longer soak !
The pool area was superb with a lovely warm pool and semi submerged sunbeds too , there were plenty of sunbeds with no early morning dash needed to reserve a good one and the pool staff were really attentive , they would place 2 towels on the bed and you didn't lift a finger , they came round with complimentary fruit kebabs and ice cream every day , the drinks service was also as efficient , no need to get up they were always looking out to serve .
We had booked breakfast only and this was served in the Rosetta which is the buffet restaurant , however this isn't like your average buffet restaurant it was unbelievable , it felt like a a la carte restaurant except having to look around the perfectly presented food on display and the quality was extremely high . I think this was the thing that impressed me most about the hotel , that they had gone to such lengths to provide this very high standard , we did eat at Silk Road and Olives and they were also very good but we thought that Rosetta was above our expectations .
We had booked a sunset felucca ride before we arrived and had a fantastic time on a sail of about 90 mins which had a large platter of canapés included , we ordered a bottle of wine and Ahmed accompanied us and kept topping up our glasses as we sat back and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of sailing along , I would recommend this experience and it was reasonably priced . We actually met Christoph at the cocktail party after our felucca ride and it seems that he is an inspirational and passionate man who leads an excellent team with their only desire to be offering their guests the very best and I have to say that he is certainly achieving this , every member of staff we came into contact was excellent in their service , friendliness and professionalism , we arrived knowing that it would be good but left totally wowed with our expectations more than exceeded
