...... neither have I been on an All Inclusive basis.
I found everything I could want here at ROSensesResort. We arrived at about 8pm - too late to have made a reservation for Mo's Restaurant. However, Kareem, on reception, advised us to ask for Mr Assad and explain that we had just arrived. On arrival at the restaurant Mayada asked for our room number and then explained, very nicely, that it was necessary to make a reservation. This was soon sorted out and we had a very nice meal.
This was a lazy holiday for us, we went, only, for the sun - food - drink and a rest. However if you want more action I am sure you will be well catered for with a sports gym with running machines, swimming pools too numerous for me to count, snorkelling and a diving "club".
The most memorable part of the holiday, for me, was the friendliness and profesionalism of all of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble.
I want to mention a few people who stood out, for me, as making the holiday "special:
There was Assad who is responsible for all of the restaurants in the Senses part of Reef Oasis, though I met him mainly in Mo's. Also in Mo's we receved very attentive service from Besan and Mayada.
In the Patio Bar there was Nader who was always keeping a watchful eye for empty glasses or plates. If you weren't quick enough to stop him there would be refills almost before you had finished your glass!
Saher is always quick to check if there is anything that you need, he can be found in the Lobby Bar and the Cactus Bar along with Mena.
Mahmoud was outstanding in our Room Service, always a nice little touch with our Bath Towels in the shape of swans, lotus flowers or crocodiles. And a sprinkling of Hibiscus petals and Basil leaves to give the room a noticeable freshness.
I almost forgot, how could I do that? The towel and sunbed service around our pools! How would we have managed without Osama and Ahmed? Always checking that we were comfortable... "would you like me to put up the umbrella to protect you from the sun?" "I'll bring you fresh towels". Always wearing a huge smile.
So to sum up; The Senses Resort was a great success for us. The food was of a very good quality. The drinks were plentiful, though the quality of these could be improved. These service was excellent. I am sure that we will be going back next year, Insha'Allah.
Now, my big complaint. It is nice to tip all of our friends who give good service. However, I was able to get only LE 100 ( £10) notes from my travel agent in England so I had no "small change" for tips. ( Hint: Take a bagful of £1 coins with you!) When I took money from an ATM in Egypt the notes I received were LE 100 or LE 200, i.e. approximately £10 or £20. I think that the management could make life easier for their guests by having a supply of smaller notes in the reception area to exchange the large notes. Take heed somebody!!!
