I went for 2 weeks on holiday to the Oriental resort with my family and do not listen to any of the bad reviews as you will truly have a fantastic holiday.
The situation of the hotel could not get much better. You are about 15 minutes away from the airport, 25 minutes from Nama Bay, 30 minutes from Cleopark, an amazing water park which you should consider visiting and an adequate shopping mall is across the road featuring some designer shops, an English bar which shows football and a metro just outside the hotel.
There is no need to complain about the food as you have to respect that it is a completely different culture out there so you are not going to get a beef burger or spaghetti bolognese every night. There is a pasta booth where you can get pasta with tomato or cheese sauce if you don't like anything on the main booth. If you really can not stand to eat the food every night there is a lovely Italian restaurant next door to the reception which is not included in your all inclusive however is quite cheap if you are looking for something a bit different. Also I would throughly recommend to ask about eating on top of the pool bar at night. You may have to ask a few waiters before you finally get to book it however it is well worth it in the end. Basically you have to book the day before and they bring you a menu. You can either get meat including steak, chicken and lamb or fish including lobster, shrimps and seabass and it is paid by, by every 100 grams so you pick as much as you would like. The next day you turn up and you can look at the fish before it is cooked and tell them which bits you want and how you would like it to be cooked then you have a starter with pitta breads, salad and dips. Again this is not included in your all inclusive however is very cheap for the quality you get and you also have to pay for drinks but in return you get treated like royalty all night.
The main pool is for you if you like to be in all the action with music playing all day and activities. Also the pool bar offers ice cream and sandwiches at lunch time. If you then walk through the lovely gardens you come to a second pool which we stayed around for the whole holiday. It is very quiet and you can guarantee that you will not get splashed all the time. This pool has its own pool bar who is served by a lovely man and there is never a huge queue to get a drink. Then a further 2 minuted walk away is the amazing beach. We walked down there at about 4ish in the afternoon everyday and it was beautiful! The sea was like a bath and at the end of the little jetty were lots of fish. Definitely buy snorkels and look for a yellow rope as it leads you to some corral which has the most amazing fish
Would definitely recommend booking a flight to Cairo before you go and booking your own guide as we did this and it turned out a lot cheaper and we had the most amazing day ever. Also if traveling with Thomas Cook, take a trip on the Arabian nights as this is fantastic, Cleopark, and to Tiran island. Also book to go quad biking down at the beach as that was my favourite part of the holiday
