Accommodation:Amwaj Blue Beach Resort and Spa Abu Soma
Room:Double Or Twin - Garden View
Board:All Inclusive

Let’s start with the good things about this hotel; the foot print of the hotel is very good, easy to navigate around, situated on the beach, good size rooms with good reception on the TV with five channels in English, a kettle and iron in the room. A nice walk along the jetty to where all the snorkel and dive boats are. There is an ATM in the corner of the reception; exchanging cash gives you a better rate than here in the UK, and for the ladies a good spa.

Now the bad bits: Food the same for lunch and evening meal, always the same, cooked the same, presented the same, under-cooked vegetables, cold potatoes, fish with some type of sauce, chicken carcass and knuckle of wing, beef strips of fat, but given a theme title every day, Far Eastern, Oriental, International, Egyptian etc, with no imagination from the chef. Even in the themed restaurants which have to be booked, Italian, Bedouin and Indian same as the main everyday restaurant or should I say cafeteria. After visiting Egypt over twenty times I can honestly say this hotel has the most bland, poorly presented food I have had in any of the hotels I have stayed in, if you want good food take a trip on a dive boat or go out of the hotel.

In the main reception area is a Taxi booking service but when you have a problem with a driver, the manager of this service just laughs. My advice is to get a phone number from other guests who have found an outside taxi which they have satisfaction with. Unfortunately the hotel is located in an isolated area where you need transport to be able to leave this hotel, walking is not an option.

Kettle in the room: great if you only drink hot water, they don’t give you tea, coffee or milk you have to ask for this, when challenged I was told you’re not entitled to this. So why do they give in your room, a kettle, cups, and sugar, but nothing to make a drink. Nevertheless if you are quick when the room cleaner is cleaning the deluxe or upper-class rooms on his trolley you will find tea and coffee but no milk. Towels in room: at best they have seen better days, on a number of occasions in the first week the towels were no better than cut rags, in the end we took them to the reception only to be told this should not happen, but it does and on a regular occurrence.

Staff: apart from say a dozen who I should say are great assets to this hotel and try their best to give you a pleasant experience. The rest sad to say it’s just a job and you're in the way. In the Italian restaurant they walk round with a face as long as a wet weekend, they will only give service once they come off their phones, or when you have had enough of waiting and get up to serve yourselves or at best when a senior manager walks by, but mainly after you have finished your meal and ready to go, so they come round as if to beg for a tip. Waste management: we all have waste issues and most of us will pick up rubbish and put it in a bin, not here they throw it over the fence out of sight out of mind, so when I approached this with the culprit he looked blank until I insisted he went over the fence and retrieved this and put it in a bin.

Reception and booking in: after a long day travelling and with friends to be told they could not put us in adjacent rooms, but if we upgraded they could. Don't do it. We did and paid $140 for each room for 1 twin and 1 double, next to each other, only to be given 2 twins and four rooms apart, so went back to reception and was told for one twin just push the beds together, and your friend is not that far away from you. Sorry that’s not why we upgraded, but eventually we got what we expected. As the days went by we had other issues and began to question why we had upgraded as the only thing we could see was two pairs of slippers and dressing gowns (don’t get me started on these) extra for our up-grade, only our friend did not get them until we asked, and then only one pair of slippers, “going to bring them to you” still waiting. Talking with others there was little benefit from the upgrade we were offered, except for two small bottles of water per day, observation showed that on every landing there are water dispenses, or fill your bottle up in the restaurant, so upgrading saved us from doing that, $140 to have two bottles a day in the room wow. But you could have the better upgrade at $22 per day which gives you one Wi-Fi card per room or pay £55 for one week’s Wi-Fi per card.

Any problems you have, you take them to reception for them to help and assist, dependant on your problem and who is on duty it may be resolved on the second attempt. Reception gave us good advice, fill out a compliment (yes Compliment not complaint) form and the management will address your issues? Management: so we took the advice and filled out the form outlining good things and listing all the issues we have encountered during the first week of our stay, as this was placed in the box with 7 days remaining of our stay we highlighted that we would welcome a response before we left on the following Saturday. On the Friday before we left we had not seen or spoken to any senior managers, what we did see, or observe, was the general manager leaning against the counter at reception as a tourist who had been travelling all night and day to get there and was resting while being booked in. We approached the reception at 12 noon just before going to lunch, was told the manager wanted to see us after we had lunch, so we come back at 2pm. We were told they would see if a manager was available so we sat and waited. Half hour later a manager came and asked could he help. Told him about the form the previous Saturday which we put in the box and expected a response. He went away and I observed him empty the box. He came back and asked what the issues are. You had not read them have you I asked, he said the general manager reads them. OK get the General Manager I asked, he is busy the manager said, yes I said, dressed in jeans and t-shirt propping up the counter over there and I pointed to him. He went and fetched him. What’s wrong he said and can I help, I asked if we could go somewhere private to discuss the issue, his face was blank at this request? We finally got to his office and I began to outline all the issues, which to my surprise went in one ear and out the other, his blank face never moved throughout, except when his phone rang and a member of his staff came in the room to discuss something with him, my view of him was that he did not give a damn about our issues, we were just a $ or £ sign to him, and an irritant in his day, so as we were to be leaving the next day, “tough”. I left him in no uncertain teams he was not a manager and could not manage, not even in a general format, and that he did not understand the issue we raised or cared. Heard them all before, so what? You’re only here for a short period. He leads by example, with don't care attitude as long as he can lean on the counter and look the part, and so do some of his workforce, thankfully not all share the don't care attitude, they do try to make your stay welcoming.

Just to finish on a good note, later that day when we returned to our room, they had put 2 tea bags and 2 coffees in the room and low and behold in the fridge a litre carton of milk. Would I go back, don't think so unless I get a very good deal for a week’s diving then I would only use the hotel foot print, and on a room only as I have a phone number of a good taxi to take me away from here when I have done my diving.

Absolutely beautiful hotel with excellent staff. Me and my wife loved every minute and will definitely return. We ate in all restaurants and joined in with various activities during the day, there isn't many British holiday makers here but we had no issues.

Buffet food very unimpressive, drinks too strong but if you asked for less spirit they became ok. Hotel clean and staff very helpful. Dive centre was very very good.
