The hexagonal shaped lobby is centered around a slightly raised platform bordered by plants upon which are clusters of tables and chairs themselves around a column which disappears into the lighting fixture. Around the edges of the hall are situated the reception, the guest relations desk, the concierge, the excursions desk and the 24 hour lobby bar. The hotel has two swimming pools each with a kids pool and the main one with a diving pool. Both the main pool and the kids pool at the smaller of the regular pools have slides and each have heaps of space around them with funky pink loungers and blue and white striped parasols. There are no buildings or obstacles blocking the sun from the sun bathing areas of the pools so a whole day's bronzing is guaranteed. The health club, accessed down a pretty grim path, is located at the hotel's sister property the Dreams Vacation. The gym is fairly well equipped while the rest of the modest health club features a standalone jacuzzi, sauna, nicely tiled steam room and four double massage rooms. The sixteen members of the animation team have full programmes for daily activities (stretching, sports, dancing), music (chill out tunes, dancing, sun set beats), the kids (painting, games, mini disco) and night time shows (variety, oriental, traditional Egyptian). During the day there will always be one of the team taking care of the little ones at the Children Paradise Kids Club. There is a whole host of sporting facilities to be taken advantage of at the Dreams Beach Resort with archery, boccia, tennis, table tennis, volleyball, water polo, pool, mini football and mini golf. The kids have their own little playground and there are of course all the diving, snorkelling and water sports you can imagine down at the beach. 15 shops, ranging from fashion to art, from jewellery to spices can be found on the hotel's premises meaning there is ample choice when it comes to taking something back for friends and family. Other services include a clinic, pharmacy and bank. The public areas of the hotel are generally kept nicely and the plants and trees look healthy. The staff were full of smiles and enthusiastic.
