Exceptionnel

Sans doute un des plus grands hôtels au monde. Deuxième séjour en 6 mois, nous en revenons éblouis et n'attendons que la prochaine occasion d'y retourner. Et inutile de préciser que malgré les articles de presse, l'Egypte est un pays tranquille et sans aucun danger. Et la population merveilleusement accueillante, d'une rare qualité hospitalière.
