The site is good for access to the beach, but noisy at night if you have a room anywhere near the reception or courtyard area. I would also advise that unless you are going in high season do not bother booking on the website as you can negotiate a better deal if you turn up on spec. However, if you want a hassle free experience, you can arrange everything online, including being picked up by taxi from Sharm airport, which should cost around 25 euro.
Unique Qualities: Jimmy, the proprietor is a proper "Mr Fixit", and can locate you most things, from a good local guide to a charger for your ipod! If you want to get off the beaten track for a few days ask for Samir who is usually over the road at the penguin, and will also arrange everything you could want. There is also a discount on the PADI diving courses for residents of Bishbishi, at penguin divers, who I can also recommend, having a good reputation for safety.
