Our first trip to Egypt was a wonderful adventure thanks to quality of the hotel and service. Special thanks to 'Italiano Animazione' for entertaining us every day. You can't be bored with this team: Magdalena, Vanessa and Simona. Absolutely fantastic! Thank you! On the behalf of Mrs 'Tomorrow'

We've just finished an incredible week in Crowne Plaza Sahara Sands hotel in Port Ghalib. Everything was perfect and I must admit I was a little bit worried reading some of the comments. Crowne Plaza is in the same property as the Intercontinental. While the Intercontinental is more classy, Crowne is more family oriented, more casual and set back. Yet... More

This is the second time, we spent our holiday here. It is an elegant hotel in oriental style. The food is excellent. The pools and the beach are beautifull. The staff is polite and effective if we asked for something. I think we will go back several times.

This resort is the worst I've ever stayed in. I stayed there for five nights. There is absolutely nothing to do at night. The restaurant is atrocious. Nothing is edible and the quality is horrible. The staff are unresponsive. I asked for an extra cover three times. They never responded to my request.
