We stayed in an ocean view Club Laguna room which I recommend- you can eat breakfast, lunch, have afternoon tea and dinner in the club lounge. It is not as crowded as the main dinig room. The food was really delicious, the waiters were extremely kind. The beach is beautiful and Soma Bay is so calm that you can totally... More

We stayed here for 3 days in May. Our sea view room was beautiful and the bathroom stunning. A few times I had to wonder if I was still in Egypt. No cats, no stray dogs, no garbage, the beach was lovely, employees were friendly and helpful! I would stay here again in a heart beat. Loved it!

For a large hotel, this really is a great recommendation by Planet Windsurf, who we traveled with. The 'very good' rating is compared to world wide hotels - for Egyptian hotels this would gain an excellent for sure. What was excellent: Food.

This was a last-minute holiday booked based on recommendations from Trip Advisor travellers. After a very quick journey from Hurghada airport (we think the limousine driver had taken F1 lessons) we arrived to be greeted by the concierge in traditional Egyptian dress. The cooling air-conditioner was a welcome retreat from the blistering heat. We were shown to our beautiful Junior... More
