“4 stars?! That's a laugh!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

Who evaluate this hotel for 4 stars? It's simple 3star!
What ever room you book, it will noisy: pool view rooms - by day, street view rooms - by night!
The stuffs are the world best misters "NO". Need to change the room - they will propose the worse then yours (means NO), need an iron - NO, etc.
I had change two rooms and everywhere was not hot water on default - I've got it after several hours and special request to stuffs.
Food - you will not be hungry, but there a lot of burnt dish. Do not take too much if your stomach is not so strong!

Room Tip: Find another place! OK if you already book it - you have to stay at E building (even D). Just stay...

Will just make a list:

-No sleep because of the next door disco.

-Same all inclusive taste nothing buffet food every day.

-Diarrhea.. everybody got it and some got the bonus plan. Fever and vomiting!

-Small beach, dirty water. Tampons and diaper surprise when snorkeling.

-Hotel staff. Unfriendly and rarely answers to a hello.

-The Hurghada shopkeepers..brrrr.. made you stay in or take a cab where ever you needed
to go.

I'm writing this meanwhile we're staying in this"place"..so i'll not forget this nightmare!..
BROKEN!.
Everything is broken and decadent giving you a feeling that since it was builded (i suppose in the 80'..)it was never been refreshed or repaired..Broken lights,pool stairs,pool beds,ceramics,air conditioned in room,internet connection (I'm using a local sim card..) and so on..
DIRTY!..
Dirty swimmingpool torbid water with a 2mm film of grease or something else in the wall around the water,plastic glasses and straws in the water,sigarettes filters everywhere,soft drinks sticky drops traces also everywhere and so on..
And the beauty is that nobody of the hotel personnel gives a [...]!..
Sticky fingerprints everywhere..from the,so called,"restaurant" to the really badsmell toilettes..
ARABS guest screaming nonstop in the pool area and..nobody gives a s...
Don't come here!!!..

Excellent lodging and entertainment in hotel Bella Vista.The hotel is in a superb location.
Nice and clean hotel with large rooms.The rooms are clean.food was ok.
Staff regularly changing towels.beach and sea are beautiful.like a fairytale :-)
It is important to say the beach is within the hotel.does not need to go across the street.
This is a great advantage.We spent eight memorable and beautiful 8 day in Hurghada.We went to the hotel disco.
We want to get in bella vista.really nice and unforgettable experience.climate in Egypt is excellent.Hotel Bella Vista I recommend.
there is all super. animators little boring.

I recommend this hotel to everyone! Me and my boyfriend were there from January 23 till January 31.
I will start with the things that bothered us a little bit: 1) the pool is not heated, so during winter it is cold, 2) some rooms are located next to a disco club or near the kitchen and they are noisy - we got a room near the kitchen and with two separate beds - when we asked, they changed it for us ( so don't be afraid to ask!!) 3) if you are interested in entertainment then it wasn't so good either. But the animators aren't too intrusive.4) my boyfriend didn't like the fact that the billiard bar was not working and the equipment was in a very bad state.
These were the only downsides - people are different, some say these downsides are unforgivable, but you have to remember that this is Egypt!! If you don't like it, book a hotel in El Gouna.
Sure, there were russians also - but I would like to see a hotel, where there isn't russians! And to let this fact ruin your vacation is just sad.
We were there with the all inclusive packet and we were really pleased. Maybe the breakfast was a little bit repetitive, but there was plenty of food for everybody. Between the meals they served snacks and 4 PM they served pasta by the poolside. The lobby bar, pool bar and the bar near the beach served alcoholic beverages from 11AM till 11PM - and they were really good. The bartenders made us different colorful coctails whenever we wanted to.
The rooms were THOROUGHLY cleaned every day - they changed our towels and sheets daily, even the balcony was cleaned, our belongings, which were on the table etc. were placed nicely in order and when we left a little bit money for the cleaning guy, he perfumed the room a little.
And since it is in the centre, all the shops and restaurants were near the hotel.
I was really happy and I would go back in there next time as well!

Bella Vista is a small comfortable hotel.
Hotel has all included services (breakfast, half-board, all unclusive).
Guests are international mostly from Germany, Sweden, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia etc.
The location of Bella Vista is excellent! It situated on the main street of Hurghada - Sheraton Road (10 minutes from the airport by taxi). There are many shops, restaurants, banks, disco, diving centers etc.
The beach of the hotel is in the vicinity of the building.
The hotel has very good animation team from Hungary. Animators organize a lot of fun activities - morning gymnastics, aquagym, volleyball, darts, petanque, belly dance course, water polo etc.
Every day, guests can watch and take part in evening shows.
We express our BIG THANKS to Brigitte, Roland, Bence and Annamaria for a great vacation!

Bella Vista is my favorite hotel in Hurghada, I stay here 3-rd time.
It has a small size, but there is all that I needed for the great holiday. Sea, pool, restraunts, banks, shops, diving centers etc. are located very close, I spend 1-3 minutes to reach any of them.
The quality of service is higher than in many other 5* hotels. There was not a problem that Administration would not solve. Staff is friendly and cleans the room every day.
Dishes from Main restaurant are good, but Bella Vista's Italic restaurant "La Luna" has it just excellent! I dined there every day - there's very-very nice!
And especially great thanks to new Animation team - Brigitte, Roland, Bence, Ramy and Annamaria! 6 days a week they work with guests 3 times a day.
- Morning: dance “Opa-Opa”’, gymnastic, volleyball, darts, watergym,
- Evening: some dances, belly dance, darts, petanque, volleyball,
- Nigth: different shows.
This team is very friendly and pleasant, thanks!
But Bella Vista has slight imperfections.
1. There is night disco near the west side of Bella Vista and sounds were quite loud, even at 1 am. It is not good for older people who can not sleep in Bella Vista because of this.
2. Wi-Fi internet didn’t work even on the reception (I hope, it was temporary problem).
3. And it would be good to add more sand to the volleyball area. Now it is very hard and danger for feets.
But this negatives no changes my mind. I love this hotel and on the next year I necessarily come back to Bella Vista.
