It supposed to be a 4 star hotel, but it's definitely not. Rather 3 and considering constant lack of water and level of reception service even 2.
The only really nice thing was the temperature of water in the swimming pool, but I guess it's normal in Egypt.
Rooms were clean, equipped in a flat screen TV and a free safe box.
The bad things now.
Almost every evening we didn't have hot water, some rooms didn’t have water at all.
Food was OK, one day good, another day just edible. Restaurant tables were not cleaned quickly; to eat you had to remove plates after somebody else by yourself and sit by the dirty table. Once I saw a roach in there.
I didn't like the service, they had stupid jokes e.g. pretending that they spill coffee over you or serving only a spoonful of food pretending that you will not get more.
After 6 you couldn't have a drink, even water (they wouldn't give it to you one minute to 6 even if you begged) and the swimming pool was closed.
One day we had a very unpleasant event. We were waken up by a phonecall - rude receptionist shouted that the manager wanted to see us, he sounded like we would have done something wrong. It turned out later that they accused us of breaking the TV.
I was appalled by such rude behaviour and requested the apologies. I never found out what it was about because the TV was working normally. They might have confused the rooms or what. Anyway, we were never apologised.
I do not recommend the hotel. From tourists in other hotels I know that they were more satisfied.

Room Tip: The east views ara probably the best but then you have street noise. Construction sites all around...

From the first point of view, it doesn't look like you will be satisfied with this hotel. Especially because the criteria for hotels in Egypt and everywhere else, are totally different. It is surrounded by big constructions which are not finished, but placed in the best place for vacation, which is very important for Hurghada. It is quite place in the middle of city, between the old and traditional area (where is always big crowd, jam, a lot of people trying to sell sth) and modern but expensive part of Hurgada (which is not interesting as well). So, hotel is well positioned. It has very good beach, 50 meter from the hotel, and the best animator all around the world :) (Tito). Food is as everywhere in Egypt, with lot of unknown spices but good. Hotel is clean and staff is very polite. After all, when you realized that every hotel in Egypt is not as well as it looks like in advertisement, you will be very satisfied with this hotel. Not exclusive, but clean and interesting. I recommend it.

Hotel has 3 stars, but from my opinion it deserves more, especially by Egyptian standards. Service was OK. Room was cleaned every day with new towels. For bedding it was changed but not every day.
Room was very nice, clean, with LCD TV, safe box. Toilet is big, clean, with big tub, hair drier. Only complaint that there is not terrace ,but rooms in some part of hotels have terrace.
Location is very good. To new downtown Memsha distance is 10 minutes on foot. To old downtown Sakala you can go with taxi for 5 Egyptian Pounds (0,6 euro), to beautiful new Marina fr 10 pounds (1,2 euro).
Food in hotel is OK, but every day is almost same. After 7,8 days I skiped lunch or dinner and ate in some restaurants or McDonald's.
All inclusive contains of drinks in plastic glasses (Coca Cola, Sprite, Fanta, domestic beer, vodka, rum) on beach bar and on the pool. During dinner and lunch you can also drink domestic drinks in glasses. Also there is two times a day snack on the pool, bu it is very decent.
There are two pools medium size. In one of them is bar (all inclusive).
Beach is more than OK. You get new towels every day. There are deck chair with big umbrella on beach and on the pontoon. Animation is similar every day. It contains of yoga, sketching, aquabik, picado, belly dance, volley ball and it last about 1 hour. The rest of day you enjoy in listening music (which is same every day) and sunbathing.
In hotel lobby there is free Wi-Fi medium speed.

Room Tip: If you can chose pick rooms with terrace and with look on the pool, because if room has look on the...

have to cross the main road to get the "private beach" were locals go in there aswell, no food on the beach, the food is the same everyday, theres no animation, and after 6 you cant get a drink in the hotel you have to go outside on the main street to a pub to get a drink, only till 10:00pm then you have to pay. the pools very unsafe for children.

The service is poor.
The food is bad.
The beach is small and poor.
All inclusive is very bad. No food on the beach and drink is served in tiny plastic cups. All uses only one bar in the hotel and up to 19h.
There is no entertainment at the hotel.
Only the rooms are excellent.
Believe me!
