Just returned from a superb week staying a Citadel Azur.
Location, just 20 mins from airport
Hotel, staff, food & rooms all great. Would recommend contacting hotel in advance of stay & request either block 4,5 or 6. All have sea view however these particular blocks are in a much better location. Food although usual canteen, buffet style, you can also book 24 hours before, Italian, Fish or Brazlian. All of which were good, Italian was our favourite. Hotel also has a lovely coffee shop & lunch served on the marina. Beautiful setting & you can also get to feed the beautiful fish with the odd bread roll!
Predominantly Russian, German & French. Think we may have been the only English couple whilst we were staying here. Didn't bother us as was looking for complete relaxation.
A word of advice if you do plan to use the hotels shuttle bus into Hurghada downtown.
Only 20 mins away but had an awful time with all the locals pestering you to come into the shops. The shuttle bus picks you up 2hours later but we couldn't wait that long & jumped into a cab. Shuttle bus is 5 euros for the return trip.
Great gym if you fancy working out with all the usual equipment.
We have been to various hotels in Egypt but I can honestly say that this is the best hotel we have stayed in & would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break. We definatley be visiting again soon.
