We have recently been to this resort (Nov 2011)
pluses: great staff, quite honest. Left my wallet in the room when it was changed with nearly £1000 cash, which was duly returned.
Room was cleaned everyday very nicely and infact cleaning was on continuously at all times. They take good care and would suggest a small tip at the cery beginning which does wonders.
The pools are clean and great slides though most of the big ones are for children over 10 so my 4 year old was a bit disappointed though there are some great pools for kids his age as well.
Reasonable selection of food at all times Enjoyed the Egyptian fare the most. We had some lovely Milanese grilled fish the last day which ws out of this world. My wife is quite a finnicky eater and even she was able to find something reasonable everyday. The pool side bars are basic and found the burgers etc pretty pedestrian, though the shawarmas were ok. The beach restaurant was a bit better though I found some of the food a bit gritty ( it was a bit windy then to be fair)
The local alcohol which is served as a part of the all inclusive is not bad at all. The lager was quite nice and crisp, and the red wine was quite palatable as well. The spirits weren't premium brands were reasonable. The measures were generous though the glasses werent. Plenty of tea and coffee all the time.
Ambience was generally pleasant and quite family friendly. Evening entertainment wasn't something we stayed for much.
Excusrions: we organised all our excursions through the hotel desks - desert safari ( £30), Luxor 1000 Le in a.taxi) submarine (500 Le). You must bargain with these chaps. The safari is really good value for money, I would suggest taking the coach trip to Luxor even if it takes more time its less expensive as they include all ticket ps in the price. Also the taxi drivers drive like maniacs.
Overall service etc was pretty good.
There was no segregated smoking area in the lobby which is not good specially with small children, lots of second hand smoke in that area.
I would have appreciated Egyptian food everyday with a greater variety of Grills, but I guess most people may not be as Adventorous. I would suggest a restaurant in Hurghada downtown called the Gad which was awsome, a real carnivore carnival.
The pools could be warmer as well.
I would highly recommend this hotel. I think it is probably the better ones in Hurghada as I found out from my enquiries there.
