Just come back from 1 week staying at the jungle hotel and aqua park. we enjoyed the holiday but there were a few things that were a bit weird.
The pool outside our bungalow was lovely and massive and plenty of sun loungers to go around.
The hotel setting was also nice with lots of grass and shrubs. The animals dotted around the park also kept our 2 year old busy- she loved to climb on the zebras and pretend to feed them.
The water slides at the aqua park kept my 2 year old busy for hours and my husband too! but we found the kids slides at the hotel pool were off.
The jazz bar is the best place for a drink or coffee with friendly staff, and we enjoyed eating at the plant Asia and alfredo restaurants for tea. we mostly went to the club mc burger/pizza place for lunch. Breakfast was rubbish in all the restaurants. Some of the food at breakfast was very weird particularly the 'foull'.
We didn't really bother with the entertainment during the day but our daughter loved the mini disco. We also watched a fire eater who was quite good and a snake show that wasn't.
We visited the beach at dana beach hotel if you plan on going here it's not a bucket and spade kind of place sand is more like car park grit! Hurgada itself looks very run down.
Also my daughter was frightened of the Egyptians that worked in the restaurants. They hiss to get their attention my 2 year old hated this.
Also mosquitos are very bad in Egypt so invest in some good repellent. The guy that cleaned our room made sure we had plenty of fly killer too. spray it when you go out for the evening and by the time you get back they will all be dead.
All in all it was a good holiday. Would we go back? Probably not.
