“Fanrtastic Stay & We Will Return In 2014”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

I went to Jungle Aqua Park for the last 2 weeks in November. There was a party of 3 adults.
Flights- We flew with Thomson Airways from Birmingham. Both outbound and return flights were to schedule. The outwards flight was 5hrs and return 6hrs. The only thing I would suggest is Thomson may want to consider adding entertainment to the flight service and consider their onboard bar prices.

Airport Arrival-
On arrival to Hurghada airport, the best thing to do for your visa is to go into the arrivals hall, and turn directly left. There is a bank with 3 cashiers who sell your visas. The Egyptian Embassy advised me before I travelled the visa was $20 US. On arrival we paid the equivalent of $15 US in Egyptian Pounds which worked out at approx £13pp. They accept all currencies and will quote on the rate of the day. You save £2-3pp if you go to the bank.
Once we cleared customs (20 minutes), our cases were already next to the baggage carousel waiting for us. Very quick and we were on our way to the hotel which is approx 20-30 minutes.

Hotel Check-in-
As soon as we arrived we were greeted and took to the Indigo Bar to complete forms and hand passports over. Within 10-15 minutes we received our room card and we found our own room. The hotel staff are keen to take your luggage to the room for you, but we were keen to get unpacked and have a look around the hotel.

Room-
We were allocated room 1008, this was in front of the Aqua Park and we were allocated a ground floor which had its own pool and was in a very good location. There was very little noise from any of the bungalows close to us. Our room slept up to 4. The safe is electronic and free of charge and our room boy provided clean beach towel, water and soft drinks on request. We also asked for mosquito spray and a plug in as mosquitoes at night were out in their element.

Food-
The hotel has a number of restaurants ranging from English, German, Italian, Asian (currently being renovated but Asian was available just outside the restaurant) and a cake shop (Again being renovated). There is also an ice cream shop. Restaurants are open at different times of the day due to hotel occupancy. In the morning it was continental type breakfast and eggs cooked to your liking as well as limited meat products.
The pizzas that are made on request in the Mediterranean and in Italian for lunch/dinner are a must.

Drink-
There is a wide selection of soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, coffees and teas available. Service in all of the bars is good and we spent each night in the Jazz bar and we were very well looked after. The staff get to know you and your usual drinks and get these for you on arrival.

Aqua Park/Pool Areas-
Open from 10am-5pm daily. As we went in November there were never any queues. Beware around the pool areas; as much as the attendants mop up the pool water, it is VERY slippery. The pool outside the Mediterranean restaurant was the only pool that was heated during our stay as well as the pools in the Aqua Park.

Things To Consider/Beware of-
1. The locals will do what they can to gain money/backhanders. On our return we weighed our cases before checking in and they were underweight. When we went to our check in desk, the gent checking us in informed us our cases were overweight. In fact a holdall belonging to the previous customers was still on the belt which made our cases seem like they were heavier, we argued this and he held his hand open as a gesture to pay him and he would let us off! We politely said no and walked away.
2. Mosquitoes are rife, ensure you take plenty of repellent and remember to ask the room attendant for spray/plug ins regularly. They seem to bite at night when you are out and come up blotchy in the morning. Some guests were paying £150+ a time for injections/antibiotics, so be prepared.
3. When dining in the evenings, have a good look round all of the restaurants, you won’t be disappointed, then decide what you want. Most nights we took a plate round them all and had a bit of most things. Also talk to Cliff the British head waiter who kindly kept roast duck for me one evening. He is very keen to hear your feedback and works very hard with his chefs.
4. The shops on the complex can be a nightmare. The picture shop in particular. Prices for all of the goods are less than half at the airport or locally in Hurghada, I suggest going to the Senzo Mall which is a 10 minute walk or offering at least half price. They are VERY persistent.
5. Again another thing that got our back ups was the sellers that came round the poolside when you are relaxing. This was to sell spa treatments, excursions or to take your ear phones out to get you to join in the entertainment. This was consistent for 2 weeks.
6. All in all we had a great 2 weeks and I am already looking to book for 2014. Enjoy!

My friend and I came here for 2 weeks. We got a brilliant price for it. The hotel is soo good especially the aqua park. This hotel is perfect for families, theres plenty for everyone to do. All thr staff are very helpful. The evening entertainment is good. Although it's quiet far from everywhere else, for peoole who like clubbing, definitely go to the white beach. Its awesome. Overall such a good holiday, I would reccomend it to anyone. One last thing, the entertainment team are ine top form :)

We have just returned from one weeks holiday in Egypt. We had a brilliant time, the hotel was superb, the staff could not do enough for you, the food was plentiful and the chefs willing to cook whatever you wanted, they could not do enough to make our holiday enjoyable. From the cleaning staff to the waiters, to the bell boys, to the reception staff we did not come across a single person who was rude or unhelpful. They just wanted to please and worked hard at it.
We did venture off the resort and the Eqyptian people just wanted to talk with us as they have seen very little of the English this year.
They are hurting as tourism is down because of the sensational news reporting but we did not see any trouble and felt safe at all times. You have to bear in mind that the trouble is in Cairo
and from where we were this equates roughly to the the distance between London and Paris!
We will definitely book this resort/hotel again.

We went there during Eid holiday in October...and needless to say we had a ball. The resort is HUGE, and there is a bit of the ginormous pool in front of each family room, which was extremely convenient. The staff were so accommodating when they saw we had 2 young children and gave us a family room in front of the play area, so the kids could easily play in front of us. The aqua park was so much fun. The area for the youngsters was very convenient with a lot of different slides to keep them busy the 5 days we were there. The adult section of the aqua park allows us older people to live our inner childhood...incredible fun. I personally took my 7 year old son and went on almost every single slide at least twice a day! It definitely takes you back many years! There are many restaurants there but the food was a bit redundant....but there were drinks and snacks available all day...so it was fine. I absolutely recommend this place to everyone! We will definitely be back!

First impressions en-route to the holiday complex, you would be forgiven for wondering what have you done booking this holiday. The open minded will probably expect to see un-finished buildings and a strange road manner adopted by the locals in this part of the world however, eitherway do not be put off. Once at the hotel the booking in procedure was slick and we received a warm welcome with all baggage taken care of and brought to your rooms.
It was early evening when we arrived and found the complex surprisingly quiet and an amazing sense of calm filled the soul. Pools were well laid out as was the accomodation, which was clean and in good order. The entire site was constantly being cleaned and gardens maintained. Food was reasonable and plentiful but due to low numbers of guests variation was at times disappointing. Kids and active Adults will love the Aqua Park, highly reccommended. Excursions with Thomsons were not a highlight for us after being left off manifest and forgotten. Desert Safari is also not how you would imagine following a great sales pitch. Skytours (Not Thomson Skytours) Snorkelling and Diving brilliant. Marina in Hurghada, a short and cheap Taxi ride away is a must for something to eat and drink. Overall a great holiday, great weather, staff and Egyptian people friendly and helpful, remember the tipping culture here and you won't go wrong (Tip: Take $1 USD Bills - Dont use English Pound coins, they can't change them up), but only tip for good service. We will be going back I hope next year.

Room Tip: If you have young Children you must get a groundfloor bungalow. That way you can just sit on your pa...

We have been to this hotel two years running and had a fantastic time both times.
The bungalow styled rooms have ample space and are perfect for a family of four and just outside every room there is a pool so it's easy to slip out of bed and into the pool. The entertainment is quite good too. The food is of a good quality but is quite limited, having said this there is more than enough choice for you to have something different every day. The slides are an absolute must, they are so much fun! The sun loungers around he pool are thickly padded and really comortable. the staff are all very friendly and they love the English people. If you want to go out you can get a taxi for about 50 Egyptian pounds that's about £5.00 and get them to take you to the new marina it's exotic and lively with some lovely restaurants and bars on the waterfront and has a good English bar called H R G Papas which also sows the premiership football. There is also memsham street which is a modern shopping centre with bars and restaurants as well. But or a 10 minute walk from the hotel there is a new shopping mall with a massive indoor play centre with machines and rides and play structure. As well as lots of shops bars and restaurants had a lovely meal there one evening. All in all a fab holiday.

Room Tip: The rooms are bungalow style but some have an upper level take this if you can as they do suffer wit...

I remember once reading a review on Trip Advisor where a gentleman reviewer wanted to give 1 star to the place he stayed in even though he absolutely adored it because he said he didn't want others to discover it and find out how good it was so he could have it all to himself, this is how I feel about Jungle Aqua Park! I don't want anyone else to go, it's all mine!! I am actually the 39 year old one of 7 that travelled with Megan B below and she has written the perfect review. There is something for everyone at this hotel. Our older children wanted to go off and do activities which they could with the FANTASTIC animation team and then for my husband and I and the younger ones we could go to a paddle pool, or a quiet pool for a chill. When they say in this complex that they have 21 pools they don't mean small little pools, they mean 21 really good sized pools, we found some with nobody at them where you could be on your own completely if you wanted too! The restaurant area at night is fantastic! I was worried about the various restaurants because whereas I like to try different foods, my youngest are very fussy so I was worried we were going to be eating in different places with me and hubby in different restaurants with different kids! However it is brilliant because the seating area is situated centrally to all restaurants and you can all go and pick your individual choices and come back to the table to eat together, all happy! Fantastic!! There is something to eat for everyone, a great choice from lots of different styles of food! One thing I have to say to the hotel is that your staff are AMAZING! They all work so hard. We met some of the most amazing people ever and for that reason we WILL be back! I have always said I would never return to the same place twice because there are so many good places to explore in the world, but your staff have made me want to return again and again because it felt like home from home. A pleasure and a SINCERE thank you!
