Just returned back from holiday in Egypt with our friends,well what can i say,the best holiday i have ever had.We stayed in Hurgarda in a very quiet area called Sahl Hasheesh.We stayed in The Premier Romance Boutique Hotel which was 5 star,adult only,with spa facilities,the best hotel in this area by far.The hotel is small with just 79 rooms,so always seems quiet and relaxing,no hustle and bustle.On arrival we were greeted by the bell man Mostafa what a great guy,he never stops smiling.He took our suitcases from us and escorted us into the bar,sat us down with some cold refreshing drinks while he dealt with the paperwork for check in.This was a first for me as check in usually means queuing up at reception,tied after flight,not what you really want to be doing.Mostafa escorted us to our rooms,delivered our suitcases,quick efficient friendly service.The room was imaculate,it had everything you need,massive bed,big television,with english film channel,tea and coffe,mini bar,sea view,even carpets unusual for hot countries,air con and plenty of hot water that never runs out fantastic.The bar had 2 outstanding gentlemen waiters called Khaled and Mostafa,these lads could not do enough for you,i got told off for taking my empty glasses back to the bar,they accused me of pinching their jobs,so i sat back down and enjoyed their attentive service.These 2 barmen are best mates and we had lots of fun with them.It was Mostafas birthday on one night we were there so we had a make shift birthday cake made up for him in the main restaurant with a candle in the middle.We asked him to join us in the bar and we all sung him happy birthday.He said this has never happened to me before and we could see him welling up but we could tell he was enjoying it.A big thankyou goes to these two for making our holiday alot of fun as we spent a lot of time in the bar.Another 2 gentlemen that gave us great service in the main restaurant were Mahmoud and Romany,these lads never stopped topping up your drinks,aiways smiling,good sence of humour they needed that to put up with us.On the beach we were treated like kings and queens by 2 life guards called Ahmed and Mima,they put our towels on our beds,cleaned our sunglasses,brought our drinks,we did not have to move to get anything,this is the life i thought.We had a fillet steak in the italian restaurant one night, it was a lovely meal and so was the waiter who looked after us his name was Moaurod,hope this is spelt right he gave great service always with a smile thankyou.Not forgetting our cleaner Wael Mohamed he turned our towels into animals,the room was imaculate day after day,he even helped us with our suitcases to the lift,what a guy thankyou.All four in our party had spa treatments and massages at the hotel expensive but worth the treat.Watch out for pushy salesman on beach could be offended by him if your not from yorkshire.Me and my mate john had a great trip out into the desert on quad bikes and finished off with free camel ride highly recommend good fun.Had a boat trip out to a paradise island called Mahmaya,well i thought we were in the saychelles,what a beautiful place,straw huts,crystal clear waters,dolphins,free lunch,bar,proper toilets ,red hot all day what more do you want.This is my first visit to egypt and throughout all my time here i have found staff at my hotel aswell as most of the egyptian people to be very friendly especially towards the english.One day during your holiday you will be invited to a cocktail party in the outside bar.This is where you get to meet and shake hands with the general manager,a great guy called Mohammed Saeed.He was there to introduce himself and ask everybody if they had any problems to solve and to make sure everyone was enjoying their holiday.This i found was a nice touch.This man was seen everyday in the background by me sometimes in suits sometimes casual but always making sure that top quality service was received by everyone.Mohammed probably noticed me and my friends having alot of fun with his staff on a daily basis sometimes too noisy for this hotel,hope he and other holiday makers were not offended.All the staff i have mentioned by name when asked by me,whats it like to work for Mohammed saeed they all said he was good man to work for and they liked him very much.Summing up this holiday,all i and my friends can say is that the hotel,the staff,the boss man,the food,the service,has yet to be beaten by anybody else.The only downside for me,if you can call it a downside,is that i missed my english bacon,not the end of the world is it.A massive thankyou Mohammed to you and your friendly team of staff for making mine and my friends holiday the best. p.s This review is a true reflection of this hotel and holiday ignore any bad reviews and try it for yourself you will not be disapointed.Thankyou again Steve&Jeanette John&Sue Date of stay 23/4/13 to 30/4/13
