“A hotel with a poor performance and an almost perfect sandy beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Pros:
- the beach (definitely).
A huge beach which span is about 1500m. The left side of the beach's sandy, the right's shingle. A rocky strip in the water along the beach ( you will need a pair of a rubber shoes for swimming) but there are 2 comfortable (smooth and sandy) entrances to the water, perfect for the kids. You got to go about 100 meters to get to the depth. A plenty of small fishes, sometimes jellyfishes and skates. The beachboys are trying hard to make you feel good but still there's enough plastic litter(especially on the right side of the beach!!) to say the beach is untidy. The lack of sunbeds and tents so you won't find a place to lay if you come after 10AM. A strong nice wind. Some activities with animators: aqua gym, volleybal, bocha. The working language is russian.
- infrastructure
You may use all pools, all cafes(you may go there an hour before i'ts closed) and bares.

Contras:
- Room.
Equipped with the most necessary stuff: a good climate-control, an old tv-set and a non-working remote control, a minibar (filled with the bottles of water for wich day you stay in a hotel and a bottle of coke) a fan, which was old and broken, sticked allover with a tape, it looked enough scary to be afraid to use it.
Old and ordinary egyptian furniture.
Everyday cleaning.
- Food.
"+"More then Enough vegetables( different salads: romen, iceberg, arugula; pepper, cucumbers, sometimes tomatoes, oils,vinegars,sauces). Fruits: oranges, bananas, always melon or watermelon. A paradisiacal outstanding bakery.
"-"Almost no meat, fish or chicken. They almost cook nothing infront of your eyes. Just Meet which is in the food court flavored with hot sauces. A powder soups that are not even tasty. A food court area staff gives not more then a 3 slices of a cheese and a sausage per person. Difficult to find a served with a knife and a folk table.
- other annoyances:
Fire alarm. The fire alarm was ringing for 3 times during my stay(a week). The alarm sound was totally ignored by the stuff. Why it was ringing and what has happened is still a good question.

Stuff. The stuff (like in a bigger part of egyptian hotels,but still there some hotels in egypt where you won't be bothered by the stuff!) is not disciplined at all. They starring at you, say something when you are walking, when you order a drink( on arabic, as I guess something obscene!). And even picture you with no allowance!! I do not reccomend The hotel for women alone or just ignore them and dont be afraid to be rude enough to make them understand you are not interested in their attention.

Difficult to classify:
- territory. Huge(it won't be boring to walk in the evenings), but poorly maintained in some parts of the hotel: a damaged tile, wilted grass, palms and flovers, broken status of old golden lions... An awfull smell of wastes in some parts.
- water slides with a big pool. 5 or 6 slides. Work from 9-12am, 1(or2) -4pm; Not overcrowded.
- tourists. Families with small kids almost exclusively Russians (from villages or a very small cities; calm, not noisy,not drunk, occupied with their children) and Muslims. A very small amount of Germans and Czech.
-"dancing fountains". Even the kids who stayed in the hotel weren't neither surprised nor impressed.

I'm very sorry but Its Definitely not a 4 star hotel( even for Egypt!). 3 points in a review just for the sandy beach. Just a tolerably hotel.

If there was no food problems, I would recommend the hotel for couples with kids(0-15y.o) because of the sandy beach, the huge territory, the water slides.
I definitely do not recommend the hotel for all other categories of tourists.

Stayed alone, 23-30 may 2013.

Room Tip: It's a very comfortable place to sleep. Ask for a room on the second floor with a view on founta...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This hotel definitely recommend it, especially because of great services provided, ingenious food and great beach notionally divided into two parts, and the coral and sand, or access to the sea smooth.

Bautiful and clean rooms. We lived in a part of the pool with a gorgeous little teraskou and overlooking the pool. Thus, parents have the opportunity to control their children. Routine hygiene measures, changing towels, toilet paper only to trebalo I think once noted that is especially important if a person gets revenge Pharaoh :)

the food - One word BOMB. Everything you can think of where you are. From fruits, vegetables, cakes, sweets, rice, milk, meat and bread. Beautiful watermelon cutout sculptures, everything neat. The impression can only spoil smoky Russians who ever someone points out, but they are everywhere and the quality of the hotel has nothing to do.

The staff of hotel
Willing, no problems, everything can be arranged. I need to pick up a great park in the hotel grounds, which were also made available without the All Inclusive guests. Towels and chairs were.


Beautiful beach. As I mentioned, on the one hand, there are beautiful coral where you can snorkel, there recommend shoes into the water, but on the other hand, there is a nice sandy entrance to the sea. At low tide on one side you can watch the cute little starfish. :)

The overall impression
Beautiful and brilliant. I would definitely come back there anytime. :)

Room Tip: Standard rooms, ask for the one with view to fountain!

I made a reservation from internet but when ı arrive to Hurghada nobody knew the hotel because the name was different then from internet. There are complex for 5 hotels and we stayed at the last one. The air contidition was not workingand mechanic came to fix it. It worked in 2 hoursa nd then went down. It happened every night. The service were good , the food are not bad. The dirinks service are really good enough except the plastic glasses.
