“A kids playground”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

About 350 apartments horseshoed around two swimming and a toddler’s pool. Despite its name this is not resort that will appeal to most Brits or western Europeans. The flats consist of a through lounge/kitchen, 1 or 2 bedrooms, toilet/shower and about two thirds have a big enough balcony for sitting out. They are basic but pleasant enough. The compound is full of screaming children until the early hours. If you are lucky they will quieten down by about 3AM. When approached the resort agree it is terrible that this is happening and fail to do anything about it. The brochure offers 4 star deluxe services. Apart from the housekeeping, which we haven’t experienced as we are renting our apartment directly from an owner it is difficult to know what they mean. The resort restaurant/bar is shut down. Periodically they contrive to mange the pools so both are closed at the same time for cleaning. This can last for several days. Every so often our apartment has been without water for a while, on one occasion for 19 hours.

No only are we kept awake by marauding kids but woken by staff at 6am shouting to each other. If you want a cheap place to stay and can cope with the sleep patterns this venue imposes then perhaps it would be OK. We came here to live for a year or so. We are leaving after 3 months and at the time of writing have 2½ weeks left. These remaining days will be long.

Room Tip: higher up at the far end (from the main gate) may be quieter than those on the 1st or 2nd floors nea...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

the complex itself is ok by eruopean standards and the apartments we had was small but clean the pool area is very nice and well looked after.
however step outside and you are then faced with the true face of hurghada its still mainly a building site hundreds of unfinished buildings makes the place look dirty and unfinshed.the area around the british resort is dusty and generaly looks run down next door i think its called dessert pearl passed there there are rows of unfinshed buildings and when the wind blows the dust is terrible.
donnt get me wrong 5 mins down the road theres a nice modern promenade and there are some nice areas of hurghada but just not anough has been done to make the place an area look like a holiday resort.
i was told yes but this is the real egypt that might be true but for a few weeks away
i for one feel that anyone looking at going here should do there homework as i think there are far better choices nowdays far better value.
perhaps thats why there did not seem to be many europeans in the resort

Room Tip: do not have a room that is not pool view please ask first you might be overlooking a dirt road and a...
