Reading the above reviews I wanted to share my notes on my stay at Mövenpick. I was traveling alone as I had some unexpected time off and was fed up with the European 'Spring'.
The resort is near to the airport and most tour operators drop you of right at the door. Its clear the resort is a bit older as it was recently taken over by Mövenpick and upgraded. That they did well. So everything apart from the rooms is quite new but the rooms are still older. That does not mean the're not up to standards, on the contrary. Rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped.
Swimming pool and outside area are also older but good. Not as fancy as the brand new resorts but, hey, you pay at least a couple of hundreds more for them per week.
Food: I find this important and am a critical eater, that is I eat almost everything but it needs a certain base standard. My opinion: I think they do well! At least they make an effort in trying to have varied dishes, local, European and Russian (loads of Russians -but they are not hindering whatsoever-) Try the local dishes (mostly on Friday) as they taste excellent but I noticed most guests did not even want to try. Good Cous Cous etc.
Breakfast: standard what you expect and plenty.
Lunch: I did not take full board but saw it was ok but nothing more. A bit like the breakfast.
Tip for people on a budget and not full board: Just outside the hotel local shops sell water, Coca Cola (for beer go to the nearest bar and buy from the fridge) for very low prices 50 cents or less for a can..
Apart from this on Hurghada as a village: nothing fancy, no culture. Don't go there for that. Just sun and nice temperatures. But Luxor is near so that hugely compensates!
