We stayed for 8 nights at the Mercure Hotel. It was an enjoyable and quiet stay. Occupancy was down due to the 1 month restriction for other countries.
The hotel is about a ten minute ride away from Hurghada airport.
Guests were mainly English, Egyptian with some Russians.
The hotel was clean and spacious. There were a lot of staff, all very friendly. The animation team were great, in particular Marley, as he was always making an effort to say Hi and get people involved.
Food: all inclusive was generally ok. We enjoyed the different theme nights, some were better than others. E.g. Arabian night.
There was a good variety of food considering how low the occupancy was, So it was nice that the kitchen staff were still making a good effort. I particularly enjoyed all the variety of desserts.
With Lunch you had the option of th buffet it food at the poolside, which Included fries or pizza. There was also ice cream.
Soft drinks were unlimited.
The pool was nice, but probably on the smaller side. There is also a lovely private beach.
A negative was that you did get approached quite a few times with the beauty centre rep and the water sports/activity guy.
Another negative was that you could only get free wifi in the reception, which was very slow.
Overall, the staff are helpful and friendly and we had an enjoyable stay. We felt very safe and it is a shame that the tourism in Hurghada has been affected so much.
