“Fantastic holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Excellent from start to finish. Lovely welcome and send off from all staff. Free upgrade, excellent accommodation, fabulous food with a good variety of restaurants to suit everyone's taste.. Management would bring cocktails and nibbles onto beach area every morning where they would introduce themselves and ask for feed back which they truly wished to hear good or bad, although I couldn't think how anyone could complain. This holiday was perfect, first time to Egypt and we have book to go back for two weeks next year. The weather was fantastic. The sea so clear, fish amazing and a even a sea turtle to swim with. Husband done a taster dive in the lagoon of the hotel with the dive centre on site and they were brilliant £30 for over an hours one to one Tuition. Can't wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: We were on the sixth floor overlooking the pool so quiet and peaceful

Lovely hotel, safe lagoon to swim in and snorkle. You have to be up REALLY early to bag a sunbed with a parasol. I sneaked down at 6.45am, and there was only three left. Out of many many of them. RUSSIANS seem to sunbathe from 6 in the morning. Visit the lovely man in Cleopatra perfume. He will do a lovely facial massage for free. WELL you will probably end up buying some facial essence!!! Tell him his English princess sent you
That will confuse him. Ha ha. Would love to go back for a longer stay. Only had 4 Days as had done Nile cruise, Pyramids at Giza and Red sea as a chill.

Lovely holiday. Great hotel right on the beach and all staff very helpful and kind. Considering we just went for a rest you couldn't ask for more, and plenty of activities available if you want to participate.
The food was not of the best quality but there was plenty of variety. The best food we had was a handmade pizza in the beach cafe. We chose not to drink alcohol but the odd drink was like lighter fluid.
The only trepidation I have about returning to such a beautiful, friendly place is the obnoxious Russian guests that are swarming round the hotel. I've never met such rude people, and found thier behavior offensive to the charming Arabic staff who are courteous and hard working. I was pushed out of food queues in more than one occaision and saw food flying when they knocked it over. At times it was like being in an Eastern European barriatric waiting room. Anyway, once used to it I used it as entertainment.
Would have a break there tomorrow if I was going back

What an amazing place. If you stay here you will have an amazing holiday. The staff cannot do enough for you. The animation team were fantastic, Cancan, teto, Negga, Julia, Gemma, shypsy and all worked tirelessly to entertain us. We felt at home here and will definitely be back. Well done x

Just arrived home from this hotel to be honest glad to be home after catching the D n V bug that's going on in the hotel at present. Used to watch other guest running to the public toilets. One of our party ended in in hospital with it.
The other down side was the service was awful used to wait ages for drinks ect n also did not like the way the staff waited with there hand open for tips this was very annoying.
Hotel was clean enjoyed my stay but defentitly would not return.

We had a reasonably good holiday here. May28-Jun11 2013
The location is good (If you discount the building site across the road).
The staff are excellent, always willing to say hello, chat, ask if you need anything, very friendly and welcoming.
The room we stayed in was a family suite, and it was huge! It was also very nicely furnished, very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. And for the first time in our trips to Egypt, the bathroom was perfect!
The Pool and seawater lagoon were excellent, although maybe a little more shade could be provided in the pool area. Swimming with the fishes in the lagoon was fun, especially if you had a little bread in your hand.
Forget the wifi unless you're desperate to stay in touch on your hols. It's expensive at £24 (UK) for 6 days, and it's impossible to stay connected for more than 5 minutes without having to log-in again and again. There is free wifi at several of the local bars and restaurants which is far better.
The Animation team are a great bunch of kids (We're in our 50's). Always ready to chat, friendly, happy to take guests into town at night after their show.
Many thanks, Julia, Gemma, Teto, Chipsy, and the rest. You're cool!
The beer could have been better (Luxor brand). Stella is better, and Sakkara Gold is the best :) schlurp! But Luxor is the only one that's included in the all inc in the resort.
Wildlife (apart from fish!) : there is a family of Kestrels living on a ledge on the 7th floor. They're fun to watch!

The downside?
The food most days was just awful. My partner and I have BOTH lost weight because a lot of the food was inedible. There were good days, but in general only breakfast was of a decent standard.
Rubber beef curry....
Inferno chile con carne...
tasteless vegetables...

So, we ate out a lot, and were happy.

Oh yes, for great food, good beer, great staff, visit the Granada bar, just down the road. More expensive than most in Hurghada, but an excellent establishment!

Room Tip: Get a family suite if you can!
