“Fabulous hotel, really relaxing. Loved every minute!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2010

I have just returned from a week at Sunrise Holidays Resort and am suffering a serious case of the post-holiday blues! It was really fabulous. I went with my mum for a relaxed week away from it all that we booked at the last minute. This is hotel is so much better than I expected and i'm already looking at going back asap.

The best thing about the hotel has to be the staff. Everyone was so friendly. I have never been anywhere before where every single member of staff was so nice. They remembered your name, what you like to drink, where you are from... I was amazed!

The food is excellent and the chefs should be commended for their good work. There is a huge choice for every meal and there was always plenty of food available. For dinner you can eat the the El Sol buffet, Arabian Nights or Mediteranian restaurant. Our favourite was Arabian nights which served food from various Arabian countries. It was quieter than El Sol and very chilled. We didn't have to queue at all for dinner despite the hotel being at full capacity while we were there.

We went to the spa twice and again both said that the massages we had were the best ever!! I'd highly recommend the 'Paradise' package at the spa, it was pure indulgence!

The hotel was spotlessly clean at all times, as were the beach and the pool. Again, despite the hotel being busy we never had a problem getting a sunlounger as there were so many. In the middle of our week we went on the snorkelling trip from the hotel which was a great day out. Despite being slightly apprehensive at first it was amazing to see the fish and to have the experience of snorkelling in the red sea. We booked directly through the aqua centre at the hotel which was much cheaper than the same trip offered by our rep at the welcome meeting.

The only thing I would say was that our bathroom was looking quite tired and needs updating to meet the standards of the rest of the hotel. However we spent very little time in our room so it wasnt a major drawback.

The weather was beautiful. There was a breeze most days as well which meant that we didn't overheat too much. The location was great, only a short drive from the airport and not far into the town of Hurghada, although we were pretty lazy and spent most of our time in the resort!

I have to say a huge thank you to the wonderful animation team at Sunrise Holiday Resort. To Maya, Momo, Eddie, Svetlana and Sharif the Chief!! Before we went on the holiday I had read the good reviews about the animation team on trip advisor, but I really didn't expect them to be as brilliant as they were. Every night there were great shows and during the day you could do lots of fun activities - I would definitely reccomend getting involved. Even if you are after a relaxed holiday the activities are so much fun. I loved the dance classes and water gym, but there was lots of choice to suit all. The really made our holiday, and worked so hard. I really hope some of their energy and enthusiasm has rubbed off on me.

Overall we had a great holiday. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Next time I go I am hoping to go with friends to make the most of Hurghadas nightlife. I was really upset to leave and really could not recommend this hotel enough.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

Just returned from Hurghada and had a very relaxing break. The hotel is spotless and has a very relaxed atmosphere. The pool area was perfect and the hotel gardens, beach and rooms were very well looked after. The only real niggle was that the food got boring after a couple of days, always good quality but little variance. Anyway, the staff were absolutely fantastic, from the brilliant room cleaning staff through to Eddie & the rest of the animation team. Day trip to Luxor was fantastic - thanks Sharrif; simply brilliant!

We stayed in this hotel on the last week of March, the check-in ran smoothly, we were in our room within several minutes. The furniture looked a bit tired, and the bathroom needed some extra cleaning, otherwise it was comfortable. We got two bottles of water every day and there was a heater in our room, so we could drink a tea or coffee whenever we wanted.
The food was great! There are 3 buffet restaurants in the hotel, so we always found free table. We didn't understand why were the people standing in queue in front of the 2nd floor restaurant, there were 2 others half empty.
We were in Egypt for diving,so we didn't visit the hotel's beach, but from our balcony it looked nice.
The city central is within walking distance. We really enjoyed these short trips to our diving centre.
The staff is helpful, they were always asking whether we were satisfied. One of the evenings there was no water in our room, we called the reception. Nothing happened. We had to go, because we had a meeting, on the passage we met the boss of the houskeepers, we told him our problem. It was solved within 5 minutes. Thanks for that!

This hotel is ideally located in the centre of Hurghada with shops, bars and cafes close by and only about half an hours walk mto the new Marina, which is deffinately worth a visit int he evening. The staff were very friendly, helpful and efficient and provided excellent service. I really enjoyed the food, ther was plenty of choice and variety and I particularly enjoyed the pizza at the snack bar on the beach,mmm delicious! Our room was clean, comfortable and peaceful. Our holiday was made even better by the Animation team who made us feel so welcome and a part of things. They provided several activities and even managed to get me off my behind to join in! In the evenings the put on extremely good shows. So Sherif, Iddie, Maya, Svetlana and Jolga thank you for all your hard work and for making our holiday a perfect one.

Sorry as been back 2 weeks and did promise the Animation team to write a review as we had a fantastic holidfay made all the more enjoyable by the Animation Team who were brilliant. All the Team spoke to us every day and made an effort to speak to every guest during their stay. Animation team were the BEST - thanks especialy to Sherif, Maya (yes we were rubbish!), Eddie & Mo-Mo. Hotel in great location (only a 5 minute walk to main shops), fantastic food, friendly staff and a relaxing holiday.
Thanks also to Mahmoud Taha who serviced our room every day and left it spotless with towels assembled into different animals most days - thankyou.
Room was huge and had kettle in room with shampoo,/ body lotion,/ shower gel replenished every day.
Our third time in Egypt but first in Hurghada and best yet with the BIG plus being the evening shows as previous holiday shows in Egypt were karoake etc but Sunrise shows were excellant - yes most shows done by the Animation team (how do they do it) and a couple from outside but all very professional. If you get a chance the Shaolin show is a must.
Thankyou sunrise - we shall return.
