“Don't be put off by the (sad) current political crisis in Egypt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Tbh, I was a little worried about coming to Egypt with the current political crisis going on, but please don't be alarmed! I've felt 100% safe, tho this hotel is soo amazing you won't want to go outside anyway!
I'm in room 259 sat on my balcony, overlooking the beautiful beach, enjoying the peace! The room is immaculate, pristine, well kept...
I've dined in all 4 restaurants here, all are amazing... Also next door, in the Asian, ( not so good sadly) the food is faultless here.. good inclusive wine from the bottle, friendly service, not tried the fish restaurant yet, which is not part of the AI package.
To sum, this place is WoW, classy for a AL, not a holiday camp for chavs! Enjoy ...

We went in September 2013.Never go back and id never recommend this hotel. It was a waste of a lot of money. As only British people were being allowed to travel there it was full of Egyption people and food, entertainment, music was all mainly aimed towards them. In the week we were there there were many complaints from brittish people because of this. The hotel its self was lovely but service in the rooms was not very good, towels were forgotten a few times after our rooms were cleaned, waiter service was not very good. Egyptions seemed to be constantly put first. As we were leaving we had staff admitting that the food and entertainment had been aimed at the Egyptions. I have never felt so un relaxed on holiday. It felt like we were invading other peoples holidays. Felt so uncomfortable and couldnt wait to get home.

Pros.
Staff working in the Reception and the main Restaurant were very professinal and friendly.
The architectural design of the resort is very nice
Food was great. Animation show was nice at night.
Cons
Room was not clean at all, dead insects were spotted daily in the room, furniture is exhausted and old. Plumbing connections broke down twice in two consecutive nights, the staff working on the pool and the retaurant by the beach were rude and were checking out everylady that passes by. Worst beach in Hurghada. No corals and sea water is not clear like at any other resort in Hurghada. Staff would give you one towel for the whole day to use by the pool and would't exchange it for you unless its totally soaked. Didn't spot anybody from the animation team during the day.
I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

I had stayed at Sunrise Grand Select Crystal Bay Resort last week. My stay at this awesome resort was for only 4 nights, but really I loved the place very much. The staff was more than professional and the services were excellent too. My wife and I had stayed very enjoyable, lovely and unforgettable vacation there. We loved our room so much and the food also was delicious. Really we intend to repeat our visit very soon. I would like to send my greetings to the hotel's wonderful staff and wish them all the very best.

We visited this hotel when the European governments had stopped allowing people to travel to Egypt so there were very few guests and so, unfortunately, not much atmosphere in the evening. However on the plus side we were automatically upgraded from a room to a suite directly over looking the sea. This was perfect. The rooms were faultless. A little annoying though that in a 7 night stay the cleaner knocked 5 nights to ask if the room was okay. In other words can I have a tip please. He did this despite us showing "do not disturb" every day and despite being given an adequate tip on the second day. We had no need to use the pools as we were so close to the sea and that was an absolute joy. The breakfast choice was very good, lunch at the pool restaurant was very good but unfortunately the evening meal in the main restaurant declined as the week went on. However we did use the European restaurant and that was excellent. Due to the hotel suffering with the loss of income I think they stopped using the air con in the restaurants so that was a little uncomfortable. Also they could think about probably offering a separate restaurants for children. The noise from kids running around and screaming was a little off putting when you have gone away for a rest! The service in the bar from reception was quite poor. When you got fed up of waiting to ve served and went to the bar yourself they were very sorry, asked you to sit down and they would serve you but then you still waited. I know there weren't so many staff because of the political situation but there weren't many guests either!

Room Tip: Having a room down by the sea is excellent but then that makes for a long walk to the restaurants.
