Hotel located in new hurghada so not much to do or see in the area directly by the hotel. Easy to get a taxi to sheraton street for 15 EGP.
Huge hotell, can be e bit tricky to find ones way around it at first. Many guards and plenty of staff to help. Good service and helpfull staff, but slow if one do not tip them. All pre bookings are to be made one day in advance, not more, not less.
Big room with very comfortable bed and nice balcony. Be sure to choose room with a view over poolarea and garden oterwise you will only see/hear construction areas. The whole hotel is very worn down, well cleaned but many small things are broken. Exeptionally nice garden and poolarea! A bit too few sun beds by the heated pool in the winter. At our visit 1 pool was 16 degrees, 1 was 28 degrees, 1 pool closed for construction and kids pool closed. Lovely beach towels and a bag to borrow is included in the room.
Minibar is not expensive, it is rather more expensive to buy a beer at the bar and bring to the room than to take one from the minibar. Room is cleaned, new towels and refilled minibar every day if wanted,oterwise just tell your room mantainence guy or put the "do not disturbe" at the door if you dont want service every day. Laundry service. Security box free of charge at the room.
Half board - 3 restaurants are included, but be aware that you have to pay for drinks and in the restaurant mediterraneo only a few selected meals are included in half board (no meat), check the last page in the menu! one have to pay for the rest. Food is mainly tasteless but plenty to choose from at the buffet at breakfast and dinner, so no need to go hungry.
One have to cross the road and go thru Grand Hotel to get to the ocean. Sunbeds and umbrellas are free of charge but "bellboys" will take your bags and towels for you and show you to a sun bed and expect a tip for it.
