Boyfriend and I have just returned from a week at the grand resort. We had a lovely time, the weather was great, the hotel clean and luxurious. This part of Egypt is not seeing any of the problems in Cairo, Luxor etc so is safe to travel to.
The best part was the room and the balcony, we paid extra for a pool view and it was well worth it.
Things the hotel could further work on include the price of the drinks which are extortionate currently. It didn't affect our holiday as we and most other guests found bars outside the hotel, but it would have been nice to stay in the hotel in the evenings also. The Internet was too slow. You get bothered a bit too much on your first day by people wanting to sell you things pool side. Hurghada itself is not an attractive place so this is not a place for site seeing. The other guests (mostly German) were absolutely friendly and wonderful, made some good friends who hopefully we will see again.
The food was good, but more variety would have been appreciated. Fine for a week though.
All in all, I had a great time and would return.
