Just got back from siva grand where I went for a week with a friend. Got a pretty good deal on it and I can't really complain about much at all. Enjoyed the food, good variety, always quite a buzzing atmosphere in the lobby, everything was clean and the pool and beach were great for sunbathing.
Went on a boat trip for some snorkelling one day, would definitely recommend it, had a great day and visited a lush beach. Wouldn't recommend going out in hurghada as 2 girls alone but with a guy or two i'm sure it'd be much safer, bit risky we found. The egyptian guys outside the hotel are also very pushy but if you just stand your ground and say no its fine.
Weather was hot most days, sometimes a bit windy but thats not the hotel's fault. Entertainment in the pool everyday and in the lobby every evening. Drinks can get a bit repetitive and you have to pay after 12 but that wasn't too much of an issue for us, just stocked up.
Only complaint would be that the service was brilliant the first couple of days then gradually got worse as we weren't willing to tip and said no to going out at night with the bar staff. They barely served us after that and were really quite rude.
Overall though a great week away for a good price. Lots of fun stories to tell.
