“If not staying in the hotel all the time and came for Diving, etc. it's ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

Denis Hiles review is very pointed. But if you still are going to stay in this hotel I can give some tips.
- Very big and well maintained territory.
- Not a lot of people, because only 1/3 hotel is opened for living.
- All staff tries to speak English.
- Professional front office manager.
- Fun and friendly animation team, Speaks good English. Sugar and Mido do the work properly.
- The barman Joseph in the pool bar uno is the only professional barman who is able to make tasty and various cocktails from the poor alcohol choice.
- Comfortable to take quick pica bite in BBQ corner and chicken burgers in Beach bar.
- Chinese a la cart is the best from all 4 restaurants, because of good and polite service, fluent English. Meal is different from the main dinner in the 2nd floor (not like other a la cart).
- Nice views from the roof top - they should do some bar up there.
- Safari and diving service I bought in the hotel was professional. Definitely going to use the same service next time I am in Hurghada. Prices ~ 40 $ for Diving, ~ 35 $ for Day Safari.
- Shops near the hotel offers the same or even cheaper prices as in Hurghada. For example, 3 bottles of 50 ml. perfumed oil for 30 $, 5 papyrus book tap for 1 $, etc.
- Take the boots for sea.
- Take something from and after mosquito bite, do not leave open window in the evening.
- Look for a clean cup and plate before eating.
- Round trip to Hurgada by taxi 8 $.
- Round trip to El Gouna by taxi 6 $.

Hotel has potential, just so many things still to improve. The biggest disappointment was food, outdated furniture in the room as well. Should really work on small details, such as put toilet brushes, chandelier in the lobby (only wires hanging), etc., clean plates and cups properly...

Sincerely, I would come back to this hotel only if it is going to improve.

Room Tip: I recommend to stay in 17th building, because it is far away from the evening animation (no noise) a...

We spend 10 days in September 2014 at Nubia Aqua Beach Resort. Overall impression of the hotel is good. I would pay more attention to hotel property managment, maitnance and housekeeping. Hotel suppose to be new, but rooms are pretty worn ( a lot of scratches on the walls, which are easly fixable), rooms were not very clean, especially showers, baseboards and corners. Anmation were great, frontdesk stuff friendly and always helpful, food is good, cant complain. We were on the tours 8 days out of 10. I like that hotels provides a lot of space to walk around and different pool sizes, have their own spa place. Other part which i need to mention is that beach is not easy accesable , all bottom is cover with corals . Hotel located kind of far away from the center of the Hurgada. So you cant just walk outside. For the improvmenet i would reccomended to do wi fi in the rooms . Its 21 century and impossible to stay without internet. Overall hotel is great just needs a little improvement and more paying attention to the small deatail which can make operation of the property better and have more happy returnng clients. Wish you all the best!!!!

This hotel is very heavily Russian based. 2 English couples from a half full hotel during our 11 day stay.
The food was terrible, apart from the breakfast omelette, which ruined the holiday.
The a la carte restaurants a joke. Rice in the Chinese, pasta in the Italian and cabbage in the Russian one the only link the menus had.
Getting drinks in small plastic cups from the bar only bettered from the vodka, rum, brandy and whiskey choice with the lager was disappointing. One bright spot was the barman at the poolside bar. He was brilliant with the cocktails from a poor choice of ingredients.
The staff were mainly helpful though on the last day hassled me for the return of the towel cards. Also wanted to remove bracelet at 12pm though not leaving till 6pm.
Beach disappointed to say the least. Mainly mud with imported sand on top. Any wave movement left it cloudy. Restricted access left or right of beach. Not able to use the jetty from the hotel next door, on the right, so unable to go snorkeling.
To the left was a guard stopping you walking along the "beach". After a sneaky bypassing of the guard I was greeted by a coastal area of a dumping ground. Hence the finding of dead fish on the beach I presume.
The hotel is 15 kilometres from hurghada only accessed by taxi. £15 round trip. Everyone trying to get money from you. Wi Fi very costly and slow. Took 10 minutes to load a page!
Avoid unless you speak Russian.

Dear Mr Denis Hiles
Thank you very much for sharing your experience with tripadvisor.com users.
Kindly be informed that Nubia Aqua Beach welcome all guests in the hotel without any priority by nationalities. Unfortunately the UK market now is very low, so it will be not much english speaking guests in Hurghada this days.
All inclusive guests are entitle for the one time use each of a la cart restaurants during their stay. Each of this restaurants has a basic menu inclusive in this program and menu which is out. However basic(inclusive) menu consists always of salad, soup, main course, and dessert. All the beverage,which are inclusive in All inclusive will be inclusive there as well.
As you may know, according the international rules, it is not safety to use the glasses around the pools. Beverages in glasses are serving in the restaurants, terrace bar and lobby bar.
With all respect to the comment concerning the beach area we would like to inform you that all the beaches in Al Ahia area of Hurghada are like ours, depend of the tides. It is geography and can not be change. We are always advise to all our guests to use a rubber shoes for comfortable entrance to the sea. Also we would like to mention that the hotel is not advertize in any of our official website presents of the jetty.
Kindly be inform that in front of the hotel is located a bus stop. The bus will drive you to the Dahar area of Hurghada just for 2 Egyptian pound for one way.
Reference to the WIFI point, kindly be inform that the hotel is not mention in its fact sheet or catalogs free wi fi zone.
Best Regards

I stayed in the nubia aqua beach resort and this hotel should have been called the nubia comedy resort. First night I arrived me and my fiancé went to bed with no food after a flight and travel. The options of food was boiled rice, mashed potatoe or beans. That was it. The restaurant staff were terrible at service and had no interest to please or offer an alternative. Instead of writing a full review I have decided to list the faults there were that many!!

No food on night 1, understandable it was 9:50pm but no alternative.
Squashed Mosquitos on the hotel bedroom walls
Not enough bottled water or toilet roll
Restaurant a complete joke at breakfast and dinner.
Selection of food was the worst I've ever experienced
No cutlery you had to search the hall and tables for spoons folks etc
No tables cleared of plates or new cloths crumbs and stains from previous diners on the tables every time we ate.
Bowls and glasses chipped and cracked
Every day something had run out milk, coffee, cereal.
Alacart restaurants have never been alacart the same food is served through out all you can eat buffet where you don't want to eat all you can. Restaurant lights were turned out to encourage us to leave we had been dining 1 hour 15 minutes.
All inclusive drinks are beer, brandy, vodka, whisky and rum that's it. Drinks served in 1/4 of a pint plastic cups!
My return flight was 9pm check out was 12pm and the hotel wanting to take my all inclusive band off and charge me to use the facilities.

The hotel structure has potential however lots of the hotel staff don't speak any english as most guests are Russia. There were some staff who really did go out of their way to make your stay as good as possible. Lobby bar staff were exceptional friendly and polite. Pool bar 3 barman was fantastic and the life guard was lovely chatty and friendly.

The hotel has the potential to be an amazing place, I feel that meal times were the biggest downfall and the staff needed direction. All though my overall holiday was good it could have been excellent. I definitely won't be returning.

Nubia is the best hotel, I spent 10 unforgettable days with friends. The hotel is a pleasant environment for relaxing. Wonderful staff, room number is really great! They have the best animation team. The area is very large: it is possible to sit in silence or where to enjoy a drink with friends. I received great pleasure from holidays. Thank you very much!!!
