I stayed for 5 nights in October 2012 horrible dishes & food was served ,I think U can,t taste it because it is the most worst .I was stolen by the employees of the hotel just before I leave & U will not hear any other language but Russian language in that hotel because 95% of guests are Russians. the Gym is only a picture in propaganda but nothing is working even the walking machine .Overall it was very bad experience.

Room Tip: I do not recommend this hotel

Rest I Hurghada from 14 to 21 Jan. 2013. Food I personally don't like it. All monotonous. The only thing I liked that it pastries (cakes, buns). Fruit practically was not. There were only oranges, green melon, grapefruit. A good location. Close to the center of Hurghada. 3 pools, 1 heated (only there and swimming). Drinks of local production is quite possible to drink. And the beer and wine (red, white and rose) is quite good. As well as gin, rum, tequila, and so on. also normal. Cleaning every day. For$ 1 make different shapes of towels and blankets. We had a room overlooking the road and nearby hotel, which is not very much. Wanted to change the room, we were told that all busy. Although the people there were very few, and in the restaurant for breakfasts, dinners, suppers and near the swimming pool. Then realized that in the room there is nothing to do, and the hotel is practically were not. In General I liked everything.

Just returned from sun rise hotel and it was fantastic! Staff were all brilliant especially the animation team who did fantastic shows every night and where even at reception to wave us off on our departure. All of them extremely friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable. Food was fantastic, always a great choice. staff friendly, always on hand to help I'd there was a problem. Lagoon was super also and rooms always spotless. Would definitely return in the future.

Hotel was good, but major issue we faced was lack of communication from hotel staff, the reason language being a big issue...staff could only understand Arabic or Russian..they could not speak or understand English...our room no 1105 was like a mosquito breeding room...even after spraying mosquito repellant..there were at least 25 Mosquitos in the room...there were lot of activities for kids around...but all activities and games were communicated in Russian language...overall we enjoyed our stay...except the mosquito issue...we are vegetarian, dinning staff has been cooperative trying to explain ingredients of the food...as these were not communicated by the names of the dish..and there was no demarcation of veg & non veg food
