We stayed at titanic beach spa and aqua park from 27/09 - 11/10 and had a great holiday.
Our room was lovely and very clean, with beautiful towel statues every day made by our cleaner. We also got left 2 bottles of water and a big bottle of soft drink (fanta/cola/sprite) in our fridge every day. Only problem we had with our room was there was only 2 sockets in the room and none of them were near the mirror (Not good for us women who need to dry/straighten our hair!) Other than that, the room was perfect.
The pool area was really nice and all the pools were kept really clean. The swim up bar was fab, cooling off in the pool with a nice cold beer :-) The staff at the pool bar were brilliant and would bring your drinks over to you as soon as they seen your cup was empty, which was really nice. The one problem was that the plastic cups were nearly always dirty, I complained about this quite a few times which never seemed to made a difference. One time I even had cigarette ash in the bottom of my drink...
The lobby bar is not nice. For some reason there was always a really awful smell coming from behind the bar and again the glasses were never clean. My boyfriend got a beer from there one day and it smelled disgusting, he told the barman and he got him another which was the same, we were then put off and said it doesn't matter, as we walked away I watched the barman quickly rinse the glasses under the tap and then put them back out to be used again!! We never used the lobby bar again.
Most nights we would sit outside at the shisha bar which is lovely. The glasses are always clean and the beer is much better from there! The staff were always polite and very helpful, especially Omar, who would bring our drinks over to us every night without us even asking! He would remember what each of us drank, even tho he was always really busy, we would never be kept waiting.
The beach is gorgeous! It has a long jetty which you can get a bus down (only a 10 minute walk tho) and can go snorkelling/diving off the end of there which is amazing! Lots of different colourful fish to see. The staff on the beach were really friendly and helpful, bringing you mattresses, tables or ashtrays if you needed them. The staff at the beach bar were the opposite - rude, unhelpful, lazy and pervy!
Food wasn't good the first week, There was only the Jack restaurant open and after eating nothing but bread for 4 days we complained to the manager Mr Hisham who was very helpful and after that the food picked up. In our second week the Rose restaurant opened which was much better and had more variety. At lunch time you could get fried chicken, steak, fries, salad, bread and ice cream from the Chinese (through the day it's a snack bar, you can eat here every day if you wish). The Italian wasn't good when we went but some people we spoke to said it improved in the second week. The Lebanese was nice, chicken and beef kebabs, hummus, pitta breads etc. The Chinese was the best tho and the staff were wonderful, especially Mohamed, he was always working so hard and really looked after us for the 2 weeks we were there. On our second week the Titanic Palace opened so we got to eat at the Indian and Mexican which both were gorgeous! Best food we ate in the 2 weeks we were there.
The animation team have got to be the worst I have seen in Egypt, so lazy, ignorant and uninterested in speaking to anyone English. Most of the time they were too hungover to put any effort into the morning dance or ask guests to join in activities. The chief animator, Gio, was so rude and arrogant! ,Then we met Papa, who was completely different to the others, he was fun, enthusiastic, always happy and spoke to everyone. The next week a new animator started called Fichal who was very like Papa. Papa and Fichal were the only ones to make an effort, encourage people to join in activities and made time to speak to everyone.
I used the beauty salon once and was mortified - Don't let them talk you into getting your face/eyebrows threaded! With your stay at the hotel you each get a free 20 minute massage and ladies get a free hair wash and blowdry too which you can use whenever you like.
The aqua park was brilliant, with it being so quiet we never had to que which was great!
Overall we had a lovely time and didn't let the few problems we had ruin our holiday. The hotel was pretty quiet because of the trouble in Egypt. Hurghada is unaffected by the trouble and we felt completely safe while we were there.
We would stay at the titanic beach spa and aqua park again and would also like to try the titanic palace.
