“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

A friendly hotel, the staff were very polite and helpful. a "Brit free" holiday, lots of Germans and Russians stayed here. Not a hotel for you if you want a busy area, very quiet and a bit isolated. Lots of choice with respect to food, not spectacular, but on the whole I have eaten far worse in hotels. Rooms were clean, staff attentive. I would stay here again

Room Tip: stay out of the main hotel building

Between my boyfriend and I this was our 5th time in Hurghada, so we had a pretty good idea what to expect from the hotels and the services.
Of course, 4 stars in egypt is not the same as 4 stars elsewhere in the world, but this place is clean and well taken care of.
The location: it's a little further away from the center than many other hotels, it took us almost 30 minutes to get to from the airport. Taking a taxi to the shopping areas was also about 15 minutes away, so this isn't the busy center. We liked that because we were looking for a quite and relaxing place. But if you're into nonstop shopping or discos, this is not the place for you.

The hotel: We paid extra for the pool/garden view and it was well worth it. We got a first floor room in the part of the hotel by the theater and right by the pool - there're 4 pools in the resort and we found this one quiet and empty enough that we didn't go elsewhere for much of our stay. Everything was still close enough, even restaurants and the beach, so you won't end up walking too much.
The sea is very shallow but there's a pier around which people swam and snorkeled.
AC worked without problems. Beds were nice and firm.
Cleaning staff was efficient but didn't create crazy towel creations - if you're into that sort of thing.

The food: it does get repetitive after a week, but they try to keep it interesting by thematic nights (italian, barbecue, ..), local food options, grill and salad bars, soups, lots of pastries and breads and fruit. We always has something to choose and they also have a special diet section with lightly seasoned ingredients.
There's also an italian and an arabic restaurant in the resort, you can book your dinner there too a day in advance.

The drinks: we booked all inclusive and got to drink nonstop at the pool and the hotel bars. Just know that they do not provide bottled water, only water tanks and soda machines - some people are hesitant, but I drank it all during the stay and was fine the whole time.

Overall, it is a nice relaxing place where people care about their guests, but do not go completely out of their way - so you don't feel too bothered.

Room Tip: Pool[garden view worked for us. Sea view is in the main hotel only and quite far away from the beach...

I have recently returned from an unforgettable holiday,not only did I suffer with a chronic stmach infection,I was also unfortunate to be offered one accomadation for three persons instead of three single occupancy rooms.The management and reception were very rude,unhelpful and not in the slightest interested in the stress and anxiety it caused the party I travelled with !

Room Tip: ensure all bookings are confirmed before arrival and request lower level rooms near pool areas

It is a beautiful place to spend your holidays in. A quite resort in a beautiful city. Rooms were fantastic with a beautiful view from windows. Staff are very entertaining for visitors on the beach, especially for children who have special care. Food is fine of different varieties. Night time attraction starts in the resort theater when staff play daily show which is really nice .

Room Tip: Better choose sea view rooms

Food isn't amazing, but there is always something. Beach bar food was always ok. Beach is beautiful, clean, plenty of sun beds & pool bar is good. The best thing about this hotel is the cleanliness (and I'm very fussy). All Staff are friendly (with the exception of hotel reception, they rarely smile and can make you feel a little uneasy when asking a question, luckily we didn't need to go to them much)
We were given room 703, whilst it was clean it was also dark, old & very tired looking with no balcony or terrace, I knew I couldn't live in this room for 2 weeks, it's always nice to sit out on an evening. We were moved with little hesitation to room 153, different story altogether, now I felt like I was on holiday, clean light, bright room with a balcony & a pool in view, perfect!
The staff are always on the go keeping the grounds clean & well kept.
Entertainment wise we can't really comment as it doesn't really cater for the 'Brits' more the Russians & Germans. But we were happy to keep to ourselves. Only a couple of other British couples are the resort. It's a massive complex and seems like a good place for kids & water sport lovers. Nobody bothers you at this resort once you say no they happily leave you to relax.
Not for meeting other couples, 20mins (£10 return in a hotel taxi) from hurgada town.
Perfect for a chill out with your partner or friends, relaxing on the beach or by the lovely pools.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony or terrace or you'll be given the basic room. Don't be afraid to ask to be...

We were in Calimera Club in October this year for 11 days. Before we went I had read some reviews about this hotel and found some people moaning about some petty issues, so was a bit concerned what we could find there.
After arriving to the hotel we came around that all the gossips about bad staff, food, drinks and the hotel itself were unwarranted. Main lobby look really nice and stylish with comfortable sofas and chairs.The check-in process took about 3 mins and was smooth and easy. The room we got was spacious with huge bathroom with the garden view.THe air-condition worked perfectly sometimes was even too cold. Room was cleaned every day, the towels were changed daily too. The main restaurant was fantastic. Variety type of food, drinks.All done in a proper way. Everything was delicious, fresh and clean ! The staff was absolutely great. Cleaning up the tables also preparing them for new guests who came to eat. Because there were so different types of dishes we were not able to eat(check) everything for 11 days of being there. There are also 2 a la carte restaurants: Italian and Oriental. We only tried the Italian and food was fabulous.The beach restaurant and the bar...the best in the world :) During the lunch time no need to go to the main restaurant as they were serving great snacks(everything different type of meat), salads, afternoon coffee, tea and some cakes.
The beach bar staff was the best in the whole universe...guys were so friendly, very funny, doing some pranks all the time and messing around with the people.
The beach was very beautiful with plenty of beach chairs so there was no problem to find one at any time.Sea colors were sunning.The are tree huge pools and some kind of a pool river which connected two of the pools each other. The animation in the hotel was awesome. Every day and night it was something to watch, play, listen...full integration with the guest.THey were organizing plays with the kids so parents could get some drink or tan all day in peace:) They were very funny and doing they job in a very professional way( looked like they were born to be animators). Every evening was a disco in a hotel ( till 12-midnight all inclusive ), absolutely great fun.
In total I recommend this hotel everybody who want to spend relaxing time and want to rest and meet nice people.Its not for a posh people. Even though its only 4 star hotel this are really strong 4 stars!. There is really nothing you can stick with something. Also before you go have to think in this way: you get what you pay for.
If you expect golden walls and chandeliers then go to RITZ or STEIGENBERGER, spend 150euro per night and then demand to have all done to the highest standards etc.
This hotel is worth to go and will definitely back there:)
Would like to send greeting to: Anis, Dala, Anke, Ahmed <-animators, Mohammed, Wael, Ahmed, Roman(Romka)<-from the beach bar...

Room Tip: Do not order taxi from he hotel ( a guy sits behind the reception on the left hand side...his name i...

Hotel is fine specially if you like to do some activities like sport on the beach or in the swimming pool etc. But, never book it in hotels4u neither in Thomas Cook, their representants there lie to you directly when buying them visa. But not only the person in the desk, also the superotelvisor. when you claim to the the central office they dont even answer to you.
So, if you like the hotel try to book it directly.
Food is a bit repetitive but drinks are always available and you really need it

Room Tip: try beach view room
