“Very good value....Not luxury but we didn't pay a luxury price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This review is realistic & based on the price we paid:-

As with most Egyptian hotels knock a star off the rating. We paid £220 for a twin room for a week all inclusive so in my opinion very good value. The main activity of our holiday was scuba diving which we did every day leaving the hotel at 8.30am & not returning until 5pm only on the last day did we spend any time in the hotel during the day.

The hotel is located centrally so within easy walking distance of all shops, restaurants, bars & the Marina. It has mainly a Russian & East European clientèle, all very friendly & better guests than in some Brit dominated hotels I've stayed in.

Two smallish pools & a reasonably sized beach front considering the narrowness of the hotel.

The rooms were a little tired & our AC was very noisy but the beds were good & how much awake time is spent in an hotel room?

The food was a mixture of European & Egyptian freshly cooked food that we found of a good standard particularly bearing in mind the price we paid, but don't expect pizza, beefburger & chips or roast beef & Yorkshire pudding, this is Egypt not Blackpool. A wide selection of salad & breads & BBQ'd fish or meat & pasta available each evening. We preferred eating in the smaller 2nd floor more cosy restaurant rather than the canteen like ground floor restaurant.

The Russian/Ukraine animation team appeared to be very good with the children & much of the evening entertainment was aimed at children. The Beach area is reasonable & has a beach bar

The two Russian guest relation girls were excellent, mixing with the guests & ensuring that everyone was happy with the hotel & its facilities.

Very unusual for any Egyptian hotel it has a bar that opens at midnight & closes at 8am & the drinks are included in the 'All Inclusive' formula.

Slight grumbles:-

At breakfast in the upstairs restaurant coffee served in paper cups, a definite no no
Cutlery not replaced quickly enough
Not enough tables available at the main outside bar


Tips

The staff are very friendly & appear to like the British, the alcohol is served in pathetic little plastic glasses. Ask the waiters & bar tenders for glasses backed by an occasional small gratuity & you will be upgraded to larger glasses often with a personal bar to table service. In the second floor restaurant this will usually also reserve you a table.

For the third time we dived with the excellent ScubaHurghada who's boat is moored only a 8 minute drive from the hotel. Their prices are very competitive & includes hotel transfers & lunch on the boat.

every thing is good but this hotel need more places to sit and take a drink at night, beds and chairs need to be changed, also towels are old, respond for plumbing maintenance is not good, some rooms have problems with hot water.
Restaurants provide high quality food, but when I come late within restaurant opening time I find nothing to eat, they start closing before end of restaurant time specially in dinner time.

Stayed once again at the Minamark Hotel, a hotel which I have been visting for some years and was surprised at the improved standard in the hotel. Staff at this hotel excellent, rooms clean the best ones are in the main building with a good view, nice, swimming pool, nice beach BUT most of all the BEST improvement this time was found with the food served at both breakfast, lunch and dinner with good choice. Not many british in this hotel there was a lot of Russians guests so the entertainment/language is catered for them, but would highly recommend this hotel given its competive price and location. Just wish they would have tea making facilities in the rooms, improve the pillows and the air conditioning !

Room Tip: Main building rooms the best with good views too

Old and poorly kept hotel, uneatable food, broken locks on doors and windows, mosquito stains on the walls, poor beach, all-russian guests, no trace of 4*! Nothing in this hotel was worth of praise...

Minamark looks very smooth from tripadvisor photos, but in real the picture is not the same. A lot of managers look evrytime angry and rude with a tourists. Room-service If you don't pay, they wouldn't do a thing for your. Impossible to sleep because of the sounds from the street by passing vehicles + 24-00 to loud music played from a nearby cafe. 6 days without sleep. Reception staff was slow and inattentive. Be careful outside the hotel as you will receive hassle from the Egyptians asking you to buy buy buy! You will be harassed from the steps of the hotel to where ever you are going to! You will be sexual harassed if you are a women by the local men!

I was in September 2014 for two weeks at Minamark. Pleased with himself, food and facilities. The beach is beautiful. The staff is good. Bed and towels are good-clean. I believe that I will enjoy the hotel Minamark in the summer of 2015.... :)
