“Just come back...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

I just came back from this hotel yesterday. The hotel resort is quite big with lots of green grass and trees.
If you want to reserve your sun bed in the first row, you should get up at 6.20 am. Later you could have a problem with that, but no problem with reservation in other rows at all.
If I did not have a tv in my room, I would not have known about situation in Egypt.
Regardless of the state of emergency in Egypt, I did not have a problem with any kind of service during my stay.
Pros & cons:
+ quite big resort
+ good oportunities for snorkling
+ good conditions for windy sports
+ own medical center

- cuisine
- the same programme during a day
- no posibillities for late night walkings outside the resort

First of all prior to going we looked at the reviews and thought maybe we should not of booked this.
However all our family were amazed at the place!
Food- yes maybe not to everyone's liking but there is something for everyone.
Our family had no stomach upsets.
The staff were outstanding and friendly
The resort is in a beautiful condition,very clean and maintained very well.
Salesmen are there but not as pushy as you may of heard as a firm no means no.
Yet saying that the excursions were reasonably priced and well worth doing adding to the experience.
We felt that the ice creams though should of been available at all bars not just the gazebo bar as the kiddies slide pool was at he other end of he resort away from the ice cream vender.

On a personal note our family would like to thank Ezz for making our holiday a special and unforgettable time for us all,and to all the other members of staff at the Caribbean world resort we thank you too.

This was our first trip to hugara and this hotel,was a little worried before we went as some of the reviews weren't great. However we had a great time,food in main restaurant was ok,breakfast was the best meal here, the are also two a la cart restaurants the BBQ and Italian, we were told by our rep that as we wore red wrist band that we were VIP,s and that we were entitled to as many visits to the a la cart restaurants as many times in that two weeks.
The staff are very aware of the bad review they are getting on here and try very hard to make sure that every thing is ok on your holiday, we had only one issue which was the air con not working but this was resolved within hours of us going to reception.
This hotel was mainly Russian and Germans but this was not an issue for us.
Would return to this hotel the only thing that let if down was the door in main restaurant but we never went hungry and its a little further away from hugara than we though 45 minutes by hotel shuttle bus. Thanks to the staff in the gazebo bar for filling our glasses and giving us great service.

Room Tip: Trip little and often - for that extra VIP feeling.

I stayed in this hotel in summer 2011 and was big disappointment. The hotel is definitely not 5*, but more 3+* hotel.
The complex looks nice, but the service and food is very average. Especially the sortiment of food in the main restaurant was sometimes very poor.
The cleannes in pool and restaurants is ok, but in the room was it teribble. In your room was cockroachs and the personal was absolut not interessted and reluctant to do something. They chnaged our room after 4 days of complaining and asking without any word of apologize for trouble! It was my worst stay in Egypt.

Looks: landscape is just like it is on pictures! Great! Especialy if you know that it is made on sand and stone :-)

Rooms: really big, clean and comfortable. Great terrace view! Spacious bathroom, soft towels. Give some tips to the cleaner - they really aprecciate it!

Beach: beautiful! Carribean style :-) Worth to come here!

Guest service: very kind and helpful, especially Mrs Olena

Pools and aqua park: Looks nice, but I prefered clean and warm sea. Aqua park gives you or your children chance to have great fun. It is simple, but in Egypt if hotel has impresive aqua park, the beach or sea is not as good.

Food: Not spectacular, but no one will stay hungry. BBQ restaurant has the best choise of meals. Shrimp in Tortuga was great!

Spa: clean, great massage, big sauna. Bargain and you will get really good service!

Animation team: These people give their best! They work hardly whole day!

I travelled all around the world and like Egypt very much, so I know what to expect - beautiful beach, warm sea, and I got it here plus nice looking hotel and kind staff. If you expect to eat and drink exquisite or to have night fun - you should pick Spain, Italy, Greece... Otherwise, you will enjoy this beautiful carribean style vacation!

Well done CWSB and thank you for your effort :-)

I weren't looking forward to this holiday after reading the reviews but on arrival I was pleased as the resort looked a lovely place, the staff was very friendly and the weather amazing, overall the resort and beach a lovely place but we were soon made aware that its definitely not a British resort, their were very few British their only came across 4 families in the first week and weren't many more in the second, mainly Eastern Europeans so no entertainment in English so the children quickly got bored, the alcohol terrible wine about the best, not so bad with lemonade, the food terrible ended up buying crisps to live on the second week, breakfast is the best you will get but then need to make sure eggs are cooked properly as they will place it on your plate half cooked. The sales staff very annoying dont take no for an answer and come by one after the other all day long which gets tedious. We paid a lot of money for this holiday so came home very annoyed, the positive side to the holiday is the resort very nice and beach lovely, staff very friendly if it was a British resort and food improved dramatically it would be a lovely holiday, but will not be going back

I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and 10 year old daughter.
We were the only people from our transfer going to this resort and we didn't hear another British accent for the first 4 days!! .
The staff are excellent and the hotel, grounds and rooms are spotlessly clean.
The food in the main restaurant isn't great, a lot of it is geared toward the Russian guests. Being that we booked with Thomsons, we were allowed unlimited use of the BBQ and Italian restaurant which I would advise you use!! Book at the being of your holiday for the length of your holiday to avoid eating in the main restaurant at dinner.
The pool bar is good for lunchtime snacks.
All the staff were so pleasant and extremely helpful.
There are numerous shops in the hotel, selling handbags (great!!), watches, jewellery, sports clothes etc. the biggest annoyance is constantly having to haggle for everything you buy.
Something to be aware of is when you arrive at the airport and go to passport control you will have to buy a visa, you can't go through without one, it was 400EGP for the 3 of us.
