This was our fisrt time in Egypt and after reading all the reviews about the Sea Magic, i was so worried because i had booked for my mom, dad, brother and his family.
But it is'nt really that bad yes the rooms need some attention but all the restarants the food was lovley yes its full of rude Russians but they did'nt bother me one bit. If they came in my way i would just put them straight. The kids club was so good all the teachers were good always on time.
The food was brill breakfast = fresh croissant, fresh omeletes with peppers, tomatoes, onions. or which ever way u wanted beans, boied eggs, scrambeled eggs, ceareals, fresh orange juice, tea, coffee, hot chocolate,pineapple juice, mango and lemon juice..... loads of fruits and salads, different yogurts, cheese, beef sausage yummmy. fresh mosley and loads more. dinner was the same loadsto choose from jacket patatoes fish ,pasta, chicken, mash chips was only available at the beach and the Italian outdoor resturant. At the beach they would serve chips burgers chicken in babs chicken sausages. ow i forgot the food we had was warm and yes we had to queue but there was eleven of us and we didnt have to queue for long consederating we needed a big table. Our turn would come before i knew it.
The staff are brill they really go out their way and never are rude always saying your welcome as soon as we say thankyou. we had a brilliant holiday we did alot of excursions but even if we stayed in the hotel we would have been alright yes i will agree its not up to five star @ our standards but its not that bad i was on holiday and i was going to enjoy myself and yes i did.
The ammination team tried very hard they were ok, not brill but juss ok.
The gardens are lovley well kept and yes there is lots of stairs to look at, at first but the Sea Magic bus starts from morning till 10.00pm. going round and round and when the driver knows your room drop of he will drop you off nearer to your room. Looks strange at first the lay out but you soon get the hang of it. if you have a frind in another room you can keep in touch by ringing each other for FREE on the phone just put 8 at the bigining and then the room number it is a bit low but you can comunicate this way for free.
The main swimming pool was really cold i tried to swim but it was jjust to cold.The italian restarant has a swimming pool by it and its warm. The italian restarant is 5min away you could alway catch the sea magic bus. There is another swiming pool indoor with a warm waterfall this was nice. The free towels are lovley and clean and very warm you can exchange them anyway from the beach to big pool or even reception.
didnt get enough time to vist the spa shop or i would love to have a turkish bath ,maybe next time.
There are 7 restrants to choose from but some you have to go there and book,we booked the Tandoori restarant it was lovely and on the menu you get lots to choose from eg. vegtabals, beef,chicken and fish. we had all four and it was lovley and tasty.
We tried to book the Royal Wok but it was fully booked. There is a restarant near the beach the food was lovley their too and there even was a belly dancer and a musician in the evening.
The shops in the hotel are so cheap but please do haggale the price. The purfum shop is owned by Hasaan and he is so good and so nis mohammad opposite his shop he has some bargins( he has all the picture) and not forgetting cheeky Ashraf who likes to be called Ashley. Dont bother with clothers man his too expensive and i found him rude. There is a photo man , we brought a waterproof camara from him and developed the photos of him from the beach snorkling we did our selfs. the photos were developed really good for only £8.00 and we still have the negatives too.
The views are stunning so juss make the most of it.
There is a fridge in every room and you get a big bottle of minerial water everyday, rooms and bathroomare cleaned everyday.
yeh just make sure you shut the balcany door because they forget to lock the door and try and keep the doors and windows shut or the mosgitos will bite.
There is a hairdriyer and washing line in the bathroom., the only thing i would say is there is no tea or coffee facilities in your room and being five star i thought they would aleast provided us with this , but maybe i had booked a standard room thats why.
We was happy with our holiday but we found a lovley english family and they were not very happy with everything can't understand b-cause it was'nt that bad. If you like a full English breakfast then this hotel is not for you, its a muslim country and they don't serve or have pork. There is a shisha area lovley done out but just didnt have time to spend there, lovley views
