If you are looking for luxury, then dont choose Sphinx hotel. But, if you want hotel on great location, with small sandy beach, on the one side and beautiful coral reef on the other side, with friendly stuff, and good food, than choose Sphinx. Everyone wants to help you in any time, and solve any problem if you have, try to talk to you in your own language, even it is serbian:)Rooms are very spacious and clean and mades are really try to make you feel comfortable.Animators for kids and adults are also great. They try to animate you in the morning and in the evening but they dont bother you. The guys who offer excursions on the beach are also very friendly ad you can make a deal with them about the price.Managers are available and really care about the quests. So, Sphinx hotel, see you again for sure!!!!

It is the 5th time I visit Hurghada, compared with other hotels I was in, this hotel is very nice and cleaner, staff are helpful and friendly and the beach is big and clean. No matter where you go you will meet nice people around to help and make you feel good
The hotel was relaxing it has good vibes with their extraordinary animation team who are doing the great job and trying to involve all the guest in the many variety activities not only during the day but also in the evening entertainments. Animation team is active, speaks a lot of languages, we were well informed about all activities and enjoyed it. Ash, a nice beautiful young lady, she bright all days with her big beautiful sparkling eyes and contagious smile. Also I don’t want to forget Blacky, a grate entertainer, he did a fantastic job looking after us on the nights to the clubs he made sure was all OK and had a great time. I cannot remember all of them here, but overall, all of them made us fill special and welcome.
We accumulated many beautiful memories during the holiday

Sphinx is a great hotel in a wonderful place! The territory is green and cosy, rooms are comfortable and clean. Coral reef is beautiful and the sea is very clean.
Animation in the hotel is amazing! There are a lot of different activities every day. You may enjoy stretching, dancing, different games and evening shows. Many thanks to Carlo. He is always making a superb mood.
My family and I will definitely visit this hotel again!

This hotel looks far better on the videos than it actually is. Tiny beach area. All the sun loungers around the pool and on the beach are shabby.
No one really speaks or understands English.
This hotel is only geared up for the russians and Egyptians and given preference at the bars.
The all inclusive drinks come in tiny glasses about the size of two eggcups!
What can I say about the food!! Definitely not to the English peoples taste! Mash potatoes, half cooked fries, white rice, bean and pepper mixes, there were a couple of exceptions. No English breakfasts. The only good things were the desserts and fruit.
The room was kept reasonably clean but toilet rolls must have been at a premium as he only ever left one daily. The 3 girls room next door was worse as they only left them one and being as they all had diarrhoea I had to keep asking them at reception for more which didn’t arrive! Their hair dryer didn’t work despite numerous requests for it to be fixed. The table outside was never wiped for the whole seven days of the holiday.
All in all very disappointing especially after the week in March we spent at labranda on makadi beach which was stunning!
Lastly the manager on reception should try to control his temper when addressing his staff as screaming and shouting at them in front of guests is not acceptable.
On a good they do have a few gems working for them such as Abdul in the dining room.

I booked a room for my husband and I for what we felt was a good price at the time. We chose this hotel for the amenities and the all-inclusive aspect. However, upon arrival at the hotel they wanted to charge us an extra $150 dollars ($40 dollars per night) because my husband is Egyptian and I am America . This is absurd to me that they would charge extra because of someone’s nationality. For some reason it is cheaper if we are both American? This discrepancy in pricing is not transparent or posted anywhere. No where on any booking site does it ask you for the nationality of both guests. So we ended up paying much more than expected, I could have booked a better place for that price. The people at reception were completely rude and made us wait for a long time while they “checked” the validity of our marriage certificate. They’re just really disorganized and unable to explain anything with clarity.

The food was very subpar, most of it was recycled day after day becoming worse and worse quality as our stay went on. The fruit and salads in particular were brown and wilted. Most of the food caters to the largely Russian clientele with tasteless boiled potatoes, stringy stewed meats and mayonnaise salads.

They also advertise “free wifi” but they only have wifi in the reception area and it’s only for WhatsApp. Honestly it’s a budget resort with crumbling facilities masquerading as a nice all-inclusive resort. I would never stay here again or recommend it to anyone.

Please, do not visit this hotel. We were there for 7 days and our stay was terrible. We had to stay at really small, terrible room (really small shower space, not cleaned…). The pool was half of our visit closed, so we had to go to another one… so many people… sea was absolutely terrible (there were some big fishes, and rocks - that was really painful). I recommend to visit another hotel. About the food… Just spaghetti.. there was nothing to eat. Just rice ot spaghetti. Fruit-just melone. If you are from another country, and not from egypt, you do not have rights here… that’s all

Anyone would expect to get a larger in at least a 300ml glass ( 1/2 pint ) well unfortunately you get it in a 150 ml glass .
If you want a medium strength they make it with high strength and a low strength.

What sort of clown hotel is it!

Management get your hospitality training back into gear.
It’s dreadful management

Dear Tracy, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at Sphinx Aqua Park Resort, Hurghada. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations! I do however want to point out that Egyptian beer is much lighter than European one, if you do prefer a stronger one we do offer imported beer for an extra charge. It is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.

Do not go if you are british. We were the only british in the hotel. Nowhere to drink after 5pm unless u fancy sitting in the lobby area. Food was the same pretty much everyday. And wasnt nice at all. I am vegetarian so struggled to eat anything. But foods looked like they were based around foreign cultures. Other guests were rude would put their hands into food try it and put it back. Other guests taking plates and plates of food. Taking 3tables for food between 4 of them. When we complained we was told we are used to it. Entertainment was foreign. Hotel was clean in rooms and was cleaned everyday. People threw up in the pool regularly. Was never shut to be cleaned. Communal toilets stunk of stale urine.
Positives. Private beach and coral reefs on the sea so good snorkling place. Also there is the beach bar which incurs extra charges. But the guys who run that do an amazing job and made my time there ok. I will not be returning to this hotel.

The food is quite good and tasty, there are several bars on the territory
You will definitely enjoy the trip.

I just left this horrible hotel .. won’t repeat this terrible visit .. we didn’t have fun at all

The food was very very ordinary without varieties and the quantity and quality of food was very low.

The capacity of guests was overwhelming.. they can’t control the huge capacity of guests, so sometimes when you know that you can’t handle big numbers you should of write complete rooms or something like that.

The hotel and the bathrooms were very smelly.

The people were rude, I swear I can count the people that smiled to me on one hand.
