“Wonderful Holidays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I been here one week. And i didn't want to go home. Because here i feel like in home.
Big food variety and really tasty. Large and beautiful hotel territory. Staff, omg, they all so friendly. I think we should interact with others as we would like others to interact with us. Just need to smile to them and they will smile you back. . Animation team just amazing. They are so energetic. Everyone involved in the activities, even the laziest guests. Shooting, darts, dancing lessons, aerobic, water gym.. A lot of activities. And everywhere animators work with smile. They try to make your holiday special. They always helps if you need. All workers at hotel want to see you happy and try to do everything to keep you happy. I really liked this hotel. And I hope to return back.

I traveled with my sister in february for a one week stay.We stayed in a garden bungalow and it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.Breakfast was really good with plenty of variety and everything freshly cooked.
Recreation staff very good especially Mohamed who always has time for the guests regardless of age or ability.Bar staff Abdul, Ayman and Ahmad are always very polite and helpful. A special thanks to Karim from the diving center so polite and helpful nothing was to much trouble, exceptional staff. We had the best glass boat trip.
Best hotel in Hurghada and we will definitely be returning .

I traveled with my husband to have a relaxed vacation in a decent hotel but this is not a 5 star hotel, its maximum 3.5
Cons:
The staff is very unfriendly except for the waiters at rhe restaurant
The food is average good but poor for a 5 star hotel and there was no variety
The bungalow we stayed in was big and not bad although the furniture and finishing
were poor compared even to a 4 star hotel, and also not completely clean, and the room service wouldnt change the soap and bath ameninities unless we asked
Pros:
Diving center staff was nice and the prices were very reasonable, we went on a diving trip and had so much fun on the boat
The hotel is big and theres always an elextric car to drive you around, and its all covered in green areas and flowers which make up a good view to wake up to
The everyday shows were good and enjoyable

I've visited this hotel many times and every time I want to come back. It's a beautiful hotel with a lot of things to do. A nice place for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing or join the many activities every day like yoga, shooting, dancing, aqua-gym, dart etc. The staff are all very friendly and make a great effort to make all guests feel happy. Especially the managers in the restaurant and the animation team do a great work making you enjoy your stay. Karim, Sheeko and Essam are amazing entertainers, they make funny activities for the guests and the dance shows they make are very good.
The hotel area is located 20 minutes away from the city, but I don't think that is a problem. My family go there to relax in the sun, diving and snorkeling. And for this purpose the hotel is perfect! And because of the distance to city there is a private coral reef accessible directly from the beach. The hotel area is big and beautiful with flowers, lake, private beach and a huge pool area. It is a little bit worn, but the it seems like they are already working at improving the standard of the hotel, building new restaurants and bars.
The only unfortunate thing is that more and more Russians have discovered the hotel, which means that there are way too many Russians!

Room Tip: The bungalows are good if you like more privacy. The sea view rooms have an amazing view.
