Citadel Azur Resort
Ranked #71 of 222 Hotels in Hurghada
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The hotel was amazing could not fault anything. The food was exceptional really good choice and quality. The staff couldn't do enough and were really friendly and helpful. This must be one of the best hotels in Hurghada. Went for New Year and would go back.

I've just returned from an 8-night stay at the Citadel Azur Resort where I spent Christmas with my husband and my Mum - we had a terrific time!
The hotel did an amazing job of ensuring that Christmas was a 'celebration' (the extensive array of decorations, food and entertainment were all excellent!).
Whilst the hotels' lobby, restaurants, pool areas (in fact all common areas) are beautiful, unfortunately in our experience (we had 2 x deluxe rooms in building 6) the rooms are a let-down as they are sparse, basic, cheaply furnished and not very comfortable. E.G. The beds are bricks and the pillows are lumpy foam!!
The hotel staff, at all levels and in all locations in this extensive resort were brilliant - very friendly and highly efficient.
The animation team did a wonderful job of mingling with their guests - providing an atmosphere of fun and laughter (but they were not 'in your face', forcing you into doing anything that you didn't want to do!). Their entertainment shows were varied and very well executed.
On the days between Christmas and New Year (when no specific events were planned), the all-inclusive food was really good - varied (to suit all tastes) and very edible (too much so - especially the cakes and puddings!).
Health and Safety is a concern in some parts of the resort - stairs poorly maintained (with crumbling concrete and no handrails) - best to take the Taf Taf bus around rather than risk falls by walking on uneven surfaces and/or falling down a poorly maintained external staircase.
As the resort is very isolated, there's not much to do other than relax and enjoy all that the hotel has to offer! Be aware that as there is an abundance of flora in the resort (which is lovely), there is also an abundance of mosquitos so take a powerful repellant with you or suffer the consequences!!!!
All in all, the Citadel Azur is a great location to relax and enjoy the sunshine!

Great hotel with an amazing view of the red sea. The staff is very friendly. The layout of the hotel is very unique over a down slope of a hill overlooking the red sea, gives every room in the hotel an excellent view. Food is excellent, with variety of options and there is always a local cuisine corner on dinner. The hotel is very quite and peaceful, the lighting at night sheds a peaceful atmosphere over the hole bay area where you can truly relax. Great facilities; gym, pool, kids corner...etc.

This is an expensive hotel, but you get what you pay for.

My wife and I have just returned from our honeymoon in Egypt. For the latter half of our trip we stayed at the the Citadel Azur. The hotel was about half full during our stay and yes it was about 95% Russian guests, with the odd German, Dutch and English couple. However, anyone wanting to travel to the Red Sea don't let the number of Russians put you off. This is an amazing hotel, where you can do as little as you want by one of the 3 pools or 2/3 miles of beach, or participate in one of the many activites that are set up. The food is very good, with a range of resteraunts to chose from. The staff friendly and always helpful, a great stay and we look forward to taking our daughter there in the not so distant future.
