“Lovely hotel, Great Architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

- The Citadel is a lovely hotel. Especially for couples without kids.
- Spacious rooms, well maintained.
- Food is really good, especially the a la carte restaurants, Italian/ Brazilian.
- Lunch might need some improvement as every day was more or less the same.
- Personnel was really friendly and helpful.
- Good entertainment (except external shows, those were bad, intenal shows were great).
- The park is really large, so there is even a shuttle bus to drive you around. -
- Free internet in the lobby, but the connection is terrible, this should definitely be improved.
- Location is quiet, but we love that. Buildings are beautiful.
--> Hurghada was quiet, no notice of the political issues in Egypt.

Room Tip: No room tip, as all rooms have seaview. Make a note when you want a room with a doublebed. Other tip...

The best vacation ever! Hotel is just amazing,it's like little town, you don't need to go anywehere. Great services, nice and polite staff, good food. If you don't feel like buffet dinner you can choose from three restaurants. Live band is playing every evening (in english). We really enjoyed our stay, it was perfect :)

I went this june with my family we really enjoyed our stay the resort was really nice, we were happy with our rooms i do recommend 3001 and 3002. They were connected rooms near everything the pool the main restaurant and the theater. But you will have to walk pretty much if want to go the royal lagoon beach don't worry ... There is a taftaf runs every 5 min

The staff welcomed us really nice specially especially Emad on the beach bar and Amr in the main restaurant the food is average and the drinks as always is local but don't expect too much in all inclusive basis, all over the place is magnificent.

Certainly, i would like to go again

I stayed at this hotel from the 14th May -21st May 2013 and we had a fantastic time!

The room was in Block 6 which is about a 10 minute walk from the reception! Staff took us to the room in a golf buggy with our luggage!!! The room was large and spacious. We were on the top floor and had a beautiful sea view from the large balcony! The room was clean! The bathroom was massive and there was a large power shower! Our room had a hallway and a walk-in wardrobe!!

The food in the hotel was excellent and lots of choice! There was a themed night in the main restaurant each evening. We also ate several times at the Italian restaurant which was lovely!! We visited the Brizilian restaurant once which served a selection of meats which was also nice!! The drinks in the hotel were amazing, if you like cocktails there is a wide variety of cocktails served at all the bars, including the beach bars!! The beers and wine were also very drinkable!!

We spent all of our time on the beach!! There are mole sunbeds with umbrellas and windbreaks!! There are also clean toilets and a beach bar!!

There were several pools dotted around the hotel and one was an infinity pool! The hotel had its own small harbour with a restaurant in it and an ice cream shop which is part of the all inclusive!!

There is free wifi in the reception area, which fairly slow but more than acceptable for Egypt!!

The only down sides I can think of are!! There were no other English people in the hotel, lots of Russians and Germans!! The staff were slow with the service at times!! During meals times they were slow to replenish food and cutlery on the table! Howere it seems to down to poor supervision rather than the staffs fault! The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport which is good, however this is nothing to walk to nearby, no shops or bars!! However due to the hotel being so nice and spacious it didn't effect us!! None of this issues really effected us and we had an amazon time!!

The grounds of the hotel are vast and there is a bus that drives around the hotel taking guests to reception!! I would not recommend this hotel for people who don't like walking or hills or for people with children!!

Overall I had a fantastic time and I would return!! I would recommend this hotel!!

Many thanks to Phillipa and her staff for making us so welcome. A beautiful room with stunning views, service and amenities. The "Night Club" and all inclusive drinks were a definite plus. We were only there for one night but crammed in two wonderful days.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms they all have a view of the sea.

This is a beautiful hotel in a stunning location we had a lovely room which was clean but the food is poor and often only luke warm and the service is often non-existent. The restaurant is buffet style there are alot of chefs and supervisors standing around looking very important but they do not do anything just walk about looking (at what I don't know) you are not greeted as you enter the restaurant you have to look for a suitable table yourself - the staff were unhelpful unfriendly and miserable (all except for Mohamed who really looked after us when he was on duty - when he was off duty we were ignored!!) . We had chipped crockery the table, the table was not cleared between courses-one night all the dishes from our three courses were still on the table when we left the restaurant - there are other restaurants in the resort which are marginally better but still not I would call good. Having read the other reviews I am wondering if we stayed at the same hotel!!!!
