Firstly, this hotel is very close to the airport, my girlfriend and I left the airport in a mini bus and we arrived at the hotel within 10 minutes. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist (Hossam) and another member of staff took our bags and we met him at our room. The hotel is very clean and all the staff were so friendly throughout.
Breakfast was great, there were a variety of pastry's, fruits, juices and they did all sorts of egg variations. Dinner was great too, there was a choice of 3 main's each night, usually chicken, fish or beef, and you also got a starter (soup), a plate of salad and a different desert every night.
Chilling by the pool was great, the pool seems cold but once your in its fine, however- if you are looking to lie in the sun till late, the hotel will block the sun, putting all of the poolside in the shade from 3pm ish. This was fine though, because after a day of sun that was the last thing we wanted.
The hotel has links with Iberotel Aquamarine, a 5* super-hotel with everything you could want, it was around £4.50 per person which included use of hotel facilities (pool, beach etc), a free drink and travel via mini bus each way (11am- 5pm).
In Hurghada all the beaches are private but the hotel offer a discounted price (£1.50 per person) for a days pass to a very nice beach (Old Vic Hotel's beach).
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved the incredibly friendly people, whom could not cater to your every need any more. We loved the large, spacey apartments with great air conditioning and 2 balcony's. We loved the fact it was a 10 minute walk into town or 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket. Hossam and his crew of employee's were the most amazing people we met out in Hurghada (we met loads of people) and you will more than feel at home staying in this friendly and calm hotel.
