We booked a last minute half term holiday. Check in was a bit of a nightmare as so many people arrived at once. We got a large room in 2000 block close to a pool and the playground so my grandson was ecstatic. Only downside was that we were woken up by kids playing football at 7am outside our patio doors. I don't get up that early for work!
There were people from all over Eastern and Western Europe and that made it more interesting for me. All the cleaners were men and I felt the room was only superficially clean but the sheets and towels were clean so I'm not going to make a big issue of that.
Service in the restaurants was a bit hit and miss but the staff work so hard so I'm not surprised that they look harassed for much of the time. The food was okay. I normally love kebabs and kofte etc. but by the end of the holiday I didn't care if I ever had them again. Some food was strange e.g. mashed potato at breakfast but we always found something to eat and never went hungry. We loved the Jazz coffee bar and the Colonies bar. The drinks and staff were great!
The animation team worked really hard and were good fun. Night time entertainment was scarce and a bit hit and miss. The main draw here is the hotel's aquapark. There's something for everyone and it really is great. One draw back is you have to walk a fair way for food when at the aquapark and it would have been better to serve snacks near the bar.
We had a great time in Hurghada, the weather was great. We did have an invasion of locusts on our last day which wasn't vary pleasant but I would recommend it for a great family holiday.
