Stayed with 2 girlfriends in Feb 2020. From booking to checking out the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the whole stay.
The restaurant team including Mahmood and George particularly were charming, entertaining and ever cheerful! The food was delicious and varied and the cakes were simply addictive.
The animation team, in particular Foxx, Laysan, Mamadu and the young man with the "hair" were totally professional. knowing exactly how much encouragement to join in the daily activities was enough without ever overstepping the mark. Laysan was great company to a group of all females - lovely, warm and genuine, and a deadly stretching queen!
Thanks to all for a completely memorable and fun holiday - we are already planning to return this year and I would also consider a solo visit as I felt so secure there.

Room tip: fith level rooms overlooking the marina are quiet and out of the sun

We have recently returned from a winter sun break to Hurghada, and stayed at the Continental Hotel. As the flight and hotel deal had been a reasonable price we were not expecting much, but we were wrong - This hotel is fantastic value for money, is well located in a safe tourist area, has its own beach and very high standards.
Before we arrived we contacted reception to ask them to link 2 seperate bookings and they saved us 2 rooms next to each other and were really helpful in arranging a car to pick us up from the airport (the flight arrived early but the driver was alreaady there waiting). Check in was smooth, reception staff were polite and helpful and our rooms were very large and well equipped with everything needed. During our stay we used the spa (the massages were good and helped my friend with her back issues), the gym and the pool regualrly although there are other facilties such as tennis courts, table tennis, pool / snooker, volleyball if you want them.
We stayed at the hotel on an AI basis but were really impressed by the quality, range and quantity of food available (at mealtimes and also pizza / snacks during the day). We had a really cheerful and polite waiter, Mahmood Adel and the catering was well managed by George, who is so helpful he even arranged for us to be given the recipe for our favourite cake (the cakes are soooo good!) We also ate in the El Dente Italian restaurant which was excellent and also included (but we had to pre-book).
Throughout the day and evening the Animation team are all excellent, in particular Mamadu (we were so impressed by his display of walking / lying on glass and nails with people on him one evening), Foxx and Laysan, but they are all polite, professional and encourage people to participate as much or as little as they wish, without pestering or being overbearing. There is loads to do during the day if you wish, such as stretching, aqua aerobics, belly dancing classes, water polo, volleyball etc all provided by h=the hotels team free of charge. Even if you dont want to participate the Animation team are all very friendly - we were a group of women together and Laysan in particular (as there were less female staff around) was particularly welcoming and genuine; made us feel like she was a friend we had known for years.
The only area for development for the hotel is the internet - wi-fi is best in the lobby, although this can be 'patchy' at different times - however I m not sure if this is an issue throughout Hurghada or this hotel. Never the less, overall we were really impressed by our stay - not only the hotel is good quality and offers a great range of food, entertainment and facilities throughout the day and night, but also all the staff are friendly, polite and accommodating. We are already looking at booking another trip later in the year, possibly longer than a week as we were not ready to come home!

Room tip: Most rooms have a view of the sea, all are large and well equipped

We visited in December 2019, we have stayed at many hotels in hurghada but thoroughly enjoyed everything about this hotel, staff were amazing, food was delicious, drinks were cold!! Everywhere was clean and very well maintained. Kamel and his boat team on the hotel beach cant speak highly enough of them. Had a great day out with kamel on a speedboat was like being out with an old friend...strongly recommend this hotel. Sharon & kev

My wife went in Hotel Continental, several years in a row prior to me joining her this winter.

We had a great stay. Weather was fabolous, hotel is very nice. A bit rustic but it has its charm and it shows that hotel staff is putting a lot od efforts to provide great service. Lots of compliments to the management team and look forward to visit next year.

We spent a nice relaxing week in the hotel. The room was nice and spacious, the beds very comfortable and large. The food was good. Service very good and always very helpful. The German guest manager is always on site and always available for questions. Animators constantly do something different and a different program every night, just great! Pool area very clean! The beach is close and easy to reach. The airport is 10-15 minutes from the hotel. And there is also a shopping street in front of the hotel.
The vendors on the beach are a bit annoying. But if you don't want anything, leave yourself alone on the next tour and just say hello. All in all a great vacation!
