“Hotel earned its 5 stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My husband and I decided for this hotel in very short time (from idea to go to Hurghada to realization was few hours) and we spend 3 days in first week of January. Upon arrival (we came little earlier than check in hour) we were offered welcome drink while waiting to see whether there will be any available rooms soon. Before check in we were offered to see the room and only after I saw the room and agreed on it they prepared it for us. Room was clean, functional and equipped with everything we needed and if we wanted sth additionally, staff was there to help.
Since we primarily came to relax, we spend most of our time on the beach (weather was warm and sunny enough even for swimming and sunbeds and towels for the beach were included in price) and in the hotel health club (separate building just opposite the hotel main entrance with steam and Finnish sauna and jacuzzi). Both, the beach and health club were very good. And, anyway, there is not much to see in Hurghada so having nice beach is important. :)
We especially enjoyed having breakfast on the (sunny) terrace - great variety of food and everything was delicious (my husband was overjoyed after realizing that they prepare for breakfast waffles on the spot). Dinner was also in buffet style (we payed additionally for this - the price is better if you take it for more that 1 day), not so great as breakfast but still with enough different kinds of food and sweets.
Knowing Egypt (sanitary and health) standards I have to say that this hotel was definitely above average and even better than some European 5 star hotels that I've been to.

Room Tip: My husband and I were in room 648 - great view over the pool and bay.

Nice clean rooms, sea view (all rooms have sea view) and tasty breakfast. We had a corner room with very large balcony and two deck chairs - it was wonderful!. The staff was very friendly. It has a private beach which is quiet (music is turned on only while happy-hour in bar, but it was not noisy at all).
The only con we found - one day they forgot to clean the room...

The hotel location in Hurghada is good and the meals are worth the effort of waking up in the morning. The rooms all have an ocean view but unfortunately are tired and old.
I had food posioing from my Nile Cruise and noted that the toilet was never cleaned throughout our 4 night stay - this is even more depressing when you ill and cant venture far from the room. Also they refused to accomodate me or friends for breakfast when we were to weak to go down to the included buffet and refused to allow a slice of toast or tea to be sent upto us - this was an additional cost. On the last day, I was so weak and could not even make it to breakfast or any meals and we had to order a slice of toast - multiple slices were sent despite my request for single toast and I was charged for all slices.

This hotel is past its sell by date unfortunately and needs more empathy.

Dear Zar01,
Warm greetings from Sunny Hurghada! Many thanks for posting your recent candid and honest opinion of our hotel, all feedback is extremely important to us, investigated and corrective actions are made when necessary. We are happy to hear you like our location and breakfast! And we are so sorry that your condition didn’t allow you to enjoy the sun over our pool and private sandy beach. Checking about your good self concern about bathroom cleanliness, it is by Marriott standards to clean rooms everyday we even have a night refresh service, we only don’t if the don’t disturb sign is on, or the guest requested not to clean the room, we are quite sure there is a misunderstanding in this matter, appreciate contacting on lamia.sherif@marriott.com to have your full stay details and investigate further. Looking forward to receive your good self e-mail, and booking your next stay with us to give us the chance to prove our standards and offer you a memorable stay!

An excellent stay. Nice clean rooms and excellent breakfast. The view of the sea from the room was superb. It had lots of activities for both adults and kids. The staff was very nice and friendly. It has a private beach which was not very crowded.

Why come to Hurghada? The weather - always sunny - and the beautiful transparent sea are the main reason, so you might as well have direct access to the beach. This hotel has a sandy beach directly in front of it. It is not too far from the airport; supposed to be central but there is nothing going on nearby. However there is a small supermarket very close and some shops and restaurant a bit further.
I suggest going for half board because the dinner buffet was really worth it, and the restaurants in the street didn't seem appealing.
There is free wifi (limited time per day) only at the café next to the pool.
Another tip: if you want to book a boat trip like Giftun, don't hesitate to ask a tourist shop in the street. The price offered by the guy at the hotel was almost 3 times higher and the trip ended up being postponed because not enough people signed up.

The best time to go is October to December. End of November it was 20 to 28°C outside and water was about 24°C, still warm enough for snorkelling without wet suits.

Room Tip: Most rooms face East (sea) but if don't want the sun in the morning you can ask for a room facin...

We stayed in the Mariott apartments for 3 days. It was a last minute decision to go to Hurghada as well during our stay in Egypt and we picked the apartments because they were amazingly cheap for what they are. When we arrived, we were not disappointed at all. At the check-in desk everybody gets a non-alcoholic welcome coctail drink, that is very yummy. The apartment was very big for the two of us with a huge balcony. Although we stayed in the apartments and not the main hotel, we could use all the facilities of the hotel. It has a very nice private beach that has a small island as well. The water is very clear and has an amazing colour.
We got a wellness treatment in the spa (that is not free if u just want to try it out:S ) and it was very nice also. The stuff is quite friendly...I would recommend it to everybody and if we come back one day to Hurghada, for sure we will have the same choice!

My wife and I had some very relaxing days in this Hotel.
The Hotel itself is nice, the sorrounding area rather not. Very nice artificial island.
All staff were very friendly and serviceable.
Especially Magdy in the Buffet Restaurant was always very friendly, ready to help and kind.
He's certainly one of the reasons that will make us remember our stay with fondness.

Room Tip: not 6th floor - it's way too loud
