“WARNING - beware of "towels mafia"”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

On the both beaches of SeaGull Resort and Club hotels operates "towels mafia". Employees in white polo shirts labeled "RECREATION Life Guard" on back instead of observing swimmers rather browse around sunbeds and focus on unattended towels lying on sunbeds. If towel remains unattended for a while, they take it and returns back to exchange personnel. Mostly are stolen pairs of towels at the same time. Any reclaim is hopeless. Later the guest (according hotel rules) must pay 100EGP (circa 14USD) for each stolen towel. Keep in mind that 9 stolen towels represent average monthly earning in Egypt.
Hotel is occupied mostly by Russian clientele which degrades its cultural level. Wine or hard drinks are often served in plastic cups. Long line waiting for plates, cups, meals and seats can be eliminated by later coming to food - when Russians leave restaurant. Food itself is very good, but sorts are repeating during stay.
Arrogance of some Russian guests can unpleasant whole stay.
Part of receptionists prefers Russian language and disregards English spoken client.
Forget free wifi - fee is 2USD for half or one hour (depends on receptionist) and wifi isn't always available.
Hotel amenities are consistent with their age, but clean. Some new equipment were bulit lately e.g. slides, mini ZOO, shisha tent. The staff (except receptionists) is friendly and hardworking.
For guests requiring quite environment for sleeping earplugs (protectors against noise) are necessary.

This hotel should be torn down, rooms are terrible and above all noisy. There is no way you can go swiming there.If you would like to have nice holidays avoid this at all costs.
The tactics are first they give you a bad room and leave you there, then after you do make problems, they chage it after you spend two/three nights in a worst room possible. Full of Russians.

Very large, old rooms, dirty walls, damaged furniture, very repetitive menu, animators pushy, sometimes rude. A very large beach and the pool, it's easy to find free space for sunbathing. I do not recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms can be with overlooking on the street or the hotel patio

Very nice hotel, i was here in 2007 and also in 2013. It's clean, the food is all right, the beach is even better than before. I recommend it. The service is poorly than 5 years ago, you have to pay for the internet, but at least it's working properly.

Sea Gull consists of three part: Old Sea Gull, New Sea Gull and Sea Gull premium all joined into one resort. The Old Sea Gull is renovated with a huge and nice reception hall. The New Sea Gull is ok but not so pompeous. The Sea Gull Premium is small and looked a bit more luxurious but I am not sure. They all serve the same food.

THE POSITIVES:
- good location in the very centre of the city
- small but nice beach
- live music every night at the dinner
- a clinic with a doctor and a nurse speaking English just in the hotel (unfortunetly had to see them)
- beach volleyball
- helpful staff
- good diving centre (recommended)

NEGATIVES:
- horrible and repetitive food (although I am not choosy)
- the overall equipment of the resort and seemed to be quite outdated
- prevailing Russian guests


We chose the hotel because of its central location and reasonable price. After coming there I realised we did not need a central location because there is not much to see in the City of Hurghada. The main street is crowded, there are many shops selling the same goods and annoying local people jumping into your way and trying to sell you something. Therefore, I find it not necessary to have a hotel in the centre. I would be better to have a nicer hotel outside the centre and take taxi to the city centre once.

I really liked the Hurghada harbour though. It is very nice and romantic with plenty of restaurant with a sea view. This was really worth seeing.

Room Tip: If you give some tip to the receptionist on check in (we gave him 10 euro), you can ask for a better...
