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.
