“another great holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Third time back and again a brilliant time.This time we had a suite with whirlpool on roof and the rooms were amazing.We were looked after really well the food was better this time from the time before and it was good then.We had our own cabanna which was good and the beach is nice and the sea warm.The reviews that said awful things about everything must have stayed at a different hotel as I could not fault anything.Can't wait to go again also nice to see the staff there from before like Ahmed and the waiter that works on the private beach he could not do enough for you.And equally if you are expecting not to see any Egyptians in Egypt you're probably on a different planet.

Room Tip: If you want a treat go for the suites with whirlpool such big rooms two bathrooms no 702 is great

Tbh, I was a little worried about coming to Egypt with the current political crisis going on, but please don't be alarmed! I've felt 100% safe, tho this hotel is soo amazing you won't want to go outside anyway!
I'm in room 259 sat on my balcony, overlooking the beautiful beach, enjoying the peace! The room is immaculate, pristine, well kept...
I've dined in all 4 restaurants here, all are amazing... Also next door, in the Asian, ( not so good sadly) the food is faultless here.. good inclusive wine from the bottle, friendly service, not tried the fish restaurant yet, which is not part of the AI package.
To sum, this place is WoW, classy for a AL, not a holiday camp for chavs! Enjoy ...

We went in September 2013.Never go back and id never recommend this hotel. It was a waste of a lot of money. As only British people were being allowed to travel there it was full of Egyption people and food, entertainment, music was all mainly aimed towards them. In the week we were there there were many complaints from brittish people because of this. The hotel its self was lovely but service in the rooms was not very good, towels were forgotten a few times after our rooms were cleaned, waiter service was not very good. Egyptions seemed to be constantly put first. As we were leaving we had staff admitting that the food and entertainment had been aimed at the Egyptions. I have never felt so un relaxed on holiday. It felt like we were invading other peoples holidays. Felt so uncomfortable and couldnt wait to get home.

Pros.
Staff working in the Reception and the main Restaurant were very professinal and friendly.
The architectural design of the resort is very nice
Food was great. Animation show was nice at night.
Cons
Room was not clean at all, dead insects were spotted daily in the room, furniture is exhausted and old. Plumbing connections broke down twice in two consecutive nights, the staff working on the pool and the retaurant by the beach were rude and were checking out everylady that passes by. Worst beach in Hurghada. No corals and sea water is not clear like at any other resort in Hurghada. Staff would give you one towel for the whole day to use by the pool and would't exchange it for you unless its totally soaked. Didn't spot anybody from the animation team during the day.
I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

I had stayed at Sunrise Grand Select Crystal Bay Resort last week. My stay at this awesome resort was for only 4 nights, but really I loved the place very much. The staff was more than professional and the services were excellent too. My wife and I had stayed very enjoyable, lovely and unforgettable vacation there. We loved our room so much and the food also was delicious. Really we intend to repeat our visit very soon. I would like to send my greetings to the hotel's wonderful staff and wish them all the very best.
