“disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

I know everyone has different expectations, but to me that the hotel was disappointing.
The beetles were running corridor, the rooms were close to the sea, but there was no one to see or the sea.
The restaurant smelled stinky cat.
The dishes were nicely served and everyone is upset your stomach.
There was a waitress who saw us, "that we're cool terrified of loud guests who csurdultig took the plate and then the quarter was not a" we are always looking for a quiet table and he was very kind to us.
The weather is very favorable in Egypt, the sun is always shining, but I'm very dusty, never rains.
Cairoi trip was very tiring, but worth it to see the pyramids.
The museum is huge and dusty Egypt, where the museum would be, 'said the boy.
You really ruined the whole country, you can not tell the houses that we have built or crash.
Men desire to return, but once you see the pyramids should be for everyone, wonderful.

Room Tip: there is no good rooms

Our party returned from two weeks all inclusive holiday at this hotel on 12th October. we booked through our local travel agent and requested two upper floor garden view rooms, on arrival and after our unwelcome encounter with poor English speaking and unhelpful reception staff we were shown to ground floor rooms with a view of a high hedge. We changed rooms the following day and looked forward to an improvement in our holiday, unfortunately the situation worsened, the small stoney beach did not provide safe access into the sea, the meals were prepared to suit russian guests, the bar staff were rude and unhelpful. Animals frequented the dining room, the Main dining room was shut down for four days mid holiday, and meals had to be taken in a tent on the beach or in a small poolside restaurant. Midway through the holiday we had no hot water for four days after complaining every day it was finally fixed. This hotel is not suitable for British guests please beware.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Like friendly welcoming staff, nice restaurants, sandy beaches, clean rooms, fine wine... Don't go here! However if you fancy an under developed resort, rude argumentative unwelcoming staff, dirty floors, broken safes, unwashed towells, a room with a view of a playground, a Russian girl wearing a Santa outfit in August, concentrated squash or cheap beer, Rocky beaches and a whole lot more look no further! Only people whom are interested in Russian butlin/ concentration camps should go here! We lasted 12 hours before leaving!

We spent 3 entire weeks @ Aladdin; so call us the experts. Ha!
If you can ignore obnoxious Ruskies, electricity that falls out a minimum of 15 times a day and keep up with on the spot fluctuating exchange rates .. then Resort Aladdin is the place to be!
To eat - go to Aladdin! To swim - go to the Jasmin beaches (no rocks)! Great pool? - go to Ali Baba! Yes, 3 resorts and you can eat, drink, swim at them all.
We enjoyed the beach parties,the seafood (á la carte) shows and ofcourse the entertainment/animation @ Pergola.
Beware though: drinks @ beachparties are all-inclusive until 23:00hrs and also @ Pergola they stop serving drinks by 23:00hrs. After that you pay!

My wife and I spent 28 nights in the Aladdin Beach Resort Hotel in Hurghada.The hotel, CONTRARY to unfavourable reviews, was without a doubt the CLEANEST we have ever stayed in.Being the sister hotel situated immediately between two others,the Ali Baba,and the Jasmine.Of the three the Ali Baba was the most expensive and the Jasmine the cheapest and probably the worst of the three but very good value for money.Facilities at all of the hotels were open for use by guests at all of the three hotels.Restaurants,of which there are plenty,swimming pools,the Ali Baba pool is amazing,entertainments,festival evenings every Sunday at all of the hotels,so you you always have a choice,and whatever events that were taking place every day.I have to make a point of the cleanliness at all of the hotels.They are kept spotless.the rooms are cleaned and four fresh bottles water was left in the room by the cleaners each and every day.The grounds in all the hotels are kept immaculate and swept and tidied every day.And!, would you believe!!!,the beaches are swept and raked every single day.Hurghada is fifteen minutes away and courtesey coaches to and from, are provided by all three hotels free of charge in most cases.A trip to the Marina in Hurghada is a must and all of the hotels organise evening trips to there every day and evening at a modest charge.There is a multitude of international restaurants and bars and for the ladies,shops galore.If you want buy silver, gold or jewellery and gifts,Cleopatra offer the best of everything at fixed prices,so no haggling.All of the gold and silver is hallmarked and comes with a guarantee.Gold and silver items are all sold by weight,so be very careful and be sure to ask the price before considering buying.
There are lots of various tours and trips to choose from, and all them are fully recommended, but be sure to check your insurance before going on quad bike trips.During the time we were there,three people suffered serious injury and two of them were not properly insured, costing them a small fortune for operations and treatment.SO BE WARNED, CHECK YOUR INSURANCE TO SEE IF YOU ARE COVERED FOR SPORTING OR MOTORING ACTIVITIES.
I cannot emphasise enough the friendliness of the management and staff at all of the three hotels, and the friendliness of the Egyptian people in general is exemplary.Sure you get hassled in the Hurghada shopping areas,but it is all very friendly banter.And as is the case everywhere,treat them with respect and you will be treated likewise.One last word of warning, do not buy cigarettes or tobacco from street sellers and be sure that the smokes in the hotels are genuine.Your best bet is to buy your supply from duty free or buy them on the plane.One other word of warning,especially to those with small children,don`t visit Egypt during British summertime because the heat at that time in Egypt,is unbearable.The best time to visit is between October and April when the temperatures are more temperate and similar to our warmest British summertime temperatures.Above all have a great holiday,My wife and I are more than sure that you will,especially if you like constant gauranteed sunshine.

Room Tip: Try the bungalows at little extra cost and do not be afraid to ask for a change of room because the...

On arrival my husband was refused entry as he is Egyptian, (Be warned don't book with travel republic), after showing marriage papers, UK visa etc he was finally allowed in, much to the disgust of the manager (front of house).
The room was spotlessley clean and spacous, the air conditioning the best I've known anywhere in Egypt. Thanks Mubarak for your cleaning skills.
The Main restaurant Agrabah started off poorly, not the food but the staff, they were unwelcoming and unfriendly. Apparently most of the staff were new recruits and not particularly well trained. Mohamed Ali (Assistant head waiter) came to our rescue and on our second visit things had improved immensly. The food was consistantly good, through breakfast lunch and dinner. The choice somewhat limited but all frsh and hot.
The Italian restaurant and pool bar were very efficiently run adn the food again was very good, fresh and hot. Mohamed the pool bar waiter remebered everything we wanted so we didn't even have to ask.
The beach bar serves wondeful burgers for those of you that don't fancy getting dressed, it is run by Captain Mohamed, who was extremely professional and friendly. The servicew was always prompt and efficient.
We chose to use the Jasmine beach, the sand is much nicer, it is about 5 yards from the Aladdin beach.
Entertainment was mainly directed at the russian guests as there were many more of tham than any other nationality. If you walk over to the Ali Baba hotel, 5 minutes the entertainment was in English, very good shows most nights.
The discos at both hotels mainly cater for the yonger guests, which is a shame as most of the youngsters go into town for the well known clubs. I counted over 20 older guests (like me) walking into the disco and walking out again, the music was very house? Garage? not sure just a heavy bass that all sounds the same.
The Alibaba reception and bar are also a lot nicer as they are well air conditioned, unfortunately the Aladdin lounge bar was hot and mostly not very clean, dirty ashtrays everywhere. If you do not want to walk over to Alibabas then really the only comfortable place to sit in the afternoons should you want to read etc. is your room. Aircon turned off in the lounge bar during the late afternoon and then turned off again at 11pm even though the bar does not close until 00.30, the doors are also left op-en all day allowing the heat and flys in, which makes the poor aircon even less effective.
The outside bar and shisha area were staffed by a group of very friendly waiters, especially thanks to Mohamed..... another one :o)
One of the nicest things that I noticed were the cats, I have stayed in over 20 hotels throughout Egypt and this was only the 2nd one I have seen that did not have any rats or coakroaches, well done to the manager, there were quite a few healthy well fed cats patrolling the grounds both day and night. They opbviously do thier jobs very well.
All in all very pleased with everything..... part from the fact that there was no english television to watch only bbc world, every other language had both a news channel and an entertainment channel. I like to watch TV in the afternoon when it gets too hot to sit on the beach.
Thanks again to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.
