“Good Sunshine Break”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for two weeks (arrived 24th dec). The Hotel is not very British orientated but the room was good and clean, powerful hot shower and fresh towels daily.

The weather was excellent, we largely sunbathed for the full 14 days. The chaps at the beach are excellent, without the necessity to tip, they provided us with a good bed everyday were pleasant and friendly.

The beach bar and indoor bar were good, we mainly drank red wine and gin which were both ok. Note order wine by glasses we made the error of asking for a bottle with dinner on our arrival, the bottled wine is chargable.

The breakfast restaurant was limited, we had omlette or crosissant mainly but it is geared toward the russian tastes.

The beach bar served burgers, chips, pizza and lots of salad which was fine for everyday eating. there is a shopping mall nearby with a big supermarket which we visted twice, its cheap with lots of variety, although you cant buy alcohol and we missed the option of having a glass or two in our room as we like to.

The evening meals are best in the Italian restaurant which is included in the all inclusive, you usually had roast beef or chicken, potatoes, veg and pasta options. The best food on the whole however was in the Oriental which is part all inclusive part paid (90 egyption pound each so twenty quid ish for both of us) for unlimted egyption style buffet and unlimited alcohol, the food was really good there and the service excellent. Its a real shame the main restaurant was not better, the service was poor and the food just simply not up to scratch, it looked good but tasted very bland.

This was a good relaxing break but do not expect little england as it does feel very 'foreign' if you like. The hotel reception staff were not particularly helpful and spoke little English so i do sympathise with anyone who had any specific issues, we had a trouble free holiday though and would definately go back. We only spent the equivalent of £300 and therefore it was a very cheap christmas break.

I am not sure I would venture far outside the hotel, on our short trip to the mall we witnessed a pickpocket outside, although he was quickly brought to task by his victims!, the outside is a very poorly developed area and i sensed a level of danger but perhaps i was just being a wimp!, the hotel is heavily guarded though and we were made very comfortable by the bar and restaurant staff as one of the very few english couples there.

We dont have children, but it seemed that there was lots of entertainment for the children there and they seemed constantly entertained.

Overall a good holiday, a basic but good hotel, food needs improvement but is overall good given the type of hoilday. We would also praise the hotel for the efforts they put in to the New Years eve dinner, that was really very good.

Just returned (4th Jan 2013) from a weeks stay at this resort and cannot praise the hotel and staff highly enough. We went as a party of 9 people (5 adults, 1 teenager, 3 kids) and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the holiday. The resort itself was spotless, the staff were the friendliest I have ever come across and the food was wonderful, plenty of options to choose from - best of all, the weather was fantastic. Dont hesitate to book a holiday at this resort it was fantastic.

We, Mr. Nasser Mohammed and Alina, (room 6701) are back in Holland and want to thank you very much for the unforgetable stay we had in your hotel.
Special thanks to Ass.Head Waiter Mohammed Ali, Night Manager Mr Hussam, all the waiters from the terras and the Lobby Bar, especially Moustafa M. made the holiday perfect for us!
Also special thanks to Restaurant manager Mr.Abdu, who put our table down every day as soon as he saw us coming in so we wouldnt have to take the few steps up.
Hope you remember us, Alina on her little red scooter and her lovely prince, the talkative and always smiling amu Nasser :)
We will join you in the future, we will be back !!

we travelled to aladdin beach resort hurghada on 18th dec 2012. All was ok until we didn't have any tranfers pick us up we were a group of 11 although one did not travel. 3 of the group were picked up and we were left stranded.

Upon arrival to the hotel nobody wanted to know!

After 10 days of our holiday the management summoned one of our party with her husband and and daughter to reception. She was then told that she had not paid for her daughter of which was a load of rubbish as she had all the documentation to prove this. The hotel would not listen and then asked for $987 dollars of which she refused to pay on top.

She was then lying by the pool and security came to summon her once more to the management. We had talked to the rep by this time who did not help one tiny bit. Telephone call after call we were getting nowhere so in te end she had to pay 500 gbp or else they would remover her and take her passports. It was like the mafia. Nobody helped us at all and this caused 10 people to have their holiday ruined of which was nearly 10k worth of money.

Low cost holidays assured her that this had all been paid to the hotel but they would not listen.

The food is very poor and the alchohol is worse in this hotel so we hardly drank or ate anything anyway. If you are russian you will be ok at this hotel.

We went for a two week all inclusive break in November. We had a nice holiday. The room was tired, and the bathroom in need of a revamp and TLC, but everything worked. There was a big television in the room, a shame it didn't have any English channels. Like most hotels in Egypt it was full of Russians. It is the middle of three sister hotels, the Alibaba and Jasmine and you could use the facilities in all of them. We liked the Alibaba restaurant for breakfast, the Jasmine pool restaurant for lunch and the Milano restaurant at night. The main Aladdin restaurant got extremely busy and we were unimpressed with standards of service. Tables weren't cleared quickly meaning you often had to eat looking at dirty crockery. Standards weren't great either when it came to dress codes. One lunch time we were put off our meal by an elderly man who was allowed entry wearing only a vest and pair of boxer shorts which were so full of holes they left little to the imagination. The food was okay and there was plenty of choice but the desserts often looked better than they tasted. There was always meat and fish available and we both felt the food was decent for the class of hotel. The room was cleaned daily by a very hard working chap. Entertainment was poor and aimed at Russians and football fans. There was a busy animation team offering the usual poolside activities. The music was too loud for us at the pool and they really need to update and change the tape.The heated pool was lovely. It was like getting in to a warm bath. The beach was nice and there were a selection of good beach and poolside bars. Service was generally good, always better when you tipped. Most waiters at the Milano worked hard but there was one who had mastered the art of doing very little. We took advantage of the free bus to the Marina a few nights.

We were shocked and saddened to see the hotel had a "zoo", a sorry collection of animals including monkeys and dogs. This might appeal to people lacking a moral compass but we found it distasteful. We are not animal experts but the conditions looked very poor. This might have been socially acceptable when the hotel was built but it really put us off the place and for this reason we wouldn't go back.

We were there for 2 weeks, my Girlfriend and I, and it was a very nice holiday. The hotel is good, inclusive the food and all other possiblities.

In the main restaurant we met a very nice person, who was working there as a Head Waiter. His name was Ashraf. He does his job very well, and gives his best.

Unfortunately there are a lot of russian people, who take so much food, that they have to throw the half away. This is a reason that al the waiters are often mad. But as soon as they see that you are other nationality than Russian, they threat you very nice.
