Having read some of the English reviews (we do tend to have similar standards!) we panicked a bit. Particularly as we booked this as it was a "bargain", £3k all inclusive in the school summer holidays for the 4 of us felt cheap to us anyway. We have read the trip advisor reviews and concluded they are reviewing a different hotel.

Firstly, this hotel isn't a 5*, so don't expect it to be. I'd put it at a very good 3*, bordering 4*, only because the rooms do need a lick of paint and TLC. Dangerous though, as some reviews suggest? Absolutely not.

Food: plentiful and delicious. There were numerous types of food and never once did we go hungry. Strange that there was no butter for any meal other than breakfast though. Some of the Egyptian stews were absolutely fantastic. They could do with more pasta and pizza chefs though, as there was always a queue which got frustrating when other nationalities aren't as queue-tolerant as us Brits.

Pool: it's everything you need in a pool, although the early-bird catches the sunbed. If you leave later than 8am you've got no chance, but the sun is lovely and warm even that early so just start the day earlier.

Bars: bit odd that they funnel everyone to the lobby bar on an evening. Why couldn't they leave the beach bar open later (it closes at 5).

Rooms: we had an older room and nothing wrong with it. Yes, the bed is uncomfortable (but if you want your own mattress stay at home!) but was clean and shower was powerful (and tall enough for me at 6ft 3, which is unusual in Arabic countries).

Beach: the beach is nicer at the sister Aladdin hotel, but it's literally right next door and thing stopping you from using it.

All in all, a cheap 2 weeks in the sun was requested and was what we got. Our kids loved it, no one got ill and we all came back in one piece with some great memories.

Got to say Ali baba is one of the best hotels I’ve ever been to! I felt very welcomed when we first arrived even though it was very early in the morning. The staff are very lovely and are always happy to help. During the day there are lots of things to do for children and adults which is very good and fun. The pool is very very good and has lots of space for everyone. Darts is my favourite and is something to look forward to every day! The animation/entertainment team are very friendly and just amazing in general. Alex is absolutely hilarious and crazy and genuinely doesn’t fail to make anyone laugh or smile. They all work very hard to keep us all happy so we have an amazing holiday! Aqua aerobics with Alex is very well done and is always a laugh. Daniel, Alex, olesya, Eva and everyone else are very funny, kind and just an absolutely brilliant entertainment team. The rooms are very good and clean! The water park is amazing! The entertainment at night either done by the animation team or other groups is always incredible and mostly hilarious. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is wanting a spectacular holiday to remember forever. I really didn’t want to leave! Everything was absolutely amazing and I wouldn’t change anything!

Food is really same everyday... We stayed for 2 weeks and last days were horrible -we knew they will have same bolognese, pizza or tasteless (chicken, steak). Maybe there are 3 restaurant but everywhere theres same shi...! Moreover there are dirty glasses served to the guests....Pool is really small for these amount of ppl... always problems with lodgers... We received really old, disgusting room, so we wanted to change, that costs 8 pound per night more. We paid for romantic dinner that was about 34 pounds(!!) and we had only chicken and some veg worth less than half a price...
Entertainment for adults is really horrible, they need to send ppl to hard rock cafe to center of hurghada for good party... but in hotel - 8 o'clock Mini disco for children, even music is the same every day. 10 o clock - silent, everyones dead.
Everyone wanted tips, but the quality of their job is really low. I would advise you guys to not come to Egipt haha
