Wonderful big room facing the lagoon-the best really! Staff wonderful and sweet. Beaches are nice and if you take a lagoon room you have app. 10 meters to the water! Food very boring, "international cuisine". La marina has a small pizza counter-the pizzas are nice!Would I go back? Yes if they make the food better! Sophie

We love Arabia Beach!
Arabia has fantastic situation with two lagoonas and lovely sandy beach.Huge swimming pool,little for the litle ones in mini club.Food is very good.Around is a few nice restaurants.Our favourite is Barbeque at swimming pool with delicious arabic food and for lunches Marina Restaurat by the reef.Did not like just Italian Pizzeria.People in Arabia are very pleasant and helpful.Service is excellent! Arabia is situated directly by the beautiful reef.Rooms are clean however in part B a liitle bit too much used and need some work.On the other side views are better from lagoon B than A...!
Beside Arabia, in the same complex of buildings (together with Bel Air and Iberotel Arabella) is lovely "souk" Ali Baba Market.
Plenty of bars.We met there a lot of people who return there again and again.We want to be back ASAP!

My name is Margret and i visited hotel arabia beach second time with my son Daniel, first time three years ago. It was such nice week we spent, this time with new years eve-party, and we had so much fun with the people there. Exspecially the animation team gives us many reasons to come back, because it happens, that we took part of the comedy-shows in the teatre nearly every evening, and continue making party after it in the hotel disco "taboo".Thanks a lot to the whole team for it!!!!!!!!!!
Also EVERYBODY in the hotel was so kind and frindly, so that we are still so sad to go back to germany.
We arrived last night and saw the video from new years eve party, i could not stop laughing!
The food was also excellent, big hug to all the people,
WE WILL COME BACK

Hi there, since I really enjoyed this site for planing my NYC trip this march ( I already posted for Metro-Home NYC ) I want to post some information for other users that might be helpful.

I usually travel once a year for one week to Hurghada for scuba diving with some of my club-mates from my scuba club.

For the last 6 or 7 years we stayed always at the Arabia beach b/c we were very satisfied with this hotel.

1) Hotel
it is a relatively big hotel with more than 500 rooms but for real it is even bigger b/c a part of the hotel was just named for a different hotel, the Bel Air.
It is a 4 * hotel based on egyptian standard wich you have to consider when you compare it to western standards. The rooms a comfortable sized with two Double beds, air condition, refridgerator, sat.-TV, and a large (for a hotel ) bathroom with a tub . Some rooms have an in room safe and for the ohters there is a safe provided at the reception free of charge.
The rooms are cleaned daily and the roommates will honor if you leave then 1-2 LE Bakshish (less than 50 cent)
Breakfast and lunch comes in several restaurants as a Buffet wich is OK but not spectacluar.
You have the possibility to dine at "Villa Kunterbunt" with your room card free of charge for certain menues or recieve a 20 LE discount on your bill when dining a'la carte. (beverages not included)

I cannot say anything about day-activities than scuba diving b/c wee leave every day early for diving and come back late afternoon.

But I definitfely can recomend the Hotel for ppl. who like just to lay in the sun. Try to request a room on ground level to the lagoon side. There are lagoons built from the sea into the complex so if you have a ground level room on the lagoone side you step just out of your balcony door and you are right at the waterfront.

2) Scuba diving

A really great place to stay for scuba divers b/c it has an integrated diving base, the "Blue Water Dive Resort" which has been elected by the readers of a German diving magazine for best scuba diving base at the red sea.
It is not allowed to post a URL but when you type "blue-water-dive" in google it is the first hit.
The red sea has really great diving spot and especially Hurghada has a great value compared to other diving spots in the world.
Special for this hotel is that it is one of very few hotels in HUrghada that has its oen coral reef right in front of the door. This is great for snorkling or one or two dives. For frequently diving I defintively recommend the boat trips.

If you are interested in scuba diving ask for a room in block A, wich is closest to the base but for all others the blue-water provides a Pickup-shuttle service from the main entrance of the hotel.
(But from anywhere in the Hotel it is not more than a few hundred meters [or yards ;-)])

Me and my diving-mates return to this spot this year in September so if there are any changes I will post them.
