Dear Mr. Hossam! Many thanks for your nice feedback and that you took a time to write about your impressions. You are right The Desert Rose Resort 5* is full of advantages. Concerning the big territory (that can make the walking longer) - many guests find it like a big advantage too. We have a club car available upon request on the Reception that can pick the guests to any place inside the hotel. The Pharmacy is available outside the hotel just 50 meter from the main gate. We are very happy that you have extended your stay. Hope to see you again at your "second home".
Best regards, Hotel Management

First , I want to thank all staff member who made my day.Special thanks to Mr. Onsy (Disk manager), Essam(Main Bar),Morad and Katy(animation team),really you are very helpful.
Do not miss Aqua Park, you will enjoy sliding and have fun.Room is clean and spacious .Pool is clean and the Life Guards are alert.The beach and lagoon are charming.The animation team is very funny and they smile all the time.The only defect is the food (not tasty or variable ) however ,forget the food and enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: choose pool view

Generally good hotel. Food is above average. Rooms are average. Good animation, kids zone, so it's nice place to stay with your children. The sea is good, but if you really need perfect sea, go to Dahab.

The hotel in general is very nice and contains fantastic views.........this is my second stay at desert rose , hurghada

I have read in trip advisor many complaints about food aqua park and some other complaints about the services and behaviour of some of the staff of the hotel
1)The food is nice and delicious , drinks are always available

2)The aqua park is fantastic ,it contains 6 different slides ,and the sound of the whistle of the life guard is noisy but it's important to make people safe and to avoid injuries

3)The rude behaviour of some of the hotel's staff is very rare ,but the hotel management must advise all the staff to behave as well as they can

Animation team (space zam) is awesome especially (Kiera) who always keeps smiling :) ,he is always interested to entertain us
I really enjoyed this journey <3 fantastic week
