“We had a great time”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We were somewhat anxious about our stay having read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. The rooms we were initially offered were not of the standard we had expected but we were quickly offered alternative rooms by the management and these rooms were lovely.

The food was always fresh with lots of variety and the management and staff throughout the hotel were exceptionally helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Yes, there were lots of Russians staying and they wasted lots of food in the dining room by having 'eyes bigger than their tummies' when it came to helping themselves at the buffet but they did not in any way detract from our enjoyment.

The snorkelling off the beach was excellent although the management should provide signs pointing out that guests should not stand on the coral reef which we saw several people do - in order to protect the coral of course but also guests could receive some nasty injuries depending what coral/creature they stand on. The sun shone on most days throughout our ten night stay but the winds were really strong on occasions - not really warm enough to sit out in the evenings without jumpers etc.

The resort probably equates to 3 star rating in the UK but the magical location on the reef and the wonderfully friendly and helpful staff make us want to return again next Winter.

This was my second time in this hotel and I can't believe, how nice the staff is: helpful, smiling, sincere, friendly.
I want to especially thank the Animation team (Dida, Julia, Lena, Ahmed, Sayed, Anja, Jamaica), who made me feel like at home: always smiling, making jokes, playing sports, talking to the guests, being nice and friendly, sincere.
The food was great and the hotel is improving, lots of palm trees and plants, very nice beach.
I totally recommend this hotel, if you don't want a big crowded hotel, instead of that a home-like, little resort.

Room Tip: Corner houses/rooms are newer and it's quieter.

Me and my partner came for my birthday last year but felt the need to write a review. I loved every minute here, couldn't complain about anything. But we did upgrade the room and it was defiantly worth doing because it was really nice and very very clean. The food was nice. The deserts wasn't that nice they had the same taste just different colour and shape. The pool was clean and weather was perfect. The only downside was the Russians :( #horrible!!

I am sorry but I will not return to this hotel, 4* defiantly not ,the location is good beach is lovelly the room itself was dated couldn't see the view as the windows were filthy.
The main reason for this review is the restaurant " shock horror" it has 1 tea coffee station I had to sieve through 20 cups to find 1 that wasn't chipped or cracked even stained. The stains on the station were not recent even scrubbing wouldn't remove them. The walls in the restaurant were all stained the windows haven't been cleaned for months. The restaurant is a massive let down for this hotel needs a complete overhaul. The food was edible but mainly catered for Russians.
The entertainment team were good fun in fact everyone was helpful and polite nothing was to much trouble. So please sort your cleanliness out as it is a priority .

My family and I have stayed at this hotel twice during peak season and I returned once on my own in November 2013.

The Hotel is in a stunning location with access to a beautiful beach and great snorkelling. The site is laid out nicely and each room is bungalow level. The grounds are well kept and there is easy access to all amenities.

The main building and bedrooms are in need of some attention and updating.
The bedrooms are very spacious and nicely decorated however the older rooms need fixing up. On all visits, the housekeeping team have been friendly as well as efficient.

The main reception area is well kept but unwelcoming. The indoor bar and sitting areas are lacking in comfort and in need of attention. Drinks are often served in plastic cups which is not what you would want in a 4* Hotel.

The main (all inclusive) restaurant is a hive of activity. It’s very busy at mealtimes and during peak season you will often have to wait for a table.
The staff in this area work very hard however there is not enough of them to keep up with demand therefore waiting for tables, crockery, cutlery and drinks can happen often.
The food is in good supply however lacking in variety and taste.

The main pool area is spacious but can get busy and noisy. There is another, quieter pool area but the pool bar there is unattended so if you’re thirsty you have to go back to the main pool! The sunbeds are rusted and in short supply and the quieter pool is not as clean as the main pool.

The beach area is vast with plenty of space for guests. Snorkelling here is a must! There is beautiful coral at the end of the beach and the shallow area is suitable for non-swimmers too. Staff at the aqua centre here are friendly and helpful and there are plenty of activities you can get involved in.

You will get some disturbance from those walking around during the day selling services. While some will be considerate others are more persistent!
Currently there is a high volume of Russian and Eastern European tourists in Hurghada and this hotel. This can be frustrating for those wanting a quiet holiday as their culture can be loud and rude!

The Animation team are unwelcoming and useless unless you are young and attractive. They themselves tend to be noisy around the pool/beach area and are unimaginative with their day activities and evening shows.

This Hotel has a lot of potential however in its current state I would not rate it 4*.
I feel the management of this hotel has been lacking and it shows in the detail.

Having said all of this, I have visited 3 times and would return again. There are 2 reasons for this. Firstly the location as I mentioned above and secondly, the operational staff. They really cannot do enough for you and will often go out of their way to accommodate you to ensure you enjoy your time there.

During each of our visits we have had some issues (some more serious than others) that needed attention however these were dealt with in a polite and professional manner – and promptly, mainly by Ahmed on Reception. His service was excellent where his Manager was incompetent with guest relations.
Both Ahmed and Hossam who work on Reception were most welcoming and very efficient; Hossam in particular went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable during our family stay and when I returned alone, made sure I felt safe and at ease.
In the restaurant, although the food is not to standard Chef Sabry was most welcoming and attentive to many guests.

All in all, I would recommend a stay at this hotel but probably best in quieter months like October/November. The surroundings are relaxing and you do receive good service from operation staff however do not expect 4* accommodation or a variety of food.
