Ok the pipes outside are being relayed so no path or much road. Went AI plastic cups for drinks CHEAP alcohol n pop. Always found something to eat at the buffet but not good standard of food for brits think they cater for russians.Hotel needs updating decor ok but needs touching. Comps n internet a joke. Some good entertainment but only when it ran and they didnt think how to entertain other than put music on. Found some staff good n polite thought others had been trained in the local jail. Only 10le to marina would go there to eat and drink enjoyed it in friends bar. All in all VERY hit n miss. Good location just need toget standards better Basil Faulty would be at home here!

Room Tip: Would not stay in 101-106

I dont understand why people are so harsh on Minimark. If they want 5* hotel go and BOOK 5 STAR HOTEL and stop moaning! I have stayed there for over a week and I couldnt complain much. The hotel is nice and cosy. Swimming pool is a good size and it's just by the sea with clear and warm water. We've booked room with sea view but unfortunately we were also just above restaurant so during dinners we had to smell bbq. Barman was so nice. Didnt really have to ask him for another dring, he was just pooring. Drinks were indeed rather watery but if you could get proper drinks from the bar inside the hotel. The airconditioning didnt worked properly and beds have been little hard but we wasnt bothered that much. There is a big range of trips like diving, safari, Cairo etc. We have used all of them. The only one minus a could find is the size of the beach. Its not that big and from one side there is a fence. Also dont use doctor at the hotel. I was sick (usual arabic sikness, vomit etc) and he wanted me to undress!! just go to the pharmacist oposite the hotel and they will give you very good and cheap pills.
Great food, meat, salats, fish, fruits, plently of egyptian dishes and sweets

If you want to use all trips call Fatima at +20149582445. She has a huge choise of trips.

Dont be fooled at the airport! the highest price to get to the hotel is 30!! we have paid 50 plus another 50 tip as we wasnt really sure how much are average prices. Shame, shame on us.

The Minamark is a low budget all inclusive. consequently the majority of the guests are there to eat and drink as much as they can within the time limits allocated for the all inclusive. It's the kind of hotel where you can quite comfortably wear a tracksuit for dinner and blend in. Food was not bad actually, breakfast was the usual eggs, bread pastries, fruit etc. plus eggs cooked to order. Lunch usually 2 choices of meat/fish plus accompaniments. all hot and tasted good. we did not eat dinner in the hotel as we are not a fan of buffet meals and prefer to try local restaurants.
Drinks available at the pool bar are served in small plastic cups. a few mililitres of rough local spirits are handed over for you to add your mixer from the dispenser of local brand soft drinks. There was a lobby bar which we chose to pay to drink at (prices were pretty reasonable) although only a handful of other people chose to buy drinks there even after the all inclusive finished at 10pm. Consequently the barman Remon who was really very nice and friendly had little practice and took an extraordinary long time with much faffing about to make any but the most simple drinks.
We had an issue with our room on check in, we were given a twin instead of a double despite being assured it was a double. we asked to change and the reception tried to dissuade us saying the only double he had was very small and not a nice room. We looked at it and it was perfectly fine. The balcony was so small it was unusable but seeing as it was december and chilly this wasn't a problem, so we changed. cleaning was good. the only issues we had were with the bathroom where the shower was rather feeble and alternated allarmingly between tepid and scalding hot.
Staff are not overly helpful with the exception of the barman Remon and the head guy in the restaurant. Guest services were also very helpful. Staff at reception were almost surly and quite blank looking at any request for assistance for information.
The location is excellent if you want to be in the centre of town. From the hotel entrance you can walk in either direction for about half an hour past shops, bars restaurants etc. The new marina is also about 15 mins walk away.
All in all, ideal as a base from which to explore the town, good for breakfast and lunch with the intention of eating out and spending evenings elsewhere.

The greatest advantage of MinaMark got to be location right in the city centre. We were lucky to get good room [ ask for 530 when you check in :) ] unlike our friends who ended up changing rooms twice. The beach was clean but finding free sun beds after 7am was virtually impossible. Swimming pool that we were spending most of the time is bit too small, needs good clean not to mention occasional smell of sewer coming from somewhere. Briefly about the rest: food repetitive but ok, service good what can't be said about evening entertainment. One gets impression that this hotel struggles to manage full capacity. Despite some enthusiastic reviews I have seen, I would rate this hotel between poor and average and to be honest I would not like to stay here again. If you are looking for basic accommodation and want to enjoy night out in Sakkala, that’s the place, otherwise choose another hotel

This is the first time that I have felt that I must provide feedback on a holiday experience, or what I would refer to as a "Holiday from Hell". I recently visited the Minamark Beach Resort in Hurgarda, being rated a four star I thought that it should be of reasonably high quaility, based in experience on seven visits to Egypt in similar rated hotels, how far wrong could I have been! When I booked in the UK I paid an additonal charge for a superior room with balcony and sea view, on arrival I was issued with a first floor room with a patio door with no safety rail or balcony - VERY Dangerous for anyone, it was immediately refused and was then issued with another room with no outlook whatsoever and what I would describe more as a prison cell, again I refused it, eventually I was issued with the room which I had paid for, the quality was ok, but cleanliness was very poor. The room had satellite TV, but only two poor quaility english channels, therefore might as well had not had any TV for the viewing quaility was more like a snowstorm.
There were two restaurants included in the package, however im not sure if they can be described as restaurants, the food quaility was so bad I would not feed it to my dog; the variety was no better either with the same selection day in day out.
The entertainment was no better either with repeated low quaility "sexy lady" games night in; night out, well thats to say you had to go out or go insane.
The hotel is described as a beach resort, well the beach is man made, very narrow and would be described more as sunbeds in a back yard; with access to a narrow shoreline, definately not the usual standard of any Egyptian hotel.
In summary I would NEVER EVER return to this hotel and would not wish it on anyone.
