Steigenberger ALDAU Beach Hotel
Ranked #4 of 221 Hotels in Hurghada
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I did spend a week at the Steigenberger Al Day hotel (2-9 November 2012). It is really great hotel just by the beach in Hurghada with its own dive center, several restaurants and a great pool area. I had an all inclusive stay at the Al Day and it was good except for that I several times did have to ask them to change the glass they gave me because they were not clean. Rooms are good, silent area, food fully okay and I managed to spend the whole week without enjoying a bad stomach - that´s a good thing when visiting Egypt. The dice center was really good. Super friendly people and experienced.
If I would recommend this place to my friends? Yes for sure - it is well worth what you pay for.

Room Tip: Only a few rooms are not with a view to the sea, make sure you do not end up in one of those.

My wife and I have just got back from 5 days at this hotel, the standard of this hotel is excellent.

Rooms are brilliant, service brilliant!

The first time I have been to a hotel where they have staff going around the pool and beach cleaning your sunglasses, they also give you cold flannels.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: 93% of rooms have sea view

i just return from Steigenberger couple of days ago, everything was amazing, staff was smiling & very helpful & very hospitable, also service was so perfect, the resort was soo nice, atmosphere was so beautiful, The pool is magnificent But the 'Lazy River' wasn't that great!! only one thing is terribly bad there THE FOOD !! its very terrible, no taste, no variety, i guess in my next stay i'll ask them for Bed&Breakfast boarding, we had to go out everyday for lunch & late dinner as its good quality with fine prices, another thing i don't like is the animation team i guess they're too lazy, otherwise the resort is so amazing, This is the best hotel I ever stayed in at Hurghada.its really perfect

I was 2 there with my husband.
Both times was all we wanted a week of nothing to do, being lazy in the sun and getting pampered. And it's exactly what we found there.
All employees are very hospitable, the food is good and the drinks are cold.
Our absolute favourite was the lazy river. If you're lucky you even get served a drink while floating on a big rubber tube :-)
It's definetly worth booking AI since it's not that much more a day and saves you thinking about costs.

Room Tip: you definetly want sea view. there are only very few rooms facing in land. but since there is a main...

We stayed at the Steigenburger on 14 and 22 Sept, 2012. The Resort is very nice, the rooms spacious and well equipped, and it has a beautiful beach front atmosphere. The water off the Resort is NOT very conducive to walking in, as it is rocky with sharp stones and corals.There is a 2.5 km walking track that on the property that is quite relaxing. Lots of nice beach chairs with shade structures and little drink booths to visit. The pool is magnificent and the 'water river float' is great!!
The food at the resort is very good, and the breakfast buffet is VERY extensive, with everything that you could hope for and eggs. waffles, etc, to order. We would suggest that you do the all inclusive option if you plan to stay there, as the lunch and dinner buffets are quite expensive. We had the Breakfast Buffet, Moroccan dinner, Italian dinner and Lunch Buffet and all were quite good.
Get out and walk for the best shopping and lower priced food. The Steak House Restaurant, about 300 m to the right of Steigenburger has great food! The shops along the way to there have a better selection and prices than staying in the Resort. We learned this fact a bit late in our visit.
If you want to do the Sinbad Submarine Trip, DO NOT book it in advance on the Internet. The price is TWICE what you can get it for if you book in the Resort Lobby.

Room Tip: Try to get a room above the check-in Lobby for the best view of the beach front.

This Hotel is one of a kind, it is a place were the staff knows how to spoil the guests. The hotel is vast with big swimming pools, long beach, and many restaurants. hey offer all inclusive stay, however I see no reason for it as the premium paid is too much, you can enjoy additional meals and drinks in addition to your half board stay and still pay less. The kids club is very nice, so is the mini disco, you can ride bikes, indulge in the wild river, or just have nice swim in the pool. This is the best hotel I ever stayed in at Hurghada.
