Comfortable and cozy hotel
We stayed at this hotel 22 July 2012 – 28 July 2012, so the impressions are very fresh ! At reception we asked for room with Sea View – and they gave us that room without any hesitations. All was working well in the room, room was clean and nice. If you leave to cleaner guy 1-2 $ per day your cleaning service will be better, he changes bed sheets every day and makes wonderful figures from your towels. Mini bar in hotel room is for free – included in ALL Inclusive system of this hotel. There are 1 bottle of sprite, 1 bottle of cola and 2 big bottles of pure drinking water and each day hotel guys refill it. Also there are electric kettle in the room, cups, saucers and spoons, black tea, coffee, creamers, sugar, diet sugar.
All inclusive system works 05:00 – 01:00. The main restaurant “Le Shapo” has Light breakfast 05:00-07:00, full breakfast 07:00-10:30 and dinning time 19:00-23-00. What I liked about this restaurant is that at the breakfast cook makes omelet especially for you, upon ingredients you choose yourself and very quickly and tasty. There are many varieties of baking there, sweet and not sweet. Anything you choose – with sesame, zira, powdered sugar, strawberry, cinnamon, lemon, poppy and all of them are very tasty. Pastry, cakes and tortes were also fantastic. Especially I liked pastry with cut apple jelly on the top. Also I liked there orient white cheese- it is good to eat with salads. Also they serve on this open buffet packed white plain yoghurt, which is very healthy. Also what I liked was dried plums there. Each breakfast they served melon with grape, apple and oranges.
Beach restaurant “Makadella” is open 12:00-18:00. If you put your plates with food on the table and go to open buffet table again, you can find your meal is being eaten by birds. So somebody should always sit at the table or do not leave any food without supervision on the table. There are many varieties of meat served - fried, grilled, baked. And also fish – grilled fish, baked or fried. And the same about chicken. French fries were also tasty with ketchup and salt. Also they make shaurma - grill some meat, put it for you in a bread and you can add there whatever you want else- tomatoes, onion, cucumber, lettuce, French fries, mayonnaise sauce, ketchup or mustard. Also I was impressed by Pizza. All the guests who wishes can order by cook Pizza with the ingredients the guest chooses himself. They make this Pizza quickly and tasty.
For people who are on diet and cannot eat oily or fried meal – there is Healthy Corner. In this healthy corner all are boiled or fresh – for example boiled fish, boiled chicken, boiled vegetables and fresh vegetables- grated carrots, leaves of lettuce, sliced cucumbers. That is really good facility for people who are on diet.
Italian restaurant “Pikollino” 18:00-23-00. In this restaurant, the cooker also makes Pizza according to guest personal choice and besides Italian spaghetti also. Also this restaurant suggests to guests salads, sweets and drinks.
“Sea Treasures” 19:00-23:00 (the menu of this restaurant is for extra charge). In this restaurant we did not eat. We just once came to check what they had in Menu and the prices, there was sea food such as fishes, shrimps, lobsters and the prices were not very expensive. Even somewhere outside in the city it can be more expensive but not cheaper – the same price or more expensive in the city. This restaurant is on the beach side looks like a ship. And I think that would be good for pair who was looking for romantic privacy, because there were only 2 pairs except us. And if you want to order dinner there you should make a reservation one day before. We expected to go there but that was enough for us with all the other restaurants in the hotel.
Orient coffee “Dandasha ” 19:00-23:00 (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). There we smoked shisha, the price for one shisha is 1 $. Also they make natural very aroma coffee and mint tea. And the relaxation was so good on oriental cushion in that cozy oriental Shisha corner. Near this corner there are also 4-5 different small shops – where you can buy souvenirs to your friends and relatives. As the hotel is in the desert and for the nearest city is about 30km so that is a good opportunity. And show time scene is also near the “Dandasha ”, so somebody is watching evening show program in amphitheater and somebody relaxing with shisha on cushions.
Drinks in Lobby 09:00-01:00. In Lobby barmen make good cocktails for 1 $ each – for example you can order Mojito, Blue Curacao or fruit cocktail. And barman makes the big cup of cocktail with ice and fresh natural ingredients. Also they suggest natural very aroma coffee. And all the guests can make tea themselves – there are black, green tea, anise tea, mint tea and milk.
And about the sea. There is an island near the hotel. You can swim near the hotel in calm lagoon – fishes are not so many there. Or you can go to the end of this Island and snorkel there – the fishes are lots of, BUT it is very dangerous – because below, where you step are sharp big stones and waves are so strong and that was difficult to move further to the sea, several times I tried to walk to the sea but the wave pushed me on sharp stones and I cut arm fingers and palm and hurt my legs. Sometimes it was difficult to choose what I am going to do – to go further or to come back, both were very difficult to do. And sure there is nothing to do without special shoes for walking in the sea which protect foot from sharp things. These shoes you can buy in hotel near Lobby, behind the reception desk, the price is 5 $ . Several days we struggled for our lives like this to snorkel and I cut my arms in many places and closed the cuts and treated with medical glue and finally we found other solution – if you are not afraid to be tired or bored to walk 10-15 minutes left side from the hotel along the beach, you can go to pier which you see the first one – left side (not right side, it is closed). So there morning time ship takes divers and bring them back evening time. But anyway when you snorkel be careful and do not swim far away from the pier and keep yourself proper distance away if ship arrived to pier or is going to departure. This pier has 2 stairs to the sea. It is very convenient to come to the sea and to see many different fishes, corals and I saw there huge turtle and skate fish.
Hotel stuff is very attentive to guests. Three times per day hotel manager knocked our room door and asked if everything was good and working. Sometimes he came alone, sometimes with electrician. We told yes, everything is good working. But they decided to change cable in toilet phone. And next time they changed TV antenna socket, even we did not have any complains. Maybe they comes every time because it is very often in the hotel power off and they are watching for anything is not be spoiled because of this power off, it is very short time – not more than for 2 minutes usually, but sometimes very often. TV, air condition, light, fridge switches off and after 1-2 minutes work again, after 3-5 minutes can again be switched off, it is several times per hour like this. It will be good if one mobile phone you keep somewhere in bathroom, otherwise you will not see anything suddenly washing yourself, shaving, brushing and etc. and feel yourself helpless when electricity is switched off in complete darkness. I hope the hotel will solve the electricity problem very soon for guest feel totally good.
The swimming pool is without chlorine smell and that is very pleasant!
Animation team is very active and funny; we did not take part in anything. But we saw people enjoyed too much to take part in some games with animation team.
In general I enjoyed the vacation in this hotel and I will be happy to come there again and advise you to visit this hotel also!

I just came back from a vacation in this hotel. Unfortunately I was really dissapointed from the hotel. Below are my concerns:
- A lot of insects and caokroches found inside the rooms.
- AC was not working at day one.
- The outdoor restautant where we have lunch was a disaster due to the non control of birds who are eating with us. Due to this, my wife got sick and we called for the doctor.
- Maintenance is not properly done as the doors are twisted and insects are coming to the room through the gaps between door and door frame.

Honestly, i will never go again to this hotel.

Room Tip: Always choose first floor rooms only.

Firts things first :)
Pay your visa entry in Stirling its the cheapest way.
Dont buy Egyptian pounds in England you get a better exchange over there and you can buy anything you want in our currency anyway :)
The holiday whether your in the Azur Club or Azur Royal are all inclusive and you can visit either,
You can eat in either
Drink in either
Watch the entertainment in either
Use either swimming pools.If you are not happy with what is on the menu at your hotel then just walk 200 yards and visit the other and no one will question you, there are no arm bands.
Dont worry about being met by You travel who handle the transfers they are there at the airport and are very organised.
The service at the hotel is second to none Ahmed Ezzaldien a young waiter who keeps the lounge area clean looked after us very well and can speak good English, I told him I would mention his name here.
WHATS FREE?
Everything in your mini bar which is fizzy botlled and water.
If you need some cows milk for your tea making ( they supply powder ) ask the barman and he will be happy to give you some.
Table tennis, Pool
Safe deposit is in reception ( yes FREE )
Even the peddlar boats are free.
There are other attractions on the beach which you will pay for but not sun beds, these are free everywhere.
One thing I did not like; there are camel and horse rides on the beach and the animals look like they are not fed properly so I did not ride them and I told the arab guy why I would not, so if you feel the same as me please tell him so.
The beach is great, very flat, safe swimming but it can be windy so they have wind breaks.
One thing you must know....... The beach restaurant is on the beach and open so there are lots of birds, if you get your food and put it on the table, then go for your drinks your food will be swarmed by them so get your drinks first :)
Ice cream is available at this restaurant all afternoon at no extra charge.
The only thing I dont know about this place is the air/con, it is managed by the hotel which I have always found to be poor but I do not know if this place is the same as others.
We were met by Mohamed Tokky the Thomas Cooke Rep, he is very helpful and we did the trip tp Luxor with him which was an eye opener and very well organised.
Any questions I am happy to help, just email me.....lesnicholls@blueyonder.co.uk please put ( holiday ) in the subject as I usually delete most emails that dont have something I recognise :)
Good luck
Les

The Hotel is very and wonderful. No need to make snorkling outside the hotel as they have an island with corals and coloured fish where u can make snorkling and take photos.

The only bad thing was the airconditioner, it wasn't working good, that was our only complain everyday.

But overall the Hotel is really amazing, and i may go there the next year.

You should try it ;)

We had excelent time in Azur Club, hotel was clean and smart, rather quiet place for relaxing. We had many oportunities to go for trips for Cairo or Luxor, to desert, from this place, so didnt mather of hotel distance from Hurghada. Maybe it is positive, because there was not noise or loud music as we could see in Hurghada. Clean servis was excelent, without ordinary cleaning, they prepared a funny things from towels /swan or heart/, or pot of fresh flowers. And food was rather good, everybody could choose whatever from ordinary european food to special oriental kitchen. And we had lunch on the beach restaurant, so we couldnt go to hotel and got fully dressed. Beach was rather good, not excelent not bad, there were two kinds of beaches, " clasical sand beach" with swimming without water shoes, and part with coral area, for excelent snorchling, there is better to have water shoes. A little problem was slow connection on internet, which was in hotel hall, it was better to connect early morning or during the day, but it was not problem for us, we wanted just relax..And every evening they had programmes in hotel amfitheater, there were performances of local culture and dances. We were really enjoy with hotel and all this beautiful country with its ancient , positive energy, nature and sea life, we are planning come back ASAP :-))

The hotel was pleasant - pure, cozy beautiful. The personnel quite normal - I will not tell that very affable, but also not rough, accurately carry out the duties.
Room service at level, clean purely, change linen regularly.
Territory beautiful, compact, well-groomed. The sea and a beach – is good. A reef – it is excellent. A food - not so various. It is not enough fruit and fish.
In territory one pool. Therefore from any case nearby to pool, restaurants and a bar. Nearby Rojal Azur is located. It is possible to take a walk and in its territory. Animation basically in French.
