We have just returned after a weeks stay, overall we were very happy with this hotel, our room was number 420, on the second floor at the far end of the hotel, fantastic view of the beach and beautiful bay, the room was very clean and well equipped, cleaned and fresh towels daily, plus points: free safe, air con and fridge which is stocked with water, coke and sprite on your arrival for you to use free of charge.
The food is ok, not the best we've had in Egypt but we didn't go hungry, it is buffet style, breakfast was best for me, freshly made omelettes, there is quite a good choice with the usual continental feel, lunch and dinner very similar hot and cold choices and a good choice of desserts. All inclusive drinks until midnight.
All the staff are very very helpful and yes at first they do greet you in German but when they realise your english they converse very well, and make a fuss of you, I didn't feel like they were lecherous( as i read in a previous review) at all just friendly and liked to have a laugh and joke.
The hotel is in the middle of the desert and no public transport, hotel has a very helpful chap, Mustafa who will organise taxis to Surfaga and Hurgharda (€30 each way) or mini bus if a group of you and works out cheaper, also trips, we went to Luxor for the day, interesting but be prepared for a long day.
The beach is great lots of beds and sunbeds, free towels provided daily via card system, beach boys will look after you bringing you mattresses for your bed, 2 beach bars so not far to walk to either but the waiters do regularly come round taking orders, we even had fresh fruit 1 day. The snorkelling is very good although the sea was a bit rough some of the days so probably not as good as it could have been, we took our own equipment but the hotel does hire it, if you want to go diving the next hotel along the beach( coral gardens) has its own dive centre.
The hotel has a shop which stocks soft drinks, snacks and gifts, it is pricey, but you can barter. Water is provided free at the outside pool bar 1/2 litre bottles(another plus).
If you've done your homework and read these reviews you know that this hotel is very out of the way, 1 hour at least from the airport, not really much to do for children, there is an animation team which try and get you to do some activities but not to pushy, it is a hotel mainly booked by germans and if the lack of manners doesn't really bother you then apart from that its great and we would defiantly go back.
One last thing if you have not flown into Hurghada before you do have to pay for the visa £13.
