My wife and I just returned from a 4 day stay at this hotel. Although we are Egyptians, and we go to Hurghada several times a year, we had never heard of Cascades before. we were planning to stay at Steigenberger Al Dau -we stayed there a couple of months ago- but a friend recommended Cascades and we were game to try a new place.
when we arrived we were met by a young lady called Ester who was extremely sweet and helpful. she escorted us to our room which was quite spacious, very well furnished, had a large bathroom, and a nice balcony overlooking both the beutiful golf course and the sea.
we were on a half board basis, and my experience with open Buffet is that usually you get edible food and that's it. This was completely different. Everything I ate at dinner was excellent especially the duck. Breakfast was also excellent especially the shakshouka (Egyptian style fried eggs with tomato based sauce) and the pastries and bread.
The swimming pool was quite nice, and if you are a swimmer you would enjoy doing laps in the first three lanes. The gymnasium -though small- is very well equipped, and the spa is amazing especially the aquatonic course. Moreover if you are a golfer I am sure you would enjoy the golf course which for a non golfer like me was quite a pretty sight.
There were only two drawbacks; The first was that the beach is not on the property and you have to take a 5 minute bus drive to reach it -a very nice beach though-. And i was advised by the front office manager that as the Golf course surrounds the hotel they could not have a beach on the property and have swimmers walking around while golf balls are flying everywhere. This I found to be a logical explanation. The second is that they still have CRT TVs! Well, maybe it's a touch of history but seriously they should install LED TVs as that is the only real drwback in this otherwise quite exceptional hotel. I will definitely be staying there again, and I am strongly recommending it to my friends.
