We have just returned from our 2nd holiday at this fantastic hotel in Hurghada. We stayed 2 weeks this time as our week in November last year went too quickly. We strongly recommend staying in the beautiful villas. They really make the holiday extra special. They have a real wow factor. Each villa has access to a swim up pool...

lovely hotel, lovely food, you can walk from the beach to the coral to snorkel which is better than trying to get in the sea from a jetty, lovely staff, brilliant animation team, loved the lord of the dance show.

Being a couple that have had to save to be able to go on this trip, we had been looking forward to this trip for an eternity. The room was nice enough, tidy, plenty of space and the mini-fridge was a welcome addition. The food was plentiful, although on rare occasions it was a bit hit or miss however I...

We chose this hotel as it was highly rated and ticked all the boxes for a relaxing chilled holiday.
