“Too big for a proper luxury experience”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

This is an enormous and impressive resort complex spread over very large grounds with a huge pool and private beach. Everything about this place is super-sized, we’ve been in airports smaller than the reception area and the walk to the beach from the lobby area will take at least 10 minutes winding between the sprawling pool. There are plenty of loungers in secluded clusters with staff wandering around getting drinks. This is the first hotel I’ve ever been in with a dedicated staff member coming to clean your sunglasses!

Rooms are large, clean and well-equipped with plenty of space to pack away two weeks’ clothing. Almost all of them have sea views and those that don’t look out at the mountains and airport. Rooms opening onto the North side of the reception will get no sun on their terraces. The spa is very good but books out quickly the day before. The gym is ok but small so you will queue for equipment if you go during rush hours.

Our non-smoking room contained three ashtrays and had smoking rooms on two sides of it. If you have a violent objection to smoke you’d be better off at a different hotel or even a different country; smoking is allowed in all the common areas and restaurants.

This place bills itself as 5-star and while some of the facilities offered could be considered as Western 5-star standard the overall experience is like a superstore of bulk luxury. Use the room rates as a guide, under US$200.00 per night for half-board is great value for a 3 or 4 star hotel and that’s what you get here. Service levels vary in direct proportion to the tips you give. We were almost the only English people there surrounded by young Russian and German families. If you want anonymity and to be surrounded by people all the time this place is for you but for seclusion and personalised service try somewhere smaller.

Room Tip: Rooms farthest from reception are quietest and get more sun

We stayed at this hotel from 10/02/12 for one week. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel. The room was spacious, comfortable and was cleaned to a very high standard on a daily basis.
We found the staff throughout the hotel friendly and helpful.
There was plenty of varieties of food in the restaurant and were not ill at all during our stay !!
There was plenty to do at the hotel such as tennis, crazy golf, pool, table tennis, table football - even on days when it was a bit overcast.
There is a small beach belonging to the hotel where you can use free sun beds and go snorkelling.
The best place to buy gifts is from a shop called Cleopatra's on the main street next to the hotel. ( Fixed prices - no hassle )
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit this hotel again.

We had a very relaxing time around the huge pool each day. No need to leave the hotel with Massouda on hand every day from 9am at the kids club. She totally made the holiday for us...kids loved her. The activities were different each day and the children very well taken care of....they could not wait to go there after breakfast. They even have entertainment for them in the evening. I actually got a chance to speak to my wife for once.
Wifi throughout the hotel was excellent especially if you have to work. You can email by the pool. Food was good enough and very reasonably priced. Mohamed Al Razek looked after us all day by the pool and was very cheerful, friendly and helpful. All the staff were.
The area was very safe, great weather, even the taxi drivers were polite and did not hassle us too much. Great time to go there now with the reduced prices.

An excellent hotel with an excellent cost for value . However there are a couple of points of attention.
1. Upon arriving in Egypt you have to pay a $ 15.-p.p. tax. Arriving at Hurghada airport there a a lot of travelagency desk providing that service. However they are requesting € 20.-p.p! We had no Euro so we had to pay in CHF , which was CHF 20,- p.p. So more than a 50% surcharge!
2. taxi services to hotels are poorly organized. The cab driver asked for a 10 min drive $ 30,- or about 3x the price of a normal fee.
3. The wifi service in this excellent hotel is poor. Very often difficult to connect.
4. The kiosk in the hotel asked for an international newspape EP 60 while the official price mentioned on teh front page was EP 36.50
