Hotel is in much worse condition than we were informed by our tour agency, but still it was ok because of a very beautiful beach and nice rooms. Few areas doesn`t actually exists (third pool, sport fields, etc.). I didn`t enjoy food very much, but the atmosphere in the hotel was generally ok. Restaurants were basicly empty and most of bars wasn`t worked. The only reason for considering of coming back to this hotel is beach and yoga classes. read hotel review

The hotel is past it, so are the room was worn. I knew that and this is also ok for me. But already when i came to my room, i could a big blood stain on my bedspread see, the on the final day in my holiday there was. The bed sheets were the whole week not changed. In the dining room are missing mostly glasses and you'll have to wait and wait until the unmotivated staff new glasses brought. In terms of taste, the food was good and varied. It had nearly no europeans in the hotel, therefore only ... arabic and russian spoken. The hotel-guest relations speaks a bit of german and is very helpful. I was already 6 times in this hotel and i do not think, that i am again antue. read hotel review

Windsurfing Because of its fantastic sunny windy weather, Hurghada is considered one of the best locations in the world for both, windsurfing and kitesurfing! Especially for windsurfers, the city of Hurghada at the northern Egyptian coast is a must because it is exactly here where the Red Sea Riviera adventure begun. The windsurfing centre is located directly on the long sandy beach of the Magawish Swiss Inn Resort where equipment can be rented and stored. The training and surfing area is just enormous here! An offshore sandbank smoothes the waves even with winds as strong as 7 bft and the chop-hops are never higher than 1 metre. The site with a standing area of about 30 metres, flat waves and fine sand makes it an ideal place for beginners but also advanced windsurfers have plenty opportunities to practice straps & water starts, harness and beach starts, planning and carving jibes. The centre is equipped with JB boards, Goya and Neil Pryde rigs. Kitesurfing This IKO kitesurfing centre is also located directly on the private hotel beach next to the windsurfing centre, and is the best site in the area for kitesurfing with dedicated huge shallow areas for beginner training, separate launch areas and the famous sandbank offshore. The launching and landing area is separated from the kite training bay where the water is knee to chest deep, with a flat surface and sandy bottom. Kite-surfers who encounter any problem will be rescued by one of the cruising rescue boats. The centre is equipped with the latest equipment from Naish, Underground and X-Shooter, from pure beginner equipment to the most advanced gear available on the market. All courses, open to anyone from the age of 12, are conducted in the upwind training bay and done according to IKO standards, leading to IKO certification;
