The hotel has approximately 400 rooms (according to the description, have of course not recounted). In allgemeien we have the facility to be very clean. I would the plant as large call, but i think there is in Egypt far from larger plants. The guests in the hotel are 85% russians and Poland.

Just returned from Amwaj and it was fantastic. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. And they DONT expect tips. The rooms are clean and big enough for the family. The pools are great and the animation team keep you entertained. There is plenty of bars to chose from. The restaurants have lots of choice for everyone. The beach is kept clean and tidy. Will defiantly be returning with the rest of the family next year. Don't listen to the bad reviews some people moan just for the sake of it. read hotel review

Great hotel, food, animation team and excursions!
  • Recommended hotel
  • Families
  • Beach holiday
  • July 2015
The hotel hygiene is great, a bug here and there but it is in Africa after all so I think that's normal. Cleaners spray against these anyway so its not an issue. The overall design of the hotel is also amazing. Food is good and every day is a different theme, so you do get a little bit of a taste of Egyptian food, however most dishes are Western. The animation team is amazing, there are a few from the team who stand out and are clearly a favourite among customers (because they are so fun!) but overall the team ... do a fantastic job with the different daily activities and keep guests involved in hotel life. The excursions offered are fantastic and my personal favourite was diving, which was perfect all the way through and the best experience of my life. I would highly recommend anyone do this. Offers are available to make it cheaper. I will definitely be going back to this hotel. read hotel review

Everything was good in the hotel. On the Towl center on the pool very friendly boys Mohamed and Ahmed. Italian restaurant good. Cleaner boy is very polite and friendly. Reception very friendly. Bedouin restaurant is good. The beach is ok, but to go to swim is little bit far away. Pool is nice. Staff in hotel is very friendly. Animation in hotel is very good, all day you have what to do! It is a pity that hotel don't provide free buses to Hurghada, taxi is very expensive. read hotel review

Very friendly the boys at the reception, we want to note Ahmed is very friendly and nice guy! The room was lovely, clean, cleaning was super !! The boy makes a wonderful little animals of towels! What upset us very much, this is a paid wifi !! On site you can not find anywhere simcard, simcards only you can get from guide ..., and guides sell it at $ 20, it is very expensive because it cost a lot less! Many thanks to the bartenders at all the bars, delicious cocktails and the guys are very funny and nice to spend time with them, specially beach bar, we enjoyed to spend time there! Also note animators funny good guys are very beautiful show, and they do not strain, as we have in other hotels! Specially i want to say that Vita is the best one! The hotel is very nice, green area, a lot of flowers, in the territory of the workers are constantly working, every leaf plucked !! He is like oasis of the desert! There were two restaurants a la carte, Italian and Bedouin, Bedouin very much, and the hotel has a seafood restaurant, but it paid! ! The main restaurant is a lot of food, vegetables, just what you want, always will choose yourself something to your taste, you will not be hungry never, but the fruit is not present, even if they have spoiled them The hotel has a wonderful beach is clean, beautiful, sandy, to go to swim you must to go to the pier, which is 400 meters !!!! Very happy with our holiday and the hotel, thanks to all at the hotel for our wonderful holiday !!!! We will advise your hotel to our friends !!!! and of course we will coming back!!! read hotel review
