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. From the average age everything was represented. …  read hotel review

Great hotel, food, animation team and excursions!

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

Hotel was better than I expected; very clean, furniture nice and elegant (no plastic chairs or sunbeds), garden beautiful. I was surprised to enter the room and find it exactly as in official pictures. We had sea view and pool and garden view. As we were on the third floor we could also enjoy the beautiful sunset over the mountains. The room and the bathroom were spacious, nothing to complain about. Staff is pleasant and helpful, especially the reception and animation. Room cleaner surprised us every day with flowers or different decorations made of towels on the beds. We liked ... the food very much. It is impossible to stay hungry. There is a great variety of vegetables, and there is also meat and fish. There are also different deserts; as I dislike fruits in the cakes and have a very peculiar taste, even so, I could always find enough different food to keep me full. In the evening, during the dinner, we find it amusing when waiters changed for the themes, for example they had Italian night, Chinese night, Egyptian night when restaurant staff was dressed as pharaohs or so. I was very afraid of stomach problems and diarrhoea as we were warned by our travel agency, so I never tried any fresh salad (because we were told it is washed with tap water), we drunk only bottled water (we refilled our bottles at the water coolers) and we had no such problems during our stay. We also didn’t drink very cold water. I have to say that I have really sensitive stomach and often have diarrhoea, even when I am tense about something. I laughed when my travel agent said not to drink pool water, but then I accidently swallow a bit of pool water and still I had no stomach problems. The hotel is located on a distant location, so we never exited hotel area just for a walk, but I knew this when I had chosen the hotel. I enjoyed the calmness of the area. On the pool and beach area there are people offering different excursions, but they are not too pushy. If you are not interested they leave you alone. We stayed for a week and spend two days on different excursions. read hotel review
