This hotel looks good on the outside, just like the pictures we saw before booking. Comfortable and clean room, with location being convenient next to the marina (5 min walk). We had an ambassador suite but it didn't live up to its name, yes there was a lot of space but it lacked furniture. And there was a very loud buzzing A/C.
The front desk was friendly and welcoming however they didn't have the right information about excursions while we were booking to go to Mahmya. They told us no need for advanced booking and just show up there... well turns out that's a very bad idea, after driving out all the way to Hurghada (30 min) the reservation desk said the boats are fully booked! after a lot of back and forth and waiting for any cancellations they finally got us on the boat but I was very frustrated from the misinformation from hotel.
Lastly the food at the hotel was quite bad, I haven't tried anything but the breakfast, but the quality was terrible, taste was not good and strange thing, they charged extra for fresh orange juice.
Overall, I think the negatives are more than the positives and I wouldn't stay there again.
