“Amazing staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

This was our first visit to Egypt! And believe me this resort and staff made it special for us!
The resort is a nice size and kept amazingly clean and tidy, Rooms are kept spotless, and to a high standard!
Meals can be a bit samey but still always something for everyone!
Entertainment team work so hard to keep you amused, and always smiling. Keep up the good work guys!
Most of the waiting staff are always happy to help and again always smiling.... Even when certain Russians are incredibly rude to them....
Would like to mention a few members of staff who possibly are the cream of the hotel!
2 guys working at the beach bar, they made our stay there even better! Omar and Bassem! You 2 are the nicest guys going, Keep up the good work guys!

And finally! This must go out to Micheal! He has the spice shop in the hotel! He is the friendliest, nicest guy going! And it's most definitely his fault that we have booked to come back "home" next year! He is a must go visit, And makes the best coffee in the hotel, And the hibiscus tea is yummy!
The lagoon Is a really nice place to spend your days there!
And can highly recommend the boat trips! Go find Gamil, he does a good price and the boats are at the resort!

Can't wait to go back soon!
Thanks to everyone at Sunrise!

The hotel was ok but very tired in need of renovation. Hotel staff lovely. It's extremely annoying with the touts coming to your bed when your sunbathing outside even when you have a red flag up saying you want to be left alone.
Probably would not go again. But
The dive centre on site is fantastic really recommend them.

Having recently returned from a 2 week break in this hotel I thought I would write my review having never done this before, I had never fancied going to Egypt but after my break here I will definitely be back, The hotel was very clean & tidy There was plenty of space to sit & relax, there was a large range of food served in 4 restaurants & a beach bar, This trip was for my sons 18th birthday the staff & entertainment team made him feel very special which made this his best ever holiday. The customer service was above & beyond which helped make this a thoroughly relaxing & enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: Sea views are excellent

Returned recently from this hotel after a one week stay. The Hotel is in a great location, near the main town, 5 minutes up the road, plenty of shops, bars and cafes, although we were all inclusive, it's good to have a change of scene. Don't be scared, everyone is friendly if a little enthusiastic with the usual Egyptian hard sell, but all done with a sense of humour, bar prices are incredibly cheap. There are a lot of shops at the Hotel selling everything you could want too. British Hotel and restaurant staff could learn a thing or two from the staff here, nothing was too much trouble, the room cleaner was great with towel sculptures every day and a very clean room. he was always asking us "Everything good?" Our mattress was very uncomfortable, but was changed right away.
Its an adult only hotel too, so no screaming kids doing yer 'ed in !
An incredible choice of food at the restaurants, you WILL put on weight! Different theme nights too with Indian, Morrocan, Egyptian, British roasts etc, quality was superb. All inclusive drinks were good too, beers, spirits, mixers,wines and cocktails. There is a private beach with it's own island and lagoon as well as a good swimming pool. We also took advantage of the Spa, a 2 hour massage,steam,sauna,jacuzzi, chocolate rub etc, absolute bliss!
Well done to ALL the staff here, the very best, Thank you so much Hamada, the Duty Manager who looked after everyone, especially us! x Graeme and Alison x

Just returned from an amazing week at Sunrise Holidays. Excellent service and excellent location.

Room: After reading suggestions of emailing the hotel requesting a room with a large balcony and refurbished bathroom I did this and was rewarded with a fabulous room, so I would highly recommend emailing the hotel no more than two weeks in advance of travelling. We had a lovely room (449) overlooking the pool and the sea and had a table, two chairs and a sunlounger on our balcony.

Food/Drink: Lots of variety, all very tasty, beach bar for lunch is good offering burgers, chips, pizza made to order. Lunch can also be taken at the pool bar and the main restaurant. Three main restaurants for evening meal one of which is a la carte which needs to be booked the day before. Good variety of drinks; beer, wine, cocktails, soft drinks. Bottled water included. All excellent, no complaints at all.

Beach/pool: Plenty of sunbeds around each area, if you have your favourite spot you do need to be up early, but mostly beds can be found without too much trouble. No need to take beach towels as they are changeable daily, along with a red flag to stop various sellers from hassling you. However we didn't find them too much of a problem, a polite no thank you and off they go, they weren't as bad as we were expecting.

Trips: We opted to book a day trip snorkelling with a stop at Paradise Island, highly recommend this trip. We booked with the guys on the beach, getting on the boat from the jetty at the hotel and returning there, no need to wait for pick ups etc. It was around £30 each, from 8.30am till 4.30pm. It was my first time at snorkelling and was a little nervous but it was a fantastic trip.

Entertainment: In our opinion, not great. The animation team did very little and the singers in the evening were not great, although we did find them amusing. However it didn't spoil our holiday as we were happy to relax. Some of the shows later in the evening however were fantastic. All evening entertainment is held around the pool area, they could do with providing more comfortable seating. Bring mosquito repellent, the bugs seem to be out in force!

There are shops inside the hotel, you probably don't really need to go out, but if you do just be aware. The hotel taxi provided us with an excellent service, would highly recommend using him if you want to go to the Marina or anywhere else. We found a shop inside the marina run by an English lady, the bartering happened with an Egyptian in the usual way but she closed the deal. There are also bars and restaurants at the marina which would make a nice change.

We really enjoyed our holiday at Sunrise, and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for room with refurb bathroom and large balcony

We have just returned from another 2 week holiday in this excellent hotel. We have had numerous holidays at this lovely hotel and still find it very clean and friendly. The staff are always very helpful and polite. Already looking to book for it again later in the year.

we have just returned from a 7 night stay at this hotel, it was our first time in Egypt. From start to finish we had a totally amazing experience. We arrived at the hotel at 22:30 to a very organised welcome with the restaurant still open so we could have some dinner. The room was fantastic overlooking the pool and beach, it was very clean and well kept. The food was varied with plenty of choice with seating available at all times. The beach was well laid out with plenty of sunbeds with personal space, and the pool/beach towel scheme was brilliant not having to take sandy or wet towels back to the room everyday was a blessing. The pool area was excellent once again with plenty of sunbeds available and was kept immaculate. We wanted to experience the glass bottom boat trip and Gamil was brilliant and ensured the trip met all our expectations, our captain was so knowledgeable and helpful as neither of us had been snorkelling before, he came into the sea with us and ensured we saw all that was to be seen. All the staff in the hotel could not do enough for us, they were extremely hard working, friendly and pleasant at all times from the cleaners through to the management. A big thank you to Holly one of the entertainment team whom was a pillar of support when we had some bad news from the UK. Would definitely return to this hotel..
