SUNRISE Holidays Resort
Ranked #62 of 222 Hotels in Hurghada
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I was very dubious about going to Egypt with all the conflict in that part of the country but I could not have been more wrong! What a beautiful place Hurghada is! It is still very up and coming so isn't as developed as some places i have been but that only added to the beauty of it!

The hotel is in the perfect location the view from the sea front room is unbelievable especially if you wake up early to watch the sunrise this was one of the most breathtaking sunrises i have ever watched!

The room we had was spotless and was kept that way by Mahmood who did a wonderful job of keeping it tidy especially with 2 messy girls to clean up after! He arranged towel origami on our bed every other day and was always asking if everything was ok, which it always was!

I am a very fussy eater but even I couldn't find fault with the food here! The pizzas at the beach bar are cooked perfectly you could almost be in an italian restaurant they really are that good! I didn't suffer with any sickness during my stay although my friend did have a day or 2 of being ill! There is a pharmacy across the road where the lovely George will be more than happy to assist you with whatever you need!

The all inclusive drinks had a wide variety (vodka, rum, whiskey, brandy, gin and beer) and were strong enough to get you drunk unlike many all inclusive places i have stayed in the past! There is a lovely little bar over the road called Retro bar if you fancy a change of scenery where you will pay around £1.10 for a pint or £2.50 for a cocktail which makes it an unbelievably cheap night!

The shopping is also very good in Hurghada if you take the short walk into the town! You can choose between shops with price labels or the traditional Egyptian way of bartering! McDonalds is also very close if you fancy a change!

The marina is about 5 mins in a taxi if you don't want to walk and costs around £2 to get there! There are lots of lovely little cafes and restaurants with most of them offering shisha if you wish to try this! There is also a beautiful mosque just next to the marina which is defiantly worth a visit if you enjoy learning other cultures and religions! The architecture of the building is beautiful and id defo recommend the walk there just to see it!

The entertainment team make the hotel what it is! Such a fantastic group of people i have never been to a hotel before with such a friendly team who go out of their way to make such everyone is happy and enjoying themselves! I spent 12 days doing arabic classes with the lovely Yoni who has taught me so much about the language, culture and religion of Egypt, i have never before been to a hotel that offers language classes and was fascinated by the level of patience and enthusiasm that he taught a variety if nationalities the Arabic language! The entire entertainment team Yoni, Mizo, Sully, Omar, Mido, Diana and GiGi really are a credit to the hotel and would be a big factor in me wanting to return here! They are constantly walking around between activities having a chat with all their guests and making them laugh! I was surprised by how well they managed to cater for so many different nationalities and keep everyone happy and entertained all day and night long! They really do work unbelievably hard! The shows were always funny and carefully thought out and the guys were always among the crowds in fancy dress making everyone laugh!

As a female i felt quite uncomfortable going out to parties at night alone but this wasn't a problem as the entertainment guys take you to organised parties that they know of in a minibus, party there with you and then fetch you back to the hotel at the end of the night! This was an excellent service and i felt very safe and comfortable while out at the parties knowing that I had Yoni or Mizo looking out for me making sure I was OK! I went to Colour beach club and Papas beach club and had a fantastic night both times with everyone!

Thos hotel gives the perfect mix of a quiet relaxing holiday while also giving you the opportunity to party at night! The child free atmosphere makes it much more relaxed and easy going! You can choose between lounging by the pool where there is music on during the day or going down to the lagoon on the beach to relax! There is some beautiful fish in the lagoon so id defo recommend buying a snorkel and having a look at them!

All the staff at the hotel could not do enough for you, the manager did daily walk rounds to ensure everyone was happy and the entertainment guys even came to reception when you were leaving to wave you off which i thought was a very personal touch!

The hotels motto is "welcome home" and I could not have felt more at home and welcomed by everyone there!

I genuinely can not find a bad word to say about this hotel or any of the staff there and will defiantly be returning at some point in the future! The only downside to me was not visiting Cairo due to not wanting to venture that far with all the conflict that is happening but this gives me the perfect excuse to return here which i defiantly will be doing next year!

First time in Egypt and I will definitely be coming back and staying at the Sunrise Holidays Resort.
From the moment we arrived and checked in, my boyfriend and I were made to feel so welcome by the management and all of the staff.
Shown to our room - 530 - and both of us were so impressed! Room was to a high standard and this was maintained throughout our stay by the daily cleaning from Mohammed!
Drinks were great, particularly at the pool where the bar staff were always so friendly. Great service was continued at all of the restaurants. The restaurant on the ground floor below the pool was our favourite for breakfast & lunch with the chef always coming to check on you and no queues! Dinner was also fantastic, the Sunday Roast was well worth a trip, if only for the homemade yorkshire puddings.
The Thomas Cook rep, Khalid, helped make our trip what is was - regularly checking we were happy, advising us on excursions & recommending places to visit in Hurghada.
We couldn't believe what great value for money this was and would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone considering a trip to Hurghada!

Room Tip: Definitely worth requesting a sea-view for beautiful views!

We had an excellent time staying at Sunrise. The staff were friendly and helpful. They would ask to see how everything was and would listen to suggestions. The entertainment team did a wonderful job with the variety of activities during the day and night.
The snorkeling and Dolphin trip we took was brilliant, the captian of the boat went out of his way to guarantee that we saw Dolphins like advertised.

We had a very pleasant stay in Sunrise. The staff were excellent and could not do enough for you. They were constantly checking if you were happy with everything. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. We even taught a few of the bar staff various English phrases to assist them in their job.

For an adults only resort the Entertainment team were exceptional. they always managed to keep everybody engaged in various activities. They were always polite and curtious, always stopping to converse and have a laugh with us, lets face it its hard getting adults moving off sunbeds! they also took on any phrases or sugestions they were given.

Room Tip: Do not pay extra for a sea view. most have these anyway.

stayed here in june 2012 and was very good holiday, lots to do and food was very nice.

Al inc drinks were okay but not much variety.

pool bit small but not that many people in there so was fine and also entertainment staff were friendly energetic people.

Reception staff did not have good English which was sometimes an issue.

Over all a good holiday and would recommend, only bad thing is outside people bother you when you are on the beach part to sell things etc. however you can get a red flag to show yoi do not want to be disturbed.

We were really satisfied in this resort. I would say the main advantage of this hotel is the fact that it is not allowed to children under 16 (or 14 I dont remember exactly), a great advantage for those who are looking for a quiet and relaxing place :).
The beach is so nice and the view was so nice from our suite.
I really recommend this place for those who are looking for relaxation for few days!

Room Tip: Suites are larger and cozier and not that expensive. It is worth the price.

My husband, son and I stayed at Sunrise Holiday Resort in August 2012. We'
ve now booked to go again next month. The staff were friendly & we had a great room overlooking the pool. This time we've booked a superior room so we're hoping it's just as good! We loved that it was so close to Downtown & the lovely marina with a great choice of bars & restaurants. We are hoping to go on a boat trip on the Tropicana again to swim with the dolphins. We loved the lagoon & the snack bar on the beach. It's not often we go to the same place twice as we like to try different places but, decided to return here as we loved it first time round.
