Wished I had spent more money on a better hotel, it says it was four stars but don't believe it....I'm being nice by giving it two.
Stays at hotel ibis or motel one are cleaner and better.
I had to reread all the reviews on here I still can believe that it is the same hotel we stayed at.
It is a shame there is no category just for food and drink. There would be no stars given.
Possibly the worst ever.
No variety and badly cooked with no flavour. It was not just me , almost everyone was complaining... 2 lovely Dutch ladies even brought mayonnaise to every meal because the chicken was so dry.
The outside of the hotel was a construction site...
Waiters were rude and ignored me on a regular basis , I went two mornings with no coffee.
The pool was nice and the rooms were ok.
However the soap dispenser fell off in my hand and they cleaned the room but didn't leave any toilet paper.
Drinks were served in whatever glass or cup was on hand , I got wine in a tumbler and people got beer in wine glasses.....and twice there was remnants of other alcohol in there.
The beach was beautiful but soooo badly kept. Rubbish everywhere and one sunbed was smeared in bird feces.
A mother and daughter checked in and went to their room and there was actual excrement in their bed that the staff had made....NOT acceptable..

We enjoyed are selves because we chose to not let the bad hotel and service get us down, I couldn't wait to get back to Germany just to get real food.

In December of this year my husband and I decided to visit Egypt as a honeymoon. Was planned budget ,we so long peering into hotels, chose Shedvan Festival . And do not regret a single minute ! I had already contacted with the hotel management with request to provide a good number, so a special thanks to the concierges of the work with tourists Yulia and Irina .
The hotel has a large green territory , very clean . 3 large beaches - is enough space for all visitors of the hotel. Beaches probably one of the best on the coast ! The rooms are spacious and bright . We lived in the Building number 7 , we were more than satisfied. Every day we met a beautiful view of the sea. Room cleaning daily . Underwear for 12 days changed 5 times , more than enough ! In the room everything is working properly , no claims can not be.
Every day at the restaurant we met smiling restaurant administrator Mohamed . Special thanks to him , he's a real pro! To met such a stream of tourists who behave in a boorish, and he remain so attentive , it's a big job! The best impressions to bartender Said , no reaction to the audacity of tourists , professional work and responsiveness!
The breakfasts and lunches , and dinners were very tasty. There was always plenty to choose from . Meat, vegetables, fruit, sweets and pastries - all abound ! Thanks to the chefs for their work and attention !
The whole day was an opportunity to have a rest as well as spend time actively - thanks animator team! Every evening was interestinga program,it was not boring ! Thanks guys , you are very good !
Who lacked the evening program , could always go on the beach in Atlantic pearl restaurant . There every evening disco, shisha and pleasant service . Special thanks to Ali , he evoked warm feelings all visitors !
Hotel have some minus, need a small hotel renovation , but thanks for the service and attitude of the staff, we did not pay any attention on this ! The hotel management with respect and encouragement to tourists who continue stay their choice at this hotel! We are honored to be invited to such a dinner as newlyweds .
What can I say - just thank you for a lovely stay! We will come back to you and to all of my tourists , I will recommend this hotel! Such a warm atmosphere should be cherished !

We were vacationing with the family. All of us were enthusiastic about the rest. This is a very nice hotel. The room was always clean. The food is good , but not enough variety . There are a tasty snack, especially the pizza . Thank you to all the kitchen staff , special thanks to the waiter Mohamed .
The hotel grounds are large and beautiful . We wanted to be everywhere at once. On the beach there is always sun beds and mattresses. Give towels. There is a small water park, great fun for the kids.
A word about the animation team . Every day they organized for us morning gym, volleyball, water aerobics , dance, shows. You are very funny guys : Fabio , Buto , Alex, Shengi .
The hotel has a very friendly atmosphere . Always greeted you with a smile. All the people are hardworking .
Thank you for a pleasant time , we miss you . We wish you good luck and wish you funny and good guests. Hello from Russia . Julia, Lily , Julia , Alexandra

Hi everybody,

we are a young couple from Hungary, we was theree at 11-21 of august 2013.
To start, in the tripadvisor map this hotel is marked in a wrong place, if you want to be sure, check google maps! The right place is next to shedwan garden!
This hotel has two parts, one is four stars hotel, this is renewd this year, very good rooms, minimal style, nice. And there is the other part, it has three stars, this part is old hotel, don't belive the pictures from the hotel stuff, it's a lie. This hotel part is old, some of the rooms are ugly, but you can get nice ones also. AC is working and of course more money for the reception better room you get! :)
The new part and old part has the same food, which is not so bad, but it's always the same, nothing special. It will be good for a week, but for more it will be boring. The diner place is not the same for the two part, the new one is very good, the old one is dirty and dirty. :(
The stuff is great, they are nice, frendly, if you are good with the, they will talk with you and very frendly.
In the three star part there are 90% of the guests are russian, they are not so nice peoples, but it' ok.
The important thing, that the two hotels have the same beach, whic is very big, has three different lagune. This is the biggest and best beach in Hurghada, very good, you can swim in it, snorcel next to the pier. We saw murena also in the near. Very very good beach, absolutely! The beach deck chairs are also very old and the pads are dirty and torn, but you will get towels and with that, it can be enjoyable.
The worst thing, that in the beach you can not get cold beer, wrong point, you have to walk 200 meter for it. :( The alcohol drinks are very bad, don't try it, egypt made, not import.
So all together, if you go, go in the four star part, there will be great, the beach is super, for cold beer you has to walk. The three star part, is old and smelling bad, don't chose that part!

We was in the old part, so in my rating I will rate the three star part!

Room Tip: 407, beds are fine, AC working, baths was ok, smelling bad!

I'm here now, two rooms were stolen, money, cell phones and cameras were taken.
This is terrible.
Concerning food, it's the worst ever. For two days now, the salad was too bad.
Concerning rooms, some are ok and others are too bad. For example, my friend was in room 904 and after He entered the room He figured out that the door can not be closed ! I was supposed to be in room 5109 then they apologized because AC is not working !
Will never come again

Older but still enjoyable hotel with very kind stuff.
There were 2 beaches both with laguna. Beaches were like hard trampled sand, with some small rocks. Very beautifull coral with color fishes was located at the farther beach.
Quality of food was very good, but weaker variety. For lunch and dinner was almost always (every other day) the same food. Fish, chicken, beef, vegetables, many salads, 2 kind of soup, very good cakes. Breakfast was excellent.
